One of the Cocytal Seats, Deluded Fallen Angel of the Lord
Once a seraph, Asteroth is now a great duke of Hell, according to The Lemegeton. He discourses willingly on the fall of the angels, but pretends that he himself was exempt from this lapse. In the Greek tongue, he is called Diabolus, and is sometimes used as an analog to Satan himself. Currently, he serves as one of the five seats of the Palace of Transgression, where he fosters the proud fallen under his wing, and schemes to restore the lost glory. He appears as a radiant angel, riding upon a dragon and carrying a viper. According to Grimorium Verum, he has set up his influence in the nation of America. Ashteroth is an unusual and disturbing being, as he claims with much conviction that he is attending to God’s will. Whether or not he actually believes that he has not fallen, he is a disturbed individual who is prone to acts of zeal and rage. As such, it is often best to avoid him. Ashteroth loathes all of the other seats quite openly, dismissing them all as vile and self-serving failures.
