  1. I’m writing a story and looking for something that could maybe show up in a strike of lightning and leave a sulfur smell, I know the sulfur smell is more of a movie/tv thing but I like that idea.

  2. Actually when it comes to Succubi and Incubi they aren’t gender specific, they are actually role specific. Typically an incubus is “dominant ” and a succubus is “submissive”. I don’t remember all the details, but I’m pretty sure that this is the base.

    • Both the Gargoyle and the imp will work for that. The Gargoyle is common with the smell when the demon is created by a human wizard or such. Perhaps after three years the smell might go away…. The imp demon might be called on by the Gargoyle as a servant. Good luck

  3. I don’t know what demon I am looking for but it is haunting me and my dream and all of my friends and it can make you be lucid in and a dream but you can here it talk to you in the real world but you are asleep

    • Demon Maybe conected to an item in the home mirror or brush.Something of personal energy. In fact this demon feeds off FEAR. So try not to fear it when your awake. The more fear it gets the stronger it gets. It may get so strong that it can follow you in across the state line if you choose to move.

  4. My best friend’s nine year old daughter has a severe juvenile kidney disease. She’s too sick for a transplant and now her heart and lungs r starting to fail as well. She has ADHD, OCD, PTSD, White Coat Syndrome, Bi Polar Disorder with Schizophrenic tendencies, Crohns Disease, Acid Reflux Disorder (with ulcers), 2 kinds of Anemia, A tube in her stomach for Dialysis and a G Tube in her stomach cuz she can’t eat. She’s terminal and she knows it.
    Last night she had a night terror about a monster that looked like Venom (big, tall, all black, big mouth, white eyes, and claws) chasing her. She hasn’t been willing to close her eyes since. She’s terrified. Her mom(my bestie) and I think that it’s a demon. Does anyone know what demon it is?

    • I don’t know if the little girl is still alive. If she is still alive is she on pain killers? My mother was allergic to codeine and it gave her horribly scary hallucinations. The other thing is…have you tried praying? Ask Jesus to come and hold her hands, ask Jesus to accompany her to heaven. Yea, tho I walk through the valley of death, I fear no evil, for thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory for ever and ever. Amen
