Tarakiri,

First of all, there is a difference b/w avatar and roop. Avatar is a manifestation for a specific purpose- sometimes killing of a demon / asura, sometimes in answer to a devotee's prayer, etc. 'Roop', on the other hand is a form / description based on the qualities (physical or spiritual) of the deity.

Let me give you an example to make this clear. Krishna is an avatar but  Murlidhar, Radhika- Vallabh, Giridhari are his different 'roops'.

In case of Adi Shakti too, some are avatars of Hers. For instance she manifested as Lalitha to kill the demon Bhandasura. She manifested as Shakhambari when the whole world was afflicted with severe famine. 

But names like Shailaputri, Aparna, Girija, Shivaa are epithets given to her. The Lalitha Sahasranam lists a thousand names of the Goddess-  and not all of them can be counted as avatars.

My question:
 
Maa Durga created lord shiva and goddess kali. so from where does sati/parvati come into the picture?
since, Sihva  refused to get married and wanted to remain a TAPASVI all his life, the TRIMURTI would never complete. it was necessary that he get married. but bcoz of his nature, his wife had to possess certain qualities which only MAA DURGA possesed like Patience, tolerance, etc. so, on brhama's advice, his son DAKSH performed tapasya to please MAA DURGA who agreed to be born as his daughter and get married to Shiva. thus, SATI was born. but as sati and shiva could not have a happy life together, sati took the form of parvati and was born again. so, MAA DURGA only wanted to complete the trimurti and fulfil her bhakt's desires...thats all...thats what she does..SHE HELPS EVERYONE...without her, LIFE WOULD BE INCOMPLETE for every1 including the GODS WHOM MORTALS WORSHIP!!!!

It is a right forum and right people to ask a thing in this show durga is considered as mother of whole universe  and saraswati, lakshmi amd mahakali are originated from her left side same as tridevas fom her right side. She had taken various avtars now KATYAYANI avtar is shown in serial now tell me who was sati is that it was mahakali's avtar who is shiva's consort or of Durga who is divine mother of universe.  In shiva puran the Durga was considered to originated from parvati who is later birth of sati. In fact she only killed mahishasur and in kaushiki form she killed shumbh nishumbh. It is said that all shakti roop are originated from parvati and in NAVDURGA also we see shailputri, mahagauri, skandmata all are the stages of parvati's life. And also the body parts of sati are considered as shaktipeethaas and many sources tell that ADISHAKTI is wife of shiva, sister of vishnu and brahma is her devotee please tell me the difference between parvati and durga

mythology is bit confusing in India...but as far as i know, DURGA...KATYAYANI are synonymous..ie, they are roops or diff names of the same person just like MURUGAN and KARTIKEYA...n yes, SATI is NOT an AVTAAR of DURGA or katyayani...she was born due to a boon or vardaan and not to kill someone or to save the world from evil...she is just born as a human...ie a part of  DURGA is SATI but SATI is not DURGA...i hope u understand this...it confused me the first time i heard but i understood  wen i read it again...ok, now...MAHAKALI was pleased with PARVATI or GAURI'S tapasya to please shiva...so she gave parvati the boon that MAHAKALI would reside in her...so sati and parvati are not AVTAARS but NORMAL HUMANS born due to someone's tapasya and then given divinity as a boon of their tapasya...and now, DURGA, SKANDMATA, KAUSHIKI etc are roops or forms of PARVATI as MAHAKALI ie they were formed to kill demons or to protect people...and yes...
here, the durga is not same as the divine mother...just like RIVER sarasvati and GODDESS sarasvati are not same...so, dont confuse between the two...they are diff from each other but due to same names are often confused as one.

Sargesh,

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.
