|Episode(s)||5.19 Hammer of the Gods|
Westerners, I swear. The sheer arrogance. You think you're the only ones on Earth? You pillage and you butcher in your god's name. But you're not the only religion, and he's not the only god. And now you think you can just rip the planet apart? You're wrong. There are billions of us. And we were here first. If anyone gets to end this world, it's me.
– Kali, 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 coming Judeo-Christian 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 Indian 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.
Kali also showed a prideful arrogance, believing if the world were to end, she was the only one with the right as the Destroyer, to do so.
Powers and abilities
- Blood magic – Kali can bind people, even archangels, to her presence by gathering a small sample of their blood.
- Pyrokinesis – Kali has the ability to summon flames on her arms and use them to immolate her enemies.
- Telekinesis – Kali could influence her surroundings with a simple look.
- Biokinesis – She could also inflict bodily harm with a thought, even to other gods making them choke on their own blood just by looking at them.
- Teleportation – Kali could teleport herself anywhere in existence.
- Higher beings – Lucifer was able to shrug off being attacked by Kali's flames.
Kali, along with Baldur, organizes a meeting with other deities at the Elysian Fields Hotel. Dean first meets her in the buffet area, where he attempted to hit on her, to which Kali instantly declined his advances. 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 from the hotel. Kali suggests, during the meeting, that they take violent actions towards the archangels. When Gabriel attempts to call Kali's plan to fight off, telling they we all be killed, Kali is able to obtained blood from Gabriel as he tries to get Sam and Dean's blood samples from. She reveals to Gabriel that she has known he was an archangel for some time,
Taking Gabriel to the other gods, she kills him to show the remaining gods that with an archangel blade, the gods can ultimately kill Lucifer. Unknown to her, however, Gabriel's blade was a fake, and Mercury would betray the rest of the gods and sell them out to Lucifer.
As Lucifer begins his killing spree, he kills all the gods except Kali, who is able to get off a single attack on Lucifer, which did little to no damage to the archangel. On Gabriel's urging, she escaped with Sam and Dean, while Gabriel confronted Lucifer.
