(Hindu Demon)SHURPANAKHA

Also known as SURPANAKA

Sister of Ravan and Kumbhakarna known as 'she with the sharp fingernails'.

After taking quite a shine to Rama but making absolutely no progress the envious demoness resorted to calling his lovely wife, Sita, nasty names. This was more than Lakshmana could take and he showed Shurpanakha what sharp really was when he cut her nose and ears off.

She later returned with her big brothers Khar and Dushan plus an entire army but they didn't get much change out of Rama.
