General definition (in Hinduism)Source: Apam Napat: Indian Mythology
Yuyutsu, also called Vikarna, was a son of King Dhritharashtra, born to a Vaishya wife of the King. Thus, he is the half brother of the Kauravas. He was famed for his sense of justice. He was one of the few who strenuously objected to the dishonoring of Draupadi in the assembly hall by the Kauravas. (See 'Draupadi Dishonored').
He was disgusted by the injustice done by his brothers, the Kauravas to the sons of Pandu and hence he joined the Pandava side in the great Kurkshetra war. He was the only son of Dhritharashtra to survive that bloody war.Source: WikiPedia: Hinduism
Yuyutsu (युयुत्सू): A noble son of Dhritarashtra who bent his head in shame and sorrow when Yudhishthira lost Draupadi. He also disapproved of the unfair way in which Abhimanyu was killed.
