    Revenants should definitely be a priority in regard to being included in V5, especially considering that the V20 "Ghouls and Revenants" contains additional developments and information in regard to the Revanant Families. I always thought that there should have been more written about Revenants in V:tM.

      First thing to do with the Revenants: change their mindbogglingly stupid name.

        I can see it getting changed, but I don't think it is mindbogglingly stupid. It does put across how much apart from mundane humans Revenants are. Do you have any idea(s) for another name for them ?

            I think that it would have to be a more distinct name. Even if one puts aside the particular characteristics that set Revenants apart from Ghouls, then I think the fact that Revenants are, to an extent, set up separately / independently from Vampires justifies them having a name that is more specific.

              The complaint isn’t that they don’t merit a name, but that the name given to them means something entirely different. You wouldn’t call them “mummies,” for example.

                  This name has too much association with artificial creation ; and I think that how it sounds is not fitting.
                  Strigas ( singular Striga ) or Strigoi ( could be Strigois so that the singular and plural is not the same ) was mentioned before on these forums. I don't think the name is used in World of Darkness. I think that it fits and sounds good enough, and the Romania / Eastern Europe connotation is appropriate in regard to many Revenant Families ( including the most prominent ones associated with Sabbat Vampires ) . Though I think that Revenants as a name is much better.
