Illyana is Peter's little sister; a mutant, and consort to a devil. In a flashback to Uncanny X-Men # 160, the X-Men attempt to rescue Illyana from the sorcerer Belasco, but he manages to pull the child into the hellish pocket dimension known as Limbo. Belasco plans to use Illyana as the instrument through which to summon the Elder Gods, in order to take over the universe.

Belasco then gives Illyana the Beatrice Medallion, now possessing the first of five Bloodstones needed to summon the Elder Gods.
