The Beast is an axe-wielding, purple-coloured creature with wings, that we inadvertently, but necessarily summon by lighting all the candles on the occult floor painting in one of the Mansion's rooms, located beyond the corridor to the right side of the main entrance of the Mansion. Defeating the creature, we're rewarded with the small Quartz Idol it was carrying around its neck, required to access Florentine's Library and the door that leads us to the Temple of the Morning Star.
Originally, the door to the afore-mentioned location of the statuette is protected by a green ward . After having opened the Sarcophagus in the Study and survived our first unpleasant encounter with Belial in Hawk's Prison, the seal will explode though, allowing us to proceed through the unlit corridor now open for exploration and eventually enter a dark room whose walls are characterised by numerous empty frames and blood splattered all over them. On the floor we spot a laboriously executed painting displaying occult iconography, which will spawn a major Yielder upon closer inspection. Lighting all the five candles that are placed around it, we summon a necessary evil whose defeat will yield us the Quartz Idol:
Adam: This [quartz idol] opened the door to the library. That thing in its hands must be a book then.
