Background

The story of Ganesh can be found in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana. Shiva asked Parvati to observe the punyaka vrata for a year to appease Vishnu in order to have a son. When a son was born to her, all the gods and goddesses assembled to rejoice on its birth. Lord Shani, the son of Surya (Sun-God), was also present but he refused to look at the infant. Perturbed at this behaviour, Parvati asked him the reason, and Shani replied that his looking at baby would harm the newborn. However, on Parvati's insistence when Shani eyed the baby, the child's head was severed instantly. All the gods started to bemoan, whereupon Vishnu hurried to the bank of river Pushpabhadra and brought back the head of a young elephant, and joined it to the baby's body, thus reviving it.

In recent times, Ganesh has returned to the human world and appears to have done so without the permission of the Hindu pantheon. He has been embraced by the Hindu people and was instrumental in the formation of the uber group The Assembly, which is possibly part of his plan to bring about a Paradise on Earth fit for the presence of his family.

Personality

Ganesh is a god, and as such, it is difficult to fathom his personality and objectives. He holds himself apart from his worshippers, and revels in their worship, but he is also willing to get his hands dirty on Assembly missions. He has shown himself to be a fierce warrior, especially in the subjugation of Pakistan and Kashmir.

Quote

“This world is not yet a Paradise, but I am a patient god.”

Powers

The god Ganesh is one of the most powerful beings on the planet, although his full powers are not available to him on the mortal plane. He is able to access a variety of powerful magic but can only do this through the portals of holy temples and may only access one or two powers at a time. Even without the magic Ganesh is capable of destroying armies with his fists.

Appearance

The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesh has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesh is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja.

As a member of The Assembly, Ganesh wears a black bodysuit with a golden crown and wristguards..
