I love the three of them. I see Loki and co, and Odin and HIS brothers having the most interesting family reunions ever.

It would probably degrade into a wrestling match.

I can imagine them being older than him and doing things like in this picture.

Loki: Ger'off!

Well, Helbindi is used on OCCASION to describe Odin, that's another side fact. But not often and it may be a translation issue.

What is the Eddas? Is it a collected volume or a wall tapestry?

The Eddas are two books. (The Prose Edda and the Poetic) they contain passages and stories- they're a good bulk of the myths. The Poetic Edda is... well, poetic, while the Prose is... Prose.

The Prose Edda came after the Poetic, and clarifies or expands on things from it.

As a norse mythology nerd, I always feel happy when people post knowledge about such little known facts ^_^ Your precedent post about Loki and his supposedly fire power made me happy as well =D

Thank you !

If you love Norse Mythology, please do stick around. I'm obsessed, and I've taken on this project.

Once my artistic skills are good enough, I plan on taking on a comic project. I'm going to try to be as accurate as possible and transfer the myths into comic form. I think you'd like it.

If you're really interested, there's stuff that I don't post on deviantart located [link] here.

I posted something recently about books- I think you'll appreciate it.

People who work with Loki have strongly gotten the message that they are older, and sons of Loki's mother Laufey from before she took up with Loki's father Farbauti. So they'd be half-brothers. But that's people's intuition.

I've never heard that before!

Interesting.

I had the IMPRESSION they were older, too. I just don't know why, so I can't put that down as fact so I just drew it.

I'm going off of tons of my own research from multiple sources. Unfortunately, I can't say that I have any backing other than tons of books, time, and research. I'm going into mythology as my field of studdy, but that's a few years from now.

I have some help, but it's mostly me on the ohdeargods team. If you could tell me where you got this information, it would be very helpful! I love getting my hands on new material!

I know a lot of Loki's people. (I'm a Hel's man myself.) One of the greatest was Fuensanta Plaza, who was an amazing mystic dedicated to Loki and Sigyn. (The Heathen author Galina Krasskova is her daughter.) I had the privilege of being friends with Fuensanta for several years before she died (and it was indeed a privilege). She would go into trance and speak to spirits, and as Loki was her main deity, she wanted to know every single one of his relatives. It was she who first brought up those two, and she said that she'd spoken to Laufey and got this information. Later, others also came up with it separately. But it is god-connection, not written sources. And it seems that your pieces, which I've enjoyed seeing go by, are all primary source material. Which is fine, but I don't want to pretend I'm talking about anything documentable.

If you can make it to the US in October, you could come here:

There are a bunch of people coming down from Quebec. Don't know about other parts of Canada, though. It is going to be great, and there is a Loki intensive.

Galina is a friend of mine - we coauthored a book together.

You might also look on Asphodel Press - [link] - there are several devotionals for Loki, plus the Jotunbok. And of course there is the Northern Paganism site:

and the Northern Shamanism site:

Good luck!

Woah wait, Galina Krasskova?! I have one of her books! Well, had. I gave it to a friend.

I would love to attend a ceremony like that.... I just don't have anywhere to go!

I love stuff like this, and you're so lucky! I'm extremely jealous.

I would love to have other sources, but I'm a silly girl in Canada who just happens to love mythology to the point of obsession. I want to go into the mythology field, and go places and find things... But for the moment, I can't. All I have is a mountain of books and a heart full of ambition.

I wish I could see things like that, though...

Great work! Did the legends ever say whether they were older brothers or younger? They look older here.... *grins*

If you read the other comment on this page, evidently they are, in fact, older. I've never seen that before, though. I've never seen anything on them in the Eddas or in the research material I have on hand.
