Karna, God's Descendant

LoreEdit

None understood the one who descended from the skies in a billowing flame. The golden god sought to hide away the offspring of his sordid affair in the land of the asura, and the bloodletting could not have been quicker. His illegitimate son Karna killed and consumed and consumed and killed, only pausing briefly before returning to the fray. In truth, he had little other choice.

Name originEdit

Karna is an Indian masculine name, derived from Sanskrit कर्ण (karna) meaning "ear". Karna, originally known as Vasusena, is one of the central characters in the Hindu epic Mahābhārata, from ancient India. He is the son of the Hindu sun god Surya and Kunti, who gave birth to him through her ear, before her marriage with king Pandu, earthly father of the Pandavas and ruler of Hastinapur. Afraid of being an unwed mother, Kunti placed the baby in a basket and set him afloat on a river; the child was found by Adhiratha, he and his wife Radha raised the boy as their own son. He was a great warrior who joined the Duryodhana, the eldest of Kauravas, to fight against his half-brothers the Pandavas, eventually becoming the king of Anga (present day Bhagalpur and Munger).
