As part of the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. I’m posting about my Valkyrie world. I will try to present elements of the world without being too spoilerific 😉
So today is the letter L which stands for Loki
It’s easy to see why Loki, the Trickster son of Odin, is often cast as the villian. His is at first full of mischief, the ultimate pranskter, but then he develops a mean streak, and his jokes move from funny to destructive and harmful.
Loki is a complicated god. He is the adopted son of Odin, taken in when he was a baby. Little is known about his parents, but the sagas say he is a Jotunn or frost giant. His ability to change form confirms his Jotunn genes. Despite the family that Odin offered to his adopted son, Loki inevitably began to seek more.
Within the Valkyrie series, Loki is Bryn’s nemesis, and in many ways he is right to consider her dangerous to his standing in Odin’s eyes. At first he seems to be up to his old tricks, just having fun, but then his actions take on a more sinister tone. What does Loki have to do with Ragnarok, the battle at the end of the world?
Within the series we also see many members of Loki’s family, who all play very different roles in the trickster god’s downfall.
So come back tomorrow for M.
