Not many people know that Santa's reindeer - Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, and Blitzen - were originally humanoid demons who served Mephisto, who is one of the generals of hell. After thousands of years of servitude the demons grew tired of the mighty general's treatment of them and attempted to overthrow him, but they underestimated the dark lord's power and were easily defeated. For punishment, they were cast out of hell and sold to another demon named Santa Claus, a being of immense power but who had a much more agreeable image due to a very good agent - CAA - who handled his public relations. The world thought of Santa Claus as a jolly, rotund fellow who came about once a year and left presents around a Christmas tree, but in reality he was a demon of supreme strength who was only biding his time until he took the lives of every household he visited and absorbed their souls into his own being, thus becoming the most powerful demon of all and eventually engaging in a final conflict with Satan that is written will rock the cosmos to it's very core. The demons were turned into Santa's magical reindeer and are doomed to forever to do his bidding, pulling his sled all around the world every Christmas Eve and spending the rest of the year locked in a giant stable where they are barely given enough food and warmth to survive, thus more easily controlled.
