Camiel: The name of this demon appears frequently in the Ars Theurgia. Each time, it seems as if a separate and distinct demon is implied, as Camiel has very different qualities depending on where his name appears. He shows up as a demon in the court of prince Hydriel. Here, he appears in the form of a great serpent with the head of a beautiful woman. This version of Camiel is said to be drawn to wet locations like swamps. He is reputed to have a total of one thousand three hundred and twenty ministers to attend his needs.

Camiel also appears under the command of the demon Amenadiel, the Great Emperor of the West. Here, Camiel is said to hold the rank of duke, ruling over a total of three thousand eight hundred and eighty lesser spirits of his own. Camiel is named again in the court of the wandering duke Bursiel. In this manifestation, Camiel is reputed to be a being of great malevolence. He fears the light of the day and will only manifest at night. Camiel and his fellow spirits under Bursiel are hated by all of the other spirits due to their roguish and evil natures. This version of Camiel is similar in appearance to the one who serves Hydriel. When he manifests, he appears as a terrible serpent with a human head. He commands a total of eight hundred and eighty ministering spirits. He also appears as one of several dukes serving beneath the demon Malgaras. Here, Camiel belongs to the hours of the day and commands thirty lesser ministering spirits.
