She was played by Felisha Terrell.
She was always barefoot and used the claws on her feet to great effect in a martial arts style of fighting.
She was a known Alpha in the werewolf community and appeared to keep to herself at the time as she didn't care what happened to Ennis' Beta when the Argents killed him.
Sometime after Deucalion discovered how to take power from his Betas, he enticed her and Ennis to do the same. She entered a romantic relationship with Ennis so Kali killed her Betas as instructed in order to be with him.
Kali did not want to kill her emissary and best friend Julia Baccari but relented. However, she couldn't bring herself to finish the job so she left Julia to die in peace.
Years later when the pack returned to Beacon Hills, she, Ennis, and the Twin capture Erica and Boyd as part of a plan for Derek Hale to become part of the pack. After Ennis dies in the aftermath of an attack, she swore vengeance on Derek.
However, her former friend, Julia, had plans of her own and when she gained enough power as a Darach, she killed Kali in a rage by levitating glass shards and projecting them into her head and chest.
In her first appearance Kali is disguised as a nurse. She stays barefoot throughout and fights with the claws on her feet. She drugs Isaac Lahey and later attacks his Mystery Rescuer in the school locker room. (Read More...)
She attacks Derek at his loft, holding Jennifer Blake hostage so that Boyd and Isaac don't interfere. After gaining the upper hand, she has the twins hold Derek in such a way that she can drop Boyd onto Derek's claws forcing the Alpha to kill his Beta. In a flashback we see that Kali killed Erica.

Kali admits to Deucalion that she did not make sure her former emissary was dead when she killed her pack to join The Alpha Pack. She tries unsuccessfully to capture Jennifer, the Darach, in the abandoned hospital. (Read More...)
She returns to Derek's loft only to find Lydia and the twins switching side. Before a brawl can commence, Jennifer arrives and easily fights and kills the Alpha. (Read More...)

- “Are you asking if maybe there was a moment of uncertainty? That when I walked away thinking she was dead that maybe I turned back? And maybe I saw her there, lying perfectly still but I focused my hearing anyway. Listened to the sound of her heart still beating....still fighting for life and I thought: I could go back and finish it or I could let someone I love die peacefully. And maybe I just kept walking.” — Kali about killing Jennifer/Julia in The Overlooked
- “I...I should've...I should've ripped your head off!” — To Jennifer before she kills Kali in Lunar Ellipse
