The Injasura are 12 beasts of unimaginable power. According to legend, they seal a gate that leads to the realm of the Daityas. In order to forbid mortals from entering this place, and the Daityas from entering our world, the Gods used the lifeforces of the Injasura to bar the gate. It is said that each of them draws strength from one of 12 sacred stars. Kreshkatara, He Who Lights the Way, is the 3rd Injasura. He draws his strength from the star Hexa Miraba. Like Shukunaru, Kreshkatara tests those whom the Gods have chosen. Unlike Shukunaru, Kreshkatara's duty is to return those heros who have fallen, because of folly, inaction, or suffering, back upon the Path of Righteousness. This, he does with gusto.
