Fun Fact: Director Shiva Rodriguez started building her cosplay outfit long before "Father of Lies" was even written. It was a funny coincidence that she ended up introducing the film dressed like Marvel's Loki character.

Sigyn, Loki's dutiful wife.
We don't hear of her much nowadays, as Loki has become known as a handsome villain (or anti-hero) that doesn't seem to do well in relationships. When she is mentioned in contemporary books, it's often as a woman who fawns all over her husband and gets to be quite annoying.
But what kind of woman would be married to the likes of Loki?
The old myths always portray Sigyn as being completely devoted to Loki, being the only one of the AEsir who was so obviously in love with the Jotunn among them. But she was an AEsir, and that would hardly make her a delicate little flower. While some tales claim that Loki wasn't the greatest husband in the world, how would he really feel about a woman who accepted him for who he was and made such great efforts to comfort him in his times of need?

Tyr, the God of War.
He is often over-looked in modern times while Odin is now credited for being the wise warrior. When he is mentioned, it's usually as being the great hero who goes into battle on the side of all that is good.
But what would a god of war really be like?
A being whose chief purpose is to indulge in wholesale slaughter couldn't possibly be too pleasant to be around. Even losing his right hand didn't stop him from indulging in his favorite activity.

Balder, The Beautiful
Today he is thought of as being the super-model of Viking lore, a pleasant gentleman with a gentle soul that everyone just loves to be around.
Does that really sound like someone the Asgardians would love?
It is true that the old myths feature Balder as a man so beloved by (almost) everyone that promises were made by everything in their world that nothing would ever cause him harm.
But what would make such a man so popular in a world where violence and feasting were the most favored pastimes?

Loki the Trickster.
In recent years he has been portrayed as half-villain and half-hero Frost Giant, but always looking for what's best for himself. Arrogant, deceitful, and always grasping for power.
But was the Sly One always so bad?
The old tales tell of an outcast god who lived among the AEsir but was never considered to be one of them. His cleverness and skills in magic were more often than not used to benefit the other gods, even at great pain and humiliation to himself.
Who could blame such a being for looking for acceptance and finally finding it by becoming a husband and father?

Thor, the famous God of Thunder.
Nowadays when his name is mentioned it brings up images of a handsome blonde man with shining armor, a magical hammer, and a tendency to be a hero and protect mankind.
But that's not how people saw him back in the day.
The Thunderer was quite fearsome and always ready to pound the someone to a pulp with his hammer and ask questions later. Found of mead, food, women, and fighting, this brute of a god was a very far cry from how people think of him today.

Odin, the All-Father. Modern day versions of Odin portray him as a wise, kind, and benevolent ruler of Asgard.
But seriously, does that sound like the kind of god that Vikings would respect?
Legends tell us that he sacrificed an eye in order to know the future. How heavy the burden of knowing what the future holds must be! One might even try to prevent the inevitable, even if it means doing some truly nasty things.
