Pales is a demon in the series.

History[edit | edit source]

Pales was a Roman deity of shepherds, flocks and livestock, who was worshiped from northern Africa all the way to Rome. The donkey's head has long been a sign of fertility and is often worshiped. The deity's temples have been built on Palatine Hill in Rome.

He is regarded as a male by some sources and as a female by others, and even possibly as a pair of deities. Its name is thought to have derived the terms "palace" and "Palestine."

His or her (there is some dispute amongst scholars) temple was built on Palatine Hill in Rome. The word "palace" came from this god's name."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Pales being categorized into the Vile race is probably due to the theory that Pales was derived from the demonized Egyptian god, Set. A donkey is one of the animals that compose Seth's appearance.
