* SexualExtortion: They're loath to give up the things they obtain, but they have a custom where they will do so--in exchange for a night of sex with a beautiful person. Lea says one example of this was when Freya--of Norse mythology--wanted to get a precious gem back from them. In the standard legends, she merely kissed them to get the gem back, but Lea explained those legends were {{Bowdlerized}} by prudish monks, and in fact the svartalves insisted she have sex with them for the gem. When the svartalves capture Thomas, Lea tells Molly they can get him back if someone has sex with all the elves. Molly declines, but the incubus Thomas is more than happy to fulfill the custom.

* AllPowerfulBystander: Demonreach is unbelievably powerful, to such a degree that when Mab appears to be threatening Harry, Harry orders him to "Take her down below and keep here there" should she follow through. Mab's surprise makes it clear that Demonreach could make due on the request.

** Demonreach as a whole is dark and dangerous, but the entity is certainly not ''evil''. Just surly and antisocial to the extreme. Notably, it finds the presence of the skinwalker and the Black Council agents to be an affront. The spirit of Demonreach acts as a prison, keeping an unspecified, but ''very large'' number of very dangerous beings. To put in perspective how dangerous these things are, there are half a dozen naagloshii (nearly indestructible very powerful demigods that exist to spread pain and suffering. It takes a nuke to kill one) imprisoned among them, and they're held within the minimum security wing. Its every effort is dedicated to keeping those things in their cage. The reason it is so antisocial is that it's trying to drive away unwanted visitors.

* SealedEvilInACan: Demonreach ''is'' the can. The original Merlin constructed a massive multidimensional, multitemporal prison on the island for dozens if not hundreds of dark gods, evil spirits, and demonic entities. The spirit acts as a sentient prison, keeping them in place. It is such a strong prison, Mab is likely unable to escape. However, Harry can release any or all of the prisoners if he so desires. Not that he ever ''would'' so desire, but just the fact that he technically could do it has the potential to really complicate his life if it gets out.

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Unlike the other prisoners, he's lucid and not chanting for blood or attempting to trick Harry into setting them free. He also insists he's "in stasis" rather than imprisoned. So it's unclear why, exactly, he's in Demonreach to begin with.
