Beleth is named after a demon listed in the Ars Goetia and many other traditional books of demonology such as the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum. Beleth is described as a king of hell who has 85 legions of demons under his command. He rides a pale horse and looks fierce in order to frighten the conjurer to see if they are courageous.
