Demon Fist is the story of Rory Featherwind, a young man out to shake up the world, and Shaise, Crag and Dither, the three demons who live in his arm.Pandora's Box has been opened a second time, destroying most of the world and releasing demons and angels into what remained. 3,000 years later, a new society has arisen, where demons and angels live alongside humans, and a totalitarian government controls the world through fear and faith.A duel between four demons has sealed three of them and part of the fourth in young Rory's body and the remnants in his lost friend Kai's. The Church wants to capture Rory at all costs, because he is the key to giving humans demonic powers. Rory and his three friends want to find Kai, and if the Church gets in their way, they'll feel the power of the Demon Fist!The comic can be found here. It updates at least once a week.
Rory: Riddle sends us to some pretty crappy places sometimes...no pun intended.
Agony Beam/I'm Having Soul Pains: Duprant owns a special angel halo that can do this to demons (and, by extension, Rory as well) by emitting a flood of angelic energy. Unfortunately for Duprant, when the all-natural Strobe shows up he's completely unaffected.
Jaws: Your toy there reminds me of the stove my buddy built for me. He just went on and on about the possible dangers. It was annoying. I just wanted to use the damn stove, but no, he kept drilling into my head the dangers of cooking with gas...
Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Jacob can teleport, but doing so damages his body. Using the power to escape with the Hookshot was what cost him his hand.
Dark Is Not Evil/Light Is Not Good: Quite a few demons, like SC&D or Jaws, are heroic characters while some angels, like Phihat, are downright sickening. However, there are also plenty of evil demons and (presumably) good angels.
Red Oni, Blue Oni: Dither's blue to all three of the others' (but especially Shaise's) red.
Rubber Man: Phihat can puff up body parts that are about to be hit, resulting in wounds that become tiny when he goes back to normal, by moving his body mass around. According to him, he got this power by eating his halo.
Too Dumb to Live: Rosenquist has devoted 19 years of his life and enough money to build a floating fortress that freaking splits the sea looking for Pandora's Spear, and then Alvin tries to confiscate it out from under his nose before he'd even touched it. How did he think Rosenquist would react?
The Demon Fist almost never kills humans or peaceful demons, even (especially!) Mooks.
Neither does the Hookshot crew. This pays off for them later.
Duncan: Your crew fought off all my men without killing any of them. Criminals would not have wasted the effort not to kill their attackers. I can't in good conscience take you all in simply for defending yourselves.
Underwater Ruins: Where they find Pandora's Spear. Although Rosenquist's fortress got rid of the "underwater" part with a giant waterproof forcefield.
Zero-Approval Gambit: Rory makes sure Mayor Duprant stays down, and prevents the Church from punishing the town for rebellion, by having the townspeople say that Duprant and the vile Demon Fist were actually working together to overthrow the Church.
