The Story of Albion

The Demons of Hell

In the strictest sense, the demons are not a faction within Albion. They do not live or reside there in any real sense of the word. However, given the impact they have had on Albion’s history and the frequency with which they manage to claw their way into the world, it would be foolish to ignore them.

In Albion, you might meet a rogue demon that has managed to cross over, but they are more commonly encountered in service to the Disciples of Morgana.


The Imps

As the smallest demons, Imps spend most of their time either hiding from or being pushed around by their larger brethren. Though they aren’t the strongest of creatures, the claws and teeth of an Imp are sharp enough to give most pause. However, they are most deadly at range, taking to the air and spitting fire at their enemies. Imps also possess magic to even the odds, using dark curses to bring prey down to their level.

Some imps are bound to service by the Disciples of Morgana. Their coloring is darker and they tend to be more devious, luring unsuspecting wanderers off the paths of Albion and into the demon realms.

The Fiends

The Fiends are the most common of the demons. While they are usually only encountered in the demonic planes, they will jump into Albion at any chance they get. Fiends are humanoid in appearance, but with long claw-tipped arms and thick, rocky skin. Some speculate that Fiends evolve over time by accumulating souls, eventually becoming Demon Lords. Others suggest that demons never change, and Fiends simply exist as petty manifestations of hatred.

Fiends can also be slaves of the Disciples of Morgana. As with Imps, their behavior is different and their colors muted, though they remain similar in all other respects.

The Gatekeepers

Gatekeepers are large demons of impressive power. What marks them as different from most other demons is their ability to remain in Albion.

Gatekeepers use this freedom to wander through Albion, preparing the way for more demons to follow. If the Gatekeeper is killed and their body ripped back to hell, a way to the demonic planes is revealed for anyone foolish or brave enough to take it.

The Demon Lords

Though lesser demons might be mistaken for human from afar, no such mistake could be made with the Demon Lords. Reaching heights of seven meters, with four arms, three heads, and lava seeping from their skin like angry blood, they are nightmarish to behold and linger in the minds of any who see them.

A Demon Lord may be the evolution of a Fiend, or perhaps the merging of a pack of demons or something else entirely. Those who have encountered one don’t waste time asking such silly questions!
