Loki takes the appearance of a gigantic dragon. In human form, Loki takes the appearance of a young man in his teens who has neck-length silver-blue hair and jade colored eyes, he wears a white suit with a black sleeve. The suit is also adorned with black fur and red ribbons. Loki also wears two earrings and a black ornament on his head.
Loki has a cruel, merciless, and arrogant personality. He underestimates his opponents a lot as when he underestimated Hayashizaki Kazuki however in the end he accepted him not as just a "mere human" but as Solomon's King. He doesn't seem to care about his contractor Kaya because he was only using her to get his body back. Loki's one and only goal is to make Ragnarök happen and cause havoc around the world.
Years ago Loki made his first attempt to manifest in the world. He and his contractor fought against Hibiki, the previous King of Solomon inside the "Tokyo Sea of Trees" Haunted Ground and in the end both contractors died. After her friends Kazuki and Miō were adopted from the orphanage where they lived, Kaya was left behind and very lonely. She dreamed of having power of her own, which is why she allowed Loki to bond with her, becoming an Illegal Magician. Loki planted the strong impulse to kill those two people she loved within her to twist her mind. She fought this impulse as much and she could for a long time and it drove her mad.
Volume 1 Edit
Kaya attacked the National Knight Academy, the place where Hayashizaki Kazuki had made himself a new home, summoning dragons. In the end Otonashi Kaguya unleashed a lethal attack and nearly killed her. But at the last moment she surrendered to Loki completely and he was able to fully manifest in a body for the first time. The only one with the will to fight at that point was Kazuki. Loki was astonished when he was unable to best the young man with a sword. He tried to kill him with a massive attack but Amasaki Miō took the hit instead. Kazuki then used the secret technique of his foster family to break through Loki's Defensive Magic and injure him. As Loki made his escape, he acknowledged Kazuki as a King for the first time. After the battle had ended Loki started to gather Illegal Magicians and declared war with the government. He promised to show the Divas the secret to fully manifest, just as he had. Loki began to commence guerrilla attacks on the Knight Order all over the country.
Volume 2 Edit
Kazuki was shocked when Kaya appeared before him again. Loki had decided on a whim to spare her existence and now they shared the same body. Loki decided it would be a more fun and amusing way to communicate with Kazuki, who he saw as a serious rival. Loki seemed to respect Kazuki's abilities and potential as a King perhaps more than anyone else did at the time. Loki chose to remain concealed inside Kaya the whole time while he continued to recover from the injury Kazuki had given him. Kaya insisted that she was no longer in turmoil and was perfectly happy this way, having no wish to be "rescued" by Kazuki. Kazuki had run into trouble of his own with the Norse Mythology. A young girl named Charlotte Lieben Frau had fled from Europe because being an Illegal Magician under German law carried a death sentence. The Japanese government made a pretense of accepting her as a refugee and a student at the Knight Academy. But had secretly made a deal with the Germans in exchange for their expertise and assistance in the hunt for Loki. The German had come to Japan for one month but under false pretenses so they could target Lotte. The Knight Order had been ordered to stand aside and let Lotte be disposed of on a Quest so they could claim it was an accident. Lotte was on a team with Kazuki and Miō when they were attacked by Beatrix Baumgard, contractor of Thor. Kaya had secretly provided them the diversion they needed to escape. Kazuki was ordered to take Lotte on another Quest so she could be targeted again. But he refused to stand aside and let an innocent girl be murdered.
Loki had his own grudge against Thor but had no particular expertise in close-range combat. Neither of them would have an easy time defeating Beatrix alone so Loki suggested to Kazuki a temporary alliance to take her down. Kaya insisted that Loki was not truly evil and had been keeping the Illegal Magicians in line. This had prevented any deaths from occurring (other than Miō, which they insisted was unintentional). Kazuki was told about Beatrix and her strengths and weaknesses. He also learned about the Divas being divided into two camps "Order" and "Chaos". Kazuki found it had to embrace the "Chaos" side, as it meant anarchy more or less. But he couldn't embrace the other side either, which demanded strict obedience to the Divas and was the reason Lotte had been threatened in the first place. Kaya told him she should seek friends and allies from both sides. Kazuki recognized that Loki wanted them to get closer so he could lure him closer to the "Chaos" side. Reluctant as he was to team up with them, Kazuki was given nothing but great advice and sound strategy for the upcoming battle and thus could think of no reason to refuse their help.
They are able to lure Beatrix into a battle site of their choosing and are able to use far more effective tactics against her. Kazuki risked his own safety to protect Kaya when she was attacked. Later on however she used a power that exposed her identity as the contractor of Loki. When Beatrix used a powerful technique that might have killed Kazuki and Miō Kaya took the hit and only barely managed to survive it. Kaya told Kazuki it could be the best opportunity he would have to get rid of Loki. But he would not attack an ally, something she criticized him for. Thor materialized to deliver a message from Odin. Though they had publically agreed to assist in the hunt for Loki, they were only in Japan to kill Lotte. Instead they were seeking to bring Loki back into the fold. But Loki flat refused, as he couldn't agree with their restrictive doctrines. Thor accepted that their friendship could not be recovered. Kaya could not continue the fight and made her escape, telling Kazuki he had all he needed to win the battle. Kazuki was then able to defeat Beatrix after doing a full summoning of Lotte's Diva.
Volume 5 Edit
Kazuki was shocked to run into Kaya. She had come to congratulate him on his election and was amused to find him in an awkward situation. She was accompanied by an Elf girl with dark skin who gave him the chills. The girl was named Maya and was the new host of the Faceless God Nyarlathotep. Loki had noticed the true identity of the former Headmaster Otonashi Tsukikurō. They tried to form an alliance but negotiations failed. But they were entrusted with a small piece of the Diva which they implanted in one of his research subjects. Maya was attempting to tame the Diva while he was still weakened. They decided to take the risk and try to gain a powerful ally which Kazuki told her was too dangerous. But she refused to believe he was that evil. Kaya tried to recruit him without success. She cites the corruption of those at the top. She encouraged him to join her and embrace anarchy but he refused. Kazuki used his power for the sake of others while Kaya had lost faith in humanity. Unable to recruit Kazuki, she declared him an enemy and vowed to crush him one day.
Loki and his followers formed an alliance with various Chinese sleeper agents within the Japanese government including the former Knight Academy Board Chairman Takasugi Takayoshi. The Divas of Japanese Mythology had fallen into a Wild God state The Illegal Magicians corrupted by those Divas were aligned with them. A massive coordinated attack was launched on Knight Order bases all over western Japan. They took them totally by surprise and only 200 Knights, plus a dozen third years from the Academy managed to escape to the east. The former Board Chairman and Kaya appeared on TV declaring west Japan was now the independent nation of Yamato. The fact they were using Divas of Japanese Mythology, rather than Taoist Mythology, gave them at least the pretense of legitimate independence. They began building a wall. Some Knights who hadn’t escaped to the east began causing disruptions, preventing Yamato form concentrating all their forces on the border. Loki’s followers were using similar methods in the eastern part of the country.
Third year students serving in the Knight Order led by Kodzuki Kanon fled back to the Academy to request assistance. Kazuki agreed to lead a volunteer force of high-ranked students to reinforce the border. They wound up with 150 volunteers along with the German Knight squad led by Beatrix, who were after Loki. On their way to the front lines the group fell victim to a perfectly executed ambush. Hayashi Shizuka was leading the assault and Kazuki and Kanon were almost killed by friendly fire when he realized too late that some of those third years had been brainwashed before being returned to their unit. Beatrix risked her life to protect Kazuki and Tsukahara Kazuha managed to free those girls. The Yamato forces fled as the Knight Order arrived and several prisoners were taken.
Since China had spies everywhere it wasn’t hard for Kazuki to guess there was a traitor, probably high up in the Knight Order leaking all their movements to the enemy. Kazuki was worried because Loki, Joka and Nyarlathotep were all on the same team. The fact that the Divas had abandoned the prisoners they captured so quickly conformed his suspicion. Kazuki knew those three Diva specialized in manipulating minds and hearts. By combining their powers and techniques he realized they could probably grant new hosts to enemy Divas without much trouble any time they were killed or captured. Meaning they were sure to lose a drawn out conflict with Yamato. He realized their only chance was to seize the element of surprise by launching an assault with only people from the Academy before the traitor knew they were onto them.
After confiscating the cell phones of his classmates to prevent information leaks, Kazuki led them all out of the camp in secret. He had realized there was no point in relying on conventional tactics in a magic war. He filled them in on his unconventional but brilliant strategy as they crossed the border in secret. They then surrounded the enemy garrison and despite being at a severe disadvantage in numbers they were able to drive the enemy into total disarray. Kaya appeared on the back of a dragon and ordered the troops to retreat. She offered her praise to Kazuki for this bold action. Behind her Maya was clearly terrified of heights. Kazuki was even able to prevent Hayashi from escaping and took her prisoner, though she later committed suicide in her cell. Upon questioning a Japanese Diva who had calmed down. They were told all the shrines in western Japan had been destroyed by people claiming they were working for the government, to show their devotion to the 72 Pillars. But the 72 Pillars didn’t demand such things and it was easy to guess the deception. The Yamato guys had fooled them with that simple trick, to drive them into a Wild God state. They used that to turn them against Japan and the 72 Pillars and get them to support a new state based on Japanese Mythology. If they could calm them out of their Wild God state and explain the truth Yamato would fall apart.
Volume 6 Edit
Through her connections in Yamato, Kaya had the opportunity to meet with the King of China Fu Xi. The young Emperor was a pretty teenage girl. She was adorned with so many heavy ornaments she had to constantly use magic to support their weight. She offered any aid they wanted, but Loki knew such help would come with strings attached. So they said they wouldn’t ask for help unless they really needed it. Loki knew this girl’s King Authority granted her power based on the amount of territory she controlled. But the other countries wouldn’t allow them to aggressively expand their territory without stepping in. So they were forced to obscure their efforts by using careful manipulation and deceit to give their expansion the appearance of legitimacy. One such case was Yamato, who proclaimed western Japan an independent state after it was conquered by a group using Japanese Divas. But in truth their leaders were all sleeper agents loyal to China. Through this alliance they were more or less allowing China to annex them. Loki didn’t care who won the Civil War that resulted, it was the resulting chaos he was after.
It was later revealed that there were two Chief Gods of Japanese Mythology. Susanoo and Amaterasu were the Yin and Yang and totally opposite. Normally Susanoo and Amaterasu would each nominate a candidate and they would fight for the formal title of King and the ability to use the King’s Authority. Amaterasu dearly loved her contractor Kamimura Itsuki but knew she wasn’t suited for combat, so she refused to make her an official candidate. Susanoo became frustrated about this and the fact their Mythology had gotten so weak. So he made an alliance with Yamato and Loki, though neither side truly trusted each other. He arranged to have Itsuki brutally murdered by Yamato, hoping to force his counterpart to choose another candidate. Instead Amaterasu took her contractor’s soul into her own realm and was desperately keeping it intact. Susanoo helped Yamato and Loki drive his subordinates into a Wild God state.
In the meantime they rounded up all the young people with strong magic power they could find. Many of them were desperate for power and jealous of the Stigma. When they were offered a chance to form an artificial contract with a Diva they agreed. But the irrational Wild Gods no longer had the ability to form proper contracts and wound up forcefully possessing those people at the ceremony. Quite a number of them lost their sanity and became little better than Demonic Beasts, fueled by irrational hatred of all magicians. Those rejects were left behind to guard Ise Grand Shrine. Susanoo was using them to turn it into a Haunted Ground to sap the strength of his rival and destroy her. Kazuki later infiltrated the shrine and the first instinct of Susanoo’s contractor Ikōsai Aisu was to kill him to end the war. But the other side’s plan was to make Amaterasu and Itsuki subordinate to Kazuki and have him be the proxy King candidate. There were advantages for them in that scenario. Since they no longer needed to be dependent on Loki for their power their tenuous relationship with Loki soon ended.
They were contacted by Ikōsai Aisu who told them Kazuki and Kazuha had infiltrated Ise Grand Shrine. Kazuki would become the opposing candidate for King of Japan and they were asked not to interfere with him until the contest was settled. But Kaya and a few others showed up at the shrine, having never intended to honor their agreement. She didn’t believe Aisu had the ability to defeat Kazuki. She also knew how her Power of Usurpation worked and that as soon as she defeated Kazuki would have gone after the other Kings, including her former allies. Aisu was so furious she almost surrendered totally to her Diva to seek revenge but Kazuki stopped her. He believed they could escape if they worked together. He knew Kaya could only bring a few close followers because they couldn’t let it be revealed how they had tricked the Japanese Divas into joining them. Kaya asked her followers to hold his companions back, confident she could defeat Kazuki. They were all shocked when he suddenly revealed a new skill.
The group displayed their Summoning Magic as they ran down the stairs to intercept the force from Yamato. Aisu acted offended after getting help from Itsuki but still lined up with them. Among the masked figures facing them Kazuki recognized Maya. He also recognized other Divas from Norse Mythology such as Hel and Fenrir. But he knew from past experience that while Illegal Magicians had fast chanting speed, they tended to be limited to low-level magic. He was confident in his companions facing 3-to-1 odds and took on Kaya. Kazuki easily used his improved power to overpower Kaya, who surrendered control to Loki. He summoned dragons and Kazuki used his unique skills and experience to defeat them. They are interrupted by Midgarsormr. The Yamato guys were under attack, many of the magic users had fled and asking for help, Loki figured out how Kazuki contacted his allies to signal is success. Loki and Kaya decided to ignore it, more interested in testing Kazuki’s new powers. Kazuki was able to counter skills that worked before. When Loki used a weapon, he couldn’t block, Kazuki went for mutual destruction. Loki couldn’t believe Kazuki took such a foolhardy risk to win. Both of them were in rough shape but Kazuki was running low of magic after having fought all day. He was surprised when Loki decided they should retreat rather than finish him off. It seems they were satisfied having gotten an accurate picture of his growth. Kazuki was viewed as a necessary piece of their future plans.
Since it became an international conflict when China chose to intervene directly, things would soon get more complicated. The other Magically Advanced Countries would soon step in and force a cease fire. They would then investigate the matter and make a judgment of which government was the legitimate ruling body of Japan. There was no way to be sure what criteria they would use. If there was a divided opinion it could become a stalemate until either Kazuki or Aisu won the battle and became Japan’s official King, which is just the kind of chaos Loki was after.
