Black magic is the selfish perversion of magical arts to destroy others, or for personal gain. The conscious use of black magic rituals for the exercise of evil. A black magician is a person who wants power for himself. A magician may summon the Devil or one of his demons and remain a white magician, so long as the purpose for the summoning is benevolent. Black magicians are usually those who made a pact with the Devil. They invoke diabolic and infernal powers by black magic rituals and spells.
