Vahana (Vehicle) : --

The Original Vedic Earth Goddess.

Prithvi was maried to Dyaus Pita, father sky, who fertilized her with his rain. Up popped Agni and Indra, then the latter showed his family loyalty by killing his dad and marrying his mum.

As Prithi-Devi she married Varaha - Vishnu's third avatar in the form of a wild boar, presumably to say thankyou for saving her from the cosmic ocean where she had been dragged by Hiranyaksha.

She was insulted in the form of Sita for canoodling with Rama, Vishnu's seventh incarnation just before Shurpanakha lost her nose to Lakshmana, and as Rukmini she married Krishna - yet another avatar of Vishnu.
