"Pray’st thou for riches? Away, away! This is the throne of Mammon grey.” -William Blake, Mammon.
Mammon is a spirit of covetousness and passion. He is a loner, keeping his own counsel even when among his fellows of The Black Hand, and prefers to manipulate humans personally. To this end, he spends a great deal of time on Earth. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the places where the barrier separating the Material Plane from the Infernal are thinnest - where a sufficiently powerful demon may slip through into the physical world as a shade. Though referred to as male, he is just as likely to appear as a woman as he is to appear as a man, though in each guise he manifests lupine features. He was once an angel, and can occasionally be seen with pure white heron's wings. The frequent consort of Lilith, herself also a spirit of lust, Mammon has fathered the majority of the Tormentors born in Hell. His symbols are the wolf, the crown, and the rose.
