Case File: Aegir's Feast

Police Reports

Case Description: Aegir accused Loki of murdering his servant, Fimafeng. He claimed that Loki became jealous of the other gods' praise of Fimafeng's skills and killed him in a rage before the gods chased him away. Then, says Aegir, Loki returned to the feast and began slandering all the gods.

Case Status: Loki was found guilty of murder and libel. As punishment, he was tied up with the entrails of his son under a dripping bowl of poisonous snake venom. Hmmm.
