Demons are a type of outsider, a fiend embodying chaos and evil.[2]


At the beginning of all things, following the titanic struggle between the three progenitor wyrms, the dragon Khyber, bound in the depths of the world, spat forth the fiends and demons, who ruled the world for millions of years, known as the Age of Demons.[3][4]

Some 1.5 million years ago, with the help of the couatls, the dragons rose from their primitive state and began to revolt against their fiendish Overlords. This war raged for over a million years.[3][4]

Ultimately, the couatls sacrificed most of their race to bind the most powerful of the fiendish Overlords back down to Khyber, to be trapped for eternity within the Silver Flame.[3][4][5]

With the Overlords defeated, many demons went into hiding in Khyber or the Demon Wastes.[3] Some of these demons work for the Lords of Dust, seeking to free their bound masters.[6]
