Loki

Post by Just.Christine on Thu Jan 01, 2015 8:31 am

Overview [work in progress]

Also known as:

Loke
Lopt
Lodur
Element: Fire [You could make an argument for claiming his secondary element is Air. He is called Skytreader, Sky Walker {holy crap! Loki's a Jedi! :;
): }]
Colors: Gold, red, orange, black
Day of week: Saturday
Day of year: Some have adopted April 1st "
April Fools Day"

Appearance: This varies a bit depending on the source. But it's relatively accepted that he's slight of build, has unruly red hair. [some claim his hair is stiff and sticks straight up, like a flame. All sources agree that his facial appearance is beautiful or handsome, or generally appealing. All the sources I've read at any rate.

I will add more later. I get terrible headaches when I sit in front of a screen for more than an hour or so at a time. I also mean to do a bit more research for this article. Please feel free to comment and/or write your own thoughts and information on any of the gods. Smile

If I may, I would love to add to this post!

Loki is the son of Laufey and Fábaurti. A few sources say he also has a close relationship with the god, Surt. His brothers are Helblindi and Býleistir. He has had three marriages. The first one which was with Glut. Together, they had two children. Ember and Ashes. (I forget their Norse names). The second marriage was with Agrboda. Together they bore three children. The Wolf-son, Fenris, who ended up being bound due to his destructive nature. The Sea Serpent Jormundgar, who was cast out onto Midgard when he became quiet large. and the Death Goddess, Hela, who is to sit in charge of Helheim. The final and last marriage he had was with Sigyn. They bore two children. Narfi and Vali. They both came to a horrible end. In the midst of Lokis punishment, Vali was turned into a wolf that devoured Narfi. Narfis entrails was then used to bind Loki.

I somewhat agree Air is His element too. Air is needed for fire to burn.
I think, if I remember right from reading Eddas, Loki's only wife is Sigyn.
It is nowhere said He was married to Glut or Angrboda.
He was with Glut, but Ember and Ashes are not His children. He had 3 children with Angroboda who was His mistress.
Hela, Jörmungandr and Fernir are Loki's, and so is eight-legged Odin's horse Sleipnir, and of course Vali and Narfi.
There is a theory that Volva, Glut, and Angroboda is one and the same, I'm not sure what to think of it, though.
Also, the time in Norse mythology is very questionable. It is hard to say what was first and what followed, at least with some stories. The myths somehow cannot be put to the timeline as we know it.

That Loki was married to Glut and Angrboda is from Raven Kaldera's "
Jotunbok"
, IIRC. It's not part of the lore.

I seem to recall that you're right Amber. I don't recall seeing it in the lore either.

Glut? You're right on that one. Are you sure about Angrboda though?

Yes, I'm sure that Angrboda is not mentioned as being Loki's wife in the lore.
She's only mentioned by name once in the Poetic Edda, in Völuspá hin skamma, which is in [url=Hyndluljoth][/url]:

"
42. The wolf did Loki | with Angrbotha win"

Hela, Fenris and Jormundgar are children of Loki and Angrboda. She is His mistress, consort, lover, but not the wife.

Why are gods so promiscuous? I mean, seriously! Odin is worse than Zeus when you think about it. And Loki? Jeez! "
Well...I distracted the horse. Now what? Hmmm...I wonder what it would be like if....yada, yada..."


And Freyja? "
Will trade sex for jewelry"


So we have prostitution, bestiality, and incest. The dubious privilege of gods? Laughing

That's right god/desses! I'm teasing youuuuu!!! What with all those boisterous, curious, naughty, and ever-horny ding dongs and vaginas.

Content removed. No point chancing anyone else getting offended, upset or hurt by my faux pas. On my own forum.

That is really harsh to say about Loki. Loki is known for helping rape victims to overcome the trauma. I would expect line like this rather on a Nokean forum.

Yeaaah, not too happy about the rape talk.

Loki's been good about my past trama (bullying and such) and I doubt he'd be cool about rape.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend. I've had trauma too of that sort. But it's in the lore. I'll drop it though. No offense intended. Embarassed

Loki is a very complex god.
Loki is by many considered to be a Trickster god.
He's also Fool, Magician and Scapegoat.
He's a gift-bringer, a very cunning god, a problem solver, a world breaker, a father and a mother, a husband and a lover, and a friend.
He's a god with a fondness for those who are different, those who don't fit in a normal A4 box;
outsiders, alternative people, those with mental problems, the gender queer.
He's a liminal god. He's a good of loopholes and back doors.

He is very complex. It's no wonder so many find the study of him so daunting a task.
He and Odin are like flip sides of the same coin in many ways. I will say that Odin is by far the darker of the two.
Loki is the Anti-Odin. Laughing
...or is Odin the Anti-Loki? Surprised

On the one hand, Odin obtains wisdom by seeking knowledge and seeing, whereas Loki obtains wisdom through the myriad experiences of being.
Odin seems to have motives and goals that drive his desire to know [thwarting the death of Balder, thwarting or forestalling Ragnarok, etc]
Loki's driving motive seems to be no more than curiosity at times. He becomes a mare but did he need to get impregnated? Or was it a case of, "
Gee...I wonder what it would be like if...."


Just some thoughts.

I've had the same issue with actually finding out if Einmyria(Ashes) and Eisa(Embers) are His or not. There are a few sources whom state that yes they are: http://templeoftheflea.weebly.com/lokis-children.html
http://www.pantheon.org/areas/mythology ... icles.html
http://loki-in-myth.tumblr.com/post/269 ... jotunheimr
http://shadowlight.gydja.com/loki.html

And several whom say that they aren't:
http://www.godchecker.com/pantheon/nors ... deity=GLUT
http://grumpylokeanelder.tumblr.com/pos ... d-einmyria

So I think that in the end, its really up to you to consider them His, or ask to find out. Very Happy

Ash and Ember as children of Fire is one of those things in the lore that is not clear if it's just a poetic metaphor or if those are actual beings. As with other unclear things, each to her own gnosis.

As far as I know, Eisa and Einmyria are the children of Glut and Logi.

When Seb was doing his 30 Days of Loki, I was rather surprised to see him say that he believed Glut was Loki's first wife and it was a forced marriage (and They had those children).

Like others, I thought it was a mix-up between Logi and Loki, so I don't count them among His family.
Also, like Erin says, it's very poetic and there's little info about it.

Found pretty Loki art. Not mine.
http://lokisbruid.tumblr.com/post/136351776229/jestershotdearass-loki-lookalike-model-alvir

I usually see him without scars (I usually see Odin with two eyes, too, it's just a "looks like a human" shape-shifter thing I think.) But this is so very Loki. I usually see Loki with no facial hair, too, but this is just Loki-like despite being unlike how I usually envision him.

Happy New Year, everybody.
