And maybe some Edessians came over via cargo ship in an unaffected area of the country. Of course Edessa is a shithole now, so they thought maybe things were better in Korrav.

I don't think so, not at the start.
Perhaps later, but definately not instantly.
I know you're bringing this up so you can have you're Edessians. But you have to realize there ARE tourists, as well as infiltration agents. Just as well, someone might be a Korran but an Edessian immigrant...

These demons could be the replacement of Homo Novus with similar characteristics as them.

SPOILER FOR DARK ONE'S ORIGINS
Spoiler:
Dark Ones were just humans topside that survived the initial blasts and radiation then mutated into Dark Ones. They were incapable of communicating with other humans because of their mouth-mutation and spoke through thoughts: which were on a different level and drove people insane with hallucinations, Artyom was capable of understanding the Dark Ones because he was "adopted" by the Dark Ones when he was little...

I'm tired so I don't know whether that was directed at both of us or not, but the basis of Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light is around the the Dark Ones and the societies within the Metros that live in fear of them.

Metro 2033 was based around killing the Dark Ones because they were becoming a large threat.
Last Light involves trying to kill the last one, then realizing that they're intent is to assist.
We could easily just have the same ordeal of mutated humans. Or we can have Last Light's ordeal with a massive war brewing between all the factions in strive of a bunker that holds, basically, infinite power through resources and fortifications.

In most of these cases mutated humans simply become the mutant predators. Even then, they wouldn't pose as large of a threat as say an arming and lethal factions just down the tunnel from you. The reason I say demons is simply because they kind of already have the basics of controlling lesser beings and commanding them to do their will. While that might not exactly fit into Homo Novus precisely, there is at least the psychological aspect of it going on. Plus if you turn a jumbled bunch of predators who war each other and can easily kill a human into a honed fiting force with near military order, you'd be dealing with a larger threat that would have everyone living in fear and would probably cause even more fighting.

You have to realize that that would basically turn it into an absolute steamroll; the threat at that stage wouldn't be a threat, it'd be an absolute fact with no hope.
the Metro series was always about a sliver of hope, albeit it's classified as a game and book series with a hopeless atmosphere, it wouldn't be very apetizing to have that atmosphere.
I'd rather we had a similar Dark One's ordeal as a side-plot, with a large scaled World/Metro War occur between all the factions and the goal for the RP is to have the players be a part of a more neutral faction trying to obtain said bunker and turn it into a hub for all instead of for one.
Alack, we could still have your idea; if it would attract more people.

It isn't hopeless because the sheer volume of demons being distributed across the country would probably be incredibly small. Probably around six, large enough to be a threat, but not large enough to go steamrolling through stations. I mean, blast doors will hault anyone advances, and there would obviously be dozens of these. If you were to take it in the aspect of the metros, Demons would prey upon the outer stations and isolated ones. The exact fear factor would be spread through survivors, or when a station survived the attack, so there would be much more fear which usually causes more conflict. I wouldn't say that they can control massive masses of mutants, but enough to be a threat to sole stations.

Your demons are immortal, however. You had very specific Demon Hunters; and even those weren't always successful.
The Dark Ones were killable; they simply created hallucinations so the shooter shot one of the hallucinations.

I said they were immortal, but they could be vanquished from the mortal plane. Otherwise there'd be literally no use for modern demon hunters in Darkona.

The fact remains you had a specific order to take them out; people who trained entirely to kill them.
And you stated that they weren't always definate in their results.
And what would we have? A band of people JUST surviving... The idea is irrational to me, but I don't want to argue in circles; if the people wanting to join like the idea of having actual demons in their apocalypse, by all means, I'll roll with it...

I think that's everyone who'd said they'd join...

Mayhaps we could have a more action oriented RP later; based at The Iron Wall, where we could have your demon problem...
