These are the Demons from Hindu belief. They were born from the union of the god Asyapa or Kasyapa and goddess Diti. The Daitya took part in the churning of the waters and with their formidable strength, tried to foil the plans of the gods. They were eventually banished to the caverns of the underworld and guarded there by Varuna. Their withering attempts to break free caused earthquakes above.
