The long lost 73rd spirit of the Goetia?

Prince Bufas ,(Pruslas or Pruflas)

According to Pseudomonarchium Daemonum, “Pruflas, otherwise found as Bufas, is a great prince and duke, whose abode is around the Tower of Babylon, and there he is seen like a flame outside. His head however is like that of a great night hawk. He is the author and promoter of discord, war, quarrels, and falsehood. He may not be admitted into every place. He responds generously to your requests. Under him are twenty-six legions, partly of the order of Thrones, and partly of the order of Angels.”

Now look at this.

This is from the occult tarot.

This says Vassago but look at the image and offices…thats Bufas I’m sure of it.

So we caught an error in the occult tarot ( still love the deck though)

These are the offices of the real Vassago

The Third Spirit is a Mighty Prince, being of the same nature as Agares. He is called Vassago. This Spirit is of a Good Nature, and his office is to declare things Past and to Come, and to discover all things Hid or Lost. And he governeth 26 Legions of Spirits, and this is his Seal.

So the question is does such a wicked spirit such as Prince Bufas belong with the other 72, yes I certainly think he meets all the criteria.

I’ve worked with him twice, he’s very fast and extremely corrosive and destructive.

Very cool spirit.

Here’s the seal if you want to try to work with him.

He has no enns that I could find.

I used “Liftoach pandemonium, et germinet Prince Bufas” ( open the infernal plane and bring forth Prince Bufas)


Interesting, the moment I saw the title of this thread, Prince Pruflas popped in my head and i knew this was about him.

Very very interesting.


The only demon that appears in Pseudomonarchium Daemonum, yet isn’t listed in Lesser Key, indeed, very bizarre.


I know right…@auneke

I know people like poke Runyon would hate a 73rd spirit because it would mess up thier nice neat mandala chart for Goetic spirits and thier “angelic rulers” :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I’ve worked with this spirit and he is a real dark shadow. He definitely gives goosebumps when he arrives and his energy signature is very infernal.


Ngl I crack myself everytime I see “Bufas” because ‘bufa’ is a slang for fart in my country lmao


I’m still wondering why Travis McHenry used the offices and abilities of Bufas on the card labeled Vassago. How could he possibly mistake the two spirits. How could a mistake like that make it all the way to final production. Love the deck don’t get me wrong though.


Yes you’re right I found that too after the fact.

Good find @sanaRo

Btw that enns can be used for other spirits of the infernal variety also so it’s a good tool to have in your tool box. :grin::love_you_gesture:


I’ve had that name pop in my awareness over the past week. Thanks for this post! :metal:t4:
