Erlkonig is a recurring demon in the series.

History[]

The Erlkönig (Alder King), or Erlking, is a sinister, mythical elf who is said to linger in the woods. He goes around and kills children who stay in the woods too long, and kills them by a single touch. He is depicted in a number of German poems and ballads as a malevolent creature who haunts forests and carries off travelers to their deaths.

The name "Erlking" (German: Erlkönig, lit. "alder-king") is a name used in German Romanticism for the figure of a spirit or "king of the fairies." The name is an 18th-century mistranslation of the original Danish word elverkonge, "elf-king."
