A Daeva. It translates to "demon of darkness" -- Zoroastrian demons, and they're savage, animalistic, nasty attitudes -- kinda like demonic pit bulls. These daevas, they have to be summoned. Conjured. These suckers tend to bite the hand that feeds them... and the arm and the torsos.

A Daeva is an ancient demonic creature of shadow, a special type of demon, that can be summoned by other demons. Similar to hellhounds and unlike most demons, these demons do not need a host to attack humans.

BackgroundEdit

Altar

Meg's altar which she used to summon the daevas.

Little is known about this type of demon. Like hellhounds, daevas are beings used by demons as invisible killers. While they are invisible, daevas appear as humanoid shadows. They are known to turn on those who controlled them once that control is lost. Meg summons the daevas using a black altar. Caleb tells Dean Winchester that the Zoroastrian symbol, shaped like a Z with a circle in the middle, is a sigil for a daeva and is ancient magic, possibly ranging from two thousand years before Jesus Christ.

Daevas

The daevas attacking Meg.

Meg has some control over the daevas, but when her black altar is destroyed, the daevas seem to turn on her and pull her through a window, causing her to fall several stories. However, this was likely all an act, as Meg revealed a pendant with the daeva sigil that allowed her to control them a very short time later. After her apparent defeat lured John Winchester out of hiding, she used the daevas to maul all three Winchesters until Sam Winchester repels them using a flare gun, as "shadow demons" cannot manifest in a room filled with light.
