Demon slayers are a specialized sect of monks who have devoted their lives to defeating the forces of evil. They take on this role for many reasons, but one that is shared by most demon slayers is a deep-seated belief in good versus evil. Demon slaying has been practiced since the Middle Ages and continues today! In this blog post, we will explore 10 amazing facts about these brave fighters of darkness!
-In the Middle Ages, there were no demon slayers. The first mention of such a class was in 1859 by Professor Crofton Croker who wrote about “a most singular and interesting race called Demon Slayers” as they were caught up in one of his stories.
-It is not known how many people are currently living that have dedicated their lives to fighting evil forces like demons.. but it must be quite few!
-The term “demon” has been used since ancient times to describe various types of ills or misfortunes; this broad usage continues today with our talk about mental illness (e.g., depression) being referred to as demonic possession, for example. Nowadays, we would say that they are “demonized,” meaning that they have been turned into demons.
-The word “slayer” is an obvious reference to the biblical story of Cain and Abel, in which one brother kills the other; it’s also used today as slang for a murderer or someone who has killed another person. It may seem like more negative connotations than positive ones nowadays! But when there were no demon slayers yet, this was not necessarily so: at first, killing demons could be thought of as a good thing because people believed them to exist.
-Demon slayers can come from any background – their skills are learned rather than inherited – but they all share a strong sense of honor and duty.. some are also “accidental” demon slayers, meaning they were not born with the skills but acquired them during their lifetime.
-Some believe that every person has a hidden talent – for instance, you might paint beautifully or be adept at bowling – and as it turns out, some people have innate abilities to kill demons! For this reason alone we should all respect these individuals because without them our world would be in danger of being overrun by evil beings.
-The word “demon” is often used interchangeably with the words “evil,” “devil,” and even (rarely) Satan himself; however, there are many different types of demons so this term does not always apply to all things demonic. The most well known type
Demon slayer names are an interesting topic that most people do not know much about.
Here is a list of ten amazing facts you didn’t know about demon slayers:

-The word “slayer” derives from the Old English verb slean meaning “to put to death” or “kill violently” and can be traced back as far as 1842 with its earliest use referring to someone who had killed at least one dragon in folklore (usually believed to refer to St George)
-Most demons have two possible spellings – which may seem confusing but makes sense if you think about it – the Latin word “demon” is spelled the same way in both English and the original language.
-Demon slayer names aren’t limited to what we might think of as “traditional” demon slayers – they can be found across a variety of cultures, religions and regions
-The most popular variation on ‘demon’ name in existence today is actually just one spelling (that’s how prevalent it has become throughout history)
-Most myths about demons are not true – even though there are too many stories out there for any person alive to have heard them all, these myths originated from ancient beliefs before humankind had an understanding of science or medicine which lead people to believe that evil spirits were behind disease and illness without understanding that those things could be caused by bacteria, viruses or other biological factors.
-Demon slayer names are often seen as a ‘badge of honour’ – they show the world that someone has committed to fighting against evil and protecting their community from harm

Demon Slayer Names – What’s in a Name
Many people have taken on the moniker of demon slayer and we’ll be looking at some of them, starting with Buffy Summers from the American television series “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”
Buffy Summers was born to Joyce and Hank, who are both dead now. At age 16 she became an orphan when her mother died unexpectedly after being attacked by a vampire while out shopping for Christmas presents (the event is referred to as “The Harvest”). She also has two younger sisters: Dawn, who is eight years old; and Faith Lehane , who was around 15 or 16 when last seen. It’s not clear how much time has passed since then – but it would seem that they are no longer a part of Buffy’s life.

She is constantly fighting against demons – including those from within herself–and slaying them all “with prejudice.” She never expected this battle would take so much time; but it has been three years since her mother died
