The demon Halphas is a Fallen Angel and 38th of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. In Hell, Halphas is an earl who appears in the form of a stork and speaks with a hoarse voice. He burns towns; it is also said that he builds towns and fills them with armed men. Halphas takes swords to the wicked and sends men either to battlefields or to other places. He rules 26 Legions of demons.
From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by Samuel MacGregor Liddell Mathers

Original Text : Halphas, grand comte des enfers. Il paraît sous la forme d’une cigogne, avec une voix bruyante. Il bâtit des villes, ordonne les guerres et commande vingt-six legions. C’est peut-être le meme que Malphas.
