- "Omnis spiritus in munde. In nomine dei. Omnis spiritus in odorem suavitatis. Tu autem effugare, diabole. Appropinquabit enim judicium dei. -Abrenuntias satanae ? -Do you renounce Satan ? -Et omnibus operibus eus ? -And all of his works ? -Omnibus pompis eus ? -And all his pomps ? -Exorcie te. Omnis spiritus immunde. Adaperiae !"
- ―Wesley and Angel[src]
This was a ritual that exorcised Ethros demons not a "weapon".
In 2000, Angel Investigations came face to face with an Ethros Demon, a powerful possessing demon with a penchant for mass murder, which had taken possession a boy, Ryan Anderson. Angel Investigations sought the help of Father Fredricks, a known exorcist, only to discover that he had been killed in the process of exorcising another Ethros from a young girl. Wesley Wyndam-Pryce failed in expelling the demon, but Angel succeeded in completing the ritual. However, since what they got was not an Ethros Box, the demon was n't trapped and fled instead. Consequently, the demon took on physical form to recover its lost energy and Angel was able to kill it with an axe.
