wiki wrote:Duke Bathin
Bathin is a Duke (Great Duke according to Pseudomonarchia Daemonum) of Hell, who has under his command thirty legions of demons. He knows the virtues of precious stones and herbs, and can bring men suddenly from one country to another. He helps one attain astral projection, and takes you where ever you want to go.
He is depicted as a strong man with the tail of a serpent, riding a pale horse.
some other thing wrote:His name could derive from Latin 'batha', Ethiopian (it was believed that demons could appear in the form of a black man) or from Latin 'mathios', an undetermined herb that was believed could keep serpents young.
I think I might go with the herb thing...

Got my work cut out for me.
some quick silhouette things, I haven't decided whether Bathin's tail of a serpent is more of a lizard tail from the base of the spine, or a whole lower body snake doodah like the middle one. DECISIONS
