The Twelfth Spirit is Sitri, also known as Sytry. He is a Great Prince and appeareth at first with a Leopard's head and the Wings of a Gryphon, but after the command of the Master of the Exorcism he putteth on Human shape, and that very beautiful. He enflameth men with Women's love, and Women with Men's love; and causeth them also to show themselves naked if it be desired. The Pseudomonarchia Daemonum (1577) humorously describes it thusly: "...being commanded he willinglie deteineth secrets of women, laughing at them and mocking them, to make them luxuriouslie naked."
