Alocer
According to Johan Weyer, Alocer is a powerful demon,
Grand Duke of Hades. He appears in the shape of a knight
mounted on an enormous horse. His face has leonine characteristics;
he has a ruddy complexion and burning eyes, and
speaks with much gravity. He is said to give family happiness
to those whom he takes under his protection and to teach astronomy
and liberal arts. Thirty-six legions are controlled by
him.
