Seems to me that in Glorantha a 'demon' can be any being you disapprove o= f,
not necessarily from an otherworld. In the RQ3 'Strangers in Prax' there= 's
a speech the wizard Arlaten gives if you offer him a Troll recruit to his=

guards, in which he refers to it as a 'Krjalk night demon'.

It's like the question somebody once asked, are there angels in Glorantha= ? =

Well, yes, an angel is someone sent by a god, possibly including the play= er
characters.

Lots of people in Sartar summon otherworld beings with intent to do harm.=  =

These don't have to be chaotic, some of the most 'demon-like' in conventional terms might be spirits of darkness summoned by followers of Zorak Zoran.
