There seems to be a lot of queries coming from you guys for me to begin a list of female demon names and what they do. So I’ve decided to begin compiling one. As I gain more information on them they will be added to the demon index we carry here if they’re not already there. This list of female demon names will not currently be compiled by culture/region. For now, we’ll keep them together here until we have a good and viable list.
