Here’s what you need to know: Loki will make me an offer I can’t refuse.
Look at this animal and tell me that—short of brute force implementation (I am bigger than he is, although my claws are nowhere near as sharp, nor my teeth as pointy)—this cat ever does something that he doesn’t acquiesce to.
This is an animal who knows who he is and what he wants. He is relentlessly persistent in pursuit of his goals. He has gravitas. Mess with him at your peril. A bribe only works if he would be doing that other thing anyway, and so nyah-nyah you’ve just given up a bribe for nothing. He is master of his domain (which, by the way, is also your domain, except you just live in it; he owns it). His charisma and purity of intent ensure that he will remain on the throne.
Welcome to the family: you work for the godfather now. Don’t you forget it.
