Issues with this category Edit

I have issues with the canonicality (is that a word?) of this category. None of the games or media ever use the term, as far as I can remember. The closest description used is "man-made" to describe the Cutlass, Basilisk, and Gladius demon, and some characters are treated as if they've truly become demons, such as Sanctus and Arkham. I don't think it's a good idea to shove characters into this category just because they don't fall into the black-or-white categories of demon-or-human. -- Anobi (talk) 00:51, April 25, 2013 (UTC)

The characters in this category are humans or other constructs that were transformed into demons, and are thus not natural-born demons. The plot indicates a separation between these and "true demons", though yes, it never uses this exact term. If this term is truly objectionable, it's fine to just put "demon", so long as we don't go back to "Ascended human", "human with demonic power", etc.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 04:44, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't like all the little nuanced descriptions, either, but my thing is, there's never a distinction made between "real" demons and others. I.E. Arkham became a demon by sacrificing his wife, and Sanctus and Credo became demons, with Nero even calling them such--"All you've become is a demon," and "You are the demon, not me!" respectively. True, my examples made themselves that way, but none of the characters in-game make any kind of distinction between the formerly human demons and the true demons. With Lucia, I could understand calling her something like "created demon," "man-made demon," or "artificial demon" since Arius says he created her, but then we run the risk of micro-categorizing everyone again. We can't win, can we? Tonguesmiley -- Anobi (talk) 02:18, April 30, 2013 (UTC)
Just demon is fine then.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 03:31, May 1, 2013 (UTC)
