Loki: I wonder... what sort of case this'll be.
The trickster god of Norse Mythology, Loki was for unknown reasons banished to the human world in the body of a ten year old boy by Odin. Loki runs the Enjaku Detective Agency to deal with the strange and supernatural, but his real desire is to return to Asgard and find out why he was exiled in the first place.
Mayura: Maybe I'm just worried you're about to leave... and go far away. That's why!
Mayura Daidouji is an ordinary high school student who is drawn into Loki's detective agency, as well as the mysterious world of Loki and the Norse gods and goddesses. She joins the agency as Loki's self-proclaimed assistant, but she is unaware that everyone she meets is a god, goddess, or someone Norse-related, though in the manga Mayura has a sharper sense than in the anime. She seems to have feelings for Loki.

Narugami: I know you well, Loki, yet despite that fact, I have no reason to kill you.
Disguised as a transfer student in Mayura's class, Narugami is really the Norse god of thunder and sent to kill Loki, but decides not to only because he hasn't found a reason to kill Loki yet. He is often called "Narukami" by Loki. A running gag is that Narugami ends up having a multiple of different part-time jobs.
A Shikigami spirit conjured up by Loki.
Heimdall: I'll kill Loki no matter how great the sin. It's only a matter of time. By my own right eye, I swear it. Just you wait... Loki.
The watchman of Norse Mythology, Heimdall is sent by Odin to kill Loki, but it's more of a personal vendetta — Heimdall seeks revenge against Loki for stealing his right eye, and he will not rest until vengence is his.
Freyr: Why, Heimdall. Don't get so worked up. The battle between gods is a glorious thing. You should really learn to savor it.
Freyr is a mystery thief who falls in love with Mayura at first sight. He works with Heimdall and has a robotic pig named Gullinbursti. Freyr came to the human world in search of his sister Freya, who was banished to the human world like Loki.
Reiya: Yes, and I owe it all to you. You protected me, you alone, stood by me like a prince stands by his princess.
Reiya is a child who comes to the detective agency to solve an unusual mystery surrounding her. In the manga, Reiya hires Loki on the mystery her nightmares of her deceased sister, while in the anime, she hires Loki on the mystery of her mansion. She develops a crush on Loki. Reiya is revealed to be Freya put into a child form. Unlike Loki, Reiya does not have any memories of being Freya. Reiya becomes Freya when wearing the necklace Brisingamen, as well as when she becomes frightened or jealous of the female attention Loki receives.
''I loved you from the very bottom of my heart, and I knew all along that you didn't. To love someone who never notices you. To give someone the gift of love, only to have them be completely oblivious to it. Do you think it's easy to be the goddess of love? I was lonely, but I should have saved myself the trouble and never have fallen in love with you. At least then, I would never have incurred Odin's wrath in the first place. I wouldn't have suffered for you as I had did. I'll never forgive you, you hear me? Never!
Freyr's sister and the goddess of beauty, fertility, and love. After begging Odin for Loki's return, Freya was punished by being exiled to the human form in the body of a child and without her memories — that child being Reiya. As a result, Freya is vengeful against Loki for this, but in spite of this, her feelings for Loki are just as strong as ever.
