(Hindu Deity)VARUNA

Attributes : Coming soon ...
Festival days : Coming soon too ...
Vahana (Vehicle) : Makara (sea monster)

Chief of the solar deities known as the Adityas.

Varuna was God of the sky and supreme law and order. He didn't care for liars or falsehood in general, inflicting offenders with diseases such as dropsy. And speaking of dropsy, he dropped a right clanger when he wasn't paying attention and Vrtra did a runner with all of the waters of the universe. Indra wasn't impressed and had to smash down his ninety nine fortresses and defeat him to bring them back.

Varuna was demoted to the keeper of drowned souls and God of the celestial waters which fall as rain then managed to upset Rama who had just completed a three day penance and was blatantly ignored. Enraged by Varuna's arrogance Rama started to hurl thunderbolts willy-nilly and Varuna eventually sauntered up to the surface on Makara just in time to prevent him unleashing the legendary Brahmastra.
