Digital Demons: Statistics & Facts
Warning: Contains Major Spoilers; Do not read until you have finished the story.
The Digital World
The Digital World is a parallel dimension to Earth, which was created by the compilations of massive amounts of data. Time there passes differently, at a rate of approximately 1 minute to 1 Day, meaning that for every minute that passes in the human world, one day passes in the Digital World. Expanding on this; about four years pass in the Digital world every day in the Human World.
In Digital Demons the Digital World is divided up into eight areas. The largest of these areas is the Ocean area, covering about half the total surface of the Digital World. All of the continental masses of the Digital World are connected to each other, with the Ocean interspersed between them. The Glacier Area, the smallest, is actually split into two; one part at the northern most end of the Digital World, and another at the southern most.
The Mountain area is less of an area than a border. All of the continental areas of the Digital World are separated by mountain ranges, which in turn are connected to each other. Due to this, the mountains are the most widespread terrain in the Digital World. The mountainous borders can make crossing from one area to the next a hassle, but many of them have tunnels or pathways designed to ease this problem.
The City Area is the most rapidly growing in the Digital World, and is the only area not bounded by mountains. It is the most technologically and industrially developed part of the Digital World, and exists within the Plains Area. The Plains Area consists mostly of grassy fields, and is very suitable for farming. The most important feature of the Plains area is the Primary Village, where old data goes to be reconfigured and new Digimon are born.
The two largest continental areas of the Digital World are the Forest and Desert Areas. The Forest Area however, contains much more abundant and diverse life. The more southern regions of the forest begin to resemble a jungle, and at its southernmost point it borders the Ocean area. The Desert Area is dry and arid, and typically a hostile environment.
The last Area of the Digital World is the Dark Area, which borders the Desert, Plains, and northern Glacier Areas. This area was created by the Great War that raged between the Benevolent Masters and the Demon Lords when the Digital World was still fairly young. The main part of the Dark Area was sealed off, but was surrounded by a barren landscape that became known as 'The Fringe'. In itself the Dark Area is exactly like the Fringe; barren and inhabited mainly by evil Digimon.
The Digimon, an abbreviation of 'Digital Monster', are the life forms that inhabit the Digital World. They are very diverse in terms of both species and form. Digimon are all born at the Primary Village, in the form of 'Digieggs'. When these eggs hatch, the become Baby Digimon. Digimon grow and evolve like humans, but not in a gradual fashion. Their evolution is based on stages, starting from the Infant Stage they proceed through In-Training, Rookie, Champion, Ultimate and Mega Stages. There are also a few select Digimon who are given the 'God' classification in addition to their evolution level. This classification denotes that they possess powers far beyond normal Digimon.

Life and Death in the Digital World
Digimon are all born at Primary Village, in the form of a Digiegg. When the eggs hatch they begin as fresh Digimon (Either Baby or In-Training). They usually leave the village once they reach the Rookie level, and start traveling towards whichever area they are best suited for. Digimon are made of data, not flesh and blood. As such they do not bleed, they do not get sick (although viruses can corrupt them) and they cannot die of old age.
There are two ways that a Digimon can die; by being killed in battle or of their own will. When a Digimon sustains mortal injuries, their bodies will dissolve into the composite data. A digimon can also voluntarily decompile itself if it feels that it has been alive too long, or otherwise grown tired of its current life. Although Digimon do need to eat and sleep in order to remain energized, deprivation of either of these things will not be fatal.
When a Digimon dies, the data travels to an oblivion that has no real name. Once there, the data is tended to by a mysterious entity. This entity is known to very few living Digimon, and is called Yggdrasil. The data that belonged to a good Digimon is reconfigured into a Digiegg, and sent to Primary Village. The data from Evil Digimon is consumed by Yggdrasil, after which its fate is unknown. Digimon whose data was corrupted before their deletion can be purified by Yggdrasil. Digimon who performed Evil deeds, but have a desire for redemption are sometimes given a trial. Should they pass this trial, they receive another chance, and are sent back to Primary Village.
In rare cases, a Digimon with a strong will can 'load' the data of defeated opponents. This data is not lost, but simply integrated into the Digimon that loaded it. The act of loading data grants the loader new powers or abilities. When a Digimon that loaded the data of another dies, the loaded data is separated from the host by Yggdrasil. However; both the Digimon who are loaded and the ones who loaded them take longer to be reborn, due to the separation process. In the special case of Evan's partner loading the data from Waru/Metalseadramon, their data would not be separated, since it belonged to him to begin with.
Digivice: An electronic device that is given to the Children of virtue. It serves as a connection between them and their partners, and can be used to make them evolve. They also have the ability to scan and store data on the Digimon they encounter. The original Digivice was created by Shakkoumon, and is currently in the possession of Takeshi. The Digivices owned by the other children were copies created from the original. The original Digivice possesses greater functionality than the copies, and possibly its own intelligence.
Evolution: The general action by which a Digimon progresses to the next level.
Super Evolution: Specific term for evolving to the Ultimate Level.
Leap Evolution: Specific term for evolving to the Mega Level from Champion.
Degenerate: The action by which a Digimon returns to a lower evolution level.
Digiscript: A pictographic language used in the Digital World. All Digimon are born with a basic understanding of it, but they must study to gain an in depth understanding.
Attack Declarations: All Digimon of reasonable intelligence call out the names of their special techniques before using them. The reason for this is likely that the Digimon wish to let their opponent know their capabilities, so that a fight with a worthy opponent becomes more challenging. This is tied to the fact that Digimon tend to seek out strong opponents to prove their own strength (i.e. A fight against someone who isn't smart enough to protect themselves when a powerful attack is coming, really isn't worthwhile).
Chrome Digizoid: Chrome Digizoid is a type of metal exclusive to the Digital World. It is incredibly strong, and in most cases can only be damaged by other Chrome Digizoid objects. Standard Chrome Digizoid is silver in colour, but other varieties including blue (light weight; speed based), red (heavy; defense based) and gold (high degree of sharpness; offence based) exist. Due to the fact that many Digimon develop Chrome Digizoid weapons and/or armour during the evolution process, it is possible that the metal contains organic components.
The 'Myth' of Humans: Due to the fact that the Human and Digital Worlds are generally isolated from each other, one does not usually acknowledge the existence of the other. In the case of the Human World, most of them have no concept whatsoever of the Digital World. In the Digital World, there were some who had knowledge of the Human World's existence. However, because so few actually had this knowledge, it became widely accepted as a myth. This myth was dispelled by the coming of the Children of Virtue.
The Ancient War: When the Digital World was still relatively young, the seven Demon Lords sought to conquer it by forcible means. This led to the eventual war with the Benevolent Masters. This war threatened to consume the entire Digital World, until the Benevolent Masters sealed the Final battle to within the Dark Area. During the final battle, the Benevolent Masters succeeded in defeating the Demon Lords, but were unable to completely destroy them. Instead they were kept sealed within the Dark Area, watched over by the Benevolent Masters.
Morality of the Digital World: In the Digital World, fighting is a way of life for many. As such, the act of killing an opponent is not necessarily considered evil. Digimon who fight generally follow a principle of 'survival of the fittest', where the strong eliminate the weak. However; as Digimon grow more intelligent, they generally turn away from their roots of struggle and conflict, seeking out more fulfilling endeavors.
