(Hindu Deity)MARUTS

Also known as THE RUDRAS

Storm deities. The Maruts are as unpredictable as the winds they represent.

Diti was pregnant. In fact, she had been pregnant for a full century and still showed no signs of giving birth which had Indra stroking his chin... "Hmmm. She's up to something!"

Sure enough his suspicions were confirmed when a sneaky peak revealed a truly terrifying secret - Diti's dark magic had enabled her to conceive a child more powerful than him. Luckily it hadn't been born yet so he hurled a thunderbolt at the foetus which splintered into dozens of pieces and each bit was born as one of the less powerful but still rather nasty Maruts.

They were all violent and aggressive storm Gods with iron teeth. They were also armed to the teeth with thunderbolts and lightning and they weren't afraid to use them.

Some say Rudra was involved in their conception somewhere down the line, hence their other name - the Rudras - but no-one seems to know where. And if they do know they're not telling.
