Demon's Souls OBD
Let strength be granted so the world might be mended.

Background Information

The original game in the Souls series

King Allant the 12th, by channelling the power of souls,
brought unprecedented prosperity to his northern kingdom of Boletaria
That is, until the colorless Deep Fog swept across the land.
Boletaria was cut off from the outside world,
and those who dared penetrate the Deep Fog never returned.

But Vallarfax of the royal Twin Fangs
broke free from the fog and told the world of Boletaria's plight.
That the Old King Allant had aroused the Old One
the great beast below the Nexus, from its eternal slumber,
And that a colorless fog had swept in unleashing terrible Demons.

The Demons hunt down men, and claim their souls
Those who lose their souls, also lose their minds.
The mad attack the sane, and chaos reigns
Vallarfax spoke of the enticing power of Demon souls.
Each time a Demon claims a human soul,
the Demon's own soul is invigorated by the life force,
And the power of a mature Demon soul is beyond human imagination.
The legend spread quickly.

Mighty warriors were drawn to the accursed land, but none have returned.
Biorr of the Twin Fangs
Yurt the Silent Chief
Sage Urbain
Scirvir the Wanderer
The Sixth Saint Astraea and her knight Garl Vinland
and Sage Freke the Visionary.

The Colorless Deep Fog slowly creeps beyond Boletaria's borders.
Humankind faces a slow and steady extinction.
The Deep Fog will eventually swallow all lands near and far.

But Boletaria has one final hope. A lone warrior who has braved the baneful fog.
Has the land found its savior, or have the Demons found a new slave?

Standing in the Battledome

Demon's Souls doesn't stand out as a particularly strong universe overall. That's not to say it's weak though. Even the weakest of demons can generate enough energy to level a building or large building where as the higher tiered characters sit around town level or potentially even higher. Its the top tier that fleshes out the power of the verse, holding characters that through pure power of their souls hold the fabric of reality/the planet together to keep it from destruction.

For the level of power they possess, their speed is kind of par to wanting, sitting around supersonic.

In terms of hax and other assorted abilities you're talking along the lines of soul manipulation, elemental manipulation (of your generic 4 classic elements variety [primarily of the fire variety]), sound manipulation, flight & levitation, necromancy, immortality, invisibility, poison manipulation, possession, summoning, minor forms of healing and regeneration, and magic.
