It began with a child's realization of the cruelty of the world. He saw with his own eyes, heard with his own ears, and empathized with the pain of the people who inhabited it. Pure hatred between two species that existed for a reason that most can't even remember drove one child to chase the dream of peace between the two species.
The "demons" and the humans had mental obstacles that opposed any chance harmony between them.They were trained from birth that the other side was the enemy; and so, a war broke out. Everything had been set. The gas had been poured. The match had been lit. All that was left was something to start the fire.
One snowy, winter night, 50 years ago, the fields on an outskirt of the large city, Siba, had its pure, white ground, stained red. People of both species' bodies were laying, lifeless, covered in blood of their own selves and of the others around them.
A couple of days later, reports came out saying that it was a gang related fight that had taken the worst turn. One of the gangs was all demons, the other was made all up of only humans. This was not the first incident involving bloodshed between the two species. However, this time was different, for one of the demons' bodies belonged to the wife of a high ranking demon general. His influence and power that he had acquired in his lifetime was used in his fit of rage. He, along with 50 powerful demon soldiers, marched through the streets of Siba, killing any human that was unfortunate enough to have been in their path. After 152 people had been killed, they were stopped. 22 of the soldiers had been detained and were taken to a maximum security prison where they were to spend the rest of their lives. The remaining 38 soldiers were killed on site, as they showed no signs of relent. And the general, the one who started the tirade, was executed publicly, shown on all channels on the television. His execution drew in over 50,000 people. And thus, the incident had finally come to an end.
After everything, people felt it was unsafe for the two species to be living with each other. A law was passed immediately, creating a border between them. The demons, however, were furious at the outcome. They were to live north of the forest that divided the continent in two. The land there had harsh, cold winters, with little to live off of. This sparked the biggest clash the world had known: a war between the two species.
It lasted 6 months. The demons were physically stronger, and some of the soldiers were born with "Marks" that seemingly gave the special powers. However, the humans had discovered a chemical to mix with their ammunition that the demons were weak to. It would kill them within seconds upon contact. They dubbed the chemical, "Holy light" as it was used by military officers that were trained under the church's military. It was a completely one-sided war, with the humans taking complete victory.
Everything resulted in the demons being forced to live north of the forest. The church's reputation rose after the war, with just about as much respect as the government. The word of the church could be seen law, and the history of the war was preached to the attendees of Mass.
In present day, humans, still being heavily influenced by the church, saw the demons as savages, and beings that they should fear and hate. The demons had been taught that the humans were the reason for their harsh lives. They loathed even the existence of them. All this, even though the two species rarely had encounters of any kind. However, one child, a demon child, decided to pursue the unimaginable peace.

I haven proofread or anything (in case anyone actually reads this.)

I like it so far man keep it up! I actually really want to read this XD. Also I assume you will elaborate how the demon child suddenly came to this realization: maybe he witnessed the kindness of a human or maybe he even finds out he is half human or his mother is caught in the crossfire of some sort of small skirmish between a demon and human and she is killed. So basically he needs an actual reason for this goal of his. Otherwise man I could see this being good XD.

That's actually explained within the story. I consider it too important to just say, so I'm leaving it for a point not too far in. Also, thanks for the feedback
