"Look... I'm sorry, guys. It's just that a lot of stuff has been going on lately, and it's really taking its toll on me."
Corey Riffin, Of Demons and Angels

The Demon Spawns Series is a series of Grojband fanfics written by Stinkfly3 and M.R.I.sanity3. It tells the story of what's really going on with the Riffin family.

Corey and Trina seem like any ordinary siblings... Except that they aren't. They are both the children of Satan. Upon their father's request, the demon hybrids live on the surface world with their human mother Amethyst. They try their best to blend in with the people of Peaceville, although Corey is more successful at it than Trina.

  • Disabled Love Interest: Corey is this to Laney.
  • Disabled Means Helpless: Corey has yet to grow out of the monster cat stage even though he's five years old. It's the reason why Carrie and her friends make fun of him.
  • Kids Are Cruel: Carrie and her friends are the meanest kids in Corey's grade. No wonder they become rivals in the show!
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Laney originally has these prior to becoming Corey's friend.
  • Prequel
  • Shrinking Violet: Laney

    Power Swap 
  • Continuity Nod: The story begins with Kin accidentally erasing lemonade from history, which was shown as a flashback in the show.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip: A unique take on it. Instead of switching bodies, Corey and Trina switch their demon powers.
  • Heroic BSoD: Corey gets one when he learns he was originally going to die shortly after he was born all because he was never as ferocious as Trina.
  • Holy Burns Evil: Apparently Corey made Trina drink holy water (although it's called "special water" in the story) as an April Fool's joke. She lost all of her powers for the day because of it.

    Of Demons and Angels

  • One-Winged Angel: Trina and Corey do this to protect their friends from rogue demons. Trina is happy to get rid of her disguise. Corey? Not so much.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Trina delivers one to Laney after she broke Corey's heart and made him unleash his full power.
