A demon cited in the Grand Grimoire; head of the infernal
powers. It is with him that Johan Weyer commenced his inventory
of the famous Pseudonomarchia Daemonum. He alluded to
Bael as the first monarch of hell and said that his estates are situated
on the eastern regions thereof. He had three heads, that
of a crab, a cat, and a man. Sixty-six legions obey him.
