Whats up with summoning. I don't think Dagog a Barbarian would really care anyway. He's more into hard cold steel and prefers to look his enemies in the eye as he slices into them. Should Nesh disappear every few days to preform his rites of sacrifice now. His whole character advancement seems critical to these little rituals. Dagog already has 1 point of corruption surely I ain't gonna get more by turning a blind eyes from wizard strangeness.

As a barbarian I would imagine Dagog would be more superstitious than most. The fact that he only trusts cold hard steel and a foe that he can look in the eyes would make him more suspicious of demons.

Demons are demons. They aren't spirits or gods or faeries or lloigor. They're evil and inhuman. I would imagine that in any nation, from Cimmeria to Stygia, a sorcerer would be strung up for consorting with demons. It is a guilty secret that a sorcerer should keep to himself.

Of couse, as individuals our characters can react to demons any way we choose. It should be said though that the most reasonable reponse to seeing a demon or even hearing about them would be abject fear.

Keep in mind that while the players know what Nesh'ar-ebra has been up to, the characters are still in the dark to some degree.

Yeah I gathered Dagog would be superstitious, but given his sheltered exsistance and limited knowledge of Religon/Magic; he might at least be curious.
Something burns in me, could I take on a demon, could I defeat death?.
