Random Biblical Query

Does anybody know if there's a term used in Christian or Gnostic sources (Hebrew, Latin, English or otherwise) used to describe both angels and demons (or archons, or whutever)?

I realise there's the idea of "fallen angels" inherent in Christian demonology, but I was wondering if there's some kind of overall term, a way of referring to them collectively (e.g. the greek "daimones" I believe used to refer to both good and bad spirits). Almost like a 'taxon' or something.

It's for a project I'm working on, and sci-fi-esque stuff like "entities" makes my skin crawl.

Thanks in advance!
