Day 27 – Demons
Day 27: Demons
What type of demon is your OC most vulnerable to? How would it attack/manipulate them? What type of demon is your OC most likely to attract the attention of? Which type of demon are they least vulnerable to?
“I will give you a life free of the Taint, a lifetime with your beloved and many children. A lifetime of peace and happiness in which you can seek and nurture the traditions of your people. What say you, my sweet Warden? All you have to do is let me touch you and I can erase the Taint in you and you will let me go in peace. You’re not responsible for everyone else, are you?”
A Desire demon with such an offer would definitely be the one to nearly break Fian. She never asked for any of the things that happened and the thought of the Taint and what will and could happen to her when it takes over horrifies her to no end. She also never asked for the kind of responsibility everyone placed on her and it is the one thing she is so very glad to give up.
During her journey, before the end of the Blight however, a Sloth demon would probably more likely to be attracted to her – feeling and sensing her tiredness and exhaustion, ready to offer solace and calm, a moment to rest in all this chaos.
Pride demons would probably be the ones she is least vulnerable to. She never thought much of herself and never saw herself as an important part in the big picture. Even when she slew the Archdemon and everyone celebrated her, she was confused by it, seeing the ones with her as at least as important as she.
Aren was always especially immune to any sort of manipulation. somehow, whenever she was in the fade she had some sort of feeling for discerning what was real and what wasn’t. Having a big amount of knowledge on most demons helped her there. Additionally Aren compartmentalises nearly everything in her life due to the nature of her mental state. Making it incredibly hard for demons to manipulate her. After she realises that the irony of something that is a disability in her waking life being an absolute strength once she is asleep is not lost on her. Feeling relatively secure with that knowledge she started specifically seeking out spirits and demons for her purposes after she learned about blood magic. Especially with spirits she was never afraid of giving them what they wanted since she believed in their inherently good nature. With demons she found a way of compromise in most cases that worked for them both. If you’d ask her it was always a give and take between her and the fade.
It never happened in her lifetime, but the one kind of demon she would maybe have fallen victim too if they were really smart about it would be a pride demon. If one had ever found out why exactly Aren was so calm and sure in her dealings with them they might have found a way to exploit her feeling secure in her abilities to their advantage.
