Technically, the Cacodemon is not a single unique character, but rather a species, so wouldn't it make more sense to consider it a concept or something?

It's a species? What are the different types? I thought it was just the ball?

The FAQ states that characters are: "The stars of the games you play, characters must be specifically named, and must display unique personality within either the gameplay or the story of the game to merit a page."

And that a concept is:  "Concepts are the most loosely defined data type, serving as kind of a catch-all for pages and associations that don't currently fit into one of the other data types, such as a race of creatures, a specific in-game event, character abilities, and gameplay characteristics."

By those definitions, the cacodemon (and any type/race of creatures) are a concept, not a character.

Races and species don't need to have multiple "types" to be considered races or species.
