Demon Kin

Gillian screamed as another contraction rippled through her. There was, Harold decided, no more terrifying sound than a vampire's screams of pain. If God had had any hand in his birth, Harold would have thanked Him for not making him a woman.

He flung open the bedroom door. "More bags of blood!" he said, "and keep tem coming."

Inside again he looked into Azazel's face. The arch demon was calm to the point of meditation; a sharp contrast to Gillian who was quite literally sweating blood. "Will she be all right?" he asked.

Azazel opened golden eyes, a vanity he was recently enamoured of. "I expect so," he said. "If not, I'll have at least learned a little more about supernatural genetics."

Azazel the scientist? He is a cool customer. Lovely.

Azazel was the first angel to impregnate a human, according to the Apocrypha

Well then! Even doing a study whilst attending child birth you'd think he'd be a bit more - um - concerned? Maybe his obsession with his golden eyes is making him see into himself more clearly when he meditates.

Just listening to (and for the first time) Harry Potter and all his shenanigans in each book. Golden eyes seem to be a thing there too.

Really? I don't recall golden eyes in HP. Perhaps Azazel read it too.
