Mazazar; A.K.A. the 'Angel of Denial'
As the Angel of Denial, and you may call upon him to reveal some of his secrets to you. The price you will pay should he lend you his insights, is that you will be unable to keep certain secrets from yourself. All your excuses for why you are not as successful or popular as you would have yourself be will mercilessly disintegrate, and you will find yourself left with only your errors and short-comings.
Another common experience associated with those who work with him is the abrupt awareness of secrets they were not inquiring about. If you do not want to be made aware of those nasty things your friends say behind your back, or who your momma really screwed to breed you, then you would do best to avoid him. The news that reaches you will be impossible to hide from, as the horrors of the world, the famine, disease, and wanton destruction, can no longer be ignored.
Some have claimed that to the degree he reveals those things you have been in denial of, he also leads you to lie to yourself about other issues. He is not so much interested in revelation, perhaps, as he is willing to open some of the locked crates in the attic of your mind while closing up others.
Whatever practical secrets you might learn from him, the price you must pay may leave you caring about nothing, unless you are possessed with boundless optimism and purpose. Attempting to drive his influence from your psyche, in other words ‘denying his power,’ is ineffective, and allows him a means of hiding from you in plain view.
Mazazar is one half of a polarized union, his consort being Sephial, the Angel of Revelation.
Offerings: He receives succor from your secrets, and therefore writing a confession on a piece of paper, the back of which bears his name, and burying it is an appropriate offering. Although never inebriated, he does enjoy the scent of alcohol, perhaps because it is often the mind numbed by spirits that tell its secrets.
Time: The darkest part of night.
Images: The edges of his body are vaporous and unclear. His eyes are as black as the ink that conceals conspiracies in secret government documents. Some say that his wings, when he revealed, are enormous and blindingly white; from this comes his most familiar icon, that of a sharp, white quill bleeding black ink.
Note: In whatever room you may address him, make certain that all mirrors are first covered by black cloth.
