- DEMON among the 31 AERIAL SPIRITS OF SOLOMON. Padiel is the second-ranking spirit of the east and rules the south as king. He governs 10,000 spirits by day and 20,000 by night, and several thousand more in addition. The lower spirits can be trusted. According to Solomon, the only powers they have are those conferred upon them by Padiel. They can be conjured only with Padiel’s permission.
