Like, you have the Alphas who are all scary and cause Drama scenes, then you could have Betas who are tough but not TOO tough, then on down until you get to Omegas, who are scrawny lil' runts with 35 attribute points or so who have a long, LONG climb ahead of them through the demonic hierarchy. And some of those are all, like, "Know what? Heck with this, I'm joining the rebels."
Kind of a long shot, but I, for one, would dig it.
Sounds intriguing, but since TorgE is redefining Demons as true Inherently Evil(rather than vicious predators like oTorg Tharkoldu), such "capo" creatures would be Occultech constructs or another enslaved race from other conquered worlds, if more "demon-like" than human Race.
(And they would be introduced relatively recently in the history of Tharkold, since there has been only one "Race" other than Tharkoldu for a long time.)
I'm not sure if they can be promoted to the true Demonhood, and there can be a chance that their "promotion" is actually an illithid-esque body snatching predatory parasitism.
