KAMSA

Indian Demon

Also known as KANSA

Nasty tyrannical Demon King and KRISHNA's uncle.

He was quite happy ruling ruthlessly, until one day he received some bad news from Heaven. A mysterious voice informed him that his half-sister DEVAKI would shortly give birth to a demon-destroying hero and now might be a good time to reconsider his life insurance policy.

KAMSA was furious and hit on the amazingly original plan of killing all his nephews. But baby KRISHNA escaped and you can guess the rest.
