What happens when a demon creates a person? I know they can't create minds, but the physical body could be created as a "blank" for a mind to be inserted later Elspeth-like?

Can demons create cloud-fluff?

A demon could probably not make a person from no model - the brain is complicated and badly understood - but with a model, they could make a blank version of somebody for Elspething, sure.

Demons can make cloud-fluff.

Couldn't that serve as a light source, then? Or am I misunderstanding how glowy cloud-fluff is?

"model" means? a brain model? does it need to be person-specific?

Yes and Yes. The questions are more about the demonic capabilities than practical uses.

It does mean a brain-model, and it doesn't have to be person-specific for Elspeth's purposes (though they do need to be able to recognize themselves as the target person), though loading up the brain with a mind by non-Elspeth mechanisms might require matching.

Cloud-fluff is a little glowy, but unless there's a lot of it around it's not that efficient at it. If you live in a cave made entirely of cloud-fluff, there is plenty of light to see by. If you want to live in a house, you're better off with lamps.

Thanks! this might or not involve fanfiction done by someone that is having a writer's block.

also, why the incandescent peal couldn't summon Cam?

You can only summon daeva from the attached mortal world.

And that's different between the Incandescence continuity and the various Cam sandboxes, yes? I think that's the source of blue's confusion.

Yeah, the sandboxes tweak that rule to get Cam in various people's worlds.
