You guys! I reached 666 followers and in honour of this special number let me introduce to you a bunch of my favourite devils, demons and wicked creatures from literature and movies:

✣ Mephistopheles [a main character in the ”Faust” legend, from which many writers and musicians as Goethe and Boito took inspiration]

✣ Asmodeus [from “The Devil on Two Sticks” by Alain R. Le Sage - 1841]

✣ Old Scratch or The Black Man [from “The Devil and Tom Walker”, a short story by Washington Irwing - 1824]

✣ Woland [from “The Master and Margarita” by Mikhail Bulgakov - 1967]  

 Matilda or Rosario [from the 1796 gothic novel “The Monk” by Matthew Gregory Lewis]

 Black Phillip [from the movie “The Witch” written and directed by Robert Eggers - 2015]

 Zarenyia [my damn favourite one, from the novel “A Long Spoon” by Jonathan L. Howard - wearing her angora sweater, a gift from Johannes Cabal (a necromancer of some little infamy)]

 Declan Gunn or Lucifer [from “I, Lucifer” by Glen Duncan - 2003]

 Hastur [from “The King in Yellow” by Robert W. Chambers and appeared in other Cthulhu mythos by Ambrose Bierce and Lovecraft]

 John Melmoth or Melmoth the Wanderer [from the marvellous 1820 gothic novel “Memoth the Wanderer” by Charles Robert Maturin]

 The Devil [from “Peter Schlemihl’s Miraculous Story” by Adelbert von Chamisso - 1814]

 A. J. Crowley [an angel who did not so much fall as saunter vaguely downwards, from “Good Omens” an amazing book by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman]

 Lilith [a III century A.D. demoness from the Babylonian Talmud and some Jewish legends - she refused to become subservient to Adam so she left the Garden of Eden (you go girl!)]

Thank you so much, guys!
