A Demon is a notable and popular large surface predator that appears throughout the Metro universe. One of the only known flying mutants in post-apocalyptic Moscow, they are top of their food chain, and deadly to both humans and mutants alike.
A Demon can be described as having a knobbly spine, a short tail and three pairs of limbs: two prehensile arms, two legs and two large wings. They also have a long head with a blunt snout, consisting of a bat-like nose, eyes with vertical cat-like slit pupils set far apart on the head, and a large mouth with 4 canines and several secondary teeth. The backs of Demons are covered in sparse, short black fur and there are folds of skin on the base of the neck.
Their wings are attached to their body with massively muscled arm-like limbs that are almost twice the diameter of their thigh muscles. This explains how Demons can fly, despite a their massive size. A Demon's wings are, in fact, so powerful that they can hover in the air for significant periods of time.
