Agreed. Also, to have different factions of monsters around can be independent of the specifics of the Blood War.

For what it's worth, I want to add two clarifications to what I said:

I didn't touch the angles of Qlippoth or as-Sharak because I did focus in the cosmogonical perspective from earlier posts (mainly from b-dog), and also due to the complexity of more secondary cases (but equally interesting and relevant to the genre), like demons as rotten psychic remnants of dead gods or definitely exhausted cycles, and demons caused by sorcery and curses.

And I wasn't trying to say that there shouldn't be differences and peculiarities among demons (or devils). Also, concerning different cultures, along with the different names for shared notions or entities, the different imageries and other factors can justify different creatures in fantasy RPGs, even if this is easily abused.
