In Norse mythology, Logi or Loge (Old Norse "fire") is a giant, god and personification of fire. He is son of giant Fornjótr and brother of Ægir (sea giant) and Kári (god of the wind). Logi married fire giantess Glöð and she bore him two beautiful daughters - Eisa and Eimirya.
Logi is often confused with Loki, another deity.
Logi appears by that name in Gylfaginning (Prose Edda) written by Snorri Sturluson in the tale of Thor and Loki's journey to the castle of the giant Útgarða-Loki in Jötunheimr where Loki was pitted against Logi in an eating contest. The contestants appeared to be equal in speed at eating meat from the bone, but Logi also consumed the bones and even the wooden trencher in which the meat was placed. Útgarða-Loki afterwards explained that Logi was really wildfire itself.
In Flateyjarbók, there is a mention of Logi's family:
To sons of Fornjótr are given powers to rule over forces of nature. Logi rules over fire.
