“What do I want? The joy of destroying worlds, and spreading chaos... Would you rather stare at a stone sitting by the side of a road, or watch it tumble down a cliffside? As it tumbles, it may, of course, crumble into dust... And yet....”
—Loki to Marth in the Tempest trials
Loki is an antagonist from Fire Emblem Heroes. She is first introduced by apparently disguising herself as Bruno, Anna, Alfonse, and Sharena. She initially keeps her true form hidden, but appears as her true self in Book II of the main story where she fights Sharena in the opening cinematic.
In Xenologue 2, she is seen discussing the Tempest with Veronica while disguising herself as Veronica's brother Bruno. Veronica quickly sees through her disguise and questions her true identity; as she knows that her brother is elsewhere. She then takes the forms of Sharena and Alfonse while expressing her surprise at her seeing through her illusion so quickly before she decides to settle on Anna's appearance. She tells Veronica that her name is Loki and also tells her that she will have to wait if she wants to see her true form. Loki mentions the rite for the Tempest, and Veronica agrees to do it. She expresses joy at seeing that Veronica knew about the Tempest all along and also tells her that she likes her.
In Paralogue 10, she receives Naglfar from Veronica, and claims that, with it "in hand, my king's vessel will move." In addition to this, she mentions building a bridge across the southern sea and having said king assist Veronica.
In Paralogue 13, Loki claims that she had ample time to prepare for the rite and she thanked Veronica for that. She also mentions that the rainbow bridge will become real and that her king and his forces will invade Askr.
First appearing in Chapter 1, Loki is about to finish Fjorm, when the Order of Heroes confronts her. Removing her disguise and revealing her true form for the first time, she challenges the Order. After she is defeated, Loki is forced to retreat, noting that she has taken an interest in the Summoner.
She returns in Chapter 2 to challenge the Order again, and this time she allied with King Surtr and Laevatein. Though she and Laevatein are defeated, her king was unscathed, as no weapons can harm him.
From then on, she assists Surtr in keeping tabs on the Order, until Chapter 12 reveals that Loki had been disguising herself as Ylgr and spying on the Order since Helbindi's first defeat. Alfonse, Hríd, and the Summoner eventually see through this, and another fight ensues. After being defeated again, she reveals that Veronica and Ylgr are in Surtr's castle waiting to be sacrificed to the Rite of Flames and gives them a map to a secret entrance. When Alfonse asks why is she aiding them, Loki replies she has motives of her own and that she is not interested in Veronica dying yet. Considering her part done, she then wishes them good luck, noting that regardless of the outcome, she'll be watching.
Shrouded by the Storm Edit
Loki appeared disguising herself as Fjorm where she meets "Marth". As "Marth" tries to get her to trust him, she tries to get him to hand over his Falchion to her, only to be stopped by the real Fjorm. After her plan was foiled, Loki reveals her true form, challenging "Marth" and Fjorm as she waits for them in the depths of the Tempest.
Loki's Flames Edit
Loki appears to be having a chat with Laegjarn in regards to the upcoming Bridal Festival. Laegjarn begin's to question Loki's motives, suggesting that Loki has an ulterior motive in mind. Loki leaves to enjoy the Bridal Festival, but not before Laegjarn warns her that if she inflicts any harm onto Laevatein, that Laegjarn herself will be the one to get revenge.
At the end of the Tempest, Loki appears to be talking to herself, dismayed that the festival is over, and how she wasn't done with the brides. However, she knew that Laevatein was eavesdropping in the background and calls her out, asking if Laegjarn had put her up to the job, to which Laevatein denies. She warns Loki that if she hurts Laegjarn, Laevatein herself will take vengeance. Loki then comments on how strong the love between the two sisters, and slyly asks as to why the two just don't open up to their own mother, to the shock of Laevatein. Loki jokes that she is the mother of the sisters, though she does not continue the ploy for very long. At the end she assures Laevatein that she herself shares the same goal as their father: The destruction of Askr.
Truly an enigma even when in her original form, Loki behaves in a fashion that is playful and mischievous, traits checked by a sadistic pleasure in watching the suffering and confusion of her foes, changing her appearance and personality in order to throw them off-balance. This extends to her allies as well, as she acts as aloof and caring, but isn't afraid to provoke and act behind their back for her own amusement and whim.
During the mini Tempest trials "Shrouded by the storm", Loki expresses a disdain for stagnation, comparing the tempests to a stone on the road when speaking to Marth, hinting at an impatience embedded within Loki's personality, although it is one that she does not overtly express frequently.

Non-Canon Appearances Edit
Loki is illustrated in the trading card game Fire Emblem Cipher with the following cards:
"Loki" was the name of a god, born of two giants, known for his mischief in Norse Mythology, and both him and this character share the ability to deceive others by disguising as other people. Loki in myth was sentenced for murder by imprisoning him beneath the earth, his arms and legs bound with his sons' hardened innards, and have a snake hover over his head, dripping his face with scalding venom. Loki in Heroes being female is a reference that Loki in myth is gender-fluid, willingly able to turn male or female. Loki in Heroes is the second character named after this Norse figure, with the first being Loptous in Genealogy of the Holy War.
