We never get to see her origin story or how she came to be a protector of the north, all we as the reader ever find out is that her father Koliak the mighty, king of the northern lights married a mortal woman which pissed off the gods. A curse was placed on him where he can never be seen by earthly beings, but he can still be seen in the form of the northern lights. His son Tanero, also shares the curse in the way that he can never be seen by white men and can normally be seen as a bloodhound. Nelvana escapes this fate.

Her powers include disrupting radio communications, invisiblity, melt metal and fly at the speed of light.
