(Hindu Demon)RAHU

Also known as ABHRA PISACHA, DEMON OF THE SKY

Prince of the Daitya's : a race of gigantic demons who got their kicks from fisty-cuffs with the Gods. This was a game Rahu excelled at as he had four hands!

Rahu put on his bestest disguise and snook among the Gods as they were dishing up the elixir of immortality but he was hounded out by the sun and moon Gods. He had already taken a little sip but didn't even have time to swallow it before Mohini took his head clean off with her divine discus. Still, at least his head became immortal.

He never forgave the sun and the moon and constantly chases them across the sky. Every now and again he will catch the sun and gobble it up, but with no body joined onto his neck stump eclipses don't last long.
