In fact if I remembeer well the addition of Hell/Satan is a very lately addition to the christian beliefs.
Added to include a common "enemy" to put the blame of bad behavior on and associate the "bad" people.
In original Christian religion (Bible) there is no room for a fallen Angel and Satan doesn't exist ... Neither do demons.

Yes, but my point was that in mainstream Christian usage 'demons' never -originate- in the underworld.
