Zagan has featured prominently in many demonic vanguard. A dangerous position to take indeed, but Zagan's confidence knows no bounds as he is protected both by mystical armor of unrivalled strength, a product of his mastery of alchemy, and by summoned Crypids of unprecedented power.
Zagan is a Great King and President of Hell, commanding over thirty-three legions of demons. He makes men witty; he can also turn wine into water, water into wine, and blood into wine (according to Pseudomonarchia Daemonum: blood into oil, oil into blood, and a fool into a wise man). Other of his powers is that of turning metals into coin that are made with that metal. Zagan is depicted as a griffin-winged bull that turns into a man after a while.
