A daemon, also referred to as hellkin, is the primary inhabitant of Hell. In the world of Bas-Lag daemons can be summoned by karcists, although they have a reputation for unreliability and any who summon them are regarded with suspicion.

Events of Iron Council[]

Although true daemons do not appear during the events of Iron Council, it is mentioned that Weather Wrightby, owner of the Transcontinental Railroad Trust, enlisted the aid of daemons to help him prepare ground for railroad construction. The use of daemons is alleged to have necessitated that strange, fatal "accidents" befall several workers, and their presence left wakes of tremendous heat and land on either side of the rail road barren and lifeless.
