The term daemon originates from Greek mythology in reference to benevolent spirits or the different states of the human condition. A prime example of this would be Eros the god of love who was believed to be a benevolent daemon, Daemon's weren't viewed in a negative context until Plato more acutely defined them as guides to human beings, while they were still viewed in a positive light during that time period they were soon also seen as responsible for man's less then divine aspects. E.g. fear and war. Two examples of these "demonic" daemons would be Phobos and Deimos; sons of Ares. These could be viewed as two of the first demons and could also be held responsible for the term inner demons. This term referring to the lesser aspects of man like fear and Violence.
