Kali as she appears in Shin Megami Tensei

Kali (カーリー, Kārī)? is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

A Hindu goddess associated with death and destruction. The name Kali means "black", but has by folk etymology come to mean "force of time (kala)". Despite her negative connotations, she is today considered the goddess of time and change. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation still has some influence. More complex Tantric beliefs sometimes extend her role so far as to be the "ultimate reality" or Brahman. She is also revered as Bhavatarini (literally "redeemer of the universe"). Comparatively recent devotional movements largely conceive Kali as a benevolent mother goddess.

Kali is represented as the consort of god Shiva, on whose body she is often seen standing. She is associated with many other Hindu goddesses like Durga, Bhadrakali, Sati, Rudrani, Parvati and Chamunda. She is the foremost among the Dasa-Mahavidyas, ten fierce Tantric goddesses.

Kali is a fierce aspect of Durga. She and Durga are aspects of the Divine Mother, Shakti.

Shin Megami TenseiEdit

"Origin: India. Shiva's consort and a fierce goddess of rage. She is a symbol of rage towards the Asura army. A black Kali is said to appear from the angry face of Durga, Shiva's consort. She massacres all things with her two left arms."
Shin Megami Tensei A-Mode DDS Dictionary

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

"A goddess of Indian mythology. She is one of the consorts of Shiva, the god of destruction.
The name "Kali" means "black one" and is derived from the word "kala" (black), but has also come to mean "goddess of time." Her sacred place is Calcutta, where she still retains many followers who worship her as a mother goddess. Kali is identified with Durga, an alternate aspect of Parvati transformed by anger at Asura into a fearsome form.
Kali loves blood, wine, slaughter, and battle. She is black from head to toe and has four arms, each of which is always carrying a blood-stained weapon or a severed head. However, her arms are said to have the power to grant blessings to those who believe in her.
