I know I mention Loki quite a bit, but only because I am deeply interested in his mythology. Recently I’ve been doing research into the actual manuscripts we have and the real information we have VS the information that is spread through misconceptions. Like for instance, Loki himself is more of a neutral character than an evil one as some may suggest. He aids the gods in three popular stories, and he tricks them in 3 others (and he usually has a reason) He is also NOT a fire god. That was spread by being mistaken with the Norse word Logi (fire). In fact, In written Norse myth he FAILS to light a fire. Finally, some say he has no reason to turn against the gods and lead the giants in Ragnarok, but if you look at where Loki is leading up to that, the gods turned his sons into beasts, killed one, stringing him up by his own sons entrails, and poured venom on his face until he finally breaks free. Now, if someone had done that to me, I might wage war against them as well, despite them being family. I highly recommend anyone who wants to learn more to watch Jackson Crawford’s video on Loki, then the other video about common misconceptions related to him.
