History

Origin

Astaroth was a demon lord from the depths of the Underworld. But one fact is constant, he is a demon prince of accusers and inquisitors. He is often classified as a demon of the First Hierarchy, who seduces humans through laziness, vanity, and rationalized philosophies and can appear to his victims through a mirror. The demon is also known for teaching mathematical sciences and handicrafts, granting invisibility, leading mortals to hidden treasures, and answers every question asked. He was also said to give mortal beings the power over serpents.

Trials of the Demon

In the 1500's, Merlin and Etrigan trapped Astaroth in the underworld with Wagner's Horn before he could take over the mortal plane of existence. 300 years later, he began communicating with Gentleman Jim Craddock. In exchange for immortality, Craddock would steal 10 souls. The souls would grant Asteroth his freedom. He taught Craddock black magic and led him to several magical objects that would aid him in his quest. Asteroth planned to get his revenge on Etrigan and take over the world. When Craddock succeeded, Asteroth granted Craddock his wish. However, Batman and Etrigan intervened. Etrigan took advantage of a demon's weakness to iron, and forced Craddock's cane down Asteroth's throat. Asteroth crumbled into dust.
