Asmodeus, King of Demons

Asmodeus is an arch demon, depicted in the Book of Tobit as a demon twists men's desires. Early representations cast him in an almost playful, satyr-like light. Later depictions center more around Lust as his main vice. He runs gambling houses in Hell, confuses virgins, inspires jealousy between newlyweds, etc.
