Hello Miro! It's me (annoying you) again. I see that you added an Old God of nature to the pantheon of F&H, the child of the duality Gro-goroth Sylvian. So we have a Trimurti now (really makes sense). But I wonder... how this one will be? What you think of a mexican life & death mask? "Death feeds on life, life feeds on death (of others)". "A god popular in (central) Vinland" (really, human sacrifices for fertility rites). Vishnu + Xipe Totec. Just an idea, of course, the stuff you make is fine in the way it is!
Yes. In the book "The Lesser Key of Solomon" there are two demons which match the name: "Beleth" and "Behrit". Japanese people write in kanji and have problems in translating western names, and also switch the letters "R" and "L". I believe that Berith/Beherith/Beherith is the right one since it means "pact" in Hebrew language/Aramaic (often as a pact with God/s). It's super-obvious that Miura Kentaro made the Hand of God inspired by the Cenobites ("Monks") from the movie/s "Hellraiser". They serve Leviathan (a mythical creature) which later became a greater demon in grimoires (The Sacred magic of Abramelin the Mage). So it's not a coincidence at all that the amulet's name, Beherith, comes from a demon of another grimoire. The egg is a symbol of birth/rebirth, and the amulet works as a pact.
Curiosity: These grimoires are relatively moderns. They employ medieval titles (Duke, Marquis) which never existed in ancient times. Many demons (Baal, Amon, Astaroth/Ashtoreth, Haures) in reality are ancient gods from Akkadik and Egyptian pantheons, turned into demons by medieval (christian and hebrew) occultists.
