Mystery Fire Spirit Amy
By James Donahue
Amy, the fifth-eighth Goetian Spirit, seems to appear as a brilliant flash of light when evoked. Even more mysterious are the three orbs, each connected by a bar, reminding us of the start of a DNA coil. It is from one of these orbs that this light called Amy pours.
For sure, the appearance of Amy was as much a mystery to the old mystics as he is to us. There is very little written about his description other than to say that he always appears as a "flame of fire."
From the Seagate data on demonology we learn that Amy has another ancient name. It is Avnas. He is known as the President of Fire.
According to Seagate, Avnas appears as a pillar of fire and smoke. He seems to be just pure light, or energy.
Seagate says that "those who look into the flames can see the panorama of the history of other dimensions and can sometimes read the events of their own plane and even their own future. At the command of the summoner, Avnas will abandon this insubstantial form and take on the form of a small withered brown man."
There is another odd legend about Amy. It is said that anyone who touches Amy when he appears as a pillar of fire, will not get burned. The flame, instead of hot, feels "cold and dead." In fact, those who touch the flame are said to see their own death.
Johann Wier, in Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, writes in Old English text: “Amy is a great president, and appeareth in a flame of fire, but having taken man’s shape, he maketh one marvelous in astrologie, and in all the liberall sciences. He procureth excellent familiars, he bewraieth treasures preserved by spirits, he hath the government of 36 legions.”
Wiers adds that as a part of the order of angels, Amy hopes after a wait of 1,200 years to return to the seventh throne “which is not credible.”
The website Monsterous.com lists Amy among the ten most dangerous demons. The author writes: “he used his demonic wiles to entrap familiars, to master human sciences and to manipulate the politics of the church. He is bent on taking the throne of Hell and we are warned that he will use whatever means are possible to do so.” The site adds that Amy and his legions of demons generally wage war on humanity.
