Morax (also called Marax, Foraii or Farax) is the 21st demonic spirit of the Ars Goetia. He is a great Earl and a President (and sometimes a great count) and appears as a great bull with a man's face. But he is capable of taking the shape of a woman dressed in the style of traditional ancient Egyptian nobility. Some believe this demon to be the Egyptian goddess Ma'at or the monster Minotaur.
His office is to make man knowledgeable in astronomy and all other liberal sciences. He can bestow wise familiars and knows the virtues of herbs and precious stones. He governs 36 legions of spirits. According to the Grand Grimoire, he is a direct subordinate of Sargatanas.
His name seems to come from Latin "morax", that delays, that stops.
"One of the 72 demons of the Goetia. He appears as a man with a bull's head. He has knowledge of magical gems and plants, and teaches astronomy and astrology. He also sometimes gives his summoner a familiar."
—Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey compendium
Morax first appears in Sector Antlia as a boss in the B2F of the sector. He has a desire to destroy humanity because of the violence they've caused. He asks the protagonist whether he thinks that the demons are the real heroes for doing this. The protagonist's answer affects his alignment. After the dialogue, the protagonist proceeds to fight Morax. When Morax is defeated, he drops the Rosetta for Antlia and a rare forma that unlocks new Sub Apps in the lab. He is also unlocked as a Special fusion, and can be created by fusing Itsumade, Oni and Melchom.
Morax appears once more in Sector Fornax, proclaiming his vengeance against the protagonist for defeating him. He appears in his new form as the Tyrant Moloch.
