 Story of Dronacharya:
   Dronacharya was the  military tutor for the Kuru princes of Hastinapur. He did not become the guru and a very important character of the Mahabharat war by chance. 

   Drona and the prince of Panchala were good friends growing up. Later in life when Drona needed his friend's help, Drupada refused to accept him, and insulted him in front of his family and court. Drona wanted revenge against Drupada for this insult and un acceptance. Drona ends up learning the use of weapons and becomes very skilled with the help of Sage Parashuram. 

He goes on to Hastinapur , proves himself and gets the job as the royal guru. Arjuna quickly becomes his favorite and most skilled student. Drona gets his revenge against Drupada in due course.

When the Mahabharat war happens, he had no choice but to fight against his favorite student.
