[_ 0127_5_0 _] While being treated as a partial member of the gods, Loki occupies a highly ambivalent and ultimately unique position among the gods, giants, and the other types of spiritual beings who populate the pre-Christian Norse religion.
His family relationships testify to this. His father is the huge Farbanti, his mother is Laufey or Nal. Loki is the father, of the giantess Angrboda, of Hel, the goddess of the underworld; Jormungand, the great serpent that Thor kills during Ragnaroks; and Fenrir, the wolf who bit off one of Tyr's hands and kills Odin during Ragnarok. Loki shows a complete lack of concern for the well-being of his fellow gods, a feature that might be evident in unclear outlines, simply by looking at these descendants of his.
With his real wife Sigyn, he also has a son named Nari or Narfi.
Loki often runs not only against social expectations, but also against what we might call "the laws of nature". In addition to the offspring listed above, Loki is also the mother-yes, the mother-of Sleipnir, Odin's shamanic horse, which Loki gave birth to in a mare after the shift in shape and courted the stallion Svadilfari.
In the stories, Loki is portrayed as a coward who cares only about shallow pleasures and self-preservation. He is playful, malevolent and helpful, but he is always dishonorable and nihilistic.[_ 0127_5_1 _]
