The history of demons is a long and terrifying one. Many demons adopted by the Christian faith came from older systems of beliefs. Those long-since-forgotten religions were taken into the fold and their deities were cast down as demons and other fiends of the Underworld. Others, of course, were said to have been from the host of angels who rebelled in Heaven with Lucifer and were cast into Hell where they became demons themselves. And yet others seem to have been made up by various writers over the years who were looking to pad out books and manuals on the nature of who and what lived in Hell.
Regardless of where the demons came from, it's safe to say that they're generally not pleasant fellows for the most part. Demons are demonic, hence the clever name. Evil creatures bent on sowing discord and chaos. Monstrous fiends who seek to turn souls away from the light, corrupt the innocent and destroy all goodness where it may be found.
