According to the demonologist Johan Weyer, Bitru is a
great Prince of Hell, also known as Sytry. He appeared in the
form of a leopard with the wings of a griffin. But whenever he
adopted a human appearance, it was invariably one of great
beauty. It is he who awakes lust in the human heart. Seventy legions
obey his commands.
