Formidable Hindu Mother Goddess of Dark Destruction
She is a black, hideous deity into sex, blood and extermination. A bit like a female Hindu dalek without the eye-stalk.
In fact, despite all those negative-sounding attributes, KALI is Mrs SHIVA, a stern-but-fair mother figure who maintains order and rewards seekers of the truth. Her destructive tendencies are aimed at the ignorant — she aims to purge stupidity and wipe out godless idiocy. So that's all right then. No need to worry unless you are an atheist.
