Haures Hangs Like A Bat
By James Donahue
Another unexpected surprise came with the evocation of the Goetia Spirit Haures. The old masters wrote that he always appeared in the form of a big cat but this time he was very different.
The magician wrote: "A human-like figure falls into the circle from the temple ceiling above and behind me. Bright red flames emit from the eyes of Haures." This sixty-fourth spirit looks very un-human. He is distinctly alien, almost skeletal, with flaming red eyes.
Those eyes have been catching the attention of magicians for centuries.
S. L. MacGregor Mathers wrote that Haures "appears as a leopard but will take human shape with fiery eyes upon command."
Johann Wier wrote over 400 years ago that Haures "sheweth a terrible countenance, and fierie eies (sic)."
Wier said Haures "gladlie talketh of the divinitie, and of the creation of the world, and of the fall (sic)." If asked, this spirit will burn and destroy all enemies of the one who conjures him.
His rank is Duke and he commands 36 legions of demonic spirits.
