Acid Demons, sometimes known as Blade Demons, were a Demon variant encountered by Raziel as an enemy in the era following Blood Omen and Early History eras in Soul Reaver 2.

ProfileEdit

Acid demons were green skinned, hunchbacked Demons with muscular bodies. They were shorter than other demons and possessed bladed arms that they used as offensive weapons[Soul Reaver 2].

Acid demons were formidable as close-range opponents, utilizing a range of powerful chops and a devastating Double Chop attack, while at long ranges they expelled a powerful stream of acid. Acid demons were proficient at blocking attacks and defensive manoeuvres but were vulnerable to sidestepping counters and mixed combinations and low strikes[Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)].[1] Like all the demons Raziel fought in Soul Reaver 2, Acid demons could follow him into the spectral realm and could also create combat barriers to prevent Raziel from escaping[Soul Reaver 2 manual][Soul Reaver 2 strategy guide (Prima)].[1]

Raziel first encountered Acid demons in the Demon-infested Sarafan Stronghold shortly after he emerged from its Time-streaming chamber in the Era following Blood Omen. They would frequently be encountered throughout that era, particularly in the Swamp, Subterranean Pillars chambers and Mountains[Soul Reaver 2]. When Raziel continued his quest into Nosgoth's early history, Acid demons were among the Demon enemies that appeared (apparently 'transported' from the Post-Blood Omen era) and confronted Raziel as he attempted to return to the Sarafan Stronghold; again they confronted him in the Mountains and Subterranean Pillars Chambers[Soul Reaver 2].

NotesEdit

  • Many demons variants in Soul Reaver 2 share similarities with their Blood Omen counterparts; Acid demons notably have a similar color and similar toxic attack to the Ogres seen in Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain[Blood Omen]; though it is unclear if the Soul Reaver 2 demons were intended as re-interpretations of Blood Omen's demons or simply different demon races. Acid Demons also share a similar attack to the green Lesser demons of Blood Omen 2 and have blade arms like the Hylden warriors and Shield guardian of Blood Omen 2[Blood Omen 2].
  • Acid demons are the only Demon variant in Soul Reaver 2 that does not openly taunt Raziel upon their appearance in Nosgoth's early history[Soul Reaver 2].
  • Acid demons, like other demon enemies, are presumably native to the Demon Realm and affiliated with the Hylden.
