JJMD follows Devi Bhagvata, Vayu Puran, Tripur Sundari Skanda Puran, Vayu Purana, as mentioned in title credits. Every Puran glorifys the Deity whose story it is. Same story can have different versions in different Purans. To avoid getting cofused in Devi's story follow her Purans. In Shivji's story follow his Puran.
As per Devi Puran Sati is divine, that's why she could appear as 10 Mahavidyas before going to Daksh's yagya. Her Raudra roop is mentioned as Mahakali, who went for the yagya. She ended her life through yogagni, when as per boon given by her, she will leave Daksh & go when he'll insult Shivji & her, at that time Daksh's punyas will get over. She had told him she will take birth to unite with Shivji. Mahakali was with Shivji as Ardhnarishwar. He seperated her from himself when Brhmaji needed Shakti for creation. He wanted to return Shakti to Shivji that's why he told Daksh to do penance to get Shakti as his daughter.
After Sati's end, Shivji did penance to get her back as his wife. Devi appered as Mahakali in front of him & told him, she will be born as Himavan's daughter & will unite with him once again.
For Parvati, DP mentions, after she was born in Himavan's palace, Mena asked himto see their daughter. She gave him divya dristito show her real form. Seeing her as Jagdamba he asked her who is she? at that time Shree Devi answered, I am ParaShakti, have given birth to Brhma, Vishnu, Mahesh, am Jagadamba. Consider me as Brhmarupa Maheshwari, am pleased with penace of both you & Mena, have taken birth as your daughter. Afterthat through the Divya drishti given by her, she showed Himavan her various forms, explaing the real truth, known as Brhma-Vidya. This is known as Bhagavati Geeta, Devi Geeta or Paravti Geeta. Then she returned back to her baby form.
This shows Even Paravti was divine, not Human. Both sati & Paravti were divine. They are Goddess ParaShakti's forms, who appears in different forms to accomplish various tasks.
In JJMD, Mahakali is still with Shivji & creation is already in progress, so let's see how they show her absence when they'll follw Sati's story.
