He was one of the grandfathers of creation, a son of Brahma, the god of ritual skills and a king. Diti was one of the thirteen wives of Kashyapa, another prajapati and a great sage. Her two most famous sons were Hiraṇyākṣa who was slain by Vishnu's Varaha avatara and Hiraṇyakaśipu who was slain by Vishnu's Narasimha (man-lion) avatara. She also had a daughter named Holika who was killed by her own powers. Diti is usually mean and cruel to Kashyapa and Aditi, her own real sister. She is always obsessed with trying to raise the power of demons to it's peak. She also hates Aditi's sons who are gods.
