Alright, color me incorrect. ^^; Was worth a shot though.
I've been thinking about this, and I keep coming back to the blurb in the story section. Specifically the line "Most especially, the demon himself, who is no longer the creature he once was... "
Erik's not the demon. Krista and Michelle have said that specifically. And yet, he's the focus. Which means someone else, some close to him is the demon.
Who does that leave? His mother's last words to him seem to implicate his father, after all, the line in question implies that the demon is awake already. But if that's the case, then the seal has been broken already. Which Ishtar would have no doubt felt. If not, and the father is in the dark, how did the mother find out? My instinct says no.
Erik's Younger Brother: A possibility, particularly if Erik is to be a protector. But that doesn't fit either. While mischevious as Ki, it just feels wrong. Again, my instinct says no.
Who else? Why the line, "creature he once was" implies a change in gender. Women, as every man knows, are a wholly different species.
But again. Who? Mel? It would certainly would be funny. But there's too many Yaoish implications in that. Depending on your taste for Yaoi, this is good or bad. My instinct says no, but only because to my knowledge, Krista has written no Yaoi previous to Utukki
Of course, now's a good time as any to start. . .
However, assuming this is not a Yaoi (thus disappointing the entire female readership) that leaves: Tristan. Her parent's dual interest in the Supernatural is a natural metaphysical draw. Her complete disinterest in the Supernatural could be a manifestation of the Seal. After all, if she stays away from the magical arts, then chances are, she won't break the seal on herself.
Of course, now that I've said all that, we'll be thrown a curve ball and left saying; "Dangnabit! We shoulda seen that coming!"
