In demon form, the Demon Duchess Bune takes on the visage of a terrible three-headed dragon. It has been said that one head is human while the other two are beasts, which, depending on the summoner's opinion, have been reported to look like the heads of dragons, dogs, or griffins. All early (circa 1500s) demonologists assumed that all demons were male, so it's no surprise that Bune was described as having a surprisingly "high and comely voice" since she is, in fact, female. Like some of the other female demons, she appears in the traditional countenance of the women of ancient Egyptian nobility.

As with many of the named demons, Bune was one of the early settlers of ancient Egypt. She helped pharaohs and nobles acquire the wealth and wisdom they would need to build the first Egyptian society. Bune is elegant and sophisticated, and is thought to be largely responsible for creating the early standards of Egyptian culture including some of the ancient sacred burial rites. She can move the bodies of the dead in and out of graves and burial chambers, and her legions of spirits tend to gather at graveyards, tombs, and other burial sites.

Bune can make a prince out of a pauper, giving a person all that would be required of a high-society figure. She helps build wealth, sophistication, and even gives one a talent for looking and speaking elegantly with ease.

Those who would seek this Duchesses assistance should burn orange scented candles (the color orange with the scent of orange), and wear fine gold jewelry as Bune does herself.
