Haures

Haures - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

The Demon Haures (Hauras, Haurus, Havres, Flauros) is a Fallen Angel and the 64th of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. Haures reigns as a duke with 36 Legions of Demons under his command.
He appears first as a terrible leopard but, if commanded, will change shape into a man with fiery eyes and a terrible countenance. If invoked into the magician’s triangle, he will give true answers to questions about the past,present, and future; outside the triangle, he will lie.
Haures will talk openly of divinity, the creation of the world, and the fall of the Angels, including his own fall.
He will destroy and burn one’s enemies but will protect those who invoke him from temptation, spirits, and other dangers.
Haures - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by S.L. MacGregor Mathers

HAURES, or HAURAS, or HAVRES, or FLAUROB. The Sixty-fourth Spirit is Haures, or Hauras, or Havres, or Flauros. He is a Great Duke, and appeareth at first like a Leopard, Mighty, Terrible, and Strong, but after a while, at the Command of the Exorcist, he putteth onHuman. Shape with Eyes Flaming and Fiery, and a most Terrible Countenance. He giveth True Answers of all things, Present, Past, and to Come.
But if he be not commanded into a Triangle, Ò, he will Lie in all these Things, and deceive and beguile the Exorcist in these things, or in such and such business. He will, lastly, talk of the Creation of the World, and of Divinity, and of how he and other Spirits fell. He destroyeth and burneth up those who be the Enemies of the Exorcist should he so desire it; also he will not suffer him to be tempted by any other Spirit or otherwise. He governeth 36 Legions of Spirits, and his Seal is this, to be worn as a Lamen, etc.

Haures - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” ( 1583 ) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier)

Flauros a strong duke, is seene in the forme of a terrible strong leopard, in humane shape, he sheweth a terrible countenance, and fierie eies, he answereth trulie and fullie of things present, past, and to come; if he be in a triangle, he lieth in all things and deceiveth in other things, and beguileth in other busines, he gladlie talketh of the divinitie, and of the creation of the world, and of the fall; he is constrained by divine vertue, and so are all divels or spirits, to burne and destroie all the conjurors adversaries. And if he be commanded, he suffereth the conjuror not to be tempted, and he hath twentie legions under him.

Original Text: Flauros dux fortis: conspicitur forma leopardi and terribili. In humana specie vultum ostentat horrendum, and oculos flammeos. De præteritis, præsentibus and futuris plene and vere respondet. Si fuerit in triangulo, mentitut in cunctis, and fallit in aliis negotiis. Libenter loquitur de divinitate, mundi creatione and lapsu. Divina virtute cogitur, and omnes alii dæmones sive spiritus, ut omnes adversarios exorcistæ succendant and destruant. Et si virtute numinis ipsi imperatum fuerit, exorcistæ tentationem non permittit. Legiones viginti sub sua habet potestate.

Haures - Demon and Spirit of Solomon

From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (edition of 1863 ) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy

Grand-general of hell and commanding 20 legions, Flauros appeared as a leopard. In human form, he had a frightful face with burning eyes. He knows of the past/present/future, can turn Demons and spirits against the exorcists.

Original Text : Flauros, grand général aux enfers. Il se faitvoir sous la figure d’un terrible léopard. Lorsqu’ilprend la forme humaine, il porte un visageaffreux, avec des yeux enflammés. Il connaît lepassé, le présent et l’avenir, soulève tous lesdémons ou esprits contre ses ennemis les exorcistes,et commande vingt légions.

Note from Occult World :

There is a difference in the Legions of Demons Haures commands. In the Dictionnaire Infernal and in the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” it is said that he commands 20 legions. S.L. MacGregor Mathers states that he commands 36 legions. Please contact me if you know what causes the difference.
