Demons are the most widespread race of fiends. They are usually, chaotic evil by nature, and are native to the Abyss. Demons have no true rulers, though powerful demon lords and deities are able to gain enough power and influence to gain control over sizable armies of demonic creatures. They are also the sworn enemies of the devils, though their ageless Blood War.
