|— Durga to Asura|
Appearance[edit | edit source]
Durga appears as a beautiful woman with long dark purple hair and a slender figure. She wears her hair in a braided style in the back of her head with a golden headdress and long cream dress with a jewel-embroidered purple tunic. She wears a tan sash on top of a green blouse underneath the tunic and cream-colored shoes. She also wears a gold ring on one of her hands.
Personality[edit | edit source]
She was portrayed as a kind and gentle woman who greatly cherished her family. She cared dearly for her husband, Asura, and saw only the best in him despite his wrathful and bruttish tendencies. She agreed to raise Mithra, while Asura would make the world safer for her, showing a great degree of consideration for his tendencies and a pragmatic view of how helpful he can be. She also believed her husband was at his best when he was fighting for what is right. Durga cared a great degree about Mithra as well and requested that Asura rescue her at the time of her death. Like any adherent mother, Durga could also be stern as she had reprimanded Asura for eating Mithra's vegetables in the past and warned that he treated her too lightly.
History[edit | edit source]
Durga married Asura at some point on her life, and the two had a daughter whom they named Mithra. She would look after their daughter at their home while her husband Asura would protect them and make the world a safer place for Mithra. By the time Mithra was a teenager, Durga and the rest of her family would pass time together at home.
After Gohma Vlitra's temporary defeat by the hands of her husband Asura, Gaea's people enjoyed a celebration of peace and prosperity. As Asura returned to his home, Durga greeted him along with their daughter, Mithra. As Asura hugs Mithra and Durga, one of the servants called upon Asura to visit Emperor Strada, as Mithra stated maybe he will give Asura a medal for defeating Vlitra. As Asura arrives, he finds the Emperor shaking. As Asura discovered the Emperor's corpse, he was mistakenly branded a traitor by the soldiers that stood before him. Meanwhile, Sergei, as he was already requested by Deus, had murdered Durga and kidnapped Mithra. As Asura raced back to his home, he found Durga lying on the ground, with a large blood stain in her stomach. As Asura embraced his wife, Durga told her husband to save Mithra, prompting Asura to reply: "Save your strength." As Durga stroked her husband's cheek and looked into his eyes one last time, she said her last words of wishing safety for Asura, and peacefully passed away with a smile on her face. As Asura saw his wife's own death, he screamed out in terror, rage and mourning, only with the last hope to rescue their daughter.
She is later reincarnated into the modern day, along with the rest of her family.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In Hinduism, Durga is the Goddess of Power who had the Victory of Good over Evil.
- In a Hindu folktale, the Asura were united with the demigods through marriage between an Asura and a demigod. This draws parallels between Asura and Durga's marriage, as Asura was not openly accepted due to his naturally violent tendencies.
- In Hinduism, Durga was also the warrior aspect of the goddess, Parvati/Uma/Devi, who happened to be the beloved wife of the Hindu God of Destruction, Lord Shiva.
- The Fact that Durga has a family but is also a Deity is very similar to Amaterasu from the ''Okami'' series, it is even hinted throughout this plot that the world of ''Okami" and ''Asura's Wrath'' are set in the same realm.
