DANTAVAKRA

The final demonic incarnation of Jaya before he can return to his cushy job as doorman for Vishnu.

Dantavakra was so incenced after the death of his good pal Salva at the battle of Kuruksetra that he rushed onto the battefield minus his charriot and armour and only a simple club to defend himself. This is never a good idea.

However, in this case it was doubly insane as the reason for his wrath was none other than Krishna who smacked him so hard that his heart split clean in half.

Dantavakra was the brother-in-law of Shishupala who was actually Jaya - his real brother who suffered the same reincarnation fate for upsetting a troupe of mobile sages.

Rather suprisingly he was also Krishna's cousin. The lack of family loyalty in Hinduism disturbs me!
