|There is more information available on this subject at Daemon on the English Wikipedia.|
A daemon is a computer program that performs its function "in the background" during the normal operation of a computer system. It can provide security services, perform maintenance operations, or communicatee with peripherals and other subsystems.
The terminals located on Installation 00 stated that daemons tried to prevent 032 Mendicant Bias from communicating with the Reclaimer. He may have used the phrase to refer to other Forerunner artificial intelligence on Installation 00 or uncontrollable background processes.
- Daemons are not to be confused with demons, which are good or malevolent supernatural beings between mortals and gods.
