Andras in the Goetia
S. L. MacGregor Mathers (1904) offers a similar description of Andras. He is a Great Marquis, who appears in the form of an angel with a raven’s head. He rides a black wolf and carries a sharp sword. His specialty is to sow discord. Interestingly, Mathers offers up a warning that Andras is particularly dangerous and could slay his exorcist.
The Sixty-third Spirit is Andras. He is a Great Marquis, appearing in the Form of an Angel with a Head like a Black Night Raven, riding upon a strong Black Wolf, and having a Sharp and Bright Sword flourished aloft in his hand. His Office is to sow Discords. If the Exorcist have not a care, he will slay both him and his fellows. He governeth 30 Legions of Spirits, and this is his Seal, etc.3Mathers, S. L.
