Casters - those with knowledge of all planes who have the ability to tap into the powers and abilities of other planes.  They are often called on to conceal the true forms of demons.

Clans - are groupings of demons based on their gifting and ability to excel with certain assignments.  Each clan I considered a different rank or level.  And ranks/levels exist within the actual clans.  They all specialize in ensnaring and tethering humans to the Unknowns by one means or another.

Cloak - It is a humanlike resemblance or covering provided by a caster to hide a demons true form and is mostly necessary to allow infiltration into humanity to carry out orders or assignment.

Garro - Demon Under lord of one of the destruction clans.  He was trained as a newling with Kao and Mirena.  He is a sufficient warrior but was only granted his status because his true form revealed his claiming.  Befittingly his true form reflects beasts of rage.
