TUCHULCHA

Etruscan Demoness

Dreadful donkey-eared daemon of the dead

One of Charun’s assistants, she is an Underworld demoness with the ears of a donkey, snapping beak of a vulture, devil wings, hair made of live snakes — and that is before she turns ugly.

When Charun has finished dealing with you, she starts all over again. Punishment of the dead is her occupation, and she tackles it with relish. Not just psychopomp but psychoticpomp.
