He claimed to be able to teleport between continents, make himself invisible, make women fall in love with him, predict the future, turn metals into gold, summon and exorcise demons and, most importantly, discover buried treasure.

Probably a mutant.

Anyone can have 'superpowers'.

All of those powers are attributed to demons of the Goetia .He probably practiced ceremonial magick ,which is the foundation of summoning these demons .
Interesting .I've never heard of him .

Miss me?

I read about this a few days ago, it was interesting.  If he has these powers why didn't he just teleport out and avoid the trial.

His mana was empty.

I wish I had them powers :clap:

Dear you guys. Words cannot express how much I hate you guys. As we fight our way northward into the great unknown, only that one thing remains certain: that I hate you guys with every tired muscle in my confederate body. We have taken Topeka and I must rally the men onward to Missouri. Because I will not stop until we have won it all, and you guys are my slaves. Because I hate you guys. I hate you guys so very very much. Yours, General Cartman Lee.

Apparently his 'predict the future' didn't work so well for him either....

No, he was just surrounded by gullible people...

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Who is Goetia? Btw if such creatures/beings exist why would called them deamons? Im mean seems that they do more good then harm.

If I'm parcing what Simbi said corrctly, goetic daemons are daemons of knowledge from mythology (probably Jewis myhtology).

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

It seems the inquisitor was the far more enlightened individual and Pedro Ruiz Calderón was but another Grigori Rasputin.
