"Namtar. Allatu. Morax. Naberius. Klesh. Vepar. Maymon."

Burgess here invokes a variety of demonic entities from different sources. Namtar was a Mesopotamian god of death and controller of diseases, Allatu a Semitic underworld goddess, Morax a demonic teacher of liberal sciences, Naberius a demon who made men cunning, and Vepar a demon who controlled the sea. Klesh, Maymon, and the following names appear to be Gaiman's creations, but can be assumed to be similar beings.
