Orobas is the son of Moloch, one of Gargophias’s consorts, a sibling of Adrammelech, a close friend of Satan, an emissary of Hecate, a spirit of Satariel, and a Goetic prince. He is a warrior, an initiator, a destroyer, and a harbinger of transformation. He calls unto magickians who are willing to take part in a great spiritual war and he rages against those who transgress against the witch he has chosen to protect.

Orobas told me that he can be hard to work with at times, but that his intentions are good. He is not always patient with beginners, and he describes himself as a spirit whom people probably shouldn’t work with unless they have a decent level of experience under their belts. It is best not to irritate him– he gets frustrated quickly, but he will always come back to a magickian with the correct intention and appropriate veneration.

All this is not to say that he is not loving, caring, nurturing, and generous at times/with certain people. He can be very sweet.

While tradition describes the spirit appearing as a horse, Orobas appeared to me as heavily armored knight with a giant sword. His helmet had a single large horn comparable in shape to that of a unicorn. I also saw him as a great black serpent-dragon without legs and with teeny little wings that do not look like they could support his weight (perhaps they are for gliding or turning in mid-air).

Orobas can make the magickian more powerful and help her focus her life on her true purpose. He can give auspices in writing and other artistic pursuits, including music. He is a great protector and healer, and he is capable of devouring the energy bodies of your enemies if he feels like said enemies deserve it.

Orobas can help the sorceress work with the Black Flame and teach the art of essence draining (eating someone’s Black Flame). He is also knowledgeable regarding vampyrism, necromancy, and the Mysteries of Death.

Orobas can be worked with for combat skills, physical fitness, discipline and warriorhood.  He can impart determination, courage, strength of will, concentration, and writing skills. He is knowledgeable regarding physical fitness, nutrition, martial arts, the science of physical pain, the dilemmas of trans people, and the human psyche in general.

Orobas can fortify the witch’s astral double and give auspices in meditation and Kundalini work. The sorceress may learn spellcraft, planetary magick, elemental magick, and many different meditative techniques from this spirit.

Orobas can predict the future, impart status and promotions, teach about the creation of the universe and the Numinous, bring about communion with the dead, control people, stop gossip or slander, grant recognition, and gain the favor of friends and foes.

While many demons are involved in the evolution of humanity and human society, Orobas’s only real role in this endeavor is taking given witches and witches-to-be under his wing.

The numerical value of Orobas’s name in Hebrew Gematria is 216, which is the product of 6 x 6 x 6. 216 is also the value of the Aramaic word for Lion and the Hebrew name of the Martial Sephira. Hebrew words and phrases matching the value of 216 include “Holy of Holies,” “Innermost Sanctum of the Temple,” “Fear/Terror,” “On God’s Order,” “Innocency,” and “(Necklace) Chain.”

18 is the value of Orobas’s name in English Gematria. According to Gematria and the Tanakh by Brian Pivik, 18 is the number of the Veils of Ain and corresponds to a tarot card called the Moon.
