Buer: A demon mentioned in the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, Buer teaches mortals about natural and moral philosophies, logic, and ethics. He is represented as a lion’s head on a goat’s body and as the constellation Sagittarius, and is a healer of men.
The writer, Buer, is a game designer and bureaucrat that holds two degrees in Anthropology, listens to far too much music, and ponders the philosophy of the world. Primarily inheriting academically a historical deconstructionist approach (breaking things down to their beginnings), Buer’s own philosophy holds that science and the quest for knowledge are inherent aspects of the conceptualization of human reality, while art and storytelling are stimuli to which one’s soul reacts. His literary influences are Tolkien, David Foster Wallace, and Geoffrey Chaucer and his philosophical influences are Nietszche, Goethe, Spinoza, Foucault, and Blackburn. He views work as a chance to push paper while spinning whatever metal comes to mind.
Paimona: Another of the demons mentioned in the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, Paimonia is a teacher of art, philosophies, and science. He is an effeminate man, riding a dromedary camel, and wearing a precious crown.
The artist, Paimona, is wife to Buer and is currently working at the art and inspiration of the world of Cultura. She has an obsession with elves of all kinds (one that possibly borders on unhealthy). Her primary artistic influences are Albrecht Durer, John Singer Sargeant, Salavdor Dali, Monet, and Bev Doolittle. Her literary influences are Tolkien, Salvatore, Shakespeare, and Jim Butcher. She spends most of her time exasperated at Buer’s musical selection.
Naberus: Also known as Naberius and Cerberus, Naberus is a demon mentioned in the Pseudomonarchia Daemonum. With the voice of a raven, Naberus teaches rhetoric, arts and sciences. He is represented as a raven or a three-headed dog.
The writer, Naberus, is a linguist and manager of a small business that holds a language degree and an electronics degree and has a penchant for pedantry and philosophical discourse. His literary influences are Tolkien, Thoreau, Lope de Vega and C.S. Lewis. His philosophical influences are Nietzsche, Spinoza and Wittgenstein.
