Is there a hierarchy among demons? Because the demon that Matthonius and Orion are fighting doesn't seem to be the brightest bulb in the box, not saying it's stupid, but it doesn't seem to possess much intelligence. Whereas the demon I used in Naomi's history was smart enough to strike up conversation. And can any demon create a Tainted One, and wouldn't the powers a Tainted One get differ per demon?
If I may be so bold as to give my two cents into this, would it be a good idea to only make the smarter demons capable of creating Tainted Ones? The ones that can think beyond instincts alone. Make them officers, or something like that, that keep the less intelligent types in check. They lack brawn, but their psychic abilities (the ones the Tainted Ones get) are used to keep the lower ones under control.
- Lower demons
- Arch demons
To get back on weapons, those rifles, are they like muskets where you have to load every bullet separately with gunpowder. Or do they use bullets with gunpowder inside a casing, like nowadays. Because if its the first thing, that would make Naomi's weapon a technological wonder.
And plumbing, does it exist? Baths, showers even toilets, do they exist? Or do we all crap in a hole and wash ourselves with buckets? :D
