Valefor; Another Strange Spirit
In an attempt to describe Valefor, the old magickians said he
looked like a lion with the head of an ass.
But Aaron C. Donahue's remote viewed drawing of this strange
spirit doesn't make him look that way at all. Valefor, in
Donahue's mind, looks somewhat like an animal because he stands on

from companions and friends. He cannot be broken of that habit, no

the Seagrave report states.
