Alleborith: A demon named in the Testament of Solomon, Alleborith is one of thirty-six demons associated with the decans of the zodiac. Alleborith is said to appear with the head of a beast and the body of a man.
While most of his infernal brethren have the power of afflicting humanity with terrible diseases, Alleborith has an unusual and very specific power: he can cause people to choke on fish bones. As demonic powers go, that’s a pretty strange one. Perhaps because this ability is fairly minor in the grand scheme of things, no name is given, angelic or otherwise, that would put Alleborith to flight. One assumes that the Heimlich maneuver will work just as efficiently on demonically-inspired fish bones as not.
