|“||It's hard to be a hypocrite when your guiding philosophy is, "Do whatever's best for you."||”|
|— Loki (#1171)|
|Chronological and political information|
Loki is the God of Fire and Mischief of the Asgardian Pantheon and the nemesis of his brother, Thor. He is the son of Odin and the father of Hel. He is depicted as being less pretentious than Thor.
Despite being the God of Mischief, Loki is depicted as having a much more serious personality than Thor, playing the straight man to Thor's frat boy buffoonery, as shown when the Gods are trapping the Snarl.
Loki is responsible for Hel's decreased power in World 2.0. During its formation, he convinced Hel to trade her ability to have living clerics for the right to all dwarven souls who died dishonorably. Hel did not count on Thor telling the dwarves about this and their subsequent development of an honor culture which prevents most of them from belonging to Hel after death.
After the ascendance of the Dark One, it was Loki who recognized the value of purple quiddity, and stayed Thor's hand when he wanted to try to destroy him.
Loki and Thor worked together to divert Hel's attention in the critical moments leading up to the Council of Clans when Hel's vampires had rigged the vote in favor of the destruction of the world. Loki made it clear to Thor that he was only helping him because the possibility to finally destroy the Snarl, and would have preferred to help his daughter overthrow Odin.
