- For the human who previously impersonated Kamadeva, see Sunjay.
Kamadeva was the Hindu god of love.
At some point, the Hindus started worshipping Kamadeva as the god of love.
Thousands of years prior to 1802, Kamadeva was immolated by Shiva. Around this time, a young Sunjay gathered Kamadeva's ashes within a small container, attached a necklace, and wore it wherever he would go.
At some point, the book Kama Sutra, which was presumably about love, was written and named after the god of love.
Kamadeva's ashes were used by Sunjay to create lust outbreaks, making people act on their impulse for love. When the Legends caught Sunjay in the act of using magic to create chaos in Bath 1802, he impersonated Kamadeva, until he confessed his feelings to Zari. After breaking Zari's love trance, she confiscated the ashes and presumably turned them in to the Time Bureau.
