Demon Lord was a term used to refer to the demons that took over several areas of Los Angeles after the city was sent to Hell by Wolfram & Hart's Senior Partners. Some of them, like Kr'ph or Non, where originally nothing more than bottom-feeders that took advantage of the chaos in order to climb up in the new system.
Most of the Demon Lords were killed by the explosions of their Hagan Shafts, provided to them by Teeth, Lord of Santa Monica, who betrayed his fellow Lords to Angel in exchange for his life. Lorne, Lord of Silver Lake, was then left as sole authority figure until the city was restored.
Thanks to the temporal fold performed by the Senior Partners to resurrect Angel, however, all the dead Lords were resurrected. Those who had been betrayed by Teeth decided to exact their revenge of the demon loan shark.
