Finnish Death Goddess

Smelly Spirit of Death

She is the pungent demi-goddess of rotting flesh and decay. Extraordinarily odiferous, she wafts about on a whiff.

Her name means ‘The Stench of Corpses’ and the merest hint of her exclusive personal fragrance would melt your nose.

KALMA lives in TUONELA, the Finnish Underworld, and her putrid abode is guarded by SURMA. Although she can’t get many casual visitors — the smell alone would put most people off.
