Loki in a god who had the ability to change his shape and sex. His father was the giant Farbauti and his mother was Laufey. In most cases Loki helped the other gods with his clever plans but sometimes he behaved in a malicious manner towards them. Loki was bound to a rock as punishment just like Prometheus and Tantalus in Greek Mythology. Loki was also considered a god of fire.
His wife was the giant Angerboda and his kids were Hel, the goddess of death; Jormungand, the serpent that surrounds the world; Fenrir, the wolf and Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse.
