Book of ShadowsEdit

The Demon of Fear Edit

Barbass8
Also known as Barbas, appears on earth once every 1300 years on a Friday the 13th for twenty four hours.
His appearance is attributed to the universal convergence of negative energies as derived from astrological charts.
He derives his life force by feeding off the fears of witches. If he
can kill 13 unmarried female witches before the stroke of midnight on the 13th he will be able to break free from his eternal bonds and walk the earth for eternity. A witch's only defense is to identify and then release her greatest fears. Do not rely on your wicca powers for defense, for in the face of your greatest fear, those powers are paralyzed.
