Most Genertelans would say that demons come from Hell, which is the definition adopted by Anaxial's Roster p237.

>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'.

Since the Trolls have their origins in Hell, Arlaten is correct.

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

Yes. Angels (Certamus AR p192) are denizens of the Sky World.
