The Son of Brahma. Hindu God of pure wealth not to be confused with Laxmi the Goddess of fortune - which is something completely different.

Being god of wealth wasn't handed to him on a plate, he had to do austerities for a thousand years, then his younger brother Ravana caused no end of trouble and strife by booting him out of his home of Lanka after a mere two years of penance. What a cheek.

Luckily Kuvera had another kingdom hidden in the Himalayas called Alkapuri, where he stockpiled all of the Earths wealth.

Kuvera sometimes flits over to Buddhism disguised as Tamon-ten, one of the four heavenly Kings known as Shi-Tenno, where he appears to be laying claim to the guardian of the North job.
In Japan this vacancy has already been more than filled by the tough as nuts Bishamon, but sshhhh... don't tell him.
