Meta demons are creatures, entities and beings that exist behind the Veil. Some people believe these are demons from Hell, but that’s not the case. Meta demons have nothing to do with the Devil or Archangels.
What are meta demons?
Meta demons are the native inhabitants of the world beyond the Veil (the barrier between the human world and the ghost world). These entities were never human and you shouldn’t expect them to act like us. In most cases, they have a horrible appearance, like a fly/human hybrid, but some look like regular humans until provoked.
Meta demons can cross the Veil at verges and dead spots, but they don’t use ghost portals. They also don’t have anchors like ghosts, so they are free to roam our world.
How can you tell if you found a meta demon?
First off, if you find something monstrous AND it doesn’t align to cryptids, then it could be a meta demon. In general, they don’t generate changes in EMF or temperature, so your ghost hunting equipment isn’t effective. You’ll also find most protection techniques against Abrahamic (Judaism, Islamic and Christian) demons fail. After all, they have nothing to do with Heaven and Hell.
Meta demons tend to be ravenous. They won’t stop eating and never gain weight. They’ll also speak in a unique style or you use strange word choices. They also won’t understand technology (like using a TV remote control or how to drive a car), what clothes to wear by occasion, nor show empathy to tragic news. Your pets will probably freak out in their presence.
Then again, the suspected meta demon could really be a weirdo (albeit human) psychopath. Don’t jump to conclusions and hurt a regular person.
How do you clear meta demons?
If you hurt it badly, it will try to go back beyond the Veil. They tend to be fragile, much like people. You should be able to burn, cut or shoot them because they lose most of their defenses in our world.
You can also trick it to go back. To do that, you would need to understand why it came to our world and what it wants. In some cases, it’s just sightseeing and will go back on its own.
Herbs and stones won’t help protect you. Magic could work because it uses universal energies. If needed, team up with a Wiccan, Druid or other pagan gifted with magical abilities.
Now, if the meta demon is huge, scaly, tentacles and other creepy parts, get the hell out of there. You’ll probably lose the fight.
