Velanna is an Elf who hatched fully grown from an egg discovered with the corpse of a Bigfin in the Region of Shadow on Weirdworld right in front of fellow Elf Tyndall of Klarn who was seeking the source of the evil behind the Night-Fangers.
After the Multiverse was destroyed by incursions, and recreated in the form of Battleworld, many of the residents of the original Weirdworld found themselves upon an all new Weirdworld in Earth-15513. This new Weirdworld survived the destruction of Battleworld at the end of Secret Wars and became part of the Bermuda Triangle on Earth in yet another reality, this time Earth-616.
Sometime later, Thundra and Tyndall traveled from Weirdworld to Earth in order to seek help recovering their friends who had fallen under the sway of another. They then recruited the Squadron Supreme and teleported back to Weirdworld with them, but were immediately ambushed by Arkon the Magnificent.
Thundra explained that Arkon was possessed by an evil madness and a pawn of another. Cut off from the nourishment of solar photon particles, Hyperion was quickly defeated by Arkon, and as Doctor Spectrum moved to rescue him, she unexpectedly lost control of her powers and exploded in a brilliant flash of light. Nighthawk prepared to strike, but was betrayed by Warrior Woman, who revealed herself to be an impostor in league with Modred the Mystic, not the real Power Princess. Arkon took out Blur and Modred downed Tyndall, then outnumbered three-on-one, Thundra was forced to flee, as Nighthawk, Blur, and Tyndall were taken captive and brought to the castle of their master who was revealed to be Doctor Druid, back from the dead.
Doctor Druid revealed to the captives that despite being dead, his soul took on a corporal form when it encountered Weirdworld, and that as long as he remained in the magical realm, he was essentially alive. He furthermore elaborated that Ogeode had built him a massive crystal atop the castle, which amplified his mind control abilities, bringing nearly everyone within this region of Weirdworld under his thrall, including Velanna and the Elves of Klarn, though for some reason, possibly related to time travel, Thundra and Tyndall were immune to his grip. Elsewhere, Thundra had found the wounded Hyperion, who was without his powers due to the lack of the Sun. Thundra explained her past and subsequent relationship with Arkon, before the pair encountered a group of Magma Men who begged them to run so that they could hunt and kill them. Skull the Slayer then intervened, rescuing them both by slaughtering the Magma Men search party.
