Chamos

Chamos: According to the demonic hierarchy of Charles Berbiguier, Chamos serves in Hell's royal household. In Berbiguier's early-nineteenth-century work, Les Farfadets, Chamos is listed as the Lord High Chamberlain and a Knight of the Fly. Occultist A. E. Waite presents Chamos in the same capacity in his treatment of the Grand Grimoire in his Book of Black Magic and Pacts. Chamos is almost certainly a variation of Chemosh, an ancient Moabite god named in the Bible. In the Bible, Chemosh is variously known as “the destroyer,” “the subduer,” and “the abomination of Moab.” As was the case with nearly all foreign gods, the early Israelites didn't like Chemosh much, hence his transformation from god to demon.
