Demons
Generally identified by less vibrant skin tones and a variation of horns, spikes and markings on their skin, Demons are the feared and most powerful. Generally adept at magic, they are capable of giving humans a 'gift' of a portion of their powers. Whether this is regarded as a blessing or a curse is up for debate, but some go out of their way to seek it out. 
They are notoriously hard to kill due to the speed at which they heal their wounds and it generally takes magical weaponry or dismemberment to kill one.

Damned
Once humans, The Damned are those who have received either a blessing or a curse from a Demon and taken on a portion of their powers. This generally warps their appearance and they may take on traits of the demon that curses/blesses them. This can be an incredibly painful experience if done against the human's will, which is sometimes the case. The Damned are sometimes shunned by other humans, although in shiftier areas people tend not to care.
They are generally more adept with magics than they were as humans as well as having increased strength, speed and tend to heal quicker, although not nearly as much so as demons.
The Damned live about twice to three times as long as regular humans.

Humans




Humans are, well... humans. They live under constant threat of Demons from the area getting bored and kidnapping or killing them for sport. Some areas live in truce with demons while some are picked at and dying or fighting actively. There are groups among them that have formed "Demon Hunters" that will attempt to kill them or rescue human slaves and occasionally those who have been Damned. 
Some of them are talented with magics (generally those who have had Damned ancestors) and they are generally untrusting of those with too much power for fear that they may be affiliated with Demons.

The Faithful




As the demons moved in upon the territory, the connection between the people and the holy light that once kept them safe was severed to near nothingness. There were those whose connection to this holy power was stronger than others, however, an given training and meditation they can maintain this connection to fend off the demons that plague the land. Their number is few, however, and they see no difference between demons and those they have damned. To do so would risk their connection to the holy light that is the source of their strength. 
The more the meditate on their Faithfulness, the more resistant they are to damages. It will take more force to cut/bruise/etc one of the Faithful than it would a human. 
Some of them dabble with demon hunters, although they do not hesitate to kill even the human slaves of the demons on the chance that they've been tainted. Some others are so strict in their ruling of what is evil and isn't that they will shun human users of magics, the so-called "black arts". 
The Faithful often seek those they can teach their discipline to, taking on apprentices in their unending quest to remove the demonic taint from the land and return it to their light.

Often, once initiated as an official member of the Order of Faithful, they will be given a title. This reflects their strongest virtue, (or at least one that they wish to portray). The Faithfullive about twice to three times as long as regular humans.

**While technically they are a group, only certain people are even able to forge this connection with holy energies. This is due to a mixing of blood of an 'angelic' race that is no longer present, although whether they all died or are just not present is up for debate. **
