|Episode(s)||5.19 Hammer of the Gods|
Kali is a Hindu goddess and one of the gods who meets to try to work out a way to stop the Apocalypse at the Elysian Fields Hotel. Along with Baldur, she appears to be one of the most powerful of the gods. She has previously had a relationship with Gabriel, when she thought he was a Trickster named Loki.
Kali appeared as a middle-aged woman with brown hair and eyes. She is dressed in a black skirt and red top with a belt with skulls on it, which symbolizes her true Hindu form.
Powers and Abilities
- Kali can make humans and other gods choke on their own blood just by looking at them.
- She can bind people and even archangels to her presence by gathering their blood.
- Kali seems capable of Flame Generation. She can summon flames on her arms and use them to immolate her enemies.
- Higher beings (e.g. Lucifer)
Kali organizes a meeting with other deities at the Elysian Fields Motel. Dean first met her in the buffet area and attempted to hit on her, to which Kali instantly declines. She had Mercury gather blood from both Sam and Dean, so that their souls would be bound to her by her blood spell, which in effect, doesn't allow them to escape. Kali suggests, during the meeting, that they take violent actions towards the Archangels. Kali also obtained blood from Gabriel's vessel and bound him to her as well.
She later kills Gabriel to show the remaining gods that with an Archangel sword, the gods can ultimately kill Lucifer. Unknowing to her, Gabriel's sword was a fake, and Mercury would betray the rest of the gods and sell them out to Lucifer. Lucifer arrives and kills all the gods except Kali, who escaped with Sam and Dean, while Gabriel confronted Lucifer.
