Lion-Shaped Demon
   FALLEN ANGEL in the shape of a roaring lion, who commands LEGIONs of DEMONs. In the Testament of Solomon, the Lion-Shaped Demon appears before King SOLOMON and says he cannot be bound. He sneaks up to people who are lying in their sickbeds and makes it impossible for them to recover. He says he is of Arab descent.
   Solomon invokes the name of “the great God Most High” and forces the demon to reveal that he is thwarted by Emmanuel (JESUS). Emmanuel has bound the LionShaped Demon and his legions and will torture them by driving them off a cliff into water. Solomon sentences the demon’s legions to carrying woods from a grove of trees and sentences the Lion-Shaped Demon to use his claws to saw it into kindling and throw it under a perpetually burning kiln.
