electric eel reference (add electric effect):

he falls in love with the moray. However, the moray rejects him. When he creates a beautiful electric display, the moral falls in love with him. But when he can’t give her children because they are different species, he eats her and then himself.

The demons are drawn to Charlotte because she is in love with an exorcist (Abel Caraway), a strong protector. They wish to use her and Abel to fulfill their legend.

Final Fantasy Leviathan, example of creative fantasy eel design

moray eel: reference for the type/shape of moray eel.
color should be red with white spots

NOTE: The eels have been transformed by their legend. So there is room for creativity. They are more fantasy eels. So adding some interesting fantasy anatomy would be nice. An example would be Final Fantasy’s Leviathan. Just make sure the eels look like they are different species because that’s important to their story. Their original species should be recognizable.
