Loki (ロキ, ˈloʊki) is the Norse god of deception. For the first part of the game he is under the guise of Perseus (ペルセウス, Περσεύς) to deceive Zeus and the other Olympic gods by orders of his father Odin.

Role in GamesEdit

The Warriors Orochi series has Loki, as Perseus, rebel against Zeus's machinations by entering Orochi's dimensional realm. This forces Athena herself to come and pursue him. Although he seemingly lends his assistance to the humans, he has actually manipulating them under Odin's orders. His true identity is eventually revealed to be none other than Loki, the Norse god of deception/mischief. However in reality, he wants to get revenge on Odin for slaughtering their fellow Norse friends during Ragnarok, with Loki being one of the survivors. Before the coalition’s last battle against Odin, Loki entrusts information to one of his true first mortal friends Yukimura Sanada to stop Odin’s evil scheme and avenge the deaths of Loki’s friends. Once the final battle finally occurs, Loki heroically sacrifices his life to overpower Odin for the coalition to be able to confront the fallen All-Father of Norse Gods once and for all.

Character SymbolismEdit

Perseus, the figure whom Loki masquerades as, is a mythological hero born from Zeus and Danaë, a mortal princess from Argos. He accomplished many feats for the gods and later became the founder of Mycenae. Most notable of his feat was his success of killing Medusa, a gorgon, with the help of Athena.

Loki's weapon the Mistilteinn is of Nordic origin. It was used to slay Baldur, the son of Odin and Frigg, serving as a hint to his secret identity while under the guise of Perseus. Loki as a cruel joke out of many others he committed, presented the object during a typical everyday contest where fellow gods would fling things at Baldur's body just for humoring his gifted invulnerability. The gods were all shocked due to Baldur being fatally wounded when they were all least expecting it, as the object was the only thing revealed to be able to harm him. In various texts, it was often confused with mistletoe due to its naming (and hence its plant-like design); other records have claimed it was either also a sword or a spear.
