Sammael is an angel of death. His name means ‘Venom of God’.

He joined forces some centuries ago with a Demon named Belphegor, who then later cast him aside.

In ancient mythology, Sammael is known as the Venom of God, Poison of God, Blindness of God, and/or Left Hand of God. She’s what modern pop culture considers the Grim Reaper.

He is considered in Talmudic texts to be a member of the heavenly host with often grim and destructive duties. One of Samael’s greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the main angel of death and the head of satans. Although he condones the sins of man, he remains one of God’s servants.

Samael is also depicted as the angel of death and one of the seven archangels, and commander of two million angels such as the chief of other destroying angels. Some call him a fallen angel, other texts refer to him as a demonic entity, often connected with Satan. While Satan describes his function as an “accuser.”
