Original Text from the Ars Goetia:
The Fifty-second Spirit is Alloces or Alocas. He is a Duke, Great, Mighty, and Strong, appearing in the Form of a Soldier riding upon a Great Horse. His Face is like that of a Lion, very Red, and having Flaming Eyes. His Speech is hoarse and very big. His Office is to teach the Art of Astronomy, and all the Liberal Sciences. He bringeth unto the Good Familiars; also he ruleth over 36 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, which, etc.
Other citations of note:
He teaches and instructs in the art of sciences and brings very good familiars to who seeks to learn the use of planets in one’s initiation. He rules over 36 Legions and may cause the sorcerers enemy to grow paranoid with the movements of the moon if the magician wishes.
From the Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford
Invoke for helping one’s focus, to establish clear thinking and boundaries, and to build foundations. Some believe Alloces to be a daemon of clay and metals artists along with architects.
From the Daemonolatry Goetia by S. Connolly
Alloces is a demon who is very focused on hard work and crafting purposes, mostly towards the arts. He works strongly with craftsmen and offers guidance and help in those places primarily, along with helping clear your mind. He also goes by Alocas, and belongs to no other hierarchies.
Demonic Ranking System: Helpful and Not Scary
Maybe it’s because Alloces doesn’t really apply to me at all, but I just can’t see this guy being very tough or scary to deal with. In fact, he seems like a pretty normal guy and doesn’t sound at all like he’d cause much trouble. I mean, except for possibly muddling your mind and making your work suck if you piss him off. But other than that? Go for it if you’re artsy and need a good muse. He seems like he’d be a good help.
