- Ghosts, Ghouls and Demons
- Origin: Persian/Iranian
Description: A demon of wrath, rage and fury. One of the fiercest demons in hell.
Aeshma is a part of the Zoroastrianism – an ancient Persian religion founded in the 7th century. He is the demon responsible for malice and acts of aggression. He has no physical form, but he is intent on the destruction of humanity by yielding a vicious lance. His epithet is “of the bloody mace.”
Aeshma is the leader of an army of hellish demons. They assist him in performing his evil doings, such as starting wars, enticing people to be morally corrupt and swaying people away from their worship.
He is the complete opposite of religious devotion and discipline. He is chaos.
He can be deterred by reciting a prayer from the Zoroastrian text, the Vendidad.
