The Demon's Light Wiki

Doctor Richard Devlin is a recurring character in The Demon's Light. He is Melissa and Steven Devlin's uncle and the latter's employer at the Laboratory of the Unexplainable.


Richard is a middle-aged man with dark hair and brown eyes. He often wears turtleneck sweaters or vests, with dark pants, belts, and monk shoes.

While working in the laboratory, he tends to wear a light collared shirt, a dark vest, and a colored tie with a long, white lab coat, and neutral-tone pants.

When he is introduced in "Ceasefire" until "The Hounds," he wears a white collared shirt, a dark gray vest, a blue tie and dark gray pants.


Richard is a kind, generous, and thoughtful man. He is very dedicated to his work and loyal to people close to him. A benevolent man and a humanitarian, he enjoys helping people where he can.


Richard Devlin inherited the laboratory from his parents, Elijah and Ira, where he continued their work on studying angels, demons, and the portal.

He married Binita Navani in 300 TP after meeting her while he vacationed in eastern Thales. A geologist, she studied in the mountains, researching lithological changes due to the portal. Enthralled by the similarities between their work, he quickly fell in love with her.

Sometime in 304 TP, Richard and Binita adopted and took care of his niece and nephew, Melissa and Steven Devlin, due to the deaths of his brother and sister-in-law in a house fire.

In 316 TP, Binita died after she was stuck in her mountain home during a freak storm from Muné and supply lines were cut off from the mountain due to the risk of landslides.

After the death of his wife, Richard became increasingly charitable.
