Devil’s Revenge Daily episode. 31-Vritra

Latest Daily Demon video for Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance has arrived, courtesy of Atlus. The focus of Volume 31 of the series is Vritra.

A demon of the Dragon race, Vritra has appeared quite a bit in the Megami Tensei series in the past and is especially notable for undergoing several design changes over the years: based on the asura of Hindu mythology , both an asura and a dragon, he has appeared as both in the series. In Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, he took on a more human-like appearance. Megami Tensei Wiki has more insight into his origin:

Vritra the Enveloper is both an Asura and a dragon. He is the personification of drought and the main enemy of Indra. Vritra is one of the asuras, perhaps the most powerful of them all. His name means “Envelope Man”. He is a dragon or a snake said to be so huge that he curls around the mountains and his head touches the sky. Once upon a time, he stole and kept all the water in the world for himself, but he was eventually defeated by Indra. Later versions of the myth have him as a loving worshiper of Vishnu who eventually turned evil and abandoned his duties as a good man to become a horribly evil and is the leader of the demonic asuras and fights the daevas, while in other versions he is a creation of Tvastar made to avenge his son who was murdered by Indra.
