A word that is used to describe a sinister creature from Hell or the underworld. The word comes from the Greek ‘daimon’ meaning ‘divine power’. Originally the Daemons where celestial beings capable of helping others as well as causing harm. Some had benign dispositions whilst others were cruel. They were blamed for mysterious illness caused and misfortune. During the middle Ages however the Daemons were delegated as an evil creature from Hell by Christians. During this period the Daemons were also known for causing sexual misconduct.
