It doesn't help that some people use "devil" and "daemon"
interchangeably.  Daemons were originally morally neutral entities; the
Devil (or devils in generally) have been mostly evil creatures
throughout history.  Of course, Judeo-Christian tradition turned daemons
into fundamentally evil creatures (instead of just metaphysical
helpers), too.
