: Well, going from the earlier definition, the word demonic
: would suggest either being semi-divine of being a
: spiritual being. Neither of which Myrkrydia are. And
: if, as Olorin suggests, the words "demonic"
: and "monstous" are synonymous, that would
: mean that, logically, Mauls are demons, Ghols are
: demons, Oghres are deomons, Bre'unor are probably
: demons, that big earth elemental thing that the
: Deciever is trapped by is a demon, dragons are demons.
: I could go on like that for a long time. It just
: doesn't work.
Personally I would say any evil (for the sake of being evil, therefore it would have to be at least some what intelligent) monster can be called a demon.
But even if the Myrkridia are not technically demons, they do act like them.
Chaotic Evil is the D&D term.
