a rather benign name, Amy is an extremely high ranking Demon in
Christian theology; he is considered to be the ruling President of Hell. It
is said that he appears in flame, but upon taking human form he used
his demonic wiles to entrap familiars, to master human sciences and to
manipulate the politics of the church. He is bent on taking the thrown of Hell and we are warned that he will use whatever means are possible to do so. Amy
may be preoccupied with the political structure of various planes of
existence, but he remains capable of commanding legions and waging war
in the Book of Tobias (Deuteronomy), Asmodeus is not your typical all
around demon, he is considered to be one of the Princes of Hell, though
other sources cite him as one of the King’s of Hell, a distinction that
may not be all that important. Among other
things, Asmodeus is responsible for the lust component of the famed
Seven Deadly Sins, and it is said that those who submit to his sexual
manipulation will be doomed to an eternity in the second level of Hell.
is a powerful demon indeed, one of the original 72 to be named in The
Lesser Key of Solomon, and this is one to watch out for. He
will use temptation to lure and guide humans to their unending torture;
he again, takes a role in the list of the Seven Deadly Sins.
the distinction of being the most mysterious extrahuman character in
Jewish sacred literature, his presence has been felt throughout the
ages, but little is known about his origin or even his affiliation. He
is a peddler of influence and knowledge, and popular culture has
exploited his reputation and possibly given rise to his recent
Baal may be the worst demon there is, he is said to be the ruling King of hell. His
role as that of the right hand of Satan, and as the leader of sixty-six
legions of lesser demons, makes him possibly the most dangerous entity
ever conceived. His high rank and responsibility
may make him less of a threat to the average living human, though
ruthlessness and an all out passion for satanic power make him
humanity’s worst nightmare.
Beelzebub may actually be the incarnate identity of Satan himself, though there is doubt in demonology circles. He
may be an alternate incarnation of Baal or Bael, or he may be the
original fallen angel (with the distinction that Satan was not the
original). In any event, Beelzebub is largely regarded as the most powerful and dangerous demon there is. Of
the available demons, Baal Zebub (as he is also known), is attributed
to not one but two deadly sins, pride and gluttony, though there is
some argument about this point.
point that is seldom argued is Beezebub’s role as one of the three most
prominent fallen angels, in the company of Lucifer and Leviathan. He is a force among the ruling echelon of Hell and aside his kin, is a plague on humanity and the heavens.
(one of the many spelling variations is yet another King of Hell, some
believe he is a separate incarnation of either Baal or Beelzebub, and
as is the case with the demonic, deception and disguise are par for the

commanding eighty-eight legions of lesser demons, he is said to be one
to offer prize and assistance to those who request it, but usually has
an alterior motive. The story of Beleth may be responsible for the “selling your soul to the devil” idiom.
Leviathan, uncommonly not known by any other name, is said to be Satan himself, though argument exists. Typically
represented as an enormous sea monster or serpent, it is believed that
Leviathan was the serpent to have corrupted Adam and Eve. He stands next to Beelzebub and the famed Lucifer, and rules Hell as one third the almighty triad of Kings.
Lucifer, once translated from the term meaning ‘Morning Star’, is the fallen archangel. He
is the ambitious and power hungry Satan and was the subject of God’s
wrath as he was cast out of heaven with his band of angels in tow. Some
believe that Satan is in fact a representation of Lucifer, Leviathan
and Beezebub, and that Hell hath only one King, and his name is Satan. He commands all in the realm of Hell and is the one demon all humanity agrees is most powerful and most dangerous.

scholar wagers his soul against the devil being able to make Faust wish
to live, even for a moment; using circular logic to trick
Mephistopheles. He is often portrayed as Satan, though is it likely just his image that has been confused among the theology. He is known as a prince of Hell, and therefore may be considered one of the many hands of Satan.
