Sylvie Laufeydottir, born as Loki Laufeydottir, is the deuteragonist of the 2021 Disney+ series Loki.
She is, as her name suggests, an alternate female variant of Loki Laufeyson. She has been killing groups of TVA minutemen and obtaining their reset charges with the intent of using them to form a multitude of branches from the Sacred Timeline for an unknown reason. She is Ravonna Renslayer's archenemy.
She is portrayed by Sophia Di Martino in her first villainous role, as Cailey Fleming played the character young. While possessing some people or when disguised, she was portrayed by Sasha Lane, Lucius Baston, Wunmi Mosaku, Austin Freeman and Hawk Walts (who also played Shaft in Henry Danger).
Sylvie is a blonde-haired women with blue eyes. She wears a regal suit with green and gold accents, as well as a horned golden crown with the right horn broken off. Before she reveals her face, she wears a black hooded cloak.
Sylvie's presence is first alluded to when Mobius M. Mobius is investigating the aftermath of one of her attacks in a church in Aix-en-Provence, France in 1549. A boy in the church who witnessed the massacre refers to her by pointing to a stained glass portrait of the Devil, and gives Mobius a tube of "Kablooie" bubblegum she had gifted the boy. After the L1130 variant of Loki is informed by Loki to be another variant of himself, she reappears at the end of the episode, where she burns to death a group of minutemen searching for her and steals their reset charge.
Later, she kills another group of minutemen during a festival in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in 1985, the aftermath of which Loki and Mobius investigate. After discovering that branched timelines cannot be created in time periods where nearby disasters are able to negate, the two deduce from the bubblegum tube that she is hiding out in a Roxxcart shopping mall in Alabama in 2050, during a destructive hurricane. They and a group of minutemen enter the mall, only for Loki and Hunter B-15 to encounter Sylvie possessing a local sheltering from the storm.
Sylvie then possesses Hunter B-15 and later other sheltering locals as she talks to Loki. While Loki offers for the two of them to usurp the Time-Keepers, she declines this, and the two battle each other. She easily overpowers him, and then appears before him physically, where she reveals her true identity as a female variant of himself. She also reveals that she has primed all of the reset charges she stole to teleport to various periods in time before they activate. This plan succeeds as the transported reset charges create multiple branches from the Sacred Timeline. She goes through a time portal, as Loki follows her.
When Loki and herself discover the true creator of the TVA, Sylvie cannot control her rage and slains He Who Remains, his death results in the end of the Sacred Timeline. Sylvie falls down to the ground, instantly regretting her decision, a decision causing the beginning of the Multiverse.
