Nightmare and a Succubus named Zhilla Char. Relaxing after a night haunting the dreams of mortal men, Zhilla Char wandered too close to the borders of the realm of Nightmare. Having inpregnated her, Nightmare banished her to a lesser realm. Knowing that demon mothers become their own children at birth, Char vowed revenge through her own daughter who would soon be born. However when the Dreamqueen emerged she found she could not hate her father, for she had her own world which she could forge and rule as she saw fit. Over the years her domain became her prison and she began to look for a way to escape. To this end when the Astral form of Nanquato, Shaman of the now extinct indian tribe the Chickaqua appeared in her realm, searching for the sky gods in an attempt to deliver his people from a drought which was killing their crops, the Dreamqueen promised to help if he would take a small totem back to his people. The Dreamqueen intended to establish a link to the earth's plane of reality. After returning to his tribe the Shaman started a ceremony to bring forth rain, but while he saw rain falling, his people could only see demons which the Dreamqueen had sent to cause terror and thus create a psychic link to this plane. Nightmare however, had warned a brave within the tribe what was really happening through a dream. He killed the Shaman and, insisting that no-one touch the Totem , had it and Nanquato buried within a stone cairn. Once again the Dreamqueen was trapped within her realm. Hundreds of years later a creature not of her creation appeared within her realm. Going against her natural instincts to inflict suffering, she watched the creature. This creature ,Goblyn, made her aware of the existence of Alpha Flight and bought her into direct conflict with them.
During the battle against The Great Beasts at Bedlam's arctic base, Laura Dean had transported herself and Persuasion to Liveworld, which is what she called the Dreamqueen's realm. When the danger was over, Laura and Persuasion changed places again with Goblyn, but the Dreamqueen had become aware of the two human visitors and saw them as a possible means into this realm of reality. Laura became aware of a threatened danger to Goblyn and opening a pathway to Liveworld she pulled the rest of Alpha Flight through with her. Alpha arrived on Liveworld and while searching for missing comrades find themselves in conflict with the Dreamqueen's Dream Warriors.
Alphan Puck had been attempting to thwart the Chinese army, who had been trying to subdue a monastery of dissident monks. Given the choice of escaping or pulling Alpha back into this plane of reality by a monk with mystical knowledge, Puck chose to pull Alpha back, but the Dreamqueen followed. Alpha Flight found themselves fighting imagined opponents and Puck realized that the enemies were imaginary. He attacked the Dreamqueen and Laura Dean opened a gateway back to Liveworld , Puck dragged the Dreamqueen through, but before Laura could close the gateway, the Dreamqueen planted psychic seeds within each Alphan's mind. Alpha returned to Canada, mourning the loss of Puck for the second time.
Some time later Alpha Flight gathered together to discuss the bizarre dreams that each member had been experiencing. The dreams, caused by the Dreamqueen's psychic seeds had enabled her to forge a way into this reality. She appeared at this meeting and disabled the team.
Elizabeth Twoyoungmen, who was part of the archaeological team who re-discovered Nanquato's body and the Dreamqueen's Totem became aware of the Dreamqueen's intentions by the spirit of Snowbird and made her way to assist the team. Meanwhile, the Dreamqueen had made her way to the center of Edmonton. To give herself time to extend her influence over the city, she manipulated the Chinese super team China Force into attacking Alpha, by convincing them that they were actually in China and Alpha had invaded. After Alpha defeated China Force they confronted the Dreamqueen in a skyscraper, where she based her operations. It was then that the spirit of Snowbird returned Walter Langkowski back into male form. Fighting their way through the floors where the Dreamqueen had put many psychic obstacles, Alpha finally reached the floor where she was, only to find that Talisman, was there already. Distracting the Dreamqueen, Alpha had Laura Dean open another gateway and they managed to bundle her back to her own realm.
Alpha Flight, the Dreamqueen bided her time and when the members of Beta Flight were transported to Liveworld by an injured Laura Dean she made no real attempt to enter this reality, but instead sent her Dream Warriors in pursuit of Beta. Pathway managed to open a gateway and the team escaped back to Department H before any adversaries could catch them. 
The Dreamqueen made no further attempts to enter this reality, realizing that time is not really an issue to someone as long lived as herself. It was only when she became aware of the plans of Joshua Lord that she became concerned that if his plans came to fruition the Earth would become a place where no one would have any imagination or independent thought. She felt that if this scenario happened then there would be no chance of her ever being able to forge a link to this plain of reality. To avoid this she made Alpha Flight aware of Lords plans by causing them to dream of the future. Alpha Flight acted on the dreams they had had and managed to thwart Lords plans.
There are also unconfirmed reports of a further incursion by The Dreamqueen into this reality following the Joshua Lord incident. Although details are limited, it would seem that she managed to enter this reality and attacked Beta Flight within the confines of Department H. Allied with Dream Warriors dressed in surgical apparell, she is only just thwarted by Beta Flight, who used skills and knowledge gleaned from their training.
