General Overview

Demons are angels who rebelled and fell from grace after they were granted free will. The fall caused them to lose a majority of their angelic abilities and form. After the fall, the head of all demons, Kemuel, divided the newly formed demons into seven houses with princes to rule over each as he ruled overall. Each house has seven legions of demons under its control.

Their war against the light continues in their newfound abode in Hell. They will not rest until every soul is theirs and Heaven is a smoldering ash pile. Despite all this, Kemuel, who is now Satan, at his core is still an angel and thus bound by the rules of the forces that made him. Kemuel is both the King of Hell and the Prince of Pride.

Demons feed off the wanton desires and base natures of men and creatures alike. It is how they are able to corrupt the souls and sentence them to Hell.

Unlike their angelic counterparts, demons do not have shells to use within the mortal realms, so they rely heavily on possession of a host body they may wear for centuries until it is spent or destroyed.

Incubus and Succubus

Human and Demon hybrids. Often feeding off of sexual energy and possibly other emotions like stress, grief, and depression, etc. Incubus (male) and Succubus (female) have been known to breed with each other from time to time in hopes to create a shell strong enough to hold Satan this has so far been unsuccessful.


Demons lost certain powers after their fall but gained a few new abilities in the darkness of the pit. To make up for these losses, they have turned to spell casting which they use to tie themselves back to the Source to recharge at a limited capacity unlike the angels, although this limited capacity does not apply to Satan or Samael who retain their angelic forms.
