Demon Host History
Books of old hold an unexpected amnount on Demon Host, at least that is, for the trained eye. Demon Host not being their true name they are often called by many other names. The name most belived to be that of the original, "Illfeinds", can be found in some of the oldest scrolls. First and formost, fairytales. Many say that this world of laughther and joy are bed time storys for children. Now befor one thinks that this has nothing to do with fairy tales, they should know, fairy tales with happy endings a few and far. They are often dark tales with little joy. These creatures are that of these storys. A highland town, suffering from a freeze over, were now suffering from starvation. Their only crops had been frozen and now even the hunting slowed. While on a hunt, it was said a dying young woman was brought out and cut to atract bores. When a purpel mist washed over the forest the men fleed. Not is known what transpired during her vanishing but what is known is that when the mist turned back to its grayish and blue color and lifted from the forest and town nothing was the same. Crops grew and became ripe in a matter of days and huntsmen were weighed down by pounds apon pounds of meat. Ofcourse no blessing from the unknown comes without a price. The births, the births happened. To what, not even doctors nor clergy men could fully understand. One word was offered from both: Demon. These demon children riped through their mothers stomaches or chewed out with their teeth. While all this was horrifying, the women of the town would not let the children be killed. In some cases it even seemed as if the children were devestaed by the loss of their murdered mothers. The mothers they murdered. At time, with a lucky few, the birth went on without aa hitch, the mother and child surviving. What might have caused the childrens shunning when after becoming used to by the townsfolk? Their sibblings. Having watch their mothers ripped apat or at the very luckiest nearly killeed by their just born sibblings drove an anger and hatred in their hearts for their demonic brothers and sisters. Having children of their own they taught them to hate, and in the end, thats what they did. It is said that the blooded woman still walks the town alopng with all the slaughtered women. They walk in a silent cry, not to kill their children.
