WITH THE DARK MOON AROUND THE CORNER, I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE APPROPRIATE TO FEATURE A LITTLE KNOWN VERY DARK GODDESS, TUONETAR. SHE IS THE DAUGHTER OF MANALA. SHE IS THE FINNISH GODDESS OF THE DEAD, THE QUEEN OF THE UNDERWORLD. NOW, PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THAT THE FINNISH UNDERWORLD WAS NOT A PLACE OF PUNISHMENT; IN FACT, IT IS MERELY A DARKER VERSION OF THE WORLD AS IT APPEARED EVERYWHERE ELSE. EVEN THOUGH IT IS THE KINGDOM OF THE DEAD, THE SOULS LIVE ON JUST AS THEY DID WHEN THEY WERE ALIVE. SHE IS THE WIFE OF TUONI, GOD OF THE UNDERWORLD, WHICH, BY THE WAY, IS CALLED TUONELA. HER APPEARANCE IS THAT OF AN INCREDIBLY, UGLY AND TERRIFYING CRONE.

IT IS SAID THAT TUONELA IS ENCIRCLED BY A DARK RIVER. THE WATERS ARE CRIMSON WITH BLACK SWELLS OF WAVE, AND THOSE WHO DRINK OR TOUCH IT ARE DRAINED OF ALL DESIRE. SHAMANS ARE SOMETIMES ABLE TO REACH THE SPIRITS OF THE DEAD ANCESTORS IN A STATE OF TRANCE, BUT HAD TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET CAUGHT FOR THE LIVING ARE NOT WELCOME.

HER COLOR IS BLACK; HER ELEMENT IS EARTH.
