"Vampiris Sancti: The Demon Prince" by Katri Cardew

The Martyc watched the wary eyes of the room, his presence meant either sanction or investigation and where there was a demon then paranoia was never too far behind. Their universe was one of constant struggle to survive, betrayal rather than loyalty, acquisition rather than trade was the norm. The human realm had thrown everyone for a loop, for this was no backward realm. These beings not only knew how, but also loved to fight and would happily raze their world to dust than tolerate invasion. Vampires were the demon face of the human world, and Martycs the power behind the curtain ensuring all demons respected the Veil—the illusion humans had of their realm. Though Vryn tended to keep a low profile on this world he made certain all demons respected the wishes of Empire, or reap the brutal consequence of insolence.
