AnarazelEdit

Mentioned once in Florentine's journal[1]. According to ancient superstition, Anarazel is one of the demons charged with the guardianship of subterranean treasures, which he carries about from one place to another to hide them from men. Together with his accomplices Gaziel and Fécor, shakes the foundations of houses, raises the tempests, rings the bells at midnight, causes specters to appear, and inspires a thousand terrors. Anarazel is also said to provide his followers with answers to their future and to guide them on their financial endeavours.

AntoineEdit

As mentioned by one of the voices that can be heard while wandering through the Tower:
It shall be here Antoine, here in the forests of Falshire that they shall fall. Then, our spy shall move and Aelf shall fall from within.

Baron UrienEdit

In one of the cutscenes in Realms of the Haunting, Pelador, a fellow Falshire Knight of Aelf, mentions a certain 'Baron Urien,' who may be a reference to the late 6th century king of Rheged (former name of a region covering northern England and southern Scotland).

According to Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, Raym (or more prominently Räum or Raum, respectively) is a Great Earl of Hell, ruling thirty legions of demons. He is depicted as a crow which adopts human form at the request of the conjurer. Raym steals treasures out of kings' houses, carrying them where he wishes, and destroys cities and dignities of men (he is said to have great dispraise for dignities). He can also tell things past, present and future, and reconcile friends and foes.

Sir Henry GodwinEdit

A noted astronomer mentioned in one of the newspaper cuttings found in Belial's prison. As related in the article, he died in a fire that spread through the entire west wing of his home in rural Gloucestershire, while his wife remained unhurt.

SlandererEdit

Furthermore, the official Interplay walkthrough identifies Vine as the demon which Adam has to fight after having placed all the brains in the machine (as part of the first test of the Key to the Abyss)[20].
According to Christian demonology, Vine is an Earl and also a King of Hell, commanding 36 legions of demons. He can tell present, past and future, discover witches and hidden things, create storms and make the water rough by means of them, bring down walls and build towers. He is portrayed as a lion holding a snake in his hand and riding a black horse.
