Curly is an enemy that appears in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. She's a demon who uses all four of her arms to smash things. Her name is a mistranslation of Kālī, the multi-armed Hindu goddess of eternal energy.
Kālī is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, or shakti. She is the fierce aspect of the goddess Durga (Parvati). The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death: Shiva. Since Shiva is called Kāla, "the eternal time", the name of Kālī, his consort, also means "time" or "death" (as in "time has come"). Hence, Kāli is the Goddess of Time, Change, Power and Destruction.
Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation of evil forces still has some influence. Various Shakta Hindu cosmologies, as well as Shākta Tantric beliefs, worship her as the ultimate reality or "Brahman". Comparatively, recent devotional movements largely conceive Kāli as a benevolent mother goddess. She is often portrayed standing or dancing on her husband, the god Shiva, who lies prostrate beneath her.
A lesser enemy, color swap of Durga. She advances a short distance and stops to stab rapidly with her swords. Her soul grants Soma the Curly Form ability, which transforms him into a gigantic version of Curly that rushes forward slashing and destroying anything on her path. This is one of the souls that can allow access past the waterfall in the Underground Reservoir to enter the Forbidden Area.
