VALI (2)

Norse Bad God

Demi-God of Killing Loki's Brother and Running Away

Son of Loki and Sigyn and used by the Gods to extract a terrible revenge for the death of Balder.

By some kind of Fenrisization, he was turned into a wolf, encouraged to attack his brother Narfi and tear his throat out.

The entrails of Narfi were used to bind Loki to rocks. They seemed a bit stretchy so the Gods turned them into iron and then Skadi came up with the idea of the venom-dripping snake.

We don’t know what happened to Vali (2) after this. He probably ran off into the woods to become a run-of-the-mill werewolf.
