(Hindu Demon)JATASURA

A devious Rakshasa. Jatasura pretended to be a Brahman to trick his way into the Pandavas confidence and wreak havoc.

Jatasura cooked up a devious scheme and assumed the form of a giant monster to put his cunning plan into effect, and as Bhima was away but could arrive back at anytime he needed crackerjack timing. Grabbing all of the Pandavas weapons and their mutual wife Draupadi with the intention of doing unspeakable things to her he also grabbed Yudhishthira, Sahadeva and Nakula as hostages.
He might have pulled it off too if he wasn't so stupid.

One of his captives let fly with a torrent of big words and moral issues and as the bamboozled Jatasura dropped his guard and tried to work out what the hell Yudhishthira had just said to him, Bhima waded in and knocked him out cold with a punch to the neck. This was quickly followed by a body slam of epic proportions and finally Bhima's head removal trick. You don't mess with a Pandava.

There's just one thing that remains a mystery. Where was Arjuna, the fifth Pandava brother, while all of this was going down?
