Shiva SMT
I am Nataraja, the destroyer of all. I shall ascertain if you are worthy to face Brahman. If you cannot defeat me, then your world does not deserve to exist.


"The Hindu creator and destroyer of the world. Along with Vishnu, Shiva is one of the most revered gods in Hindu faith. He purifies the world through destruction and reconstructs it. Though he uses his destructive force towards demons, he grants blessings to believers. There are various depictions of Shiva, but the common version has four arms, one face, and three eyes. His weapon is a trident of light, and his third eye is said to be able to set the world ablaze."

"One of the three great Brahmanic gods of Hinduism. Like Vishnu, Shiva has a great deal of dedicated worshippers even today. While wielding unparalleled destructive power, at the same time he is a god of medicine and rebirth. It is said that all things revolvearound the rythm of his dance."
