"It's said that All Hallows' Eve is one of the nights when the veil between the worlds is thin - and whether you believe in such things or not, those roaming spirits probably believe in you, or at least acknowledge your existence, considering that it used to be their own. Even the air feels different on Halloween, autumn-crisp and bright."

The words dæmon and daimôn are Latinized spellings of the Greek “δαίμων”, a reference to the daemons of ancient Greek religion and mythology, as well as later Hellenistic religion and philosophy.

Above: A painting (Herbert James Draper,1909) of Lamia, the queen of Libya who became a daemon according to Greek mythology.
