- "Many of the old prophecies are cryptic and contradictory but on one they're all clear: in the final days of this century The Promised One will appear and save us from The Scourge."
- ―Elder Lister Demon[src]
The "Promised One" was a mythic figure in the prophecies of Lister demons. The Promised One was prophecized to save the Lister people from The Scourge in the final days of the 20th century. While the Los Angeles Listers initially believed the vampire Angel to be the Promised One, it turned out to be Allen Francis Doyle.
