(This page has changed, this character has gone through a Voluntary Resubmit that has changed many aspects of the character.)

Daemon is a tall (6'4") orange skinned, green eyed oni with small horns. His hair is teased into a spiky configuration, and dyed a midnight blue.

When dressed on a Shadowrunning  job, he wears a immaculate blue suit with no tie, a studded leather collar around his neck.

Most other times, he dresses in leather pants, a deliberately ripped band t-shirt, and button up above it.


Character spoilers past this point.

  • To learn about his powers and Resonance.
  • To spread his band's fame outside of San Francisco.
  • To become popular enough not to need Shiawase anymore.
  • For Oni Punk to be a relatively good movement, and not just a niche version of Ork punk.
  • To patch things up with his brother and sister not involved with the band.


As an infant, Daemon's family fled Yomi Island, hoping to make their fortunes better in San Francisco. They got to enjoy three or four years of peace until Saito came to San Francisco. Due to some sucess at hiding, Daemon and his family were able to survive (although have never really forgotten the scars of) an occupied San Francisco. Daemon found his love in music, a refuge of angry sounds that his family had stoically expressed that he should attempt to repress.

The other thing he was encouraged to repress was Emerging at 13 as a technomancer. Music and the imagery therein became his way to control his powers, the way he managed to deal with being a technomancer. Three years ago, him and three other oni (one of them his brother Kaito, who is the band's drummer) formed the band Lotus Eater Machine. A year an a half ago, they were discovered by a Shiawase talent scout, and after much disagreement (one that caused the other guitarists to leave the band and ultimately get replaced) and debate, Lotus Eater Machine agreed to sign with Shiawase in an attempt to improve the corp's public image with the metahuman community. This was considered something of a betrayal from his brother and sister not in the band, Himari, who is part of a militant ork rights group in San Francisco; and Aito, who works with Mothers of Metahumans.

While Daemon is well aware taking corporate money to do what he does is "selling out", he does find it amusing that a corporation is continuing to fund anti corporate music just so they can have an olive branch for the metahuman community. He currently lives in a small, corporately owned apartment in South City.

While Daemon doesn't necessarily need Shadowrunning to make money, he does because "it's the best kind of inspiration of punk--sticking it to the man."
