Project Idea: Rakshasas

In addition to Ravana, there is a whole cast of rakshasa characters, and there are also some great rakshasa characters in the Mahabharata also.

Research Tip: Start with the Wikipedia article about rakshasas, and then explore the articles about individual Ramayana characters like Ravana's brothers and sister Shurpanakha, Kumbhakarna, and Vibhishana (and his daughter Trijata), plus his son Indrajit, or Hidimbi and Ghatotkacha from the Mahabharata. You will find comic books on Reserve in Bizzell like Kumbhakarna: The Sleeping Giant, Mahiravana: A Magician Outwitted, and Ghatotkacha: The Chivalrous Demon. For stories beyond the epics, check out the rakshasas in the Stories from India.
