Historical Background

In Christian demonology (Late Medieval- Early Modern European), Berith is a demon with the title of Great Duke of Hell, commanding 26 legions of demons. He often appeared as a soldier wearing red and a gold crown, riding a red horse, and is sometimes depicted with red skin. He can turn all metals into gold, talk of things from the past, present, and future, as well as give dignities to people and confirm them as well. His power is supposedly stronger in the month of June. He speaks with a subtle, yet clear voice. Some accounts say he is a notorious liar. But, in order to speak with him, a conjurer must wear a silver ring and put it before Berith's face. His name is believed to be a local derivative of Baal in Phoenicia, specifically Beirut (then called Berith), located in modern Lebanon. Berith is 1 of 69 demons listed in the Pseudomonarchia Dæmonum and 1 of 72 listed in the Ars Goetia (the first section of the Lesser Key of Solomon). Wearing all red, it makes sense Square-Enix decided to make Duke Berith a Red Mage.
