    I disagree, Ravana was written under the diaspora section of Clanbook Ravnos revised by Deird're Brooks were Ramessu, Chandragupta, The Black Mother (Marizhavasti Kali) and Rakshasha (Hazimel according to BJD if you ignore V20 canon agnosticism). All of them are 4th generation in that section.

      I see "Yama King" as an ecological niche more than a splat.

      Any supernatural with sufficient power and the opportunity to feed on the suffering of souls can become one. If he or she is tough enough to claim turf in the Hells. Kindred may have an advantage because being parasitic on suffering is natural to them. But the relevant ecosystem only exists in the east, so the opportunity is truly rare. Saulots teachers may have seen how suited powerful kindred was to this role. Saulot may have too.
