PANDU

Also known as THE PALE ONE

The son of Ambalika by Vyasa but Vichitravirya raised him as his own. Not actually a 'real' king he just ruled the Kingdom of Hastinapur for his blind brother and took control of Dhritarashtra's armies. Archery was his thing.

He was married to Madri and Kunti, but as he interupted a Rishi having sex in the forest he was cursed to die if he ever had lustful feelings for either of them.

This was a bit of a problem as both of his wives were desperate for kids. Kunti used three of the boons given to her by Sage Durvasa to gain three sons .. Yudhistira by Yama, Bhima by Vayu and Arjuna by Indra. She gave her two remaining boons to Mandri who had Nakula and Sahadeva by the Ashvin twins.

Strictly speaking they weren't the children of Pandu but he raised them as his own and they became known as Pandus Pandavas, which is quite catchy.
