Nornheim, the Asgardian province is where dwell the Three Norns, the Goddesses of Destiny, and Karnilla who has become one of the most accomplished practitioners of the arts of sorcery in the Asgardian dimension. Although Nornheim lies on the Asgardian land mass within Asgard's own dimension, and although Karnilla is apparently of the Asgardian race, she does not consider herself to be subject to Asgardian rule. Rather, Nornheim is an independent country, of which Karnilla is absolute monarch.
Karnilla lives opulently in the ancient fastness of Nornkeep, attended by her servant, the aged minor sorceress Haag, and troops of guardian demons. Although there are many demons among her subjects, Karnilla's realm is also populated by humanoid immortals, just as is Asgard proper. Karnilla's relationship to the goddesses of destiny is unknown, although they are clearly beyond her jurisdiction.
Nornheim is a cave located on Battleworld which is home to the Rock Trolls and their leader Ulik. Within the far depths of Nornheim, God-Emperor Doom hid away the legendary Asgardian Destroyer Armor. Doom appointed former Dystopian Rick Jones to watch over the armor for all time as the Ancient One.
Nornheim also serves as Doom's center of power, a "wish central" to which all wishing wells over the world were connected to, and it's capable of granting wishes, even the deepest ones.
