With Garuda, Jatayu and Vasuki on track we thought we might as well start working on the other characters that we have in mind. Initially we had Bali, Jambavan and Narasimha but eventually we realised that Narasimha is no longer a little known hero as almost everyone here knows about him. But again he had such amazing features…..who could have ever thought of changing into a half lion and half human and hanging around with claws so lethal, just to get rid of one guy….it became a tough decision to take for us to not work on this character. So we went deep into Hindu mythology and came across characters that were twice as great as Narasimha but least popular amongst all. Now we have this new character called Sharabha.
Sharabha is a part lion and a part bird….and he is a beast. He is not any ordinary beast but one that has eight legs. He can supposedly clear a valley in one jump which definitely beats the other cool mythological creatures. He is also considered the incarnation of the Mahadev (Shiva) which could subdue Narasimha, the fierce manifestations of lord Vishnu.
In Ramayana, Bali was the half ape ruler of Kishkindha, the kingdom of the apes. He was invulnerable to any enemy because he had received a blessing where whoever came before him lost half of their strength to him. He was the kind of guy who would toss the mountain peaks around and catch them himself…purely for fun.
Jambavan was the half sloth bear king of the bear kingdom. His strength was unmatched, once battling the god Krishna for 28 days straight he realized he was fighting god and ended the battle on friendly terms. He was also a brilliant military strategist, leading an army of monkeys to victory over Ravana, the demon king, in the most epic battle in the book of Ramayana.
