Parvati is the wife of Shiva. She is also known as Ambika or Shakti. In her aspect as Parvati she is a benevolent goddess, granting the boons of her worshippers. However, in her aspect as Kali, she is a fierce goddess, the destroyer of her foes and has a terrible visage.
The Devi Bhagavata is the collection of stories involving her, and details many of her incarnations. She is also said to possess overlordship of the Navagrahas (nine planets).
