Padātin (पदातिन्) refers to “foot-soldiers” (i.e., “those who fight on foot”), according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.4.10 (“Boasting of Tāraka”).—Accordingly, as Tāraka-Asura fought with Kārttikeya: “[...] Both appeared to possess plenty of practice. Both had the desire to gain the upper hand. Both fought on foot (padātin), had wonderful forms and features and were equally courageous. With massive heaps of fatal missiles they hit each other. They had various ways of attack. They roared. They exhibited their all exploits. The onlookers, the gods, the Gandharvas and the Kinnaras were much surprised. They did not speak anything there. [...]”.
