AMAZING. Not one person on this poll has had a bad experience with a demon! REALLY??? Interesting. Darn demons are so clever. Magical indeed.

This thread is for the unbiased view of demons, hence why I posted stuff from Zarathustra, well known for his knowledge... but even he issues a big warning about keeping them.

I'm just reflecting an a certain incident that went on for a month, and several other incidences that aren't being recorded in this poll for whatever reason. If we were to ask this question a few month ago the numbers would be different. :lol:

IN MY YEARS IN THE DARK ARTS I'VE WORKED WITH NUMEROUS CLASSIFICATIONS OF "DEMONS". IF YOU WANT TO GET TECHNICAL THERE IS MORE THAN 1,300 "DEMONS" CLASSIFIED BY THOSE IN THE KNOW. THEY RANGE FROM SLIGHTLY ANNOYING TO CAPABLE OF DEATH. BUT, I'M TALKING ABOUT LIVING DEMONS, WHICH AGAIN BRINGS UP AN IMPORTANT POINT - ARE YOU DISCUSSING DEMON SPIRITS OR LIVING DEMONS?

THERE'S A LOT OF BLOWHARDS OUT THERE WHO CLAIM A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE ON DEMONS & DEMONOLOGY, AND IF YOU ARE GOING TO TRUST YOURSELF, YOUR HOME AND/OR YOUR FAMILY WITH A "DEMON" THEN YOU BETTER KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE GETTING YOURSELF INTO. WHAT DOES THE PRACTITIONER YOU ARE WORKING WITH CLASSIFY AS A DEMON?

WHAT DO I MEAN?

DO THEY CLASSIFY IT AS SPIRITUAL OR ASTRAL?
DO THEY CLASSIFY BY RELIGION? IF SO, WHAT RELIGION?
DO THEY CLASSIFY BY CAPABILITY? IF SO, WHAT CAPABILITIES?
DO THEY CLASSIFY BY CULTURAL BEHAVIOR? IF SO, WHAT BEHAVIOR?

WHAT DO THEY MEASURE THE CLASSIFICATION OF "DEMON" AS?
Yeah, this is pretty major.

It's really rather tough to take these views into account without all of the details, and many who keep/evoke demons may not be working with what others are considering when they think of the term "demon". A lot can get confused. I'm wary of these discussions and the info some share for that reason, it's not so cut and dry...

IT'S NOT CUT & DRY AT ALL. THERE'S GROUPS IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD CLASSIFY A GARGOYLE AS A "DEMON". HOW DEMONIC ARE WE TALKING? ARE WE TALKING SOMETHING LIKE A BUKAVAC? OR MORE LIKE A CHUPACABRA? WHAT TYPE/RACE/KIND OF DEMON ARE WE DISCUSSING?

unknow =p thats what
many kinds
diferent of those can or might be spoken on the thread and around 8 or so kinds have been spoken on the forum by other members in general.
More or less these are the numbers (some arent so demonic and more like a gargolye others are more like a mix of balaur djinn (dont have a chupacabra but do have a balaur).
Just ask around Ash its a huge mess. =p

THAT SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. IT SOUNDS LIKE EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN TYPE OF "DEMON" IN THEIR KEEP. IF THAT'S THE CASE AND YOU ARE ALL TALKING ABOUT DIFFERENT KINDS OF DEMONS THEN THERE IS NO VIABLE MEASUREMENT OF THE LEVEL OF HAPPINESS OR ***NO REDIRECTS ALLOWED*** THE "DEMONS" CAUSE. YOU REALLY NEED TO COMPARE APPLES TO APPLES WHEN IT COMES TO TALKING ABOUT WHAT AN ENTITY DOES IN A HUMAN'S LIFE.

Well, this question is better posed to the site as a whole.
It really is better suited for its own thread though, than here in my opinion.

I have no interest in working with demons. They are not a field I study. However this thread is something the others on the subject are not, objective and a record of personal experiences with a poll people can answer anonymously.
I merely made it as a place where someone could look to get an idea of what's what without having to dig through 10+ threads and read a lot of unrelated discussion.

There are tons of questions for me still remaining demons... ranks and species... types... if all demons are BA or if some range to DA or even GA perhaps... These aren't things I can answer.
