Loki was the god of craftiness and crime. He was the son of Odin; he started out good, but gradually turned into a rogue. He ended up chained to a rock face and tortured by having snake venom drip and drip on him for all eternity. His wife Angrboda collects the venom in a bucket, but when it becomes full and she goes to empty it, Loki writhes in agony and we get earthquakes.
