There's three castes of demons. The lower caste of serfs, servants and slaves. The middle ones are the kings and the aristocrats. The highest are the gods. The first two castes are very interested in the world of mortals. Especially the middle caste act aggressively against the mortals to increase their power and influence. Why could the highest caste deviate from this and have no interest in the mortals?

  • While I answered this question, it's really opinion based, and thus subject to closure. – RonJohn Nov 10 at 23:17
  • "How do I get from X to Y questions are on-topic, but are very sensitive to being POB or too story-based. In your case, this feels like both. Because we focus on worldbuilding (how your world/culture works as a system) and not storybuilding (the circumstances of your story), you need to explain how this is generally applicable to any story that takes place in your world. Personally, it feels TSB to me, so I'm voting to close. I'll happily retract once you explain how this isn't story-based. – JBH Nov 10 at 23:55

  • They represent the religion and "heart" of the demons. So their cults, doctrines and guidelines. What they believe, ethics and so on. In contrast to the secular and more "direct" ambitions of the aristocrats. – Siforias Nov 11 at 0:34

For the same reason we humans ignore things that are so far beneath us as to not be noticeable.

For example, how many people notice earthworms? Sure, some people do, but that's because they have a specific interest in either them or what earthworms affect.

Likewise, demon gods are so great and powerful that they "walk" in a realm that's far above the Earthly Plane. Demonic aristocrats and workers don't (or, rarely and only on special occasion) walk in that rarefied place. Mostly, they live and interact in a zone that interfaces with the Earthly Plane.
