Loki and Sigyn (1863) by Mårten Eskil Winge

Loki is a Norse deity, with the ability to shape shift. He appears in the form of a salmon, a mare, a fly, and possibly an elderly woman named Þökk. The Swedish word for spider, lockke, suggests a linguistic origin for Loki's name.[1]


Loki is described as being handsome, dashing, and attracted to all the goddesses of Asgard; the feeling being quite mutual. He is quick witted, hot tempered and spiteful, but not necessarily malicious. Essentially, Loki gives the impression of being an exuberant youth, he rarely contemplates the results of his actions, but if cornered, he is able to escape relatively unscathed.[1]
