I like this Idea a lot.  For the DCs that have human looks make them come
from humans that have sold their souls.  For pixies and the such too
small or Ghosts (if you add them in)  could be from the amount of sin in
the local area. (This of course would mean that if you converted many
people than the power of those DCs in the area would be less)  For the
just out right strange you could have monsters that came from animals or
that were hatched from Dragon eggs.  Though with the dragon eggs I would
have it be unions that demons had with humans as written about in the
bible.  You know the strongmen and the mighty men....
