Kezan

 

Pronunciation:  keh-ZAN

Occurrences:  10

First Reference:  2nd Endowment 1:17

 

Now there came out from the midst of the Demiurge a great many of the Kezan which did rush upon me, whereby they might consume me into themselves; and reaching forth the hand, I did cast upon the whole of them a single oracle of great power, and there flashed round about them a white searing flame, and being filled with sudden dread, they did flee again unto the Demiurge, spitting and howling with sore displeasure.

 

 

See:  Demiurge, Doud

 

Summary:  Mindless creatures driven by hate, the Kezan are ranked lowest among the emanations of the Demiurgos. While the Douds are created by the dark princes, the Kezan are mindless emanations of the Douds, working in vast hordes to accomplish the aims of their master (6:11:55, 59).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

And the Douds, which were many, did also create and cause to emanate from themselves a vast host of the Kezan, which Kezan were themselves mindless and incapable of thought or fear; but were themselves driven by the blood of hate which coursed darkly through them, to goad and push them to constant battle. [...]

This then proved the armies of Yaldabaoth, for Yaldabaoth commanded alone the Kalliform and all the dark princes together, while the dark princes did command each the Douds which they created, even as the Douds proved most bitter masters above the vast hordes of Kezan.
