daemons

Encyclopedia

  • In a Unix environment, the parent process of a daemon is often (but not always) the init process (PID=1). Processes usually become daemons by forking a child process and then having their parent process immediately exit, thus causing init to adopt the child process. — “Daemon (computer software) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • A dæmon is a manifestation of a person's soul in the Philip Pullman trilogy His Dark Materials. Dæmons have human intelligence, are capable of human speech—regardless of the form they take—and usually behave in all respects as though they are independent of their humans. — “Dæmon (His Dark Materials) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • Daemons in the Warhammer Fantasy world hail from the dread Hell-like region called the "Realm of Chaos" (part of Chaos Wastes), which has giant breaches into the material plane at both poles of the world. They are used in both Warhammer and Warhammer 40000. — “Daemon (Warhammer) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org

Quotations

  • My magic arts will now be of no use to you: In future you can only hope for supernatural aid by invoking the Daemons yourself, and accepting the conditions of their service. — “The Monk” by Matthew Lewis
  • As to an alliance with evil geniuses, the power and the malice of daemons have been a thousand times exemplified in human beings. — “Wieland” by Charles Brockden Brown
