How to Effectively Kill a Demon – Dragomeir Series Novels

styx

 

In Greek mythology, the River Styx formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld.  The word itself meant “hate” and “detestation.”

In the Dragomeir Series– the River Styx is an important part of the story – the boundary between Earth and The Provinces of Hell.  The Demons of The Pronvices, lead by the Dark Lord, are trapped on one side and are desperately attempting to cross over to Earth.

There’s only one problem with that.   Demons have ichor running through their veins rather than blood, making the dark, acidic water of The River Styx toxic to them.  Ichor contains a property called Mercury which was purposely placed there to effectively strand the demons in the accursed land.  They are prisoners for all time for the crimes they have committed against humanity.

When a Human bleeds, the blood comes out red due to the oxygen in the atmosphere.  However, when Demons lose ichor, the color is green due to the Mercury coming into contact with ozone.  Ozone is the majority of the gas in our atmosphere.  It causes us to perceive color the way we do.  The Mercury in ichor reacts badly with the water in the River Styx causing severe burns and death.  A single drop of its water will sizzle like cooking meat and leave a nasty looking welt that can take days to heal.  Even the fumes from the water cause a bad reaction in Demons, so they dare not get too close.  As a result, most demons are terrified of the variant forms of water.
