From the few flavour I've seen about imp nature, they seem to be basically mini-demons. Are they, therefore, mana manifestations too?

Likewise, the whole demon/devil/imp category seems remarkably complex. I guess it does suggest demons are the more side of

Short answer, no.  You seem to be confusing imps with devils.  Demons and devils are what we consider as constructs of mana, while imps are actual living things that almost exclusively serve dark beings.

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Most sources do seem to reffer to imps as mini-demons, though.

Most sources being what exactly?
Aside from that, Devils are manifestations directly related to demons. Or at least, that is the case on Innistrad, the only place we've explored devils in any substantial light. The only other two places we've got a look at them is Rakdos and Alara, and they never came with explanations there.

That being said, it seems like Imps are born beings unrelated to demons, though they are often seen in company of such beings.
