(Hindu Deity)SHESHA

Also known as ANANTA, ANATA-SHESHA, SESANAGA, VIRUPAKSHA
Attributes : --
Festival days : --
Vahana (Vehicle) : erm... himself.. possibly

The son of Kasyapa and Kadru, brother of Manasa, and one of three Naga Kings.

Balancing all of the planets on your infinate heads while Vishnu takes a nap on your coils between cosmic comings and goings can't be easy, yet Shesha still manages to do all this and keep his underworld kingdom of Patala in check, which demands respect.

Said to represent time, Shesa is responsible for destroying the world at the end of each Kalpa, but while ages change he always stays the same. He is quite literally the infinate serpent.
