Final Fantasy Brave Exvius[]

A piece of armor made by a man who went nameless throughout his lifetime. This man of impressive strength and magical power produced many pieces of superior equipment. However, people found the large yet shy man a bit odd, eventually coming to call him the "monster." Before long, rumors circulated that he acquired his unique blacksmithing abilities thanks to some sort of demonic contract, and before anyone knew it he disappeared.

A demon is "an evil spirit or devil, especially one thought to possess a person or act as a tormentor in hell".
