Karna also known as Surya Putra (Son of Surya) was the most powerful character in the Hindu epic Mahabharata. He was born with a golden armor on his chest and golden ear rings which are indestructible which made him the most powerful warrior of all time. The motorcycle has similar style of body armor.
He is a tragic hero in the Mahabharata, in a manner similar to Aristotle’s literary category of “flawed good man”. He meets his biological mother late in the epic then discovers that he is the older half-brother of those he is fighting against. Karna is a symbol of someone who is rejected by those who should love him but do not given the circumstances, yet becomes a man of exceptional abilities willing to give his love and life as a loyal friend.
