All are welcome here, save demons such as you.

Demons are one of the Races in Pyre. They are humans who have survived in the Downside for long enough to undergo a physical transformation.

Description

For an unknown reason, humans begin to transform into demons after living in the Downside for a long enough time. The transformation takes place after approximately 10 years of exile. No similar affliction is shown to affect other non-human races.

The transformation causes the Demon to grow large horns, claws, hooves, and markings on their skin. Their voice becomes distorted, and they gain even more strength and survivability. If a Demon leaves the Downside, their transformation gradually reverts.

There is a tradition of Demons changing their names after their transformation. Ignarius supposedly took on a new name, it is unknown if Jodariel had changed her name.

Gameplay

Demons are slow but powerful in the Rites. They have a large aura and high glory, but low speed and respawn time. Their cast is wide-ranged but fairly slow. They're suited for defense, but can also make a powerful offense that barrels through adversaries and score a large amount of points.

Masteries

The first mastery branch increases the offensive power of Demons, the second mastery branch focuses on defense.
