When a crisis falls upon the woodland creatures, Mielikki wields a long sword with both hands and fearlessly steps up to defend these creatures she loves so much. She shields them from harm by spearheading advance attacks against the enemy.
Mielikki is the Finnish goddess of forests and the hunt. She is referred to in various tales as either the wife or the daughter-in-law of Tapio. She is said to have played a central role in the creation of the bear.
