A loyal demon.We live and learn. He was the son of arch-demon HIRANYAKASHIPU, but was loyal to VISHNU.
His evil father tortured him and did his best to kill him, but VISHNU came to the rescue and put paid to the evil dad once and for all .
As a reward for his loyalty under parental pressure, PRAHLADA was given a kingdom where he lived happily ever after apart from a few nightmares.
