The Bestiari Demon was a character in the Charmed novel "As Puck Would Have It". In it, he created the identity "Tommy Brace".
The Bestiari Demon was an upper-level demon in human form that drained life energy from animals. He collected this energy and used it to make himself stronger, as it granted him the animal's attributes, such as enhanced strength, speed and agility.
He needed to absorb the energy directly into his body, but to fully drain an animal's life, he needed to do it three times. The animals were weakened each time, but the process wasn't fatal until the transfer was completed.
As he collected more, he increasingly needed stronger animals to keep fulfilling his needs.
In the novel, the demon traveled with a circus to go from town to town and have access to various animals. When the spirit Puck cast a protection spell around local areas where powerful animals are kept, the demon began feeding off the animals at the circus to keep himself alive. When the circus arrived in San Francisco, the sisters were sought out by Puck, who investigated the matter and finally found out it was the work of the Bestiari demon.
