Aamon commands forty infernal legions and is one of the four personal assistants of Astaroth. He is the demon of life and preproduction. The seventh spirit mentioned in the Ars Goetia, he is also a part of Christian Demonology, as he is mentioned in The Grimoire of Pope Honorius. He makes men and women fall in love with each other, and he settles disputes between friends and enemies. According to the Dictionnaire Infernal by Collin de Plancy, he commands 40 legions of demons and carries the title of Prince. He's also an entity many looked to reconcile friends and foes, and procure love for those seeking it. According to the Grand Grimoire, he is a direct subordinate of Satanachia.
Demons often appear in two primary forms, the first of which is wilder and more frightening, but the second, human with only a few bestial traits. It is up to the magician to command the evoked Demon to put on its human guise so that communication with it can be made more easily, and with less risk of injury. He should have been represented as either a fire-breathing wolf with a snake for a tail, or as a man with a raven's head that had doglike teeth in its beak.
Some demonologists have associated his name with the Egyptian god Amun or with the god Hammon of Carthage. The Egyptians viewed Amon or Amun as their supreme God; they represented him with the blue skin, in a rather human form.
He appears as a wolf with a snake's tail who can breathe fire, or as a man with dog's teeth who is situated inside of a raven, or as a raven-headed man. He is also depicted with two forms into one with the head of a dog-teethed raven, the body of a wolf, and a snake tail in place of its back legs. At the command of a mage, Aamon may take the shape of man with a raven's head, having teeth of a canine.
When appearing as a human, his skin is very pale, almost albino-like, and accompanied him is an "infernal falcon". Despite this, there have been little to no explanation about what's the different between a regular falcon and an infernal one; the Demons said that the infernal one simply live in Hell instead of Earth, but Amon insists on his infernal companions having great differences from their "lesser brethren". When on duty, he is always seen wearing black form fitting armor with a helmet that featured horns and small wings. He also featured spikes on his arms and a cape.
When the Egyptians viewed Aamon as the god Amun; they represented him with the blue skin, in a rather human form.
Aamon is by no means good and would at times kill someone with little retaliation; however, he was not evil. He didn't kill for no reason and would only do so when attacked or if someone stood in his way. He is a serious and no-nonsense demon. He hates it when people keep joking around and take things in a light manner, often reverting into his wolf form and breathe fire and poisonous gas onto them as a punishment if angered.
Aamon is the sin of violence, and compels others to turn against their fellows and harm the innocent.
Powers and Abilities
Aamon is among the mightiest and strongest of the demons possessed a great and vast array of powers. Even before he gained his demonic appearance he was highly agile, intelligent, and strong during his days as an angel in Heaven. He possessed a vast array of psychic powers being able to detect those nearby and the strength of his enemies. He was able to extend spikes from his wrists that were able to cut clean through organic material which extended to his tail and wings. He could breath fire from his mouth, and fire off a powerful bolt of energy after it builds in power. He could extend his limbs and could breath under water.
According to Christian Demonology, it is believed that he is most powerful during the day and has the ability to project flames from his mouth. Aamon is summoned for his knowledge of the past and his ability to predict the future. However, like most demons, he will only answer truthfully if the questioner ask their question specifically down to the last syllable.
He tells of all things past and future. He procures love and reconciles controversies between friends and foes, although, many scriptures have noted his way of "reconcile" is no always peaceful. He will end all arguments by the most efficient way even by ending the life of one side, much to the horror of his conjurers. He is also said to procure favors. Like Amaymon, Aamon is said to have a deadly poisonous breath.

It is likely that these were only a portion of his powers.
Myths and Legends
According to the Dictionnaire Infernal by Collin de Plancy, he commands forty legions of demons and carries the title of prince. He is also an entity many looked to reconcile friends and foes, and procure love for those seeking it. The Egyptians viewed Amon or Amun as their supreme God; they represented him with the blue skin, in a rather human form.
While he has also been known to take the form of a wolf with a serpent's tail, the demon Amon is most often described as having the body of a man but the head of a "raven with dog or wolf teeth". In ancient Egyptian drawings, the god Amon-Ra was often depicted as having the body of a man and the head of a falcon. Ravens have slightly different heads than falcons, mostly due to a longer beak. If you look closely at a falcon's beak, though, you can see that they have a very distinguishing featured called a "tomial tooth". This extension on the beak is shaped very much like a canine tooth. Armed with this knowledge, it becomes a very likely scenario that whatever conjurer of Amon described seeing a raven's head with canine teeth was actually describing the head of a falcon.
