From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      n 1: one of the evil spirits of traditional Jewish and Christian
           belief [syn: devil, fiend, demon, daimon]
      2: a person who is part mortal and part god [syn: demigod]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    the Greek form, rendered "devil" in the Authorized Version of
    the New Testament. Daemons are spoken of as spiritual beings
    (Matt. 8:16; 10:1; 12:43-45) at enmity with God, and as having a
    certain power over man (James 2:19; Rev. 16:14). They recognize
    our Lord as the Son of God (Matt. 8:20; Luke 4:41). They belong
    to the number of those angels that "kept not their first
    estate," "unclean spirits," "fallen angels," the angels of the
    devil (Matt. 25:41; Rev. 12:7-9). They are the "principalities
    and powers" against which we must "wrestle" (Eph. 6:12).
