Pancawala

Raden Pancawala is the son of Prabu Yudistira and Dewi Drupadi. He is often referred to as the adopted son of Wrekudara because his face so resemble his uncle’s.

During the Baratayuda Prince Aswatama kills Raden Pancawala while the latter is asleep. His mother, Dewi Drupadi, is beside herself with grief because her son’s death, though occuring in wartime, happens off the battlefield.

Raden Pancawala has jaitan eyes, a pointed nose and a calm face. His hair hangs free in the gimbal style with the garuda ornament in back. He wears the waderan ear ornaments, the bulan sabit chest ornament and the katongan dress.
