Loki on the other hand has a name (not to mention the audience has a little bit of empathy for him) and him betraying Thanos and attempting to wrest the Gauntlet from him would be of actual significance compared to a nobody trying to do it.
The Other isn't a through away character only created for the movie. He was based off of Chthon the Elder God. I'm pretty sure Whedon is using him to play the roll of Mephisto in the MCU.
Chthon is a fictional character, a demonic Elder God in the Marvel Comics Universe. His name derives from chthon, the Greek word for "earth" and "earthly", especially pertaining to earth that was not life giving soil, but dark like that of the grave or the underworld. In some instances, Chthon is portrayed as the Marvel equivalent of the primal Devil of some kind predating that of Judeo-Christian teachings, as his creations, the N'Garai, were driven from Earth by the angel Lucifer before his rebellion against God.[1]
