Vidhura, half brother of Drutharashtra & Pandu is famous for being a true devotee of Lord Krishna. He was known for speaking truth.
He served his brothers as a minister.

Rukmani - Means "adorned with gold" in Sanskrit. In Hindu legend this is the name of a princess who became the wife of Krishna. Rukmini is also considered to be an avatar of Lakshmi, the goddess of fortune.
Youngest son of Shantanu and Satyavati. After the death of his brother Chitrangada, he though a child was still crowned as king of Hastinapura. Bhishma ruled the kingdom on hid behalf. After some years, when king of kasi was holding svyamvara for his three daughters Amba, Ambika and Ambalika, bhishma attended and won the svyamvara. ('cause vichitravirya stand too young to be chosen in that svyamvara). As Amba was in love with another prince, Ambika and Ambalika married him.
Uttara - the princess, married Arjuna's son Abhimanyu. She was widowed at a very young age when Abhimanyu was killed in the Kurukshetra war. Her son, Parik****a, was the sole surviving dynast of the Kuru clan and eventually became king of Hastinapura.It is also believed that Uttara had learnt dance from Arjuna as a princess during the 14th year of exile of the Pandavas when Arjuna lived a life of a eunuch and practiced his art of dance learnt from the apsaras in heavens.It is during this phase that Arjuna admired Uttara's qualities and later proposed her marriage to his son Abhimanyu.
He was the second of the Pandavas. He is so strong that his strength is equal to that of 10000 elephants.
Bhima's devotion to Krishna is unblemished.
He got a son Ghatotkacha by marrying Hidumbi.
Let me give the details about Shakuni Mama who played a very important role in Mahabharata.
Shakuni was born to King Subala ofGhandhara. His sister Gandhari was married to king Dhritarashtra. As per legend, on the advice of astrologers, to avert a calamity it was said that Gandhari was married to a goat before getting married to Dhritarashtra. And the goat had been sacrificed promptly thereafter. Technically, this made Gandhari a widow and Dhritarashtra her second husband. Many years later when her husband Dhritarashtra learns about this truth, shocked and enraged, Dhritrashtra puts Gandhari’s entire family,including king Subala in prison. In prison, they were served just one fistful of rice every day. Realizing that this was an elaborate plan to starve them to death, Gandhari’s father declared that none but his youngest son would eat the sparse food being served, so that at least one amongst them would survive to avenge the death of the rest. The youngest son of king Subala was Shakuni. He survived and swore not to rest until all of Kuru kingdom is destroyed . He used the bones of his father to make the dice with which he was able to defeat the Pandavas in the gambling match, and thus which eventually led to the war at Kurukshetra and also to the destruction of entire Kuru clan.
:idea Why friends such a long silence in this game. Let me continue. :thumbsup
Parik**** is the son of Abhimanyu and Uttara, and the grandson of Arjuna. He was the successor of Yudhisthira to the throne of Hastinapura.
Uttara is carrying their son in her womb when Abhimanyu is mercilessly and unfairly slain by the Kauravas. Later, Ashwathama attempts to kill the unborn child and his mother by directing the brahmastra towards her tent off the battlefields. She is saved by Lord Krishna, who was also the maternal uncle of Abhimanyu (Arjuna's wife Subhadra was the sister of Lord Krishna and mother of Abhimanyu.)
