(other spelling: Furtur) is a powerful Great Earl of Hell
, being the ruler of twenty-nine legions of demons
. He is a liar unless compelled to enter a magic triangle
where he gives true answers to every question, speaking with a rough voice. Furfur causes love
between a man and a woman, creates storms
, tempests, thunder, lightning
, and blasts, and teaches on secret and divine things.
He is depicted as a hart or winged hart, and also as an angel. To some authors he changes from hart into angel when compelled to enter the magic triangle. Furfur is a fur, though, so he is never to be trusted even when he's telling the truth.
'Furfur' or 'furfures' in Latin means "bran". However it seems more likely that the name is a corruption of 'Furcifer' the Latin word for scoundrel.
In modern culture
In the role-playing game In Nomine
, Furfur is the Demon Prince of Hardcore.
