The colorful deities and demons of India...

ARUṆA

Hindu Dawn God

Morning Sky Chariot God

A very bad case of shell shock. The egg he was hatched from got broken too early and he emerged only half-developed. Without feet, he could fly but not walk.

Handsome as he was in every other way, he just never got invited to dances or celebrations. Luckily his parents found him a job as taxi driver for Surya. He is now official Charioteer of the Sun and God of the Morning Sky.
