Unlike Demons, which are extradimensional creatures, Daemons are what are best described as negative beings, or walking vortexes of dark matter. They are beings of pure evil that are from a prallel universe. As soon as a gap is breached between our universe and theirs, a massive extinction often occurs. Daemons are unstoppable, except by the Demons and Gods.
The last Daemon invasion took place 65 million years ago, and wiped out the first truly intelligent civilization on earth.

In short, they are your soul. The spelling is taken from the His Dark Materials books. The concept in the books was taken from Aristotle's concept of a daimon who was his spiritual guide.

A daemon in our world is incorporeal, more of a voice in your head. When people visualize them, they are usually animals. They can shapeshift to almost anything. Eventually they will settle as an animal that reflects your personality and character the best.
My daemon is settled as a red fox.

Variant of daimon.
Daimon: "An attendant spirit"

I have several daemon processes running in the background that attend to my various needs.

1.A type of demon in strict reference to a Greek definition rather than the often associated Christian interpretation. "Daemon" is actually the mis-romanization of the Greek word "Daimon" for there is no Greek dipthong for "ae". It is often used incorrectly by people attempting to sound pretentious, arrogant and self important who really no nothing of the subject they speak about.
"Through his spelling of 'daemon' it was clear that he was attempting to make himself sound intelligent, thus failing miserably."

"My Latin teacher kicks so much ass because we bitched together about pretentious assholes and their hilarious misusage of spellings and Greek adaptions such as 'daemon'."

The orignal way of spelling Demon. Also used in Finland, as I have personally experienced.
Demons are commonly known for being in cahoots with the devil, Satan. They have been known to posses humans, and have them do their bidding. Some fighters (like myself) have been known to use daemons to an advantage in martial arts. However, being able to control it requires deep and frequent meditation.
Other GaiaOnline User:Um, Lord Balmung of Azure Sky? Are you from Finland?
Lord Balmung of Azure Sky: No. Why?
O:Because that's how we spell Dæmon.
L:Interesting.

A Demon? Isn't that what Satan uses to internally destroy a human?

The demon... It's too strong.. I can't fight anymore...
