Tornarsuk is the spirit of the realm of the dead and the head of the guardian spirits known as Tornat. This is the ruling spirit above Tornak (shaman's familiar). He is depicted as a bear, a tall one-armed man or a tiny figure. Some descriptions describe him as invisible. Some say that it has a body covered with eyes, or that it is a sea monster.

Propp is indicated that he steals the souls of shamans and has the appearance of a walrus with suckers. Nansen, analyzing the word itself, comes to the conclusion that it translates as a disgusting soul.
