Powers:
 
Loki is a formidable combatant in his own right, particularly as a swordsman or in the use of his various energy manipulative powers in combat situations.
Enhanced Abilities: Lokiís is the offspring of an Asgardian Frost Giant and as such his Strength, Durability have all been enhanced to super human levels.
Body Armour: Lokiís flesh is denser than a humans and it has also been magically enhanced, providing him with a high degree of protection from physical and energy attacks.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Like all Asgardians, Loki, although he is inhumanly durable, at least by human standards, can still obtain injury, also like all Asgardians, his metabolism enables him to rapidly regenerate damaged tissue much faster and more extensively than a human being. However, through the use of his sorcery, Loki's ability to heal himself is far above that of other Asgardians.
Longevity: Like all Asgardians, Loki ages at a far slower rate than humans. However, unlike some other god pantheons like the Olympians, who stop aging completely at a certain point, Loki isn't fully immune to aging.
Psionics: Loki has demonstrated powerful psionic capabilities, the full limits of which aren't known. He has demonstrated the ability to project his thoughts telepathically across great distances as well as potent hypnotic capabilities. He is able to communicate with beings telepathically, though his ability to do so is greater with beings that serve him.
Sorcery: Loki has the ability to generate and control a great quantity of mystical abilities for a variety of purposes, of which can be used to further enhance or augment his physical diagram, like his speed, strength, and stamina, but only temporarily. His magical abilities are equal to Karnilla, the most skilled sorceress of the Nine Realms. Being a telekinetic, Loki can influence the movement of objects and people with his mind, and as such, this power proves to be devastating and chaotic in nature. His known abilities include the ability to fire powerful beams of concussive force, generate highly durable force fields, bestow superhuman attributes to living beings or inanimate objects, or teleport himself or others across dimensions. He can also bring inanimate objects to life, or mystically imbue objects or beings with specific but temporary powers.
Shape-shifting: Like a number of gods or goddesses, Loki possesses highly developed shape-shifting capabilities. He is able to adopt almost any form imaginable whether it be animals, other humanoid beings, or even inanimate objects.
 
Origins:
 
Loki is the son of Laufey, king of the frost giants of Jotunheim, one of the "Nine Worlds" of the Asgardian cosmology. Laufey was slain when Odin, ruler of Asgard, led his subjects into battle against the giants. Surveying the spoils of war, the Asgardians discovered a small god-size baby hidden in their defeated adversaries' main fortress. The infant was Loki, whom Laufey had kept hidden for shame over his son's diminutive size. Because Loki was the offspring of a fallen king, Odin elected to raise him alongside his bloodson: Thor, the future God of Thunder.
In childhood, Loki greatly resented the fact that Odin and the other Asgardians favoured the young Thor, who already evinced a nobility of spirit and excelled in all endeavours. As a boy, Loki began studying the mystic arts, for which he possessed a natural affinity. His hatred for Thor grew, and Loki vowed to become the most powerful god in Asgard and destroy his foster brother to achieve this end. Upon reaching adulthood, Loki began forming alliances with other enemies of Asgard.
When Loki's inborn propensity for disobedience began to manifest itself, he earned the nickname God of Mischief. But as his deeds grew increasingly malicious, and his lust for power and vengeance became apparent, he came to be known as the God of Evil. Loki has attempted many times through the centuries to destroy Thor and seize the throne of Asgard for himself.
