I am very lovable and Maou has spent too much time on the Internets…
And one of these days Bess will realize she’s in love with me.
She’s just playing hard to get.
Also, remember, Gastrope’, Jenn, Maelen, Edwyrd and Rupert all swore they were my friends! Remember? They can’t go back on that!!!!!
There aren’t many demon wizards, and you can’t just drag a human physically to the abyss, you have to discorporate them, keep their animus around and cast all the spells to make a new body.
Exador would be the only person I know capable of this…and why bother, there are already more demons than we know what to do with.
of course, maybe he did that…he did somehow come up with a 1000 demons to stick inside the Council Palace.
And he managed that while living in Astlan for the last thousand plus years…
