According to demonologist Johan Weyer, Malphas was
grand president of the infernal regions, where he appeared in
the shape of a crow. When he appeared in human form, he had
a very raucous voice. He built impregnable citadels and towers,
overthrew the ramparts of his enemies, found good workmen,
gave familiar spirits, received sacrifices, and deceived the sacrificers.
Forty infernal legions were under his command.
