Andras Comes Up Swinging
When evoked, this spirit came up with his sword in hand, in a battle stance. Andras, who looks more
like an insect than the angelic appearing entity the old magickians described, does not seem to be a being I would want to
meet on a battlefield. Or a dark alley.
The mystics said Andras "appears as an angel with a raven head." The only thing slightly angelic
about this Goetian Spirit is that he has wings. His head does not seem to look like that of a bird, but then to each their
own. It was said he always rode a wolf and carried a sword in his right hand.
On his website, Donahue writes that Andras has a black face, and was carrying some kind of weapon,
although it is not described by the drawing or by Donahue.
Well over a century ago, Collin de Plancy wrote that Andras rides a black wolf and has the head
of an owl.
If you don't believe me that Andras is a mean spirit, read the following words, penned by S. L.
MacGregor Mathers: "Andras sows discord and may slay the invoker and his fellows.
I suspect this is why there is so little known about Andras. There were few magickians who evoked
him and lived to tell about it. Fortunately, Donahue was one of them.
