PAHA

Finnish Demon

Evil demonic spirit

He may be one of Lempo’s little helpers, or he may actually be a manifestation of the devilish Lempo himself.

When Väinämöinen was fighting off demons, it was Paha who, with the help of Hiisi, gave him the shakes and made him accidentally cut himself with a mis-timed axe blow. Of course we only have Väinämöinen’s word for that. Even heroes can have an off-day.
