Imagine Loki is a lighthouse keeper on a small, uninhabited island. One day, he spots a small boat approaching the shore and sees two bodies within it. He runs to the shoreline, and discovers you and your brother inside. You have both survived a terrible ship accident, yet your brother has died in the many days that you have been at sea. He finds that you are unconscious and the lighthouse keeper hastily brings the boat ashore. He carries you to his cottage to save you, and later offers his sympathy after he discloses what has happened to your brother.
