Also known as Eligor, or Eligos.
According to pre Judeo-Christian theology, a demon of the superior order, conjured for his power to foretell the future and to provide military aid and advice. He is shown either in the form of a very handsome knight bearing a lance and a standard, or as a ghostly specter, sometimes riding a winged horse.
Sixty of the infernal legions are at Abigor's command, which he directs from atop his winged horse. He is also known as the "Grand Duke of Hades," a great manipulator of men, inducing them to acts of murder and genocide.
"Abigor presents himself as a horseman carrying a lance, a standard, or a scepter. He commands sixty legions and is a demon of high degree, grand duke of hell. He knows of the secrets of warfare, of the future, and can instruct leaders of the ways to earn their soldiers' respect." Collin de Plancy ― 'Dictionnaire Infernal', 1863.
If a human prince or general were to offer up his soul to Abigor, this demon would buy it with secrets of how to win battles and conquer enemies. These secrets were said to often have led to the bloodiest victories in human history.
Johann Wier also mentions Abigor in his 'De Praestigiis Daemonum' (1563):
"Eligor, alias Abigor, is a great duke, and appeereth as a goodlie [handsome] knight, carrieng a lance, an ensigne, and a scepter: he answereth fullie of things hidden, and of warres, and how souldiers should meete: he knoweth things to come, and procureth the favour of lords and knights, governing sixtie legions of divels."
In Mathers 'The Goetia, The Key of Solomon the King', Abigor is as well profiled:
"Eligos is the Fifteenth Spirit listed in the Goetia, and governs 60 Legions. He appears as a knight carrying a lance, an ensign, and a serpent. He knows of future events, hidden things, wars, and can cause Lords and members of the upperclass to fall in love."
