Adramelech was a god called Baal Adramelech (Baal means "Lord" and melech means "King" in Hebrew) in Assyrian mythology. It is said that children were sacrificed to him, but Greek accounts saying that child sacrifice via burning them or placing them within a heated bronze statue of the god are not historically verifiable, as no archaeological proof of such a large, bronze statue exists.
Adramelech is considered a demon in Judeo-Christian tradition, being generally depicted with a human torso and head, and the rest of the body of a mule, a peacock, or some combination there of. He was described as "The enemy of God, greater in ambition, guile and mischief than Satan. A fiend more cursed — a deeper hypocrite".
