Ancient creator God. Hindu's over protective father.

Daksha was one of the Vedic Prajipati's, the old school original creator Gods (born from Brahma's thumb?) and after his marriage to Prasuti had a seemingly inexhaustible supply of daughters.

 

The famous ones included Diti, Aditi and Danu, and of the twenty seven others that married Soma Rohini was clearly his favourite which made daddy Daksha furious.

 

A curse was soon winging its way to the inspirational God of joy and drunken chit-chat and he began to shrivel and die, but a communal flicker of eyelids from the apples of his eye saw the curse reduced to a part time death - said to represent the waxing and waning moon.

Daksha wasn't too fond of Shiva and thought Dakshayani - another one off the old daughter production line - was far too good for a graveyard loiterer, even if he was one of Hindu's big three, and was particlarly concerned by his ghoulish cohort of imps and devils. It all got a bit messy.

See Dakshayani for all the gory details.
