True Names

Your true name is your full name - as YOU think of it, no one else. This has nothing to do with legality and everything to do with what you think of when someone asks you for your full name.


Specific Details

Many supernatural creatures are uneasy about revealing their full, true names - with good reason. In the wrong hands, a true name can be a very powerful weapon. Knowing the true name of a person or creature means that it is possible to precisely target them with a spell or curse. A true name is also required for any sort of compulsory summoning spell.


Used By

Demons

Demons are the most commonly summoned creatures, and will sometimes purposely leave their names in old tomes so that they will be summoned out of Hell.

Sorcerers

Sorcerers often keep a secret collection of true names, mostly of demons or other supernatural beings they can call on at will.
