According to ancient Norse mythology, Loki is the god of fire, and a cunning shape shifter, appearing in the form of a seal, a salmon, a mare, and a fly, among others.
Loki is the son of the giant Farbauti and the goddess Laufey, and the father of: Hel, the goddess of death; Jormungand the serpent; Fenrir the wolf; and Sleipnir, the eight-legged horse that he gave to Odin.
