The author constructs new families of irreducible objects of a certain category \(K\) which are not quotients of generalized Verma modules but have many analogous properties. The objects of \(K\) constructed by parabolic induction were studied in [A. Rocha-Caridi, Lect. Notes Math. 933, 176-190 (1982; Zbl 0495.17009)]. First examples of such modules are built in this paper.
