personality
+ PROTECTIVE

Surprisingly, this Loki incredibly protective of the people he loves. While those are few and far between, he goes out of his way to protect them from both the world around them and themselves on more than one occasion. He will absolutely fight to the ends of Asgard and beyond, even though it often looks as though he may be abandoning or tricking somebody - it's just how he knows what to do. If he's the only one in the know, his plan can't go awry.

+ GENIUS

That comes to the second point about Loki is that he is...a genius. The vast majority of Asgardians are smart, yes, but Loki is on another level entirely. His entire life he's studied sorcery and everything that goes into it and despite being an echo of his past selves, he holds all of their knowledge close to his heart and the things they've done, their reactions and what they learned from that - Loki knows the secrets of the universe and he turns them on their head.

+ TRYING HIS BEST

He has quite literally fresh out of his canon, saved the universe. Loki is the storyteller, no longer the liesmith and no longer the 'bad guy' because that isn't what he wants for himself. He wants to do better. He's desperate to earn love and approval and seek the forgiveness for the crime that cannot be forgiven - he was the weapon that was used to kill his better self. The person he was born into never intended to become that but he is and he has to handle the fact that he has kid Loki's blood on his hands, the Loki who was adored by their brother and their people. They've turned their backs on him, now.

- SELFISH

This is one of Loki's biggest vices that he has to actively try to tamp down. In a world where he's considered and treated as a villain, it's incredibly hard to not try to grab everything for himself and hold it to his chest like a hoarder - he wants the world, he just doesn't want to rule it this time. He just wants people to care about him and in the process, he can become a little...insecure, grabby and antsy when people don't want to spend time with him.

- CUNNING

Loki's tricks have tricks up their sleeves. It's impossible for Loki to exist without trickery, but he's somebody who knows exactly why a lot of people don't trust him - which is precisely why he and Verity got along so well. She knew when he was lying to him and so he had to be truthful as possible with her and that honestly made him into a much better person.

- MANIPULATIVE

What it says on the tin, really. He knows how to get people to do what he wants them to and make him think it was their plan all along. It's the best way to get your way, he's learned.

history
Loki was not born, he was made. When the original Loki had his name removed from the book of Hel, he returned as a child form of himself - himself, but not himself. This young Loki had all of the cunning and personality of Loki, but he wasn't evil. His future was no longer written in stone, he was no longer doomed to be Loki, Enemy of Asgard. He earned the trust of the people around him fairly quickly and for once, had a great relationship with his family - with Thor, as well. That could never last. In trusting Ikol, an echo of his former selves that took on the form of a magpie, kid!Loki's soul was taken. Ikol took over the body and became Loki again, but...not the same. This was the crime that cannot be forgiven. On one hand, he knew that it was wrong - on the other hand, both himself and kid Loki have come to accept what he did. Kid Loki never had to grow up into his destiny - he died as himself. He lived and died only as himself, loved by all around him and...never the villain.

After a brief stint with the Young Avengers, during which the guilt of what he had done pounded and pounded in Loki's mind, he went to Asgard. The All-Mothers of Asgard granted him a job to erase his past crimes although without the knowledge of what Ikol had done to Kid Loki - he accepted this and he became the Agent of Asgard. One of his first missions was to save his brother from himself, having been corrupted by a malicious entity that turned him into the borish oaf that Loki often insulted him as - he was misogynistic, rude and all too eager to be a murderer of his brother. Loki ran him through with Gram, the Sword of Truth, allowing Thor to face the monster he had become and cast it from himself, becoming...Thor, once again. Loki escaped the Avengers with ease, taking back to his flat and awaiting the next mission from the All-mothers - to capture Lorelai, sister of the Enchantress and somebody both he and Thor had been romantically involved with in the past.

At a speed-dating session, Loki met Verity Willis. He allowed Lorelai to escape although he did capture his other mission, Sigurd - the original wielder of Gram and the man who had created it. During this time, Loki learnt that the influence he had captured from Thor was an influencer of a lot of his actions - and the reason for all of his missions. Old Loki. King Loki, so to speak and the Loki who was simply him in a future where Asgard was at its greatest and Midgard had fallen to Loki, all of them dead. Loki refused to continue working for the All-mothers after learning that they seemed determined to keep Loki bound to his destiny of being evil for the sake of a good future for Asgard. He wasn't willing to become their villain, certainly not one that destroyed Midgard. He had friends there now, after all.

After a scuffle with Doctor Doom and finding himself against the Red Skull with Doom and Scarlet Witch on his side, the two cast an inversion spell intended to only help them stop Red Skull. The problem was that the inversion spell had a much wider blast radius than expected and Loki was left unable to tell a lie - he was the technically morally good version of himself, but this made him into a literal Lawful Good character - a stickler for the rules and somebody that brought his friends in and put them to their deaths for their crimes against Asgard. Odin showed his disapproval at this and Loki began to question if their good was truly good, but regardless - he went to the moon and retrieved Mjolnir, wielding the hammer in a fight against an inverted, unworthy Thor Odinson. Their moralities were reverted before he could finish and Loki became unworthy again and also...still unable to tell a lie. At this point he was unaware if this was 'inversion hangover' (so to speak) or self-inflicted wounds based on his own guilt. Nevertheless, Loki revealed his darkest secret to Thor - that he had been the murder weapon and had killed his better self - and Thor denounced him, brutally beating him up and taking him to Asgard where their backs were all turned on Loki. Sif was the only one with some doubts - she was positive she could recognise the foulness of Loki anywhere, and this one did not have it. The All-mother Freyja banished Loki for his crimes.

Loki wandered the space between the Ten Realms, the space between the branches of Yggdrasil where the hardest trials took place. He encountered Odin - the one he considers his true father, who told him that he loved him despite his acts but that Loki must undergo this trial alone. He must become worthy of the title 'God of Lies' and his own power much like Thor's, and...to remember what a lie is.

He found himself once again in his apartment in Midgard and encountered King Loki, his evil future self in the apartment - who set him alight, told him his motives and sent Loki to a chamber of choices. Choose the path of evil and become the Loki everybody wanted or to end his story as kid Loki had to, dying as himself - Loki chose a third path. He chose a path that a lie was nothing but a story told and he returned to Earth, reborn as the God of Stories, no longer the God of Lies.

The Ego Death hit Loki like a ton of bricks. It wasn't a death - not in the truest form. He left behind himself. He left behind everything everybody expected him to be and rewrote himself away from anything, acknowledging what he could become and what was possible inside of him - but also acknowledging the possibility of a different future. A changed Loki. Himself. Loki faced the old gods after saving the collapsing multiverse in a bubble of stories told by himself, stories that could always be remade into reality - and he turned on the old Gods who challenged him and reminded them that they were but stories. That everything was a story told and he was the last storyteller in that moment, in that instance of the universe. He made amends with his other self, the old Loki and the one who had become what the people had wanted him to rather than choosing to be different.

No more evil. Just tricks.

Loki returned to the universe when it had been brought back to normal, giving himself a break and giving the both of them their old forms back - just for fun.
