The Iku-Turso is a sea-monster and sometimes God of War in Finnish mythology. His description is somewhat vague ranging between “the bearded one”, “he who lives on the brink”, “death” and “thousand horned and headed”

“Iku-Turso, son of Old-age. Ocean monster, manifested. Neither pleasure, nor displeasure.” – From the Finnish Epic, Kalevala
