Kotavi is referred as an uncovered woman. She is a mythical character and is believed to be the eight portion of Rudrani, and the tutelary goddess of the Daityas. Kotavi is composed of incantations.
The Vishnu Purana
states that as Krishna was in the act of casting his discus, to kill Bana, the mystical goddess Kotavi, the magic lore of the demons, stood naked before him, in order to prevent him.
She was the mother of Banasur, the demon, who was killed by Devi Kumari. The name Kotavi is sometimes also applied to Durga to describe her ferocious traits.
