Bone-Sucker Demons

Content warning: death, mass graves, destruction of human remains

Bone-sucker demons are a type of passive demon that burrow underground and consume the bones of the dead. In doing this, they take in the remnents of the energy associated with the death of that mortal, especially in the case of violent deaths. Because they don't seek to cause the violence itself and instead merely come along sometimes decades or longer after death, they are classified by demonologists as passive demons, not violence demons.

Basic Information

Anatomy

Bone-sucker demons tend to be small enough to easily burrow underground and get into the coffins of the dead.

Genetics and Reproduction

As demons, bone-sucker demons cannot reproduce.

Ecology and Habitats

Bone-sucker demons thrive in places where they can draw the latent energy associated with death from the bones of deceased mortals. Places where bone-sucker demons thrive include locations of mass graves and designated cemeteries.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Some bone-sucker demons can only consume the chaotic and violent energy associated with death when the bones come from a freshly deceased mortal, while others can consume energy that is hundreds of years old.

Additional Information

Geographic Origin and Distribution

Bone-sucker demons can live anywhere in the world where cemeteries or mass graves exist.

Average Intelligence

Bone-sucker demons do not tend to be highly intelligent and mostly respond to stimuli by instinct, not after thinking through their actions.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Bone-sucker demons can sense other supernatural beings, such as other demons and angels, and try to avoid contact with these beings if at all possible. They can also sense the energy associated with violent death for some distance, which draws them to cemeteries and mass grave locations.

VANQUISH ON SIGHT!

Bone-sucker demons must be vanquished immediately upon discovery due to the pollution they cause when digesting mortal remains. Mortal plant and animal life in the polluted area will die rapidly after contact, and some other paranormal beings have reported ill effects, though not death. The area infected by the demon must then be cleansed. Anyone in need of assistance with vanquishing or cleansing may contact the Mortal Protection Agency.
