Cacodaemons Ancient deities of inferior rank, one of whom it was believed was attached to each mortal from his birth as a constant companion, capable of giving impulses and acting as a sort of messenger between the gods and men. The cacodaemons were of a hostile nature, as opposed to the agathodaemons who were friendly. It is said that one of the cacodaemons who appeared to Cassius was a man of large stature, and of a black hue.
The belief in these daemons is probably traditional, and it is said that they were rebellious angels who were expelled from heaven for their crimes. They tried in vain to obtain a settlement in various parts of the universe and their final abode was believed to be all the space between the earth and the stars. There they abide, hated by all the elements, and finding their pleasure in revenge and injury. Their king was called Hades by the Greeks, Typhon by the Egyptians, and Ahrimanes by the Persians and Chaldeans. Early astrologers named the twelfth house of the sun "Cacodaemon" as its influence was regarded as evil.
Cacus Originally a pre-Roman god of fire, who gradually became a fire-breathing demon. Cacus lived in a cave in the Aventine Hill from where he terrorized the countryside. When Heracles returned with the cattle of Geryon, he passed Cacus' cave and lay down to sleep in the vicinity. At night Cacus dragged some of the cattle to his cave backward by their tails, so that their tracks would point in the opposite direction. However, the lowing of the animals betrayed their presence in the cave to Heracles and he retrieved them and slew Cacus. Other sources claim that Cacus' sister told Heracles the location of his cave. On the place were Heracles slew Cacus he erected an altar, where later the Forum Boarium, the cattle market, was held.
Cambions (Unk) According to Bodin and De Lancre, the offspring of incubus and succubus. Some of these demons are said to be more kindly disposed to the human race than others. Luther said of them in his Colloquies that they show no sign of life before seven years of age. He stated that he saw one which cried when he touched it.
In his Discours des Sorciers (Lyon, 1608), Henri Boguet quotes a story that a Galician mendicant was in the habit of exciting public pity by carrying about a Cambion. One day, a horseman observing him to be much hampered by the seeming infant in crossing a river, took the supposed child before him on his horse. But he was so heavy that the animal sank under the weight. Sometime afterwards the mendicant was taken and admitted that the child he habitually carried was a little demon whom he had trained so carefully that no one refused him alms whilst carrying it.
Carreau Demonic prince of the Powers, Mercilessness.
Cassiel, Caspiel (Unk) Ruler of Saturn.
Catabolignes Demons who bore men away, killed them, and had the power to break and crush them. The sixteenth century theologian L. Campester described how these demons treated their agents, the magicians and sorcerers.
Caym (Unk) One of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. Grand Master of Hell, commander of thirty legions. He is said to be the cleverest sophist in Hell , and can, through astuteness of his arguments, make the most skilled logician despair. He understands the songs of birds, the bellowing of Oxen, the barking of dogs and the sound of the waves. He knows the future and was once numbered among the Order of Angels. He is depicted as an elegant man with the head and wings of a blackbird.
Chagrin (or Cagrino). An evil spirit believed in by European gypsies. It was said to have the form of a hedgehog, yellow in colour, about a foot and a half in length and a span in breadth. Heinrich von Wlislocki stated: "I am certain, that this creature is none other than the equally demoniac being called Harginn, still believed in by the inhabitants of Northwestern India. Horses were the special prey of the Chagrin, who rode them into a state of exhaustion, like the Guecubu of Chile."
The next day they appear sick and weary, with tangled manes and bathed in sweat. When this is observed they are tethered to a stake which has been rubbed with garlic juice, then a red thread is laid on the ground in the form of a cross, or else some of the hair of the animal is mixed with salt, meal and the blood of a bat and cooked to bread, with which the hoof of the horse is smeared. The empty vessel which contained the mixture is put in the trunk of a high tree while these words are uttered:
"Tarry, pipkin, in this tree, Till such time as full ye be."
