Catoblepas as it appears in Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers

Catoblepas (カトブレパス, Katoburepasu)? is a demon in the series.

HistoryEdit

Catoblepas is a legendary creature from Ethiopia, described first by Pliny the Elder and later by Claudius Aelianus. It is said to have the body of a buffalo and the head of a hog. Its back has scales that protect the beast, and its head is always pointing downwards. Its stare or breath could either turn people into stone, or kill them. The catoblepas is often thought to be based on real-life encounters with wildebeast, such that some dictionaries say that the word is synonymous with "gnu."

AppearancesEdit

ProfileEdit

Shin Megami Tensei IMAGINEEdit

"A monster of Greek mythology, appearing in the eight book of Pliny's "Natural History." Its name means "one who looks downward." The catoblepas was said to dwell in the west of Ethiopia, near the Nile River. It was described having the body of a black buffalo and the head of a pig or snake, with a slender rope-like neck. It was stocky in build, and its body was covered by incredibly hard fur. Its breath was said to be deadly poison, enough to instantly cause the plants around it to wither and die. The catoblepas also had a lethal gaze that would (turn) whatever its eye crossed to stone. However, its slender neck made it difficult to raise its head, and so it rarely had the chance to wield this power.
The catoblepas is also sometimes identified with the Gorgons of Greek myths.
