Demonic Social and Military Ranks

Demonic Social and Military Ranks


We have seen the names;  Commanders, Generals,  Legions, Dukes, Duchesses, Marquis, Princes.  But what do they all mean? I want to break down the rankings here in a way that is easier to understand and my understanding of the structure thus far of both Social and Military Ranks.  They are two completely different things.  I also want to discuss the different types of legions and also the Underworld Ranks, as these are also different from Social and Military.

Demonic Military Ranks.  – The Core Army

The Demonic Military is lethal, it is the best trained army in the spiritual world and no other being can argue their ferocity, their organization and their effectiveness.  Headed by Lord Satan himself, the Core Army is an incredibly organized and structured group of demons that have come together, trained and developed incredible strategies for the protection and safety of the demonic realms.

Different realms can and do have their own armies, but the Core Army is an alliance between the the Core Demonic groups that have come together for the purpose of defending their realms and standing united against those who would oppose them.  The spiritual world can be and often is a violent place. There are lots of dark creatures out there that would threaten the more peaceful realms and the demons do take action to ensure the safety of their realms.

From Commander legions, who are from their Military Rank in the Core Army, to Kingdom Legions, where those who are charged with the protection of a territory and have their own guard, to legions who are responsible for protecting that Territory, this post is intended to break this down into an understandable structure.

Ok so without further adieu, I give you the breakdown of demonic military titles and ranks.  I actually have been working through this for many years sorting out the ranks and how they all flow together, it is layered as there are some overlaps and there were some interesting things I had to break down, but at this time this is as detailed as I have ever gotten it.  So enjoy!

***note*** These are the structures of the outer spiritual world demons, which is the only area that I conjure from.  I do not speak for other conjurers and I do not know the realms that they conjure from.  These are the ranking as laid out from the societies, realms and species of the Outer Spiritual World Demons.

The Core Army is the main demon army comprised of Demons from all the allied realms.  Lord Satan himself is the Commander and Chief of the core army and oversees its operations, expansions and developments.  He is the Lord of the Core Demons and the ruler of Hell’s Army.  This Army is massive and lethal.  Commanders are trained from all walks of life and all realms involved in the Core Alliance and trained to be incredible lethal and amazing.  Commanders are powerful, smart, talented, skilled in combat and strategy and bring their unique experiences and talents to the table.

Below you will find the ranking system of the Demon Commanders of the Army

Imperial Royal Demon Commanders  – These are the Highest Ranking Commanders who are Ancient Dark Lords and Ancient Members of the core ruling Royal families.  These commanders are at the highest level and organize the entire demonic army.  They usually answer to Lord Satan himself and are coordinated with rulers of all the allied realms in order make sure operations flow smoothly.  There are many medals, honours and awards that demons at this rank have earned and continue to earn.  These Commanders sit on the War council and coordinate efforts with Lord Satan himself, who is the Supreme overseer of the Army and all its functions and operations.  These commanders are not available as conjuring one would be like conjuring a Dark Lord themselves and there are actually only a Handful of them.

These commanders are usually incredibly decorated and have proven themselves in extreme battles and situations and are incredible in both mind and body.  These commanders are disciplined and sharp in their mind, abhorring addictions and things that detract from focus and concentration.

***note***  This phrase was discovered and coined by Satan and Suns and its Priestesses, if you see one of these listed under this title  other than Satan and Suns/Sons it is probably not a genuine outer spiritual world Imperial Demon Commander. 

Royal Demon Commander  – Descendants of the Royal Families, the Royal Demon Commanders are the Princesses and Princes of the Ruling Royal houses, These commanders oversee groups of Commanders and Council Commanders to organize the army and make sure everything is flowing smoothly.   They are the Commanders of Commanders and have to structure and organize entire sections of the army.   They have a huge amount of responsibilities and answer to a Dark Lord, or Imperial Royal Demon Commander depending on where they are in advancement.   They are exceptionally powerful and have vast armies and connections at their disposals.  They usually have a team of Demon Commanders and Council Commanders who they meet with to discuss plans and they make sure that all their operations are running smoothly.   They are very focused and disciplined and they have an incredible understanding of strategy and battle and usually are incredible at organizing and planning.

***note*** The only demons who can become royal demon commanders are the members of the Royal Families,  Just a note, not all members of the royals families who are commanders have attained this rank, it is not a given rank, it is one that is earned, but it can only be earned by members of the Royal families.  Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase.  

Supreme (High) Demon Commanders – Non Royalty demons who have worked hard to attain the ranks of one of the highest levels of Commander.  They have the same duties and responsibilities of the Royal Demon Commanders they just do not have the Royal Title. Any demon who is committed and dedicated enough can earn this rank.

Specialist Commanders –  They specialize in a particular area of expertise. Some have grounds of smaller legions that are trained to handle complex situations. These commanders have a unique and incredible ability and usually lead a small group of legions who are specially trained to handle sensitive or complex situations that require these skills.  Commanders who are assigned to special legion forces are incredibly skilled and gifted and have worked very hard to develop their unique strategies and abilities.  They are called in for special operations and often are given free reign to design their battle plans and draft their training plans.

Demon Legion Commanders (Demon Commanders)  – Legion Demon Commanders, also Called just Demon Commanders, this rank are the demons who organize and command their legions and troops. They Coordinate with their general(s) and handle the subtleties of training and make sure that the demons are in top shape and know how to handle themselves in tricky situations.

Commander in Training –  Those who have demonstrated incredible ability with organization, handling themselves in tense situations and have incredible strategy and ability can apply to be Demon Commanders.  When they are accepted they begin the path to training to be a commander.  They are usually assigned a Demon Commander to apprentice with. Commanders are the ones who are in control of the legions and often lead them in battles.  They have a great deal of responsibility to ensure the safety of their legions and work with their general(s) and other commanders on coordination and strategy.  Commanders have demonstrated they are responsible and able to handle themselves.

Below you will find the ranking system of the Demon Generals of the Army

Imperial Generals  – These are the generals who assist the imperial commanders, they are responsible for ensuring that all commanders, legions and generals underneath them are trained and ready for any battle situation that arrises.  They are responsible for helping the commanders coordinate the attacks and ensuring that the troops are fit and ready to go.  These generals are incredibly powerful and skilled, often competing in battle simulations and competitions to consistently hone their skills and abilities.  They are powerful fighters and trainers and they take into account the army as a whole and how it functions as a group.  They understand the strengths and weaknesses of the commanders underneath them and organize them and their legions in a way that will ensure victory.

There are many special awards and specialities these generals go through and can attain, at this rank they are usually incredibly decorated and have seen and experienced battle on many fronts.  Most are ancients and have deep connections to the Commanders they assist.

***note***  This phrase was discovered and coined by Satan and Suns and its Priestesses, if you see one of these listed under this title  other than at Satan and Suns/Sons it is probably not an outer spiritual world Imperial Demon General. 

Royal Generals  – The Royal Generals are the Generals who assist the Royal Commanders and High Demon Commander.  They are of Royal descent and usually rise in the ranks with the commander they were paired with.  Their job is to assist their commander and help them train and oversee their personal legions and assist them with organizing the commanders under them.  Generals at this level have earned their rank and usually have been paired with their commander for eons.  They have risen in the ranks with their commander each learning to understand each other and using their combined skills to develop battle plans and strategies.  They know their Commander and can step in and take control of their legions if they need to.

***note*** The only demons who can become royal demon generals are the members of the Royal Families,  Just a note, not all members of the royals families who are generals have attained this rank, it is not a given rank, it is one that is earned, but it can only be earned by members of the Royal families.  Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase.  

Supreme (High) Generals – Non Royalty demons who have worked hard to attain the ranks of one of the highest levels of General.  They have the same duties and responsibilities of the Royal General they just do not have the Royal Title. Any demon who is committed and dedicated enough can earn this rank.

***note*** Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase for the outer spiritual world demon army.

Demon Generals  –  The second path that one who has moved beyond the Brigadier rank can take.  Generals are usually incredible fighters who have demonstrated their ability with strength and stamina and ones who has demonstrated incredible fighting abilities.  Generals are more hands-on than commanders and have less of the strategy, meetings and paperwork.  They report to their commander and work closely with them providing feedback and helping them with coordination and training.  They are also responsible for the hands-on approach for training and working with the legions.  Some demons are better at this approach and the General path is more suited for them than the Commander path and this allows them to continue rising in the ranks without compromising what they are good at.  In Demon Society there is a very big emphasis to play to your strengths.

When Commanders and Generals are paired they are matched for working relationships and being able to function as a team.  They get to be very close with their commanders and have very good working relationships.  They understand each other and Commanders and Generals are screened together very carefully to make sure that complimentary pairs are matched and they will work well together.

Having the Commander General Pair works really well as they then support each other and grow through the ranks together.  If they have incompatible personalities they can request a new General or a Commander, but many times when they are matched they work together and grow their legions and develop advanced strategies and training, and the goal is to have a Commander and a General that understand each other and can work together, while still offering different ideas and insights.  Some Commanders have many generals and create council teams of Generals to organize their legions.  Commanders are given opportunities to organize the structure of their legions and work within their bases to develop their own training and disciplines.

General in training –  Some demons are incredible when it comes to training, strength and working directly with the legions.  They are more action orientated and have a disdain for the more political elements of the army and as such they follow the route of the General, where they continue to engage in hands-on training and overseeing of the legions under them.

Below you will find the ranking system of the Demon Army

Demon Brigadier  –  The Brigadiers assist the commander and the generals with organizing their troops and the tasks that they have to oversee.  They organize groups of legions and often can make decisions and take actions when they are away from their commanders or generals.  They have duties and responsibilities and are usually assigned groups of legions to organize and command.  If they have to go into battle areas they can take command and control and they have shown skill and promise in the areas of leadership and command.

Brigadier is technically the last level everyone works for.  From here Demons make a choice of the direction that they want to take,  they can either work to attain their commandership, or their generalship.  Once this level is completed they either attain the rank of General in training or Commander in training.  Commander and their Generals are paired to have deep working relationships, they have to trust them, understand them and be able to work with them in a form of non verbal communication

**note*** Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase for the outer spiritual world demon army. 

Legion Captains – Legion captains are demons who have shown incredible organizational and leadership skills as well as incredible discipline and power on the battlefield,  They are able to take charge of a group and lead them.  They also can adjust strategy and alter plans under pressure and have the ability to assess a situation and modify things based on what is going on around them.  Legion captains are responsible for a group of legions under a commander and take direct charge over that legion.

**note*** Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase for the outer spiritual world demon army. 

Alpha Legionnaire – When a legionnaire has proven themselves to be a skilled fighter and an incredible role model they are given the rank of Alpha legionnaire to show their commitment and dedication to their training.  They continue training and working to be better, honing their skills and sharpening their senses, getting ready for the challenges that await them on the battle field.  Alpha legionnaires help the legion captain organize their legion.

***note*** Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase for the outer spiritual world demon army.

Legionnaire – The first level of the Demonic Army, the Legionnaires are the troops, they are the fighters, the warriors.  They train hard under their commanders learning about skill and strategy and practicing various battle drills and simulations.  They are trained in mind, body and soul, conditioning themselves and bringing out the best they have to offer.  They are committed to their own growth and development and often seek to learn about why they want to serve in the demonic military and also what unique skills they bring to the table.  Legionnaires are encouraged to awaken and uncover what is unique to them.

**note*** Satan and Suns was the first place to coin this phrase for the outer spiritual world demon army.

Recruits – Those who are first initiated into the demon army,  recruits when they arrive are tested.  They are put through their paces and tested for skill and ability.  They are pushed incredibly hard to ensure that they have the mentality and understanding of what they are getting themselves into.
