Revision as of 15:35, 20 March 2012

Art by John Howe

Demons were a race of evil spirits that ranked among the most powerful of Morgoth's servants. The chief of the demons were the Balrogs, seduced to Melkor's service in the beginning of the world. It seems the Dark Lord also had other lesser demons at his command.[1][2]

Names

The Quenya word for "demon" is rauka, and the Sindarin cognate was raug. Both derive from the root RUK.[3]

In Gnomish, one of Tolkien's early conceptions of an Elven language, the word for "demon" is graug. A cognate of the same meaning in Qenya is given as arauke.[4]

Portrayal in adaptations

1982-97: Middle-earth Role Playing:

Demons are portrayed as to exist in several types: Balrogs, Black Demons, Lassaraukar ("Leaf-demons"), Vampires, Demon-trolls, etc.[5][6]

2002-5: The Lord of the Rings Roleplaying Game:

A distinction is made between "animate demons" and "place-demons". The former have a body, and entail such creatures as lesser and greater Balrogs, Helegrogs ("demons of ice") and Dindair ("silent shadow", demons of shadow). Place-demons (bandúrhoth, "people of the dark prison") are incorporeal and "cannot be physically battled", an example being Caradhras the Cruel.[7]

2007-: The Lord of the Rings Online:

The Regmyl (sing. Rogmul) are fire-demon spirits, called forth by the will of a Balrog.[8]
