“In Norse mythology, Hel is a being who presides over a realm of the same name, where she receives a portion of the dead. She is referred to as a daughter of Loki, and is described as having been appointed by the god Odin. Her appearance is described as half-black and half-flesh colored, and as further having a gloomy, down-cast appearance.” -Hel’s Embrace by *Sash-kash

Norse God Family Tree. Thanks to Marvel, I know who Loki, Odin, Heimdall, Frigg, and Thor are, but I guess I'll have to read the Bible to learn who the rest are. Oh wait, wrong religious system.

Don't believe the christian lies about Loki! He is our friend, and, together with Odin, the most important god of the norse mythology! Snorri Sturluson was ordered by the pope to demonise Loki in the Edda, and falsly accuse him of bringing the death of Baldr about! Saxus Grammaticus tells us a different story! HAIL LOKI!
