Loki also known as The Sovereign One is a character featured in Bayonetta 2, he is the "better half" of Aesir, The God of Chaos while Loptr is Aesir's "evil half". He encounter Bayonetta on her way to save Jeanne's soul from Inferno and decide to help her in exchange of his safety.
Loki was created when Aesir, The God of Chaos decided to give the Eyes of the World to Humans resulting in its split and the birth of both Loptr and Loki. Loki kept the Sovereign power, the power to control the Eyes while Loptr kept the Prophetic power, the power to keep track of humanity's progress through the use of the Remembrances of Time. Loki became the incarnation of humanity's good virtues while Loptr became the incarnation of humanity's bad virtues. As time passed, Loptr used the power of evil found in the heart of humans to retrieve the powers of the god of chaos and during the Witch Hunts, he killed Rosa and forced Loki to travel to the future to escape him as Loptr wanted his Sovereign power to take control over the Eyes and once again rule the World of Chaos as Aesir. He then transported Balder to the future and make him believe to think that Loki killed Rosa.
