Davey and the Demon. Young Davey Drew sneaks out of the orphanage at night and finds a cave. At the end of the cave is a wall, from behind which comes a voice asking to be freed. Davey follows the voice's instructions and lets loose the Demon, who was imprisoned behind the wall "in the days before time began" because he has done harm "on other planets throughout all eternity." But as a gesture of gratitude to Davey he swears not to hurt him, and he gives Davey a cloak that will protect him. Then the Demon goes out on a rampage and Davey tries to stop him. The "Prince of Good," a magician who imprisoned the Demon in the cave in "primordial times," ends up appearing and fighting against the Demon, and then the Demon is trapped underground. The Demon has vaguely defined magical powers, but is big and has super-strength. They appear in stories with titles like “No One Is Safe” and “The Demon’s Rampage.”
