Background

The son of Alfheimian thieves, Kai is a moon elf born given the name Hjuki by is parents and the alias Gerhard Alfsson. He was raised on Earth. About a century ago, his parents were arrested and are now rotting in an Asgardian prison. Kai has since spent time in Alfheim, where his grandparents have tried to instill in him the values of art, beauty and elegance that once defined his bloodline, but he's more comfortable in Midgard.

Lately, Kai has tried keeping a low profile since he's stigmatized as the son of thieves and his parents could be used as blackmail material against. Still, he's compelled to us his powers to help out when people are in trouble. To separate his Midgardian identity from his heroing, he goes by the codename Hjuki, a name known only to him and his parents.

Kai has mixed feelings about his parents. On one hand, they're his parents and he loves them. On the other hand, it's because of them that his entire life has been, up to this point, a lie. He hates the stigma they've given his name, but he knows they have good in them. He swings between adoration and anger.

Kai recently uncovered the artifact his parents stole: the Apple of Idun. It's an apple-shaped crystal that, when placed upon one's chest, it will heal most wounds within moments. He's afraid to hand it over because he's worried what the Asgardians will do to him. On the other hand, giving it back is the right thing to do. In the meantime, while he ponders his options, he uses the artifact to help the helpless.

IC Events

  • Befriended Bucky Barnes, who he fervently believes is separate from the Winter Soldier.
  • Befriended Dr. Strange. Kai values the Sorcerer Supreme's counsel, and he enjoys their talks over tea and scones.
  • Fallen head over heels in love with Loki. Though the feeling is mutual, it's not the smartest thing Kai's ever done. Now he's in the thick of Asgardian happenings in Midgard, which is the exact opposite of where he wanted to be.
  • Keeping on eye on the helpless in Hell's Kitchen, where he lives, doing what he can to ease their pain and protect them from the gangs ravaging the area. He and Daredevil share enough values and philosophies to work together, not at odds.
  • Adopts Kevin the dog, a stray he finds on the street.
  • Sidekicked by Captain America. Best disaster ever.
  • Joined the Avengers in order to make right what went wrong when Loki 'liberated' Bucky from his SHIELD prison.
  • Captured by dark elves, tortured until Bucky is compelled to kill him. Returned to Midgard by a Vanir temporarily — for a price.
  • Returned from death when Captain Marvel, Loki, Thor, Amora, Bucky and Lambert storm Hel and Czernobog's realm to rescue him.
  • Discovered he was stealth hand-fasted to Loki months ago and was extremely okay with this.

Traits

  • Alfheimian heritage: though not as strong as an Asgardian, Kai shares superhuman strength, durability, density, and a somewhat improved healing factor.
  • Water manipulation: as the tide to the moons, water bends to Kai's will. He can shape and redirect about a hot tub's worth of water.
  • Moonglow: Kai can summon moonlight, lighting up darkness with his strange silverblue aura. It behaves like the light of a full moon.
  • Illusions: Kai can create minor illusions, just tricks of the light.
  • Allspeak: Kai, like the Asgardians, has the power of Allspeak. He might speak his native tongue, but the denizens of the Nine Realms understand him as if he speaks their native tongue, and he can understand any of their natural languages.
  • Hello Darkness, My Old Friend: Kai can create complete darkness in a radius of up to twenty feet with him at the center. This is a magical darkness that overwhelms mundane sources of light and can only be countered by magic.
  • Put Out the Lights: Kai can extinguish mundane sources of light in a fifty-foot radius. Fire goes out, electric bulbs pop and fry. This doesn't affect sun or moonlight.
  • I Can See Clearly Now: Kai can see in even complete darkness as though it were twilight. Even magical darkness has a hard time blinding him.
