Demons

Demons are viewed to be horrifying and negative because of their appearance. However, in reality, demons are the known to be friendly and caring compared to their angel counterparts. Demons are misunderstood and marginalised by most societies. Demons have the memories of the dead to look like monstrosities to the culture the demon is born in.

Basic Information

Anatomy & Morphology

Demons will have anatomies similar to the sapient species that are common on the planet but having an appearance that terrifies the culture. The appearance will be different depending on the culture’s customs at the time the child is born.

Biological Traits

Demons will have similar abilities and anatomy to the sapient species they got their traits from. A demon cannot use magic similarly to any species, besides using their soul to summon things from hell and use their soul to mildly interact with the physical world.

Genetics and Reproduction

A demon female and a demon male will have sexual intercourse. The male sperm will fertilise the female egg. The gestation period will last roughly 11 months, during this time the embryo will collect souls of the dead sapient species and gathering memories and understanding on what’s their cultural values. Depending on the number of sagacious souls in the area the demon will gather traits depending on what’s the most dominate sapient souls are in the area.

Growth Rate & Stages

It takes 20 years for a demon to fully develop and mature.

Ecology and Habitats

Depending on the traits they have, demons can adapt to any environment in the galaxy, but if the characteristics they have to prevent them living in one environment they would avoid it.

Dietary Needs and Habits

Demons are neither an omnivore, carnivore, or herbivore. They get their diet from a culture that has a negative view on that diet.

Biological Cycle

A demon will go through seven stages through their life. Embryo, infant, child, teenager, adult, elder, and hell razer. A demon embryo stage will only last for 11 months; during this time, the embryo will collect souls of dead sapient species that are common in the area. The fetus will collect the memories of the souls to understand the culture that is common in the area, once the fetus has a strong understanding of the culture they will develop their anatomy that is similar to the most common sapient soul they collected, and will develop traits that are viewed as horrifying and terrifying within the culture. The next stage is infant, which will only last 5 years, during this time the demon will begin understanding how to walk and speak its native language. After that is the child stage, this stage will last until they hit 13 years of age, during this time the demon will begin to learn how to breathe hellfire. After that is teenager which will continue till they hit 19 years of age, this is when the demon will start having memory flashbacks of the souls they collected during their time as an embryo, this is also the stage the demon is sexually active. The next step is the adult stage, which will last for 50 years, this stage is when the demon can make their soul summon things that are from hell and make their soul interact with the physical world. The elder stage is a stage is a stage where the demon is fully capable of using their soul to affect the physical world by altering light and mildly gravity, this stage will only last for over 500 years. Hell razer is a stage when the demon fully remembers the memories of the souls it gathered, the demon would use their soul to create a miniature hell that they can use to store the souls of the dead and create a new form of hellfire for their individual use.

Additional Information

Uses, Products & Exploitation

If a demon soldier or civilian is captured by the Revelation. They would be sent to slave camps to serve as slaves and food for the soldiers. The demon residence is well fed and medicated. But if the Revelation needs food or the demon is refusing to follow orders. The demon would be slaughtered for meat.

Average Intelligence

Demons are very intelligent creatures; they have been able to create horrifying constructs with other species because of their memories of the souls they consumed. Demons are often seen in military roles and in the art industry creating monstrous paintings, films, and music. Demons are also known to be very isolating and wise.

Perception and Sensory Capabilities

Demons will have similar sensory capabilities with the sapient species they gathered its traits from. It is uncommon for a demon to have above average sensors then the sapient species the demon gathered its attributes from.   Demons are able to use their souls to summon things from hell, like breathing hellfire, screams of the dammed, etc. They can use their souls to interact with the physical world, but it isn’t as effective compared to the angels.

Civilization and Culture

Major Organizations

United Galaxy, Imperium, and The Davaga Empire

History

Demons have a similar history as the angels in the sense when the species departed from the United Galaxy in the year 2090AD.  

UNITED GALAXY

After the rebellions and the galaxy-wide migration to different empires. Demons and angels are viewed to be the empire’s enemy. The council member Trinigan has a plan to prevent a galaxy-wide genocide on angels and demons. Trinigan made an order called ‘The Bill of Blood’, this bill will give the protection of angels and demons from any negative social and political backlash. However, demons and angels cannot work in the same divisions as any other sapient species, angels and demons cannot be a part of colony missions and colonise any world that was once owned by the enemy empire.  

IMPERIUM

When demons and angels are accepted into the empire, they can only work in the factories and the military. However, a few months later the workers at the factories complained that the demons are scaring the workers and making them unable to work because of fear. This made the empire give the demons only one-job opportunity, and that is the military.  

DAVAGA EMPIRE

When demons became civilians of the empire, Filiare sees a strong opportunity with the demon species. Filiare created a specialise formation within the military, using the demons as a philological weapon against the enemies of the empire.
