Heyyo! I am certainly intrigued and would love to reserve a spot while I figure out a character sheet and work on that. I’m in a lot of storybooks and like to join the new ones, so if you do end up having any questions about things, I’m happy to help in whatever way I can! : D

Alrighty, I'm putting together a character profile and I've got some questions in regards to demon anatomy, and the lore surrounding demons (in particular, which things you're wanting to use and which to disregard).

So firstly, what's the average life-span of a demon? If it changes based on the variant, I'm thinking specifically of Ruby.

Also, do demons have a 'human-looking' form? Demons are often categorized as fallen angels and most depictions of angels have them able to look like a human if they choose. Basically, I'm asking are the wings retractable and able to be hidden, or are they there all the time?

My final question I'd say I have at the moment is are demons prone to get implants as well, or is that something that only humans typically do?

Thanks!

Great questions!
#1: Slightly longer than a humans, around 125 is a good age to die. (Archdemons are way older though)
#2: I hadnt thought about this, but I should have. I would say that you couldnt. But if you have a special character idea, then go ahead and use it. If you are wanting to do a ruby, then their wings may be retractable, but they cant change their skin color.
#3: if a demon gets an implant, they lose their abilities, except for rubies. But normally, demons have disdain for such things.

Hope that helped!

Happy to help! I will be changing the beginning premise here in a bit, not drastically, but you get to choose to be a volunteer or researcher

@winterwolf0100
I accepted it, but there is one slight issue. The DSA might not exist. I think that if it did, it would have a different name. So just Keep that in mind. : )

Alright! What type of name are you thinking it would have, or what would it be called?

@winterwolf0100
Well, I like the idea of it. I always liked the idea that you would die and have paperwork to do. XD
Maybe DS(damned souls) could be in a separate island of he'll and the corporation on the main island is the filter. Making sure souls go where they need to.
I'm not sure what it could be called though.

Afterlife Assortment Agency

Triple A.
XD
Afterlife Placement Service
APS
There is a lot of cool names it could be.

Awesome! I'll start drafting one up! Out of curiosity, do you have any idea what sort of character you're thinking of creating?
