Treasures of Indra

Eye of Indra.
The Treasures of Indra is the name for a set of three artefacts, individually known as the Eye of Indra, the Path of Indra and the Wrath of Indra. All three Treasures appear in the 2009 Uncharted: Eye of Indra motion comic, as crimelord Daniel Pinkerton hires treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake to find the elusive Eye of Indra artefact for him.

[edit] Treasures

The Treasures of Indra are presumably named after the Hindu deity Indra.

[edit] Eye of Indra

The Eye of Indra is an amulet with a red diamond embedded in it, estimated by treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake to be worth millions of dollars. The amulet proves to be the most elusive Treasure of Indra, as crimelord Daniel Pinkerton spends years searching for it to no avail.[1]

Path of Indra.

[edit] Path of Indra

The Path of Indra is a statue that depicts the mythical elephant Airavata, known in Thai as Erawan. The Eye of Indra is hidden within the Path of Indra, and as Daniel Pinkerton breaks it open with little regard for the statue, it could be presumed that it is worth significantly less than the Eye of Indra.[1]

Wrath of Indra.

[edit] Wrath of Indra

The Wrath of Indra is a gold sword, and one of the two Treasures of Indra that Daniel Pinkerton has collected in search for the Treasures.[1]

[edit] Background

At an unknown point in time, a King shipped the three Treasures of Indra to his daughter, living in Indonesia. Along with the Treasures, the King sent his daughter three letters, each one describing one of the Treasures. The Eye of Indra was thought not be among the shipment because it did not appear in the ship's manifest. However, when the three letters are combined, they reveal a hidden message that states that the Eye of Indra is hidden within the Path of Indra.[1]

Crimelord Daniel Pinkerton later collected the Path of Indra and the Wrath of Indra, but was unable to collect the Eye of Indra, spending years searching for it to no avail.[1]

[edit] Uncharted: Eye of Indra

In June 2006,[2] crimelord Daniel Pinkerton hires treasure-hunter Nathan "Nate" Drake to find the Eye of Indra amulet. The amulet has eluded Pinkerton for some time, although has been able to collect the remaining Treasures of Indra: the Path of Indra and the Wrath of Indra.[1]

Unbeknownst to Pinkerton, the Eye of Indra is hidden inside the Path of Indra, and after Nate makes this discovery, he conspires with local bar owner Rika Raja and her brother Eddy to steal the amulet from Pinkerton's safe. However, Nate and the Rajas' heist goes wrong, and Pinkerton is able to capture the trio.[1]

After a brief interrogation, Nate reveals the location of the Eye of Indra and Pinkerton destroys the Path of Indra in order to retrieve the amulet. However, Rika is able to break free from her constraints and kills Pinkerton using Eddy's Golden Gun. Rika later betrays Nate and Eddy, choosing to take the amulet for herself.[1]
