Often likened to the great Greek Heroes, Rostam quickly turns from a mammoth baby to a warrior and hero. To prove himself as the child of prophecy, he adventures out to save a king-in-distress and overcome his seven labours. Special shoutout to his saviour, steed, and sidekick: Rakhsh! For being the true hero during Rostam's power naps.
