Angels and Demons, Part 5: Demon Lore

Same as almost every religion has angel lore, so too do they have demon lore. Demons are the embodiment of sin and evil, something to be feared and avoided. Christianity/Judaism has Lucifer's minions, Zoroastrianism has Ahriman's demons -- even Hindu has the Asuras, the demons who continually try to wrest the booze of immortality from the gods. 


Demons symbolize the ever-present something that needs to be fought against, but they also are the perfect "tortured soul" archetypes. If your hero or heroine needs a challenge, converting a demon to the side of good might just be the things. I know demons have featured in more than one of my works in progress.
