Bloodbrothers..... Thor, Odin and Loki. This is completely misunderstood by Judeo-Christians: Loki is not evil!!! In all pagan philosophies, you have the 3 forces of existence... Creation (Odin), Preservation (Thor), Destruction (Loki). The same exists in Hinduism: Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva....  Birth, Life and Death are one!
