History: (Norse-German Myth)- Lofn is the daughter of the goddess Freya and the dwarf Iwaldi, whose sons created many of the treasures of the gods. She is also a member of the Asynjur, seven goddesses who serve Frigga, Queen of the Asgardian gods.

(Thor I#357-359 - BTS) - As part of his scheme to become ruler of Asgard due to the absence of Odin, Loki obtained from Lofn a potion which would bind his love to Lorelei. Lorelei successfully enthralled Thor, but her sister the Enchantress conspired to set him free by making Lorelei fall in love with Loki.
