    Where did the name Aesma Daeva come from and what are the historical or literary references?

    I don't know much about this... I just know that Aesma Daeva is a Persian angelic figure whose name means "shining one".

    According to
    Encyclopedia Mythica:

    "Fury". One of the Daevas, Aesma Daeva ("madness") is the demon of lust and anger, wrath and revenge. His wrath is mainly directed towards the cow. He is the personification of violence, a lover of conflict and war. Together with the demon of death, Asto Vidatu, he chases the souls of the deceased when they rise to heaven. The Jewish evil spirit Asmodeus is derived from his image. His eternal opponent is Sraosa.

    WOW! That is an interesting bit of information, and answers my question adequately enough. Thank you for your super research.
