Rovone - Spirit Of Political Doubletalk

By James Donahue

Yet another revelation of the Goetia spirits is Rovone, a distorted "monster" figure said to magically give politicians, salesmen and carnival pitch men golden words that make others believe in them.

Whether it’s snake oil or a political promise, the huckster is believed to draw his talents on the charm of this strange demon, the twenty-seventh of the Goetia spirits once captured by Solomon.

First impressions when you gaze upon the drawing of Rovone is that of a wrapped mummy with a pale, grotesque face exposed.

Most troublesome, even from the simplicity of the sketch, is the gaze of the single eye, and the twisted lips, suggesting an impish grin. As if the demon is enjoying his exposure to the world after thousands of years in darkness.

Notice too the suggestion of a shadow in the drawing. As if this monster can in some way cloud the minds of those it touches.

"Ronove is thought to be associated with rhetoric and we believe that it may be, at least in part, true.

"It is interesting to note that while attending an in-house program at The Monroe Institute, I met and spoke with a man who had recently been to dinner with former President Bush at the White House," one observer said.

"There he clairvoyantly noticed a shadowed figure that resembled a misshapen man or "monster" standing near the President. As I listened to this odd story, I felt somewhat convinced although deeply skeptical.

"Years later this image of a misshapen man appeared to me while (out of the body) looking over former President Clinton. It is not unusual to find principalities and other forms of energy within the 'astral' although this one image is for me novel being that those people independent of me are also 'seeing' the image similarly described."

A similar figure, a strange man with an unusually pale face, stood just behind President Barack Obama during his inauguration. He was located just far enough off that most photographs of the event failed to include this figure. Video scans, however, captured him clearly.

Are these strange beings the demon Ronove in disguise? Where else would we expect to find an entity skilled in both rhetoric and political persuasion busy doing what he does best.

Ronove's rank is Earl, and he governs nineteen legions of demons.
