One of the Hindi trimurti of Gods. Un-mistakingly blue, Vishnu is the maintainer - the preserver of the world.

Strangely enough he also created the creator God Brahma from his belly button which was on the end of a long lotus stalk at the time, though nobody seems to know what it was doing there.

Rumours abound that he challenged the drunk on human blood Kali to a cosmic hoe-down when she got a little over exited after defeating the demon Raktavira. Apparently this was the only way to prevent the destruction of the whole world, and thankfully he won hands down.

Vishnu was like the bouncer on the door of the universe. If the Gods had been tricked by the Asuras who were in the ascendancy, which lets be honest was often, Vishnu would do what he always did... step in and pull their fat from the fire. Back at his crib, it seems he didn't have total confidence in the creator God either as he would snooze on coils of Shesha, slowly transforming into an Avatar ready to solve the problems that he just knew were going to come as part Brahma's brand new world package.

During the churning of the cosmic ocean Vishnu put in a quadruple shift as Lord Ajita pulling on the side of the Gods, Kurma who supported the great Mandara mountain which was in danger of sinking, and Lord Vishnu himself sat atop the mountain infusing the Gods and Vasuki with energy. He was also Mohini the sexy Goddess who retrieved Amrita from the thieving Asuras. This must be a record.
