Historical Background

In Christian demonology (Late Medieval- Early Modern European), Decarabia (also spelled Carabia) is a demon with the title of Great Marquis of Hell (though he has no title in Pseudomonarchia Dæmonum), commanding 30 legions of demons. Decarabia appears as a pentagram star, though can turn into a man should the conjurer request it. He can talk of the virtues of all herbs and precious stones. He can also transform into any type of bird and fly and sing in the manner they do, should the conjurer request. Decarabia 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). Decarbia is a Bard NM, which seems a good choice given the ability of this demon to sing like any bird in the world.
