SVARTALFHEIM: the Land of the Dark Elves

ghasts creatures who can manifest as both zombie and wraith because of the nature of their cursed death; favored soldiers of Hela for her Wilde Jagd because of their fierceness and the fear elicited by their screams; can attain true corporeal form and semblance of life in Svartalfheim regions between Skull-Cradler’s Grove and Jotunheim Mountains

Húð Göngufólk Skin-Walkers, intangible spirits who possess mortal bodies, but also type of spell favored by Huntsmen of Muspelheim when traveling and hunting in Nine Worlds

Irminsul magic pillar venerated by the Norsemen; usually a tree trunk shorn of its branches, found in sacred groves, and thought to contain deities or serve as focal points between the Nine Worlds

Rudyick a Dark Elf; son of Volund

Sviddengen (the “Scorched Meadow”) Svartalfheim location of one of Ilmarinen’s Forges that was ruined by creation of the Codex Lacrimae; cursed by elves and monster-kind alike

Volund a Dark Elf who was part of the group of elves that helped create the Codex Lacrimae; supposedly died in Svartalfheim in battle against the dragon Nidhogg; father of Rudyick
