Lempo commands the demons of the forests and other evil spirits. These are called Piru, and his nickname Pääpiru means ‘Head of the Demons’. He also has a rather fierce herd of mooses, or should we say meese?
His mortal enemy is Lemminkäinen (who is actually sometimes confused with him), and there’s a lot more info we hope to investigate once we’ve figured out a way past the fire-breathing moose.
One very interesting point is that Lempo, the chief of wickedness, confusion and cruelty, is also the ancient Finnish God of Love. That may sound bizarre, but after all, love and hate are only different sides of the same coin...
