Another name for the Elves in Norse mythology. There are two types of Elves, the light Elves (Liosalfar) and dark Elves (Svartalfar). Both were born from the creation Giant Ymir. The light Elves have skin as light as the sun, are tall beautiful and have long hair. They live in a realm called Alfime which is situated just above the earth but below the heavens. The dark Elves on the other hand have dark black skin, live underground and are skilled in making weapons and armour. Although evil they help humans with fertility.
