Vammatar is the Finnish goddess of pain, disease, and/or suffering (other versions have her as more actively negative, the goddess of evil and misfortune). She is the daughter of Tuoni (god of the underworld) and Tuonetar (goddess of death). Her sisters are Kipu-Tyttö, Kivutar and Loviatar.

She is also a fictional character in the Marvel Comics version of the Conan the Barbarian mythos, appearing as the Witch-Queen of portions of Hyperborea, an enemy of Conan and a sometime ally of Kulan Gath.
