Illyana Nikolievna Rasputina was born on the Soviet collective farm called the Ust-Ordynski Collective near Lake Baikal in Siberia where she was the youngest of three mutant siblings. Illyana's brothers were the X-Man, Piotr - the X-Man member Colossus, and the cosmonaut, Mikhail.
Somehow, Miss Locke captured Illyana along with several other of the X-Men's loved ones until they rescued her leader Arcade from Dr. Doom. After they were freed, Colossus allowed his sister to stay in the United States with Professor Charles Xavier. After attempting to rescue Sunspot and Magma from the Gladiators, Illyana was taken away by Magneto, per Prof. Xavier's request, to battle the Beyonder, where the Beyonder briefly transferred Illyana's powers to Kitty Pryde. Upon returning, the Beyonder brought-out Illyana's dark half, the Darkchilde.
Darkchilde teleported her friends to Limbo and attacked them until Kitty used Illyana's Soulsword and returned her to her natural form. Upon returning, Illyana again battled the Gladiators for Sunspot and Magma but learned that they were being held by a former New Mutant, Karma. After tracking Karma to Madripoor, then Cairo, the New Mutants were joined by Storm and all of them were possessed by Karma, save Illyana, Warlock, and Mirage. Illyana and Mirage escaped in one of Illyana's teleportation discs to a possible future where the New Mutants were evil and murdering pawns of Karma. They returned and after Mirage was possessed, Illyana and Warlock released Karma of the Shadow King who was controlling her and Karma defeated him on the Astral Plane.
Later, Amora the Enchantress kidnapped the New Mutants to Asgard. While attempting to escape, Magik used her teleportation discs and the Enchantress' magics affected the destination and the New Mutants were separated through time and space. Illyana, though, never left and was a subject of interest for Amora. Amora sensed her magic and separated the Darkchilde from Illyana, sending Darkchilde to gather the other New Mutants as head of her Nightgaunts. After the New Mutants defeated Amora, Illyana sent her to Limbo, and the X-Men rescued Illyana and her teammates.
