Utilizing his insurmountable dexterity in magic and sorcery to fuel his wicked motives, Loki has made a name for himself as the Asgardian god of mischief and evil. Though he has sometimes found himself on the side of good, this trickster inevitably reverts to form.
Born to Frost Giant King Laufey of Jotunheim and abandoned due to his stunted stature, Loki was hidden away from the others of his kind. After slaying Laufey, Odin, ruler of Asgard, found Loki and took him under his wing to be raised alongside his son, Thor.
Constantly witnessing the loving relationship between Odin and Thor sparked jealousy and retaliation from Loki. Adding fuel to the fire, Thor possessed all of the heroic qualities that Loki lacked but aspired to have. Motivated by utter envy for his adopted sibling, the young trickster channeled his anguish into pulling pranks on his brother and plotting a way to become ruler of Asgard.
Possessing an innate aptitude for magic and sorcery, Loki occupies his youth by pranking his brother Thor, advancing his powers in the process. The trickster god’s mystical powers include shapeshifting, astral projection, molecular rearrangement, illusion casting, telepathy, hypnosis, and teleportation.
In addition to his magical capabilities, Loki possesses superhuman physical abilities such as an increased lifespan, super human strength, immunity to terrestrial diseases, and resistance to conventional injury. Loki elevates his powers by training in the rites of black magic.
