A small look into how the Demon is viewed in the world of Remnant
Like in any and all worlds, there are many stories and myths in the world of Remnant. The majority of them have no truth, but if you search through all the false rumors, made up stories, and events blown way out of proportion, you can find some truth. One such example of this would be the myth of The Demon.
A hooded man in all black that vanishes just as fast as he appears. He appears all over the world when there are those in need. Fighting off grimm when no huntsman are around, leaving large quantities of food in starving villages when harvest aren't bringing in enough, protecting large expeditions from grimm or bandits, and even stopping small time robberies.
Now the existence of the Demon is a fairly big topic of debate in modern Remnant, but the majority of the world does indeed think that the stories can't be entirely true. A big reason for the disbelief is that the stories of the Demon have been told for as far back as stories in Remnant go. The myth has popped up many times in history and they would all be more or less the same. There was a life-threatening issue and then a man in all black wearing a hood showed up, solving it with ease before disappearing without a trace. It was always said that he was an invincible and merciless killer that could cut through crowds of people all by himself.
Multiple theories about him were spread and none were ever really close to the truth. The reason being that they all assumed that their knowledge of what was possible was all that could be possible. They held the myth to their own standards and made excuses for what he accomplished, so that they could continue their innocent lives not knowing.
