Kartikeya
Kartikeya, the second son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is also known as Subramaniam, Skanda, Guha, Shadannana or Sanmukha because he has six faces. He represents a person of perfection.Kartikeya He is the war God. He was created to lead the heavenly hosts and destroy the demons. He is the most masculine and fierce of all the Gods. He is also fire, Agni and is very fiery in nature. While Ganesh removes all obstacles, Skanda bestows all spiritual powers, particularly the power of knowledge.

Shiva had six faces with a central eye in each. Out of these eyes sprang sparks which fell into a lake where they became infants. Shiva`s wife grabbed the six infants and squeezed them into one and thus Kartikeya was born.

In one hand he carries a spear called sakti which symbolizes the destruction of negative tendencies in humans. With his other hand he always blesses his devotees. The Lord`s vehicle is a peacock, which is capable of destroying harmful serpents symbolizing harmful ego and bad desires of people.
