Rudra, as mentioned in the Rig Vedas is the most ancient form of Lord Shiva. Rudra is said to have manifested from the rage of Lord Brahma to protect the deities and fight the demons. He is a hunter by profession and in Sanskrit language this name signifies wild. He has a dreadful manifestation and therefore his devotees fear his wrath. Much later, Rudra has been descriptively evolved and the Upanishads refer him as Shiva, the most benevolent of all. Rudra is personified as a short tempered one who is quick to release his weapons against those who infuriate him. He provides good luck and heals devotees in times of need. In ancient literature, Rudra is said to exude youthful vibrancy, is malevolent and scary. His complexion is tawny (yellowish brown), radiant and glowing like the sun. He is equipped with a powerful bow from which a steady flow of arrows are emitted to destroy the enemy.
There are 11 forms of Rudra who have 11 Rudranis as their consorts.
