Lessee... Asmodeus' (!!) don't have to "wear out their welcome" by corrupting the host.
One of Beleth's might be able to run to the other side of the Marches.
A Shedite of Belial might take up residence in some fire that didn't ever get put out, but that's getting pretty dubious...
Shedim of Death can wander around in corpses...
And Shedim of Valefor don't *need* a host (if you really want to be a big target for all the celestials in the area...).
Shedim of Technology can stay in their laptop.
And those are the only ones who wouldn't *necessarily* have to walk *quite* as narrow a tightrope...
"A Shedite of Belial might take up residence in some fire that didn't ever get put out, but that's getting pretty dubious..."
Plot Seed: Lee Harvey Oswald was under Shedistic control when he shot JFK...and now the demon is cooling out in the Eternal Flame trying to earn Redemption.
