Abhimanyu

Abhimanyu is a character of the ancient Hindu epic Mahabharata. He was the son of the third Pandava prince Arjuna and Yadava princess Subhadra. He is believed to be an avatar of Varchas, son of Chandra. Ever since he was young, Abhimanyu was raised by his maternal relatives as his father was sent into exile for 13 years. During his adolescence, his father returned from exile and Abhimanyu married Uttarā, the princess of Matsya. During the Kurukshetra War, Abhimanyu fought at his father's side. On the thirteenth day of the war, the young warrior was slain inside the Chakravyuha. His son, Parikshit, was the one who saved the lineage from extinction and went onto become a legendary king.
