And with a roar and a hiss he called unto his brethren closest to him, and there leaped at once to follow: Jehovah-Yahweh, Emanu-Elish and Dagon-Erat, and with them leaped the armies at their command; racing quickly after the Daughter which seemed to flee in fear.
Summary: Dagon-Erat was one of ten dark princes created by the Chief Demiurge, Yaldabaoth (6:1:48-50). Each of Yaldabaoth’s sons commanded vast hordes of lesser minions during the Second War against Heaven.
And Jehovah commanded fiercely against his brothers, saying: “The woman you see alone is mine, therefore leave her unto me; for I would finish what once she started and bring her down in ruin, for I would avenge myself against her.”
Thus did Emanu-Elish and Dagon-Erat yield the prize to Jehovah, being themselves in fear of him; and with fierce intent they followed after the Cherubim, perchance to overtake, hoping each within themselves to win a victory all their own against the very Gods.
6th Endowment 9:53-54
For at Gilliahmas did Mahaleenah face at once the armies of Jehovah-Yahweh, and Emanu-Elish and Dagon-Erat also; being themselves together numbered among the dark princes of Yaldabaoth; possessing at their command a vast and swelling horde which did strive with vicious effort to overwhelm the Father’s Daughter.
6th Endowment 11:29
Thus in great uncertainty the battle raged and on the fourth day did the forces of the Demiurge pull back to reassemble the tattered remains of all their might; and in a hurried tone did Jehovah-Yahweh confer heatedly with his brother Dagon-Erat concerning what next they ought to do.
And as they wrestled among themselves in the forming of a plan, even in that moment did the Mahaleenah and Michael set in order the armies of the Light; for among the Cherubim and Seraphim were many gravely wounded, while among the armies of Elohim had many been most hurtful wounded.
