Weird thought: Were you aware that there's also an old Hindu death-god named Yama? (it's the name that reminded him to me)

From the few stories I've read about him, he seems a bit less impartial and serious in his job than Anubis (but then again *everyone* would seem so compared to Anubis). He even did some personal favours at times...

Now that I think of it, there may even exist present-day believers of Yama since I've heard that Hinduism throws almost nothing away - I suppose that could make Yama's inclusion in the Gargoyles series a bit more difficult than the inclusion of a purely mythological character...

Never heard of that. It's interesting though.

I think the word "Yama" means "mountain" in Japanese. Can anyone confirm?
