    I don't think there exists any myth on half breed of demons and angels. Diablo game took it's own set towards it and called it Nephalem, where a half angel would be called Nephilim. And don't forget, greater demons are fallen angels.

    Although I just found out that offspring of succubus/incubus are called campion. When I read more and more about it, I don't think it's possible for angels and demons to reproduce :eek:

    Well I guess you'll have to come up with your own name for it then :D

    Depending how the offspring would be, like always suffering because demons can't withstand light? Like lumenpathes? Light suffer in Latin

    Well seeing as they're the offspring of an angel and demon, how about either the tainted, abominations, or just plain hybrids? Though I really do like the name you came up with

    Do they not define Dante and Vergil in DMC?
    (just thinking out loud here though, correct me if I'm wrong those characters were half angel/half demonic..no? )

    I checked it for you.
    Apparently Dante is referred to as "Nephilim" which would be part Angel/part Demon.
    Yet again, the genre's called fantasy. Have fun with it :)

    Hey I really enjoyed your post about [ Angel's & Demon's]. Recently I have been hearing about a new book called Kinzurdia. Do you know if its a good book or if there is a post on here about it? I also know they where talking about Angel , Demon Undead with a Lich in the mix.

    Interesting. Biblically, Nephilim were half-human, half-angel, but the beauty about fantasy authors is that they can always take liberty. So, you might want to use that term and just make sure you define it. Or, you could just make up your own term that does the job. Additionally, I might suggest that you consider something like "tainted" or "abomination" as a slang term that "pure-breds" use to insult the hybrids.

    why not make your own name/word/class? be unique! It could catch on.
    Don't be mainstream. Be new, while keeping legacy fantasy in check. :cool:

    ok so you are trying to remain true to greek mythology then?
    Then Nephilin is your best bet even though it isnt technically true..

    or call them 'Julie' My EX. I'd laugh myself to death.

    have you looked at asian mythology? I seem to recall japanese have a demon/god called a shinigami. That can do both good and bad. Hmm or maybe look at Indian mythology?

    I believe that "thinking out of the box" will be crucial here. There's alot going on about angels and demons lately, or am I the only one seeing that? (not to speak about the vampires, werewolves and whatsoever). Half angel/half demon seems interesting however :) I bet the struggle within his/her mind is real.

    Or at least Tiefling is as close as you're going to get to it without coming up with your own name. I personally think that Death Angel sounded good.
