Laufey of Jotunheim
Actor: Colm Feore
Laufey was the King of the Frost Giants from Jotunheim and the biological father of Loki.
He was betrayed and killed by his own son while attempting to start a second war between Jotunheim and Asgard by murdering the Asgardian King Odin.
His meets Odin first as the Frost Giants were seeking for a new home world, he led his army to Earth where they invaded a small Viking village and used the Casket of ancient winters to slaughter the innocent lives there. This attack put Laufey's army in conflict against the Asgardians. Laufey fought in the front lines of the war, killing the Asgardian Soldiers by freezing them.
Laufey and Odin agreed to a peace treaty, where the power source would be taken from them and neither race would attack the other and they could both live peacefully for decades to come. As the Asgardians left the battle, Odin entered a temple to collect the Casket of Ancient Winters. He also found a child who was Laufey's undersized son, left there to die, so he took him as his own.
Years later, Thor, Loki, Sif and the Warriors Three went to Jotunheim to look for an explanation for the Frost Giants' intrusion that they suffered. After a long battle, Thor killed the Jotunheim Beast, but in the chaos Laufey gathered his entire army to overpower the Asgardians. Before they could kill the invaders, Odin arrived on Sleipnir to break up the skirmish. Laufey spoke to his former enemy who attempted to reinstate the peace treaty but Laufey assured him that Thor had caused a war.
Loki allowed Laufey into Asgard, having frozen the gatekeeper Heimdall, before leading the Frost Giants to Odin, but Loki stayed behind. Laufey made his way to the unconscious Odin, knocking out Queen Frigga along his way and prepared to kill his enemy. As Laufey stood over Odin, he mocked him before building a knife out of ice to kill him. In a twist of fate, Loki betrayed and killed Laufey.
