According to Wierus, Bael is first king of hell with estates in the East. He has three heads: a toad, a man, and a cat. He also speaks in a raucous, but well formed voice, and commands 66 legions.
Bael teaches the art of invisibility, and may be the equivalent of Baal.
Pseudomonarchia daemonum – Johann Wier (1583) (quoted) Baell – Their first and principal king (which is of the power of the east) is called BaÃ«ll who when he is conjured up, appeareth with three heads;
- the first, like a tode;
- the second, like a man;
- the third, like a cat.
He speaketh with a hoarse voice, he maketh a man go invisible [and wise], he hath under his obedience and rule sixty and six legions of devils.
Goetia – S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1904) (quoted)Bael’s Goetic seal. The First Principal Spirit is a King ruling in the East, called Bael. He maketh thee to go Invisible. He ruleth over 66 Legions of Infernal Spirits. He appeareth in divers shapes, sometimes like a Cat, sometimes like a Toad, and sometimes like a Man, and sometimes all these forms at once.
He speaketh hoarsely. This is his character which is used to be worn as a Lamen before him who calleth him forth, or else he will not do thee homage.
