The archdevil Geryon (pronounced JER-ee-ehn)[1] is the master of swampy Stygia, Hell's fifth layer.[2] Geryon is the source of all great heresies.[3] It[4] was formerly an asura rana before becoming an archdevil; it notably devoured 812 other tyrants of Hell before swearing itself to Asmodeus in the Only Vow.[5]
