Most fantasy stories are written with some sort of assumption that calling something evil makes it evil. It is rare to find any descriptions of what actually makes many so-called evil creatures 'evil'. Why are orcs evil? Because they act a lot like the Vikings on land? Why was Sauron evil? He was the least racist character in the series! This being said, I'm looking at a world controlled by daemons. These daemons aren't evil simply because they are daemons; they are evil because they are evil in the most horrendous religious sense of the word. They force humans to war for their entertainment, they spread diseases to watch human suffering, they torture innocent people only for their own sick pleasure. All of these things fall into evil, but I'm looking at making it even a few steps worse; rape (both men and women), eating children and babies and using live infants for sick games. This is a very, very dark fantasy setting, but I'm wondering if maybe this kind of description of evil goes too far?
