Too long; didn’t read version: He’s one of the few spirits that appeared to me during a period where I complained that whatever I evoked/invoked was hostile to me.
Often you will hear that he tempts the magician and such. Well this has not happened once by his own initiative but rather when I asked him specifically about certain method of theft.
He has proven thusfar to be a loyal companion, to the point that today I found his enn (Keyman vefa tasa Valefor) and kept chanting it with the intention of empowering him.
As it turns, I was riding my bicycle when I suddenly stopped, not out of my own volition mind you, but I did. I was not paying attention, and had I not been “forced” to stay in place, two speeding cars could have helped me in my magickal transfiguration (albeit in the shape of roadkill).
This happened once again, a sudden change in situation, when I was tiredly walking around home. We’re doing some changes and well, all kinds of shit are laying around (furniture, tools, etc). I tripped and would have surely hurt myself, but all of a sudden I go and make the right moves to avoid that.
Valefor guards, Valefor protects.
By the way, he likes chocolate as offering (Venus alignment besides Saturnian nature, figures!). Rice too, but I have yet to offer that (I am such a bad cook that even boiling rice could have consequences, heck, I once burned down a whole kitchen because of “it needs a few more minutes frying”).
Also, as one of the Goetic spirits that becomes himself a familiar to the magician, I’ve realized you can basically ask whatever task you might think, and that he will tirelessly pursue it. I was quite surprised because I believed that only whatever is specified in the books is the only thing that they will do.
All in all, great experience.
