"Your boldness is commendable, mortal. I beseech your silent and obedient accompaniment," Demogorgon grinned in the gloom. "What that suppose to be a come-on? Sorry, but you aren't my type," retorted Lyudmila as her dragon howled. Waves churned on the ocean surface, mirroring the strife far below. Sea creatures great and small desperately scrambled away as fast as possible. The death match between Demogorgon and Lyudmia was nigh.
Demogorgon, although often ascribed to Greek mythology, is attributed to a fourth-century scholar, imagined as the name of a pagan deity or demon, associated with the underworld and envisaged as a powerful primordial being, whose very name had been taboo. Various theories suggest that the name is derived from a combination of the Greek words daimon ("spirit" given the Christian connotations of "demon") or, less likely demos ("people") and Gorgon ("grim") - the Ancient Greek triad of goddesses (Stheno, Euryale and Medusa) whose name derived from word gorgos ("dreadful").
Lyudmila, Ludmila or Ludmilla is a Slavic feminine name; the meaning is "loved by the people", consists of two elements lud "people" and mila "dear, favour, love".
