The Footmen were demons who served the Gentlemen in their prowling for human hearts.


The Footmen did all the grunt and muscle-work for their masters, such as restraining their victims while the Gentlemen cut out their hearts, and, when necessary, fighting. They resembled humanoid creatures with brownish, bandaged faces and wore unrestrained straight jackets. Unlike the Gentlemen, who were capable of hovering, the Footmen were barely able to walk upright.

Also unlike their masters, who could not be killed by anything other than a human scream, the Footmen could be killed by normal means such as having their necks broken.[1] Unlike with the Gentlemen, human voice isn't fatal to them, however still cause them severe pain.
