Paimon (also known as Paymon or Abalam) is one of the demons mentioned in the Ars Goetia and the Dictionnaire Infernal. The second of the Nine Kings of Hell, he is more obedient to Lucifer than the other kings and commands two-hundred legions of demons.


Paimon appears as a man with a feminine physique; slender body, pale skin and long, dark hair. He wears a crown and appears to ride atop a dromedary (an Arabian camel). When summoned, he is heralded by a troupe of demons playing various musical instruments such as cymbals and trumpets.


Paimon teaches all arts, philosophies and sciences, and secret things; he can reveal all mysteries of the Earth, wind and water, what the mind is, and where it is, and everything the conjurer wants to know. He gives good familiars, dignities and confirms them, and binds men to the conjurer's will.
