INDRAJIT

Hindu War God

Also known as Meghanada

Warrior Prince and Heaven-stormer

The son of Ravana, he is one formidable soldier. He famously nobbled Indra and was able to name his terms, which mostly involved asking for military goodies.

After bargaining with Brahma, he set Indra free in exchange for several top secret weapons of mass cosmic obliteration. Plus Brahma gave him a magic chariot from which he can never be killed. Surely this sort of thing is just cheating?

He was finally beheaded after an intensive three-day battle, but that sort of thing only makes the gods stronger we find, so maybe he’ll pop up again one day. If so, run away.
