Historical Background

Arioch is a demon from Paradise Lost by John Milton (1667). There isn't much on this obscure character other than that he is a fallen Angel (not just in general, but from the category Angel, as opposed to Archangels, Thrones, Seraphim, etc). Arioch is supposedly Ancient Hebrew for "a fierce lion" (uncorroborated). Arioch is also an Old Testament figure who was the King of Ellasar, part of the alliance of kingdoms that fought the kings of Sodom & Gomorrah and also with Abraham in the Vale of Siddim. This Arioch was more commonly rendered as Eriaku than Arioch. There was also an Arioch elsewhere in the Old Testament which was the soldier appointed by Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar to put all the wise and learned men of Babylon to death.
