Demon of desire

The doll Demon of desire was influenced by H. P. Lovecraft's character Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos. Nyarlathotep frequently walks the Earth in the guise of a human being, usually as a tall, slim, joyous man. He delights in cruelty, is deceptive and manipulative, and even cultivates followers using manipulation to achieve his goals. It is suggested by some that he will destroy the human race and possibly the earth as well.

"…And it was then that Nyarlathotep came out of Egypt. Who he was, none could tell. He said he had risen up out of the blackness of twenty-seven centuries, and that he had heard messages from places not on this planet. He spoke much of the sciences - of electricity and psychology - and gave exhibitions of power which sent his spectators away speechless, yet which swelled his fame to exceeding magnitude. Men advised one another to see Nyarlathotep, and shuddered. And where Nyarlathotep went, rest vanished; for the small hours were rent with the screams of a nightmare."

—H. P. Lovecraft, Nyarlathotep
