(Hindu Deity)DAITYAS

The children of Sage Kashyapa and Diti. Daityas means 'born of Diti'.

Daityas are often called demons, which is a little bit harsh. They are more like a tribe of unsavoury Hindu demi-gods... with some seriously nasty habits.

Originally fronted by Hiranyakashipu and Hiranyaksha the Daityas were destroyed by Vishnu and Indra, and although the world was an altogther better place for it the now childless Diti was fuming.

On the bright side, with no offspring to cook for and tidy up after she had all the time in the world to focus on creating the most powerful supergod of all time, and she almost did it. Almost.

Also see Diti, Hiranyakashipu, Hiranyaksha, and Maruts.
