(Hindu Demon)HIDIMBI

Also known as HIDIMBAA

The girly part of a viscous and cannibalistic forest Rakshasa brother sister combo who hated the Pandavas.

When they discovered that Bhima and co had been exiled to the very same forest they thought their luck was in...

'They're so big and meaty they could feed us for a full month'
thought Hidimbasura, and came up with a hair brained scheme to lead the beefy brothers straight into his cooking pot.

As an accomplished shapeshifter Hidimbi took the form of a tasty maiden and went to the Pandava's camp to invite them to dinner. You can imagine her brothers dismay when she returned empty handed and announced that she had fallen in love. Apparently the feeling was mutual and the hunky Bhima was on his way to Rakshasa central to sort Hidimbasura out.

Bhima was a dab hand at disposing of Rakshasas and had an R.I.P list as big as his biceps, so it didn't take him long to dispose of Hidimbi's brother. The love birds lived happily together for a year or so and despite only spending the daylight hours together they still managed to have a son called Ghatotkacha.
