A demon is a creature that's created seemingly using part or all of a human soul, and that needs to feed on souls to live.[1]

Thulig-sa is a demon, as apparently is the Lower Town Monster (created with Bane's soul).

Destroying a demon, according to Ishtier, requires its true name and a great deal of fire or water.[2]. The soul used to create the demon appears to be then freed; Bane's soul is freed in that way, but (possibly because of the Blood-binding) it sticks around, becoming in effect a creature similar to a demon but with more self-awareness or free will.
