Zagan should not be confused with:


Brother Alistar was an "archimage" who believed that he had been wronged and mocked by others. To obtain his revenge, he turned to Gary and Susy Daley, whose home in Greenwich Village lay on the point which he had determined from the astral plane was needed to summon forth the demon Zagan. Alistar invoked the Tetragramton, Lucifer and Belial to summon forth Zagan, but the pentragram used to hold the demon was broken by Gary and Susy's cat Igor. Released, Zagan cast Alistar before Satan in Hell. Alistar was told that he would finally have revenge...revenge was very popular in Hell.

--Tower of Shadows#4


Gary and Susy Daley were a hippie couple who lived in Greenwich Village and became affiliated with Brother Alistar when he needed to use their home to summon the demon Zagan. Neither of the couple believed Alistar's magic was real, but witnessed Zagan's arrival. When their cat Igor released Zagan from the pentagram, it punished Gary and Susy for their foolishness by delivering to them the fate they most feared-- becoming a middle-aged couple with a child and blue-collar jobs. Terror!

--Tower of Shadows#4


Igor was Gary and Susy's pet cat. It was frightened of Zagan, and by clawing at the pentagram used to hold the demon, set it free.
