Re: two-part comment 'cause it's getting hella long

>>I was initially trying to map the daemonic races to the 7 Deadly Sins, but didn't get much farther than lust = leccubi and pride = sphinxes. <<

You might try looking over descriptions of demons and their correspondences. Unfortunately the tightest are one-to-one, like patron saints more than classes. But there are some classes. Shedu are storm-demons. Djinni are fire. Se'irim are animalistic. Mazikin are violent. Nephilim are hybrids between demons and humans. And so forth.

>>It would be interesting to use a non-Western concept like the Eightfold Path or something, though.<<

That would certainly give the setting a different flavor.
