KAMSA

The son of King Ugrasen and Padmatavi... or so everyone thought.

While his father was away on business a demon flying overhead spotted Padmatavi looking all sensuous and sexy so he transformed himself into a spitting double of Ugrasen and had his wicked way with her.

At least that explains why he was a bit of a loose cannon. Overthrowing his own father and crowning himself king of Vrishni was just the start.

He was tipped off that he would die at the hands of his step sisters eighth born, so he took the precaution of locking Devaki and Vasudeva in a dungeon, sparing their lives only on the condition that they handed all of their sons over to him to dispose of. He got the first six but the seventh, Balarama, was spirited away to the womb of Rohini, Vasudeva's co-wife, for safe keeping.

Unfortunately for Kamsa, Devaki's eighth born was Krishna the eighth Avatar of Vishnu. 'Nuff said.
