|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.
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 has the ability of pyrokinesis. 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 Hotel. 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 blade, 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.
