General definition (in Jainism)

Source: archive.org: Trisastisalakapurusacaritra

Rāvaṇi (रावणि) is another name for Kumbhakarṇa (one of Rāvaṇa’s sons), according to the Jain Ramayana and chapter 7.7 [The killing of Rāvaṇa] of Hemacandra’s 11th century Triṣaṣṭiśalākāpuruṣacaritra: an ancient Sanskrit epic poem narrating the history and legends of sixty-three illustrious persons in Jainism.—Accordingly, “[...] When the battle had been going on for a long time, the army of the Rākṣasas was broken by the Vānaras like a forest by winds. [...] Then the brothers began to fight eagerly, drawing and raining various missiles unceasingly. Then Indrajit and Kumbhakarṇa and the other Rākṣasas ran up from devotion to their masters, like servants of Kṛtānta. Rāma obstructed Kumbhakarṇa; Lakṣmaṇa Rāvaṇi. [...]”.
