As Casca being placed in Godot's care and kept in the elvish mine prevented her from bring attacked, the Demon Child spends the next few years following Guts on a nightly basis out of a need to be by its parent's side. As a result, with Guts loathing it further, it plagued his moments of rest while watching closely over him. But as the God Hand make preparations for an Incarnation Ceremony in Albion , sensing the events about to unfold that may result in its mother's death, the Child appears before Guts and alerts him of Casca's escape from Godot. The Child eventually appears in Albion to protect its mother from the restless spirits of the holy city's dead.
Whenever Casca was about to harmed by the spirits when they took over a physical body, the Demon manifested to silently command spirits to leave. But when the Incarnation Ceremony is close to begin, the Demon Child exhausted most of its life force to shield Casca from both spiritually possessed blood of the wrathful dead and the flames of a recently transformed Mozgus. The Demon Child vanished soon after while Guts would save Casca in its place.
The Apostle, also on the verge of death as he is about to fulfill his role in the ceremony, swallows the Demon Child so that neither would have to die alone.
But within the Apostle's stomach before he shatters, as the Incarnation Ceremony runs its course, the Demon Child gradually developed into a human infant before gradually maturing into part of the vessel for Griffith's essence to take residence in. Though now existing as part of Griffith's new corporeal form, faint traces of the Demon Child's need to protect Casca appear to have some influence on Griffith as he found out while at the Hill of Swords.

Another story is that Cromwell made a deal with the Devil in exchange for his success.
He died on September 3, That night, a massive storm swept across the country. It was a fitting end to a picture that Royalists had been painting for nearly 10 years. By the early s, they were promoting the image that Charles I was a representative and ally of Christ while Cromwell was clearly with the Devil. A pact with the Devil was used to explain his rise to power and his success on the battlefield.
Even the weather seemed to rebel when he died, cementing the whole idea. Basil was born in Turkey in AD to a Christian family that had remained Christian during a time when Christians were persecuted in scores. He wrote a large body of work, including around letters that we still have today. Widely admired, he succumbed to poor health when he was 50 years old. According to legend, he went head-to-head with the Devil at least once. The story says that St.
Can a Christian be cursed? Will God allow a curse on a believer?
Basil was approached by a young woman whose husband had sold his soul to the Devil. He was a slave, and she was the daughter of his master. In order to free himself and marry her, he had turned to the Devil for help. The Devil kept his word, and the marriage took place. The ex-slave was forced to confess what he had done when his inability to go to church, pray, or make the sign of the cross was brought forth.
Basil prayed for him and, eventually, the contract the man had written with the Devil was delivered on the wind. The saint was able to tear it up and release the former slave from his demonic bindings. The Devil in the story makes a good point when he confronts the slave. They know that they can get away with anything because Christ will always take them back.
In , England was rocked by a massive scandal. While most of the accused were high-ranking and influential, Margery Jourdemayne was the exception. Imprisoned for two years, she was finally examined and released with a promise to keep herself out of trouble and stop her evil practices. Margery did not keep her promise. According to some sources, it was right after she was released that she went back to casting spells and aiding those who sought her help for matters like conceiving a child and the creation of love potions.

She was accused of providing the magical potions that Eleanor had used on the Duke of Gloucester. It was a big step up for the daughter of a knight. Fast-forward a bit, and a man named Roger Bolingbroke was accused of casting a horoscope that predicted the death of King Henry. His new wife, Eleanor, would have had every reason to turn to black magic in order to climb to the very top of the social ladder. The casting of horoscopes led to charges brought against Bolingbroke and two other men, Home and Southwell, for conspiring against the king by use of black magic and necromancy.

A violent storm that kicked up on the night of her arrest seemed to cement the belief that she was in league with the Devil. Margery claimed that the wax image was meant as a fertility charm. Margery was burned at the stake for her machinations with the Devil and for witchcraft.
About the same time, Southwell died a mysterious death in prison, and Bolingbroke was hanged, drawn, and quartered. Home was pardoned, and Eleanor was burned by sentencing of a court led by the Archbishop of Canterbury. Cellini tells the story of a Sicilian priest whom he came to befriend.
They shared numerous conversations about art, culture, literature, and other intellectual pursuits. One day, the idea of necromancy happened to come up in conversation, as it does. The priest instructed him to grab a friend and meet him at the Colosseum. When Cellini and his friend, Vincenzio Romili, showed up, they found the priest now dressed in the robes of a necromancer and standing in the middle of circles that had been drawn on the ground.
Telling Cellini and Romili to tend the fires, the perfumes, and the incense, the priest began what was an hour and a half of incantations. When the priest-necromancer told him to make a request of them, he asked to be reunited with a woman he called his Sicilian Angelica. This time it was Gaddi and Romili who tended the fires while Cellini was tasked with pinning the boy inside a pentacle. He made his request again as the boy was screaming, saying that there were thousands of demons, millions of men, and four huge giants trying to break through the circle separating their world from the next.
Cellini, seeing that the necromancer was absolutely terrified by what the boy was saying, stated that they all looked to him to keep everyone steady and strong—and to keep the demons at bay. All their incantations seemed to be failing, until Gaddi voided himself in terror and everyone else cracked up laughing. Because nothing scares devils like fart jokes, the demons were driven back, except for a few that were spotted running along the rooftops.
The priest appealed to the sculptor to help him in taking advantage of the demons and devils that they could clearly summon, wanting his help in writing a book that would guide them through summoning the creatures and gaining the knowledge of all the hidden treasures of the world. Cellini had one commission for the Pope. An Elizabethan-era scientist and dabbler in the occult, John Dee worked alongside the mysterious Edward Kelley in the court of Elizabeth I.
He had a huge amount of influence in the court, even casting an astrological chart to determine the precise time that Elizabeth should be crowned. Dee and Kelley were reported to have their fingers in things that were much darker than just astronomy. By , they claimed to be able to channel communications through crystal balls and speak with angels. While he might have claimed to be talking to angels, he was still involved in stuff that most people tend to frown upon. The heat around him was quickly gaining momentum.
The only thing the queen could do was offer to ship him off somewhere that he might be able to be forgotten. He took a position as warden of the Manchester Collegiate Church and really did live a God-fearing life. But rumors can be relentless, and before too long he was asked to oversee the treatment of a group of children that were supposedly possessed by the Devil. Rumors that Dee had a rather personal relationship with the Devil persisted and came to a climax with the discovery of a table that was marked by a suspicious burn mark. He petitioned James I in an attempt to clear the rumors from his name, but those attempts failed.
Katharina Kepler was the mother of astronomer Johannes Kepler and a widow by the time the rumors of her involvement with the Devil started. The case was dropped from lack of evidence and Kepler counter-sued for defamation with the support of her son.
A year later, she was targeted by a handful of girls who claimed she had cursed them with paralysis and pain. Kepler was forced to flee after a failed bribery attempt. When the first case fell apart with the revelation that Reinbold was a prostitute, the second took center stage. She was confronted with 49 counts of maleficia, and her dealings with the Devil were chief among them.
