Indian War Goddess

Also known as DURGHA

Warrior Goddess, and really great at killing demons

She has lots and lots of arms and armaments! You name it: Discusses, thunderbolts, flares, skulls, words, snakes and drums.

She is a goodie at heart, but when you take on 120 million demons at a time all mounted on elephants you can’t afford to mess around.

See also UMA, and if you fancy the idea of an alternative reincarnation, try KARNI-MATA.
