Historical Background

In Christian demonology (Late Medieval- Early Modern European), Orias (sometimes spelled Oriax) is a demon who holds the title and rank of Great Marquis of Hell, commanding 30 legions of demons. He is depicted as a lion with a serpent's tail or as a human with a lion's face holding 2 hissing serpents in his right hand while riding a horse. Sometimes Orias is shown with serpents in place of legs and riding a mule. Orias can teach his conjurers about anything pertaining to the zodiac, the "mansions of the planets" (what we know of in modern astrology as the Astrological Houses), what the planets and aspects mean. He also can teach all forms of divination. He can also transform a person into any shape. He can give favors and dignities to friend and foe alike. Orias 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).
