Volteka gazed from above as flames engulfed the city. This blazing abode was home to countless demons, and they had spent years building it. Though the surface belonged to the humans, the city would not fall so easily. After all, devils and demons needed a place to live, too.
A demon, daemon or fiend, is a supernatural, often malevolent being prevalent in religion, occultism, literature, fiction, mythology and folklore. In demonology, a demon is considered an unclean spirit, a fallen angel, or a spirit of unknown type which may cause demonic possession, calling for an exorcism. In Western occultism and Renaissance magic, a demon is a spiritual entity that may be conjured and controlled.
The original Greek word daimon does not carry the negative connotation, it denotes a spirit or divine power, much like the Latin genius or numen. Daimōn most likely came from the Greek verb daiesthai (to divide, distribute).
