Another Strange Spirit
In an attempt to describe Valefor, the old magickians said he
looked like a lion with the head of an ass.
But Aaron C. Donahue's remote viewed drawing of this strange spirit doesn't make him look that way at all. Valefor, in
Donahue's mind, looks somewhat like an animal because he stands on four legs, but he has a large head, small eyes, and a long
flowing beard. If you look closely, the drawing shows a space ship in the distance.
Like the other so-called demons, Valefor is an alien.
He has been considered among the "lesser" demons over the years,
and consequently little has been written about Valefor. Yet he was chosen by Solomon from among the thousands, if not millions
of demons to be included in the Goetian list of 72 special spirits. Thus he obviously has qualities to be considered by the
One old book said Valefor has been called numerous other names,
including Valafar, Valefar, and Malaphar. He is a duke that governs 10 legions of spirits.
Johann Wier, who seemed to view this spirit as an evil trickster,
wrote that Valefor comes forth "in the shape of a lion and the head of a (thief), he is verie familiar with them to whom he
maketh himself acquainted, till he hath brought them to the gallowes."
Seagrave writes that Valefor "has a sharp, braying voice and an
unpleasant manner," and is skilled in theft.
"Valefor will always counsel theft even where it involves stealing
from companions and friends. He cannot be broken of that habit, no matter how he is bound. His advice will tend to be persuasive,"
the Seagrave report states.
