Nybbas: Chief Mimic and one of the Masters of Revels, Nybbas appears in the Waite translation of the Grand Grimoire published in his 1910 work, The Book of Black Magic and Pacts . Waite credits sixteenth-century scholar Johannes Wierus with cooking up the curious hierarchy from which Nybbas is drawn, but the real culprit is the self-styled French demonologist Charles Berbiguier. Collin de Plancy sourced Berbiguier’s work Les Faifadets for his extensive Dictionnaire Infernal , so Nybbas shows up here as well. De Plancy elaborates upon Nybbas’s functions, describing him as a master of visions and dreams. He may be related to the ancient Samarian deity Nibhaz referenced in 2 Kings
