Baddox had no recollection of his past. All he knew were his name and the existence of the demon inside of him. "Will I ever regain my memory? What an I supposed to protect? What is the meaning of my existence?" No matter how desperately he searched for answers, he found none. Though he fought with great conviction, the fiend-possessed Baddox could not shake the sense of dread that afflicted him. "My justice could turn to wickedness at any moment... The demon will make sure of that."
Essentially, loss of memory is amnesia. Amnesia (from Greek ἀμνησία from ἀ- meaning "without" and μνήμη "memory") is a deficit in memory caused by brain damage, disease, or psychological trauma. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost due to the extent of damage that was caused.
There are two main types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde amnesia. Retrograde amnesia is the inability to retrieve information that was acquired before a particular date, usually the date of an accident or operation. In some cases the memory loss can extend back decades, while in others the person may lose only a few months of memory. Anterograde amnesia is the inability to transfer new information from the short-term store into the long-term store. People with this type of amnesia cannot remember things for long periods of time. These two types are not mutually exclusive.
