*** Another thing to consider, and don't quote me on this its been awhile since I read the book, but I could have sworn Loki was in serious morning after Fenrir was gunned down, along with the death of the gateway(senna), causing him ally with the four protagonists and the Olympians. He released Odin from whatever place he had him captured. Even if the modern military could gun down any of the old gods, as bizarre as the interactions between Everworld and earth are who is to say it wouldn't cause some [[{{Drakengard}} terrible]] [[{{NieR}} things]] to happen anyway?

**Eunuchs weren't always just harem guards in history. I refer you to the Assyrian Empire, Babylon, and even the Eastern Roman Empire. They were quite fearsome warriors and officers, the castration served as an insurance to their loyalty for their king, not their family, and several scholars suspect that they were the original Amazons. Maybe as a Viking goddess, she also wanted warriors who were exceptionally loyal to her?

** Remember that Senna knew what was going to happen before it did. She knew Loki was after her. That's why she reached out to the others and brought them to the lake at the beginning. She has plans for each of them (i.e. controlling David through his insecurities and Jalil through his OCD). When they didn't follow her, she was essentially playing XanatosSpeedChess through the whole series. She also kept them four alive because they were people that only she could predict and control. They were a secret weapon unlike anything else in Everworld.

* Senna's mom creates all sorts of issues. Why did they not ask ''her'' to send them home? How did she stay hidden from gods like Loki? And now that the Greeks, at least, know about her and Loki is on their side, wouldn't he go back to Plan A once he learns about her?

*** Because non castrated men would fall susceptible to her powers, rendering them useless in her present. Besides, as the above troper pointed out, she wouldn't want women, because they might play with her toys.

*** She is really sadistic in general, maybe she just castrates them for fun?

** Or maybe they require certain male brain chemistry, in which case male-to-female transgendered people would be unaffected, while female-to-male would be affected.

*** Granted, but keep in mind that Hel's powers didn't work on April. There's evidence for both outcomes, really. Whether a gay man or lesbian woman would be attracted to Hel is really up for grabs. Jalil theorizes that the enchantment is "targeted" at males, but who knows for sure?

** Senna most certainly was not powerful enough to casually dominate the minds of the core four from the beginning. It tires her out to do it near the end of the series (with her powers having increased exponentially over time) in Everworld (where, once again, her powers are a lot more impressive). That being said, she isn't powerless in the real world; she was capable of bewitching David and reaching out to him in his dreams. April and Senna both talk about how she would often mess with April's memory, and she once scared the shit out of April by casting an illusion to make herself appear as Gollum one night when they were both children. However, these are all things which presumably sapped her reserves quite a bit. They're also quite subtle and quite possibly took time to put in place, particularly with the memory-tweaking and bewitching David. David, it should be noted, was a special case as he already had demons in his closet and had an ACTUAL attraction to Senna; it wasn't purely magic at work.
** During my Fridge Logic reflections on the series, I always sort of wondered why Senna didn't take steps to eliminate the core four in the real world during Book 11. As mentioned above, she clearly saw them as a considerable threat. They were helping to single-handedly hold a castle against her army of Sennites and causing considerable casualties in the process. It doesn't seem implausible that she'd order some of the Sennites to murder them in the real world, or possibly kidnap them/their families for leverage. With how powerful she was by Book 11, there are a lot of creative ways she could have gone into the real world and taken them out, it seems. Conversely, I suppose it's possible she didn't want the attention that multiple murders/kidnappings would cause in a suburban neighborhood. The authorities investigating the crimes and tracing them back to the Sennite network dismantle the whole system. In addition, was Senna even aware that killing one version of the core four would also kill the one in the other universe?
