Art Source:

Focalor can further whatever manner of alchemical self-transformation the witch has already undertaken, and he teaches the witch to ignore the negative opinions of others and avoid paranoia. Focalor can destroy, drown, and otherwise murder targets. Focalor has power over the winds and seas.

According to Rufus Opus, Focalor is a “good spirit to be friends with if you’re in the military, especially the Navy. Note that his office is to kill men. That doesn’t mean he kills who you want him to necessarily; it means he has authority over those destined to die.”

Opus warns that it is a bad idea to enlist Focalor to kill people, alleging that affairs never go as planned/expected. If this is true, it is likely that Focalor often uses assassination requests as an opportunity to teach the summoner a lesson.

Focalor makes one smooth in seduction and witty in conversation. He teaches the witch to avoid shady characters and convince/manipulate those characters into losing interest in her. Focalor teaches the wizard to talk people down when they are close to taking a negative course of action, such as self-harm or combat. He help the witch cast the most efficacious of circles and overthrow ships.

He causes death, gives protection, aids in malediction, and quickly resolves regrettable circumstances and happenings. He is powerful in execration and dream magick, and he causes tempests and killing.

hart-in-a-storm-furfur1Above: GAR or G.A. Rosenberg’s Empowered Depiction of Furfur

According to someone named High Priest Joseph, “[Furfur] was the most beautiful Demoness I have seen yet. She had white silkly wings, blonde curley hair and large blue eyes.”

While the traditional lore claims that Furfur appears as a deer with a fiery tail, Goetic demons don’t adopt their traditional appearances unless the magickian expects them to. Demons choose their appearance in order to communicate something to you about themselves, and ancient symbolism won’t cut it for us. He appeared to my newest apprentice as a galloping black horse– faceless, but with a flaming mane.

Asha’Shedim warns that Furfur can destroy electronic devices in rooms wherein he is called upon. While I have never witnessed this nor seen it described elsewhere, it is worth mentioning nonetheless.


Furfur can teach the art of astral shapeshifting and grant the witch protection from predators. Furfur makes the witch smooth and skillful in spewing heresy as well as in delineating whatever else does not want to be heard. Furfur teaches the witch to seduce and mislead other people, and he gives assistance in the pursuit of monetary gain to the point of wealth. He can wreak havoc on one’s introspection and thus help destroy the ego.

Furfur rules over introspection, transformation, attraction, the carnal ego, and aggressive behavior. Furfur is the lord of storms and he incites romantic affection. Sometimes he inspires sexual deviancy amongst his victims for his own pleasure. He teaches the witch concerning matters of divinity and esotericism and he can aid in the dissolution of the ego. He helps raise energy and aids in fire skrying. He reveals the secret thoughts of others. He brings about all forms of storms and imparts a love of combat.

According to Rufus Opus, Furfur reignites affection in relationships where it has ran out. “He helps couples see the things about each other they love and admire, and brings peace and healing to long-standing emotional wounds. Perhaps not coincidentally at all, he is also responsible for thunder and lightning, blasts and tempestuous storms.”

Traditional Goetic lore states that Furfur speaks dishonestly, but S. Conolly disagrees. I can’t remember Furfur lying to me either, but I have had spirits attempt to trick me (in the hopes that I see through it) to test me, train me, or teach me something. I’m inclined to believe that Furfur misleads to people who evoke him by force to get back at them.

Oh wait, Furfur’s supposed to teach the celebrant about divinity. I’ll bet that’s why he’s considered a liar– the knowledge he imparts contradicts canonical scripture.

Magickian: I wish to know the secret of how Jehovah created this universe.
Furfur: He had help– the creation of the Cosmos was a group effort. Deities from multifarious cultural paradigms collaborated to accomplish it.
Magickian: That you would lie against the Word was foretold by the grimoires.
Furfur: I’m going to get you raped if you keep talking to me like that.

Alright, alright, now I’m done.
