First, you must understand that most Tascryn demons are not evil. They are everyday folks, just doing a job. Whether the deed is done with sin and seduction, terror and torment or death and devastation, it’s all in a day's work.
All of the tascryn demons work for Pahele. He is the source of all their power. He directs them to do as those greater than him design. Usually he gets his orders from the Norns, but occasionally his ability to get the job done is specially requested by other, higher powers.
Most of Pahele's orders, the ones that keep his minions busy, are called tascs. A tasc is the process of transitioning a mortal soul from one life into the next.
The mortal soul is a beautiful thing. It carries a person through their often harsh reality, helping them to survive a world of sorrow and maintain a positive outlook. The soul is the part that cries out at injustice and fights for what’s right. It also gives the mortal a will to live despite all they may suffer. When the time is near to their death, the soul must be prepared for the transition to prevent trauma and allow the soul to find the right path.
There are five levels of tascyn demons to achieve this. The first and least powerful are Aykrn, dream demons, who usually lack true form in the mortal realm. Dream Demons are similar to some descriptions of imps. They often look like children, when they are seen at all. They prepare willing souls for transition to the next life, sometimes offering precognitive dreams.
The second level are the Synn demons, incubus and succubus. They use desire to seduce souls into accepting fate. Synn demons can control their physical form to become what their tasc most desires. In addition to their sexual skill, they release pheromones that completely relax the tasc in sexual satisfaction.
The third group is the Cyvampis blood demons, who drain the resistance from more stubborn souls. Blood Demons are somewhat vampire-like and sometimes less than pleasant. Cyvampis live on blood and avoid sunlight. If a mortal is drained and fed cyvampis blood, they will become a vampire. Cyvampis are strongly discouraged from creating vampires. Since most vampires must be killed because of their violent natures, it is rarely done.
The forth are Daelyns, death demons who are responsible for the transition of non-mortals and other higher beings. They also police the other levels and initiate transition (execute) any who dare to defy tascryn rules. There are thankfully only three Daelyns.
The fifth and final group is the Tascryn Royals who maintain order and rule over all the demon legions. They are masters of all magic that the other levels can direct as well as a few special talents of their own. Being of this royal group is both a blessing and a curse. They are innately connected to every one of their lower legions and can support or feel the pain of each during every tasc. The wellbeing of these royal demons is reflected in the way the others flourish or suffer.
