Vahana (Vehicle) : n/a

The eldest of Dhritarashtra and Gandhari's one hundred offspring, the Kaurava brothers, and chief antagonist of the Pandavas.

He was born from one of a hundred Brahman pots filled with what can only be described as grey lifeless goo which fell from Gandhari's womb after beating her stomach in frustration at an exceptionally long pregnancy. Vyasa then topped the pots off with ghee and buried them for a full year.

Duryodhana's body was made from thunder so you can imagine how tough he was. And he wasn't afraid to throw his weight around, becoming more and more frustrated everytime Bhima and the Pandava's made him look like a complete idiot.

He had lost his best warriors and generals, most of them family, and almost lost his mind, then he was summoned by his mother for a makeover of invincibility. It's always a bit uncomfortable when your mum sees you naked so the bashful Duryodhana covered his twig and berries, accidently protecting them from the protective spell.

This created a weak spot that Bhima fully exploited with a deliberate low blow at the battle of Kurukshetra, but that's what you get for trying to poison a Pandava!
