Exactly what is meant by the term "demon" we do not know for sure, as the lore consists almost exclusively of rumour and conjecture. Perhaps the name refers to a kind of Type 2; certainly my father alway belived the name was synonymous with the Old Ones. However, my research has largely ruled out this theory. I believe "demon" refers to a type of monster we have not yet classified. What little evidence we hace suggests it could be a shape shifter, capable of taking human or animal form at will, and in possession of abilities usually associated with Type 1s; invisibility, exceptional strength, and the power to read human minds. I'm sure you find all of this hard to believe. However, all I can do is report the intelligence that I have gathered in my time as Permanent Secretary. My full report will form part of the primary records left with the Home Office at handover on Friday.
I sincerely hope that someone will read those reports, Alistair. Before it's too late.
