The Golden Book of Demons: A Best-Of
Being a heavily subjective list of the better-known demons. The overlap with “Princes and Kings,” “Goetica”, and “So Many Satans” is unavoidable.
Abaddon / Apollyon
The Angel of the Abyss and the great destroyer
I would like the Prince of Lust to look a little less...you know...horrifying
One of the world's most powerful goddesses, now a mid-level demon
An ancient spirit of the wilderness,, and perhaps the first Satan.
#1 in the Goetia, and in our hearts.
Icon of Satanism as a rebellious movement
Lord of the flies and the divinely-appointed regent of Hell
How can one demon be "worthless" and "#2 in Hell, second only to Luucifer?"
President, doctor, herbalist, pinwheel
The 3-headed guardian at the gates of Hell
Canaanite god of grain, fertility, vegetation, storms...but probably not fish
Leviathan and Behemoth
Sea monster, ancient dragon, Princess of Envy. And +1.
One of the best-known demons, Adam's ex and the "other woman" to the entire universe
The first name in fallen angels, and emperor of hell
The concept of greed, personified...
Reasonably young and incredibly famous, the newest face of the devil
Ancient Canaanite deity whose name is forever linked with a terrible sacrifice...
Gender-ambiguous king of the West, now in theaters!
The snake-phallused demon of pea soup and plague...to the rescue!
Sometimes demon prince, sometimes Angel of Death, a powerful, complex spirit.
It takes effort to make love magic even creepier, but he'll take the challenge.
For someone at the top of the demonic hierarchy there's not a lot out there about this one...
