About Lucifer's Demons: of the Supernatural Canon
OriginsSome lore states demons were the first inhabitants of the earth, some take a more biblical stance about all demons. Little is known about the absolute origins of all of them. Either way, they are one of the most diverse supernatural species.
There are thousands of demonic species, they are impossible to name. Some are only found in different dimensions, while others reside on earth. Some infect and inhabit human bodies - which is the most well known of demons - and they happen to also be Lucifer's Demons . They most commonly inhabit a human host and exorcism is needed. However, other types of demons can do the same - some even function like a parasite. Some demons impregnate a human to create their young. Many demons have their own special ability such as a vengeance demon. Other species are half breeds - vampires of demonic origins, like the animinus vampire .
The Old OnesSome very old demons who originated from earth are extremely powerful and at one time, God-like. These demons are called The Old Ones. They are purebred and powerful demons, said to have ruled the earth before man, fighting wars constantly. Eventually they were driven away to other dimensions inexplicably, killed in war, or locked in the Deeper Well (a secret hole running through the entire world which acts as demon graveyard) by The Powers That Be. Read more about the old one origin story here.
- The less human a demon looks, the more demon blood they have in them. True demons don't look human at all but are powerful monstrous creatures.
- It is a common belief that most demons lack a soul and evil. Many are, but there are many who aren't.
Powers may vary depending on the demon, but for the most part, almost all demons have enhanced strength & durability. They are generally much stronger than a human and sometimes a vampire. It all depends on age and species and skill.
Common WeaknessesAgain, this may still vary, but for the most part:
- Angel 's Touch. If the angel is powerful enough, it can kill a demon. Will not work if the demon is very strong or an Old One.
- Exorcisms. If the demon possesses a human body, then this ritual is affective for killing them.
- Brute force. Sometimes the best way to kill a demon is to fight it head on. Killing a demon often includes decapitation, using a special weapon, fire, or attacking a certain part of its body, or using a magical spell to put it back where it belongs.
