Valac is a demon described in the goetic grimoires the Lesser Key of Solomon (in some versions as Ualac or Valak[1] and in Thomas Rudd's variant as Valu),[2] Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (as Volac),[3] the Liber Officium Spirituum (as Coolor or Doolas),[4][5] and in the Munich Manual of Demonic Magic (as Volach)[6][7][8] as an angelically winged boy riding a two-headed dragon, attributed with the power of finding treasures.[6][1][4][5][2][3]

In popular culture[edit]

  • The 2016 horror film The Conjuring 2 has Valak as the main antagonist, taking on the form of a demonic nun. The character, however bears no resemblance with mythology besides the name and title of "Marquis of Snakes".
