According to Johan Weyer, a great and terrible demon
monarch among the infernal powers. He has three heads, those
of a bull, a man, and a ram. Joined to these by the tail is a serpent,
the eyes of which burn with fire. Balan rides an enormous
bear. He commands 40 of the infernal legions and rules over
finesse, ruses, and middle courses.
