Anton Szandor LaVey, the former High Priest of the Church of Satan, listed the most powerful of Lucifer’s minions in his notorious book, The Satanic Bible.
Here are the 13 of the worst:
Asmodeus: Asmodeus is also referred to as one of the seven princes of hell. Each of the seven princes represent one of the seven deadly sins(Pride, Lust, Envy, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Wrath). Asmodeus is the devil of lust and influences people’s sexual desires. It is believed that whoever falls to Asmodeus’ traps will be sentenced in second level of hell for an eternity.
Astaroth: Astaroth is depicted as a nude man with feathered wings, holding a snake in one hand, and riding a beast having dragon-like wings and a serpent-like tail. He seduces a man by laziness, vanity and rationalized philosophies. Astaroth is the prince of accusers and inquisitors
Azazel: The demon who taught man to make weapons of war and introduced women to cosmetics. Azazel is the chief of Se’irim or goat-demons, who haunted the desert and most primitive Semitic tribes offered sacrifices to him,
Balaam: Hebrew devil of avarice and greed. Balaam is a powerful king of Hell commanding over 40 legions of demons. He can act as a fortune teller and can answer any question relating to past, present and future. Balaam can also make men invisible and witty. Balaam, in art, is depicted as three-headed, one head being of bull, second of a man, and third of a ram. He has flaming eyes and the tail of a serpent. He carries a hawk on his fist and rides a strong bear.
Devil said to take the form of a monstrous elephant. From the early 17th century, there have been many attempts to identify Behemoth. Some scholars have seen him as a real creature, usually the hippopotamus, although occasionally as the elephant, the crocodile, or the water buffalo.
Disgusting and repulsive Lord of the Flies. He was formerly a leading heavenly angel associated with the star Hesperus(Greek name for the planet Venus). Beelzebub, Lucifer, and Astaroth form an unholy trinity, which are very powerful to influence over a man. He is claimed to be as prince of hell for having control over one of the deadly sins(either pride or gluttony).
Eons-old Celtic god of Hell. According to Christian demonology, Baal was ranked as the first and principal king in Hell. But according to some authors Baal is Duke, with sixty-six legions of demons under his command. He can make people invisible, wise and he speaks hoarsely and carries ashes in his pocket. Baal is depicted as three- headed, heads of a cat, man and toad on spider legs.
Demon who rides a black horse and rules over spirits of Africa. He possesses the abilities of locating lost/hidden treasures teaching trivium(grammar, logic and rhetoric) and making a man into a warrior of his own likeness. He holds the rank of marquis, and is served by 20 legions.
Leviathan: Leviathan is the one of the seven princes of hell having power over the one of the deadly sin (envy). He is depicted as a sea monster and gatekeeper of Hell.
Damballa Evil Voodoo serpent god. In voodoo, Damballa is most important of all Ioa. He is an ancient Sky god and creator of all life. Damballa rules the mind, intellect, and cosmic equilibrium.
Philistine avenging devil of the sea. Dagon was originally a fertility god to Hebrews.
King of the Ghouls and chief consort of Hecate, the Greek goddess of the underworld and witchcraft. Mormo was a spirit who bit bad children. The name was also used to signify a female vampire in stories told to Greek children by their nurses to keep them from misbehaving.
