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.
