Not just in TFT - in the very first D&D campaign I played in (late 70s) it 
was possible for characters to be put into the "monster summoning pool," a fate 
that at least one PC suffered and eventually overcame. 

For Etan, I use the explaination that "demons" are convicts, spirits 
sentenced to servitude for violations of divine law. (This explains their unpleasant 
attitude...) Minor demonlings serve as summoned beings - when a summoning spell 
is cast, they're forced to shapeshift, appear, and fight & suffer under the 
wizard's mental command. (But not die - when "killed" they are revived so that 
they can be summoned to fight and suffer again.) More powerful demons (the 
"greater" and "lesser" demons of the spells) can't be directly mind-controlled, 
but are geased to appear when summoned and to obey the word of the summoner. 
And there are other demons & demonlings who are held to other forms of 
servitude, and thus cannot be summoned.
