Hmm. I don't see any statement as clear as that in my copy. The are two=

types of 'demon' listed in the AR index, but the entry on p. 249 never us= es
the word. The 'Snatching Demon' on page 239 does indeed live in the 'Thi= rd
Hell'.

The problem with using words like 'infernal' and 'angelic host' is that we're used to thinking of them in terms of Christian cosmology. The Certamus description describes them as having an 'appropriately Dara Happ= an
sense of morality and justice' and says that 'Some Dara Happan priests summon them to smite their traditional enemies, such as storm barbarians ...'. That sounds to me as though Sartarites might consider them as more=

like demons than angels.
