Origin: Hindu mythology
Hanuman is considered one of the most important characters in the Ramayana. Hanuman is a Vanara-brave, loyal and adventurous ape-like humanoids.
One story says that he led a troop of Vanaras on a search for Sita. When they reach the ocean, Hanuman makes an extraordinary leap across to the island of Lanka, where Sita is being held hostage by the demon, Ravana. Hanuman finds Sita and delivers a ring sent by Rama. Though his tail is set on fire by the demon, Hanuman escapes and later fights in battle to rescue Sita.
