Nandi is the General of Yamadutas. He along with Yama and Shani were the first warriors to create the colony around naraka. He belongs to Daitya clan, a class of Danavas who's purpose is to protect the bloodline of Danavas.
Friendship with Yama & shaniEdit
Nandi was one of the fugitives, who were on the run with Bana, Danava prince and his band of people.
They survived in the forests for a long time by attacking on traders and mingling with forest people, after the 10th war. such repeated encounters leaves Nandi, a devout of Bana, disillusioned.
In an encounter with Yama and Shani, who were taking slaves gathered from Naraka to sell them off to kubera, Nandi watches as Yama and Shani are fatally injured by the danava mercenaries. He decides to help them and so runs away with their injured bodies.
That is the beginning of a lifelong friendship of Nandi, Shani and Yama.

Nandi, also known as Nandi the bull is known for his massive frame and physical strength. It is claimed that he is so powerful, that only the Vanara king Suvarna could match him in a dual.
He was fierce and aggressive as a youth, but as the years passed he develops his own sense of humor, which is self defeating.

He wears skulls and bones as jewellery. He is also an accomplished performer. He likes teaching the kids to sing, dance and act whenever he gets time.
Nandi is very emotional, and Shani keeps teasing him about that.

With the help of Shani and Yama, he can achieve paishachi form, which he has only used just twice. The second time to defeat the paishachi army of Mahisha.
