Biographies | Raakshas
Reading through the scriptures, I came across through some of the
important information about many things. The information about
Raakshas is summarized below with most Raakshas and Raakshas
women (Raakshas' wives. sisters or daughters etc) names and their
brief necessary details. Normally it is very difficult to remember
their names and their genealogy and relationship with other Raakshas.
That is why this list has been prepared - to bring all those names
here at one place and show their relationship with each other, Some
have their short description, some have their detailed description,
while some do not have at all. Many unpopular names have the name of
the source of their name also -
There are a few Raakshas who were Braahman, such as - Alambooshaa, Jataasur, Raavan, Kumbhkarn, Vibheeshan, Vritraasur etc.
Origin of Raakshas and Yaksh
As Brahmaa Jee said these words, two very powerful Raakshas appeared named Heti and Praheti. Praheti was of religious nature so he went to do Tapasyaa, and Heti was married to Kaal's sister Bhayaa. heti and Bhayaa had a son Vidyutkesh who married Sandhyaa's daughter Katankataa and had a son named Sukesh. Sukesh was taken care of Shiv and Paarvatee and they granted him boons and a Vimaan (airplane) and made him fearless.
Sukesh had three gracious sons - Maalee, Sumaalee and Maalyavaan - read further on Raakshas' Names by searching their names ---

Two lists have been prepared of such Raakshas, their killer's name, when and how he was killed, and the reference where that information is given. These two lists are arranged by Raakshas names and Killers' names
