Hindu - A giant warrior prince, hero of the Mahabharata. Son of Vayu and Kunti. One of the 5 Pandava brothers. Husband of Hidimbaa. Father of Damayanti. Father of Ghatotkacha by Hidimbaa. Father of Sarvaga by Balandhara. On a journey to find the magic lotus, which restores health and vigour, he met Hanuman and from him learned the history of the universe. He killed the yakshas which guarded the lotus and drank the healing waters of the lake. In one account he killed Purochana by setting fire to his house, because he had learned that Purochana planned to burn down the Pandava's palace. He Vaka and many others. Two men, Jayadratha and Kitchaka, tried to rape Draupadi, and Bhima gave them both a beating, making the former work as a slave of the Pandavas. Bhima later saved Draupadi from death at the stake. In the Mahabharata he was poisoned and thrown into the river by bis cousin, Duryodhana, one of the Kaurava brothers, but the water snakes revived him and gave him tremendous physical strength, which he used to great effect in the battle with the Kauravas. One of those he killed was Duhsasana and he drank the dead man's blood. In the final episode Duryodhana, the sole surviving Kaurava, fought Bhima in single combat and was defeated. During the fight Bhima used an unfair blow that broke his opponent's thigh. Thereafter, he was called Jihma-yodhin, the unfair fighter. Bhima, and all the Pandavas except Yudhishthira, died on the journey to Mount Meru.
