Qalilitu is a succubitic archdemoness who dwells within the blood-seas of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith). She’s an astoundingly brutal and talented astral combatant. She gives powerful aid in rites of malediction, the coercion or slaughter of spirits, the vampyric predation of enemies, and the misdirection via glamour of whoever the magickian needs her to bewitch. Whoever your enemies are, lay them before Qalilitu and watch them be devoured. She’s the deadliest demon I’ve ever worked with.
Qalilitu is a bloodthirsty shapeshifter and a psychopompic seductress. She gives aid and instruction in the use of tarot cards, skrying via black mirror, crystal balls, divination by car sounds, fire skrying, geomancy, and rune casting, and she can powerfully enchant these mechanisms of divination as she specializes in object enchantment. She is deeply knowledgeable concerning runes and can give assistance and gnosis for those aspiring to runecraft.
Qalilitu is a vengeful, sadistic, and wrathful demoness who uses sick and twisted emotions in her spellwork. Nonetheless, she can teach the witch to love someone honestly and correctly.
Qalilitu is pretty much incapable of effecting our world when it is covered by sunlight. While many demons are rightfully recorded to be diurnal or nocturnal by nature, this is extra true for Qalilitu.
Qalilitu presides over affection, sadism, seduction, illusion, surgery, assassination, love, concealment, discretion, stealth, manipulation, and getting away with murder. She empowers the astral double of the sorcerer with claws apt for vampyric feeding and psychic horns which can be used to discern the location of hiding enemies in both the physical and astral planes.
Qalilitu specializes in programming spirits and energy. She can create psychic vampyric egregores which guide blood dolls to the witch and feed upon the blood doll in unison with the witch, sweetening the blood which she is to taste. She can help the witch manipulate her personal magnetism and determine how she comes across to people.
Qalilitu engenders the empowerment of the witch in various ways. She can teach her to shapeshift her astral double into various atavisms– bats and mermaids, for example. She can empower rituals of initiation through the elements of water and earth, the Qliphothic spheres of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith), Nehemoth (Black Earth/Nahema), and Gashkalah (Jupiter/Astaroth), and the planetary spheres of the Earth and the Moon.
The myriad magickal aptitudes of Qalilitu include psychic and sanguine vampyrism, blood magick, protection from necromancy, lethal and non-lethal maledictions, astral combat, opening portals, chakra work, shapeshifting, blood sacrifice, necromancy, Shaktidharma, experiencing transcendental consciousness, opening portals, object enchantment, fixing technology, shielding, raising sacred space, summoning through fire, death magick, and psychometry. She can strengthen the magickian’s astral hearing, astral sight, and telepathy, and she can engender the dissolution of the ego.
Let’s contemplate animal symbolism for a moment, if you will humor my speculation.
Qalilitu generally appears as a mermaid– sometimes apparently floating in the distance or sliding on her tail upright. The mermaid represents a fantastic perversion of humankind’s evolutionary development– while the frog, as an amphibian, represents an intermediate evolutionary stage during which our species evolved to leave the waters for land, the mermaid harkens to a dark twist in humankind’s evolution. It’s an offshoot of our species adapted to return to the primal depths we have learned to dread. The mermaid is the human which has transgressed the boundaries of natural law to reintegrate primal characteristics we had thought lost to time.
As a hybrid species, the mermaid represents the hidden realities which negate the systems of categorization we use to “understand” life– the forgotten chaos which ushers in the blasphemous truth that we do not understand nature at all and that our idea of our place in this world in founded upon our ignorance. I mentioned Qalilitu imparting the atavism of the bat– like the mermaid, the bat is between categories, a mammal and bird simultaneously– a totem of liminality.
As far as I am aware, the first place Qalilitu was written about was a journal called Qliphoth Opus III by Black Tower Publishing in an article by Daemon Barzai. Barzai describes her as follows:
She appears as half-woman, half fish. Her eyes are completely white, and she has a fiery third eye on her forehead. She has wild reddish hair and very sharp teeth. It’s frequent to have visions about underwater temples, filled with skulls and bones that belonged to her previous victims… She doesn’t speak, but instead she is able to communicate telepathically.
If the depths of the sea represent the subconscious, these underwater temples might signify the horrific and primal religious acts unconsciously retained in our genetic memory. Since one of the most well-known attributes of Gamaliel is the coming-into-awareness of subconscious desires and urges, this would make sense.
When Qalilitu manifests around me in person, she usually appears as a nine-foot-tall mermaid made of shadow with two white eyes missing pupils. When she manifests in a fully human form, she appears as a Caucasian standing at about five-foot-seven with long, straight black hair. She’s in incredible physical shape too– she has incredibly strong abs and what not. Her face seems almost identical to the face of Amy/Avnas in Avnas’s female form (see my article), save that Avnas’s female form has snow-white skin and completely red eyes.
One forum user reported seeing Qalilitu appear “like Hecate with snake eyes.”
