One of the fallen angels. His name means "creature of judgement", and is derived from "ashma daeva" (Persian). The origins of this angel are actually Persian, rather than Hebrew, although he has been incorporated into Hebrew lore as an evil spirit. He is purported to have made Noah drunk, to have slain the seven bridegrooms of Sarah, and to have been defeated by Raphael and banished to Upper Egypt. Asmodeus rules over gaming houses, and tricks those who invoke him while wearing a head covering. In various sources, Asmodeus appears as a romantic figure, as the son of Adam and Lilith, and as the son of Tubal-Cain and his sister Naamah. According to Solomonic legend, he is Saturn. He has been credited with the creation of carousels, music, dancing, drama, and "all the new French fashions".
