Ralasan/Basmijael is the counterpart of Lilith’s daughter Qalilitu. He’s a Sovereign Archduke under Amaimon who is attributed to Sagittarius. He is highly knowledgable, wise, and articulate, and is sometimes eager to impress the operator (which I have never seen him fail to do). Despite this trait, it is extremely uncommon for him to act clingy with humans.

The only book wherein he is recorded, being Goetic Evocation by Steve Savedow, documents a coercive evocation of Basmijael. After Basmijael gives a far more informative response than expected or necessary, whereby he impresses the operator, he says that he will teach the operator if he is released from bondage. After the operator refuses and rebukes Basmijael, the demon refuses to be of any service and sticks around in the operator’s residence for days to be troublesome out of spite. With this said, I have found Basmijael to be very kind.

Basmijael can bring about many different transformations of the soul, alchemically refining it through the power of Venus Illegetima, preparing one for advanced necromantic operations and encounters and thus preparing one to take up the office of psychopomp and medium. He can give the celebrant power over the art of sorcery and impart unorthodox but efficacious techniques and tips for evocation. He can animate corpses and gather groups of animated corpses. Basmijael can attend to material/monetary concerns and cause persons to fall in love. He can bestow eloquence unto the celebrant, especially eloquence in speech.

While being aligned with the Infernal Divine and being mostly demonic in nature, Basmijael is a fallen angel.

Ralasan/Basmijael can give aid in matters of philosophy, welding, math, psychology, biology, automobile mechanics, and philosophy. He can improve both long-term and short-term memory, get you laid, and He can give aid in death curses, vampyric execration, healing spells, shadowmancy, the pursuit of past life gnosis, all chakra work, mind tricks, legal issues, money spells, and the improvement of one’s natural psychic defenses. He is also knowledgeable regarding the Eleusinian Mysteries.

Ralasan can teach the sorceress to shapeshift her astral double into a bat, dragon, or ghoul. He can alleviate addiction, mental barriers, insecurity, and digestive problems. He can impart maturity and cause someone to lose all their friends. He can teach one to interpret or become lucid in dreams.

Basmijael can impart teachings about necromancy and the secrets of nature. His guidance is apt for destructive curses or binding one’s enemy as well as fortifying a location against intrusion (physical or astral). He can teach knot/rope magick and strengthen the witch’s focus. He can bind, coerce, exorcise, or devour ghosts.

A Cautionary Tale for Polytheists: Lilith, Ardat-Lili, Lillake, and More

It is widely accepted amongst Satanists and related black magickians that Lilith originates in Sumerian lore as Lilitu, and that Ardat-Lili and Kiskil-Lillake are names of hers as well. A recent ritual by the Temple of the Ascending Flame makes use of a meditative mantra for Lilith which incorporates this name: “Lilith, Layil, Ardat-Lili, Laylah” (Layil and Laylah are Hebrew and Arabic feminine nouns which translate to “noun”). Since Irdu-Lili is listed as having been the consort of Ardat-Lili, modern sorcerers have concluded that Irdu-Lili is a name for Samael.

The name “Ardat-Lili” is translated as “handmaid of Lilitu.” The word “Ardatu” means ‘young girl [of marrying age]’ and was often used in reference to prostitutes, so Ardat-Lili is best identified with Na’amah (Lilith’s daughter or sister) rather than Lilith. Early texts concerning demons posited the existence of a Lilith Savta [Lilith the Elder] and Lilith Ulemta [Lilith the Younger], the latter of which is considered the wife of Asmodeus. Since Irdu-Lili is allegedly Ardat-Lili’s consort, Irdu-Lili is best equated to Asmodeus (if not Tubal-Cain), the incubus son of Lilith, rather than Samael.

The moniker Lilith Ulemta is generally translated as “Lilith the Younger” for the sake of simplicity, but a more accurate translation is “Lilith the Maid”, whereas Lilith Savta means “Lilith the Matron.” As far as I am aware, it is unanimously accepted that Lilith Ulemta is Na’amah, so the similarity of that title to “Handmaiden of Lilitu” appears significant.

The fourth and final proto-succubus recorded in Sumerian myth was Lillu, the father of Gilgamesh. The only demon I can think of this being is Lilith’s other son, Ornias the incubus prince of Gamaliel. This, however, like the rest of the correspondences I’m drawing, is tenative, and personal gnosis should precede the use of these names in ritual.

There is an entity by the name of Kis-sikil-lil-la-ke who appeared in an Akkadian addenum to Gilgamesh’s story dwelling within a ten-year-old tree which was sacred to Inanna along with a serpent and a Zu bird. Gilgamesh smites the serpent, whereupon the Kis-sikil-lil-la-ke destroys its own home and runs away. The “lil-la-ke” part of the name translates to mean “water spirit”, but is also interpreted as having been an owl. Kis-kil-lil-la-ke and other variations on the name have appeared in traditional rituals to Lilith.

Since Lilith is known to manifest in various aspects which all relate to different elements, the “water spirit” part is hardly helpful, but the owl aspect is related to Lilith, and since Lilith is said to be the serpent of the Garden of Eden, the symbolism of a serpent intruding in a sacred tree may be relevant. It may also be significant that pseudepigraphal Hebrew texts regarding the end times depict a giant bird named Ziz, the apocalyptic beast of the air, where Behemoth is the apocalyptic beast of the earth and Leviathan is the apocalyptic beast of the sea.

According to Wikipedia, a couple more recent scholars have disputed the attribution of Kis-sikil-lil-la-ke to Lilith, so I leave the reader to form her own conclusions.

Even if the reader discards this list of Sumerian creatures from her memory completely, never seeks gnosis regarding the truth behind the matter, and never makes use of any of these names in spiritual workings, this essay will still have served its primary purpose.

This article is a warning to those who are too quick to identify their deities with entities from other pantheons. Things are not always as simplistic as they seem. For an example of how I have examined the relationship between Abaddon, Apollo, and Sauroctonos, see the following article:

Invocation of Lucifuge Rofocale


(Face North, the direction of Saturn)

Venire – Rofocale Rex Noctifer (x2)
[Come– Rofocale the Night-Bearing King]

Lucerifuge, Lucifage, Lucifugus Rofocalus (x9)

I call unto the hidden hand of the diametric alliance between the bearer of light and the bearer of its shadow so that I might become subject to and recipient of a Cronian enlightenment. The esoterica of the red desert and Hell is observed by the sagacious Saturnian Horned God who presides over its sempiternal biosphere. I call out to Rofocal, the Black Lord of the Red Desert.

Change me.

Agios ischyros Lucifuge (x2)
[Numinous and mighty is Lucifuge]

Baruch ha-Lucifuge Rofocale (x9)
[Blessed is Lucifuge Rofocale]

Venire – Rofocale Rex Noctifer (x2)

Oh Lucifugus Rofocalus, to whom the Black Sun and wild rose are sacred. The immortal nigrescent birds of prey which environ your province are the emissaries of a most worthy god. You who are the Patron of black magickians and fledgling Demonolaters, I call to make you my guide and to make myself your vessel so that I might become forever transmogrified through the sulphurous alchemy of Sitra Achara’s forbidden and Cronian Qlipha. Oh, hail unto Lucifuge.

Aperiatur Acharayim, et germinet Lucerifuge (x11)
[Open the Backwards Tree, and bring forth Lucerifuge]

Eyen tasa valocur Lucifuge Rofocale (x11)
[Lucifuge’s “enn” or summoning mantra]

Incantation to Lilith to Banish Jehovah

Several Satanists who practice the Craft surrounded by or prayed for by Christians have noticed celestial forces inhibiting or weakening their rituals. This is an incantation to Lilith to protect the ritual from external interference from the god of Abraham and any of the spirits serving him– saints, angels, djinn that follow Allah, etc. Magickal chants were incorporated from several existing traditions and appear alongside some of the chants I made personally:

Agios Tzaphoni Ama Lilith Layilil (x6)

Ave Lilu Lilitu. Io Lilith. Domina Noctis.

Ama Lilith Layil Rimog Lilith

Lilit Malkah ha’Shadim.

Renich Viasa Avage Lilith Lirach.

I call upon Lilith, the Storm-Goddess of the Black Moon who manifests as Temptress and Destroyer and Vampyre against the worm called Yahweh who pursues my inhibition. I shall become as a blight unto the insufferable mongrels indentured to Jehovah.

I spurn the intrusion of the false god who in desperation strives for acceptance from the masses and I rebuke the messianic cunt ape Jesus. Death to the shitstain emissaries of his embarrassment – they are like unto a blight upon the children of Cain.

Agios o Lilith Regina Gamaliel!


Ahi Hay Lilith!

Invocation of Adrammelech

Agios o Adar-Malik (x3)
[Numinous is Adra-Malik]

The Demonic Sphere of Acausal Venom which is home to deathly dragon-winged angels and sulphurous horrific spirits has a black adamantine throne within the cathedral at its epicenter. This is the throne of Adramelech, the Infernal Peacock Magus of the Forbidden Kliffotic Planes. Tonight I seek an audience with him.

Baruch ha-Adramelech, Melech ha-Qlipha ha-Kokab (x7)
[Blessed is Adramelech, King of the Mercurial Qlipha]

The Pansophical Demon-God Adramelech is the Lord of Venom and Flames whose multifarious eyes impart power and awakening to the congregation of the Black Lodge. This, my ritual of union with him, is a step on the infernal evolutionary path that I have chosen as mine.

Agios Adramelech Rex Venenum (x16)
[Numinous Adramelech King of Poison]

Sagacious and mighty demon, your name is Adra-Malik, and I call you into the vessel I AM.

Aperiatur Acharayim, et germinet Adrammelech (x16)

As I have spoken, so let it be done.

Thantifaxath is one of the archdemons of the Tunnels of Set– i.e. the pathways between the ten realms of Hell or the Qliphoth. Despite the fact that it is the first pathway which the practitioner will encounter, it is called either the thirty-second pathway or the twenty-second pathway, depending upon whether or not the numeration includes the ten spheres. It lies between the first two realms of the Qliphoth, which are ruled by Nahema/Na’amah and Lilith.

Thantifaxath’s name means “Great Ghoul”, and the pathway over which he presides is filled with larvae, ghouls, succubi, incubi, and corpse candles which can teach the witch to exchange her carnal inclinations for metaphysical desires. This pathway is essentially held to be the bridge between the causal and the acausal. Perhaps this explains why it is filled with ghosts. This suggests that the pathway and its sentinel is auspicious in operations of necromancy and astral projection.

Linda Falorio, designer of the Shadow Tarot, describes Thantifaxath’s tunnel as follows: “Rising swamp-gas, distorting heat-mirages signify the tunnel’s entrance which exists in the wavering interface between the worlds of inner tellurian space and stellar consciousness. Here all has been arranged for performance of the ancient Elder Rites. Trees of Darkness, cypress swamp, bayous filled with ghouls and larvae of the pit celebrate with choreiform dancing dread Odun, the African Sabbath, Saint John’s Eve, while corpse candles’ phosphorescent glare illumines the gate/mouth/sipapu through which Zangbeto, “people of the night,” Lovecraftian transhuman horrors—the Old Ones—invade our dimension from the Other Side.”

The tunnel of the Great Ghoul lies between the infernal realm of the Black Earth and that of the Black Moon. Empowering oneself through the energies of this pathway can serve to bring about the alchemical process of purification via putrefaction (nigredo/blackening) as well as the attainment of visions and the awakening of one’s psychic senses. The celebrant’s dreams may become (more) spiritually charged as well. This pathway exhibits sanguine and sexual imagery, and the lustful experiences it imparts subject the celebrant to oscillations of pleasure and pain.

Thantifaxath most often appears to me as a bearded, cadaverous spectre with white corpse-flesh, levitating in a black cloak with billowing sleeves. He has alternately appeared to me with charcoal-grey corpse flesh with prominent scarring and long, black fingernails. Either way, his eyes are pure black.

Quoting Falorio again, “Powers we may [attain in the thirty-second tunnel] are the ability to cross dimensions, to bridge boundaries, to link inner and outer, to communicate with denizens of parallel worlds: fairies, yetis, elves. Here is power to understand and to use the raw energy of time inherent in its cycles, and here is the Time Lord’s power to transcend its limitations, to relate to eternal NOW—no “lusting for result.” Here is self-regeneration, as well as regeneration of the energy envelope of Earth, and re-greening of the planet through time-binding stellar winds into the bionic life web.”

Thantifaxath’s specialties are death curses, psychic vampyrism, and sound sorcery. He can be called upon for the causation of bloodshed in mass. He can guide one through the Trans-Qliphothic Labyrinth (extremely dangerous; seek guidance). He can make things go unnoticed or unseen by outside forces, including magickal efforts. He rules the creation and destruction of thoughtforms, which is a very useful trait. He can bring about the alteration of mundane circumstances and nullify previously cast magickal spells by devouring them.

Thantifaxath is knowledgable concerning the Great Work in general and may help one achieve it. He specializes in leadership and can inspire the witch to it as well as advise her regarding it. He can bring about beginnings and endings. He can cause annihilation, bring about completion, and help one start a new life.

Thantifaxath can bring about the alleviation of depression and torpor, and he can help the witch move on or leave the past behind. He is useful in the dissolution of the witch’s false self-image.

An Occultist by the name of Frater 414 performed a series of pathworkings with the sentinels of the Tunnels of Set. When he encountered Thantifaxath, the spirit was warming himself by a fire, and offered the celebrant a seat. Frater 414 recorded the following quotes by Thantifaxath in his experiments with the Tunnels of Set: “I am very old… No one in the kingdom likes me so they make me stay down here… The kingdom needs me because I keep track of time. Without me there is no time and nothing could exist. People do not want to age. They try to stay young. That’s why they don’t like me. Son, on your path, you must be patient. ”Take your time” Do not rush through things just to get them done. They will not be done right and you will accomplish nothing. People think that time is so short that they must rush through everything. That is not true. Do things slowly y and understand all that you do, or do not do them. People also think that time is an illusion. Boy, you are going to die! Maybe not today, maybe not right now, but you will. The time in your current body is limited. So do not be idle and waste time. If time was an illusion, death is an illusion. But death is real or you.” (sic)

The numerical value of Thantifaxath’s name is 172, matching the values of the Hebrew words/phrases for “to rob” (vampyrism?), “golden image” (alchemy?), “half a shekel,” “grapes,” “Kabbalist”, “footprint,” “deceitful/insidious/sly”, “assail insidiously,” “to supplant,” “rear of a troop,” “steep/hilly,” and “follow at the heel.”

Another value is 744, matching the values of the words for “In their burial place,” “dung,” “window,” “when they drew near,” “strife/contention,” and “treading place/stepping place.” . This is also the value of the name Merodach, which is Marduk.

Another value is 1,040. I have found few interesting correspondences for this number, but various Hebrew words for “fat” showed up, as well as a word meaning “closed hand/fist.” The only interesting correspondence was a Hebrew term meaning “third part,” which may have lunar/triple-goddess connotations (the crone, specifically).

Thantifaxath’s attributions are as follows: Grade – Neophyte; Musical Key – B Sharp; Disease – Arterioschlerosis; Force – Restriction and Incarceration; Hebrew Letter – Tau/Tav; Ability – Death Magick and Curses; Planet – Saturn; Constellation – Sagittarius; Element – Earth; Color – Black and Blue; Animal form – Crocodile.

The attribution of Thantifaxath to the crocodile makes abundant sense. After all, the Egyptian underworld was the belly of a crocodile, and the Christoid conception of the Leviathan is an extinct species of fire-breathing crocodiles.

The letter Tau symbolizes a cross, a symbol of liminality and a Roman tool for causing death.

The colors black and blue are attributed also to Odin, a god of the dead, as well as to Satan.
