Third Host

In 1000 AD, the Third Host of the Celestials occurred, during which the aliens informed they would return 1,000 years later to judge Earth's right to continue existing. While the pantheons prepared for war, Gaea planned a peaceful solution to the problem with many goddesses, among them Nelvanna.

For the next thousand years, they searched for humans representing mankind's highest ideals, to be offered to the Celestials as an offering. The goddesses placed the candidates in suspended animation, with their superhuman potential, the legacy of the First Host, awakened.[2]


Nelvanna, Goddess of the Northern Skies, left the mortal plane of existence with the other Inuit Gods generations past. However, the Northern Gods sensed that their ancient foes, the Great Beasts, would one day break through their dimensional prison and return to threaten humankind. To guard against this, the Inua wished to produce a champion, a demi-goddess child born of both man and god, belonging to both worlds.

Nelvanna appeared before the Canadian man named Richard Easton in a vision along with her father Hodiak and the Shaper. They explained their plans to him, and asked Easton to mate with Nelvanna. Easton initially opposed the idea due to Nelvanna great physical age, but the Shaper cast his magicks to make Nelvanna appear as a beautiful young woman. Easton spent one night in the realm of the gods with Nelvanna, although he returned to find considerably greater time had passed on Earth, driving him to madness.

When Nelvanna was ready to give birth to her child, the Sarcee medicine man Michael Twoyoungman was midwife to the birth. The child, Narya, was born in the Canadian North and magically bound to the Earthly plane by Twoyoungman's magic, making her a changeling with both human and divine aspects.[3]

Chaos War

Snowbird, Nelvanna, Kadlu & Tekkeitsertok vs. Mikaboshi’s enslaved alien gods

When the Shinto god of evil Mikaboshi and his army of enslaved extraterrestrial deities invaded Quidlivun, realm of the Northern Gods, Nelvanna defended against the attack alongside Kadlu, Snowbird, and Tekkeitsertok. However, when Kadlu realized they could not win the battle, she and Nelvanna decided that Snowbird (whose half-human physiology allowed her to travel between dimensions easier) should retreat to the Earth dimension to regroup. Nelvanna created a portal to Earth and pushed Snowbird through it against her will, just before Mikaboshi dealt a fatal attack to Nelvanna. [4]
