How Gadevi joined the Tourney

Gadevi first appears when he is informed of Rajendra's alliance with Pars, and is angry by the fact his brother has not recognized his succession. When Jaswant reports to him about his failed mission and the loss of the Fortress of Guajarat, he nearly executed him but his Grand Vizier, Mahendra, convince him to spare Jaswant. He decides to use his War Elephant to win a decisive battle against his enemies. He sends a force of 20.000 soldiers to keep the Parsian Troop out of the Battlefield and meets Rajendra at the Fields of Chandigarh with 150.000 soldiers against the 50.000 of Rajendra, far outnumbering his brother. He seems to win the battle when he orders his war elephants to charge as his troops were beginning to be pushed back, but the arrival of the Parsian troops reverses the fate of battle; breaking the elephants's charge and nearly results in the capture of Gadevi himself, who is saved by Jaswant. Back at the Capital, however, he shows no sign of thank to Jaswant, and is informed of his father recovery. He tries to manipulate him into making Rajendra the villain, but his father refuses his statement and declare his succession will be decided by a duel before the Gods.

After hearing Daryun will be Rajendra's proxy, he chose a dangerous Criminal, Bahadur, as his own proxy against Mahendra's advice. Thinking he can't be defeated, he is surprise when Daryun suprisely kills Bahadur. He refuses the result and tried to make to overthrown his Father, but he fails when he kills Mahendra as the latter was protesting, pushing his troops to abandon him and be arrested for Treason in the Royal Tribune of the Arena of the Duel. Although Rajendra promises to his dying father Gadevi will be spared, he immediately organized a banquet for Gadevi ( the traditional sign for the execution of a member of A Royal Family). Gadevi begs Rajendra to spare his life, losing in honour in the process. As he saw Arslan entering the hall of the Banquet, he tries to stab him as he thinks he is responsible for his demise. However he is stab in the eye by Arslan's hawk and falls to the ground in pain and defenseless. The move proved to be his dowfall, as Rajendra orders him to be forthwith beheaded. His head is later placed on the Capital's wall.

Resurrected, Gadevi plans to steal the Sindhura throne from Rajendra when some women fighters led by Minori come to meet him in battle.
