St. Joseph is the terror of Demons because all of demons effort is nullified if one seeks refuge to St. Joseph and also because he is pure, and demons cannot stand against his purity.

There is a passage in Revelation, chapter 12, verses 3 and 4, which may be the only passage to tell us the proportion of the angelic host to have fallen from their exalted state in heaven: "Then another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.

I wonder if the "deceiving spirit" of 1 Kings 22:22 would count? There's also an "evil spirit" in Judges 9:23, and then there's Saul's "evil spirit", as David Morton mentioned.

The source to the list of fallen presented from A-Z comes from "A Dictionary of Angels including the fallen angels" by Gustav Davidson and is considered one of the preminent sources on angels. The word "demon" comes from The words dæmon or daimôn which are Latinized versions of the Greek "δαίμων", a reference to the daemons of ancient Greek religion and ...
