Here are some additional lore details from the Megami Tensei Wiki:

Baphomet is a king of demons, known as the “Sabbatic Goat.” He is identified with Satanachia, a senior demon general described in the Grand Grimoire. His name is believed to be a corruption of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. He is usually depicted with the head of a goat, with a pentagram carved between his horns, and the body of a human woman or hermaphrodite. He has the power to control all human women, and is said to give witches their power, thus, famously known as a demon worshipped by witches.

The Knights Templar, heroes of the Crusades, were accused of worshipping Baphomet by a church inquisition and branded as heretics. To keep them silent, the head of the Templars and another senior leader were sentenced to be burned alive. However, it was later revealed that this was orchestrated by King Philip IV of France, who coveted the Templars’ wealth.

Shin Megami Tensei V is expected to arrive on Switch on November 12. Previous daily demon video coverage can be found here.
