Etrigan src

Etrigan is a rhyming demon in the service of Lucifer.

Demon Knights

Not content with his life, he attempted a rebellion, which did not succeed. For his insolence and betrayal, he was banished to Belial's son Merlin, who had asked Hell for a means to protect Camelot. He fused Etrigan to the rebellious scribe Jason of Norwich, and they would walk Earth together, cursed to live with each other.[1]

Powers

Abilities

Weaknesses

  • Power Limitation: The more time Etrigan spends on earth the weaker he becomes. At some point he must return to hell in order to replenish his energies.[9]


Weapons


  • Etrigan is considered the strongest of the "Champion" classification, magical beings whose souls, god or demon, are bonded to a another human's.[11]
  • Etrigan was once in a relationship with Madame Xanadu, the paramour of Jason Blood.[12] By all accounts she never truly loved him, having been with him at his request as she saw an opportunity to tame him and ensure he caused fewer problems. By the 21st century, Xanadu had separated from both men centuries prior.[13]
  • After Flashpoint, Jason Blood words to summon Etrigan has changed. The new words are "Concealed within the form of man. Release the demon, Etrigan!"
  • Demons have the ability to smell the effect of humans on their kind; the stench of Etrigan's spell-bond to Jason have permeated Etrigan over the centuries such that it is immediately noticeable.[14]
