Kalevala is the folk epic of Finland. Finnish was one of the biggest influences on Tolkien's Elvish. The stories are gorgeous, full of action but not as bloodthirsty as their Norse cousins.

The origins of iron.  The three daughters of Ukko spread from swollen udder milk white, red and black. And from that milk poured on the Earth (so says the old  Väinämöinen  in runo IX of  Kalevala) produces various types of iron.   Joseph Alanen.

Finnish Mythology: Louhi is the mistress/goddess of the Underworld (world of the dead). She is described as a powerful witch with the ability to change shape and weave mighty enchantments. She is also the main opponent of Väinämöinen and his group in the battle for the magical artifact Sampo in the Kalevala. She has a number of beautiful daughters, whom Ilmarinen, Lemminkäinen and other heroes attempt to win in various legends. Louhi, in true fairy tale form, sets them difficult tasks.
