The Fire Demon is the guardian of the Valor Medal and a protector of the Fire Tribe encountered in quest 5: Courage Mountain. The tribe force the Hero to go through the Path of Trials before he may reach the mountains summit and face Deface. If the Hero proves brave enough to cross the river of lava and retreive the Valor Medal the Fire Demon will threaten the Hero and tell him to leave the medal. If the Hero leaves the medal and run the demon will call him a "spineless fool" and the Hero will fail the test. However if the Hero chooses to face the demon he will fin him easy to defeat and will earn the respect of the Demon and the Fire Tribe and gain passage to the mountain's summit.
