In Norse mythology, Dökkálfar (Old Norse "Dark Elves", singular Dökkálfr) dwell within the earth and are most swarthy. In the Prose Edda, the Dökkálfar are described as "blacker than pitch".

They dwell under the farthest root of the world-tree, near the northern gate of the lower world (iormungrundar i iocylr nyrdra).
