Loki
Loki: A j├Âtunn (giant) of Norse mythology; shape shifting assistant to the gods, eventually punished for causing mischief and orchestrating the death of Balder, god of light and beauty. Bound with the innards of one of his sons, a snake dripped venom upon Loki from high above, causing him to writhe in pain.
