In Japanese the word Yami literally translates to darkness, and is also the name of the creature (whether specifically called a god or not is unknown to me) who created ALL demons. The idea of having the Demon Lord can counteract both having only gods in smite and Zhong Kui's existence as an exorcist. Even though i don't think the Japanese ever called him a god, to be creator of such a vast array of varying creatures (whether monsters or not), deserves some kind of recognition. Plus, i would like to see how smite interprets Yami, as opposed to the game Okami. Anyone who agrees or is opposed to the idea, feel free to leave feedback.

Peace out ;3
