Are You Afraid of the Dark Wiki

 The Evil Demon is the overall main antagonist of Are You Afraid of the Dark?. As well as the main antagonist in the three part mini series: The Tale of the Silver Sight.


The Evil Demon, was a malevolent being of pure evil. Throughout time, he had been summoned time and time again. He was usually summoned, when a great deal of negative emotions were building up. Emotions such as conflict, greed, lust, envy, betrayal. Also it can be assumed that again time and time again, it just gets impatient and shows up when it wants too.

He was an extremely powerful demon. He might have looked like an innocent Victorian Era waif kid, all tattered and torn and down on his luck. However this was all a facade to make him appear seemingly innocent and sweet. At any given time, he could transform into a terrifying demon and scare his victims to death. He could also create powerful illusions and animate objects to life.

He was a devoted servant for a pure evil charm known as The Silver Sight. Throughout time, encountered many people. Then he tested their strength and wits through a series of illusions and deadly traps. He would then award them the Silver Sight. Then he would advise each person to let it know who their enemies were. He conned them into thinking the charm would make their enemies disappear. When he would actually trap their enemies souls into the charm for eternity. When doing this, he would help strengthen the power of the charm.

In 1937, he met a group of teenagers known as The Midnight Society, they were Gene, Laing Candle, Bruce McGorrill, Donna Tilton and Eleanor Gregory. He then passed the Silver Charm onto them. However, he didn't inform them at the time that the charm was evil. Also that everything that wished for would have serious consequences. When the five teenagers finally realized it was evil, Bruce McGorrill decided to hide the charm. Then the day after Bruce hid the charm, the Demon killed him by making him fall off of a roller coaster.

Then for over the next sixty years, there was peace. The Silver sight was hidden and no more souls were being captured. Then one night in 1999, the Demon got impatient and returned. Gene sensed his presence and tried to stop him alone. Then when he found him, the Demon scared him so badly he died from a heart attack. Gary saw all of this happen in his dream, almost like it was a warning.

Then Gary got together with his brother Tucker. Then along with his friends Andy, Quinn, Megan and Vange they decided to hunt down the Silver Sight and destroy it one and for all. They found out that Bruce McGorrill had recorded a record. Then he broke it into five pieces to reveal where he had hidden the charm.

The Demon made things very difficult for them. Tucker already had his Grandpa Gene's piece so was trying to find the second piece. It was in General Laing Candle's mansion. He  soon realized it was inside a room full of dummies dressed in various soldier and combats outfits He animated the dummies to life, attacking Tucker. Tucker fought them off and out ran the and got the second piece. Then he transformed into a vicious dog and chased after Quinn, but Quinn out ran him with Donna's piece just in time.

Then when Andy lowered Vange down a well to find Bob's piece, He transformed into frightening ghost. He scared her out of her skin, but she got out in time with the record piece. Also he tried to put the blame on General Laing Candle, making it looked like he chased Megan down in the sewer when she was getting Eleanor's piece. When the truth was, he was just trying to help them.

Finally the Midnight Society found out where the Silver Sight was hidden. He then came out and proudly congratulated them on finding it. He then encouraged them to use it to get rid of their enemies. When General Laing Candle showed up just in time to try and stop him. The Demon then tried to trick Gary into thinking General was their enemy and to use it on him. He then got very pushy, impatient and rude. Gary then remembered that what Bob's piece of the record said. That they should always try to know who their true enemy is.

The Demon laughed manically thinking he was about to capture another soul. Then suddenly Gary used it on him, he was shocked and screamed for mercy. Then he began aging rapidly losing all of his powers and he died. Also the Silver Sight lost all of its powers and vanished. Then all of the souls it had captured throughout the centuries were freed at last. Gary knew he was the true enemy, because if he hadn't have been, he never would have asked them to use the charm in the first place.
