Situation: The ancient Norse god Loki was a cruel and powerful creature who thrived on fear and suffering. He allied himself to Lucifer when Heaven's civil war first spilled into 'Midgard' and a team of angels imprisoned Loki after Michael defeated Lucifer (this team could have included any of the currently played angelic characters).
The archangel Gabriel found himself a host and took Loki's place on Earth, remoulding the god's reputation into that of a mere mischievous trickster.
Problem: When Lucifer was freed and Gabriel stabbed, Loki was able to escape his bonds and is loose in the world once more, looking to prove that he's nowhere near as nice as the killer Archangel was! Having been reduced to an incorporeal spirit by his imprisonment, Loki would need to take a human host. An encounter with an enchanted object of some sort could trigger the possession.
Complications: Loki will be calling up a variety of demons and monsters to hunt down any of his surviving captors and generally cause trouble. These creatures are all problems in and of themselves, even when they aren't defending Loki.
Particulars/details: A civilian would be perfect for Loki's host, but obviously it could be anyone. This story would involve various characters dealing with the god's evil minions as well as the exorcism of Loki from his chosen body. If the possession is of a played character then the exorcism has to be successful unless you're looking to drastically alter the direction you're character's going in!
Angels and/or Nephilim characters would be best placed to co-ordinate attacks and attempt the destruction or re-imprisonment of the god's spirit. This can go as well or as badly as characters want.
As a plotter I can offer Jono's help with Nordic runes and other magic that would help less powerful characters involved.
There's no rush here, so if you want to use a character that's a bit busy at the moment, this can always be held in the plotting stages until people are ready.
Loki - Pagan Demonised God
Imogen Evans - Necromancer/Loki's host
Anya Feist - Nephilim
Sam Winchester - Hunter
Stabinae - Demon
A'albiel - Renegade Angel
Malach Ra - Evil Angel
Edra Ogunlana - Shape-shifter
Plot disclaimer: This is a suggestion of a plot arc designed to prompt feedback for alterations or at least leave everyone confident enough to start sorting out their own threads, nothing is set in stone here!
Things would Kick off with Imo & Eddie in a situation where Imogen gets stabbed with a kuthun knife by a Loki worshipper & possessed by Loki himself. Eddie runs away.
Eddie would likely contact Stabinae, the oldest creature she knows, for a bit of advice. Eddie would still have the kuthun knife used to put Loki in his vessel.
Mal would turn up out of curisoity to see what Loki was up to and help raise a little Hell. I was thinking Loki/Imogen might offer up some Nephilim h'orderves for Mal out of hospitality; and Anya is one of the unfortunates that Loki's beasties either capture or try to fetch.
Loki would be looking for payback against Michael and the other Archangels who imprisoned him, but Mal points out the nearest available punchbag is actually Michael's favourite little lackie, A'albiel, who's recently recently fallen out of heaven's good books and is therefore vulnerable. A'albiel would manage to get away from the pair though - perhaps she and Anya could help each other in escaping Mal & Loki?
The Beasties being raised would cause problems of all sorts that would draw Sam's attention. Stabinae has her own agenda regarding the errands Loki's beasties were sent on so she would likey run into Sam. And if Anya and/or A'albiel still have beasties on their tails they'd probably wind up running into Sam and/or Stabs.
If this lot teamed up breifly, A'albiel & Stabs experience + research + interrogating the beasties would reveal Loki can be put back in his cage using the kuthun knife Imogen was originally stabbed with, which would mean persauding Eddie to hand over said knife; then the assembled crew would be faced with a final show down against Loki and his minions.

Because a certain somebody has the knack of drawing me into the action, Stabs will be making an appearance in this plot.
Seeing as shackinjira were the dogs of war before hellhounds became the new trend, the Rogue five could be part of the assortment of beasties that loki decides to summon.
Which would be an epic fail, seeing as they're not exactly as obedient as he'd remember. In fact, only Fengari - aka ' Moon ' - would play ball at all. Mori's dead, Nidenski just wants to hide under a rock and be left alone, and Golgotha is more than a tad bit likely to have temper issues about the whole thing.
Still working on that idea.
However, the oh-sp tempting one that Edra mentioned in PM does potentially fill our worries about finding a meatsuit for Loki to posess.
Stabinae, like every other badass demonic being, tends to have important matters that require her possessing a temporary host, so as to keep her long-term one's reputation high and dry. She rarely leaves her long-term host for more than a few hours - if at all - but that in itself provides a window of opportunity for Loki.
Because she'd built a life around it she wouldn't be too pleased with the prospect of it being snatched away; though whether she took it back would depend on how much exposure/damage Loki did while using it.
Just a thought. Again, needs more build-up plotwise, though it - or suggestion no.3 - can be linked to the initial idea of the Rogues being summoned. Stabinae isn't as easy to rope into things as the other four; stealing something of hers might be Loki's way of getting her attention.
Alternatively, one of Stabs' employees could be swiped. Again, it could it be a way of getting her attention - as the badass summoner, Loki won't take being ignored lying down - and it would make it personal.
A key factor; Stabinae only ever involves herself when things get personal.
|I like the idea of the other Rogues being brought into the mix. Moriscula is deceased, so she won't be showing up, but Fengari would be more than happy to throw himself into the chaos as an NPC. |
Nidenski is in hiding; he'd be a grudging servant if summoned, doing as he's told only if he had no other choice and ready to sieze the first opportunity to flee the scene and return to his life under a rock.
Golgotha would hold a similar attitude to Nidenski, though he'd be more likely to turn on Loki than the latter.
He's the only one who appears to be on neutral terms with Stabinae; Niden avoids her, as he's younger and less powerful.
Fengari is theoretically her equal, but had been wary ever since they had a confrontation in Russia in 1462.
You can guess who won that round.

Excellent. Absolutely spiffing, Eddie; and I can't believe I didn't think of that!
Stabs is suspicious all the time anyway, but nothing would make the hairs on her paranoid hackles raise any more than idea of her Title being revealed, and used against her. The stealing of the medallion -swiped out from under her nose, perhaps; she finally locates it and when she moves in, it turns out Loki's minions have got there first - would definitely make things personal enough for her to join in.
Yes, let's go with that.
The medallion was found by a hunter, and when he died it was smuggled to his son along with many other of his personal belongings. The son now has a wife and kids, and is completely oblivious to the medallion's existence; while Stabinae took that into consideration and planned her ' visit ' to be at night, I doubt Loki's minions would have cared about whether the family were awake or not when the house was searched, and probably just slaughtered any human that got in the way.
Gruesome, sloppy... and clever. Stabs arrives to a scene that reeks of ' demonic ' activity, and the finger of blame initially points to her, which is how she's discovered by the other plot characters; who most likely - apart from Edra - will not trust her at all. Not that some moody 'elder-demon' that is supposedly on your side would be particularly easy to trust in the first place.
Tense, unpredictable, and exiting overall.
