The Daemon is a unique enemy encountered exclusively in the Infinite Forest of Mercury. They exist as passage keepers, locking the doors of each level of the Forest until killed. They are named after the computing term.
It is evident that a Daemon will spawn once the door of the next area being opened is red instead of the usual white. They can appear as any class of any race, always being a Major enemy. Sometimes, multiple Daemons will spawn. A message will appear stating that the "Forest Pathway Cleared" after killing the Daemon/s, allowing the player to open the gate to the next area.
