The modern illustration of the demon Andras

from Collin de Plancy's Dictionnaire Infernal

Andras' seal

In demonology, Andras is a Great Marquis (a Prince to other authors) of Jinnestan.

Alternatively named Andra-inanyas.


Andras has under his command thirty legions of demons whose only directive is to hunt and kill men. He is seconded by his henchman Flauros. He is the 63rd of the 72 spirits of Solomon.


Andras appears with a winged angel’s body and the head of an owl or raven, riding upon a strong black wolf and wielding a sharp and bright sword.


Andras was responsible for sowing discord and for this reason was allegedly summoned quite often by military leaders, to use his abilities to incite wars that last for decades, redefining peoples and continents. In addition, due to the subtle nature of his work, Andras was supposedly extremely difficult to detect. Moreover Andras was considered to be a highly dangerous demon, who could kill the conjuring magician and his assistants if precautions were not taken. A misstep outside the magical protective circle could mean instant death for the conjuretors.
