Hindu - A devout king. Agni or, some say, Dharma, took the form of a dove and asked Shivi for shelter from a pursuing hawk - actually Indra. Rather than betray the dove when the raptor demanded his natural prey, the king cut off his own leg and offered it to the the hawk. At that point, both gods returned to their proper form and restored Shivi's leg. Occasionally referred to as Shivi.
