Bio:

The book is bound by black leather with goldleaf on the cover of a magic circle. Its lightly grey pages bear ink that is not very old. The book was probably recently scribed. It is a grimoire containing a list of demons and other infernal outsiders, and the appropriate hours and rituals to summon them.

It contains conjurations, invocations and curses to summon and constrain spirits of the dead and demons in order to force them to do the operator’s will. It also describes how to find stolen items, become invisible, gain favour and love, and so on. It also describes various purifications which the operator (termed “exorcist”) should undergo, how they should clothe themselves, how the magical implements used in their operations should be constructed, and what animal sacrifices should be made to the spirits.

It does not name the demonic monarchs themselves, but minor nobles of the infernal hierarchy and some the lesser spirits who attend their courts.

It is probably the personal copy of the Faceless Man, brought by him when he came to this labyrinth.
