It was in 1582 that John Dee, occult adviser to Queen Elizabeth I, summoned what he believed to be angels. Claiming to be the same angels that spoke to Enoch in that infamous pseudepigraphic tome, they taught Dee their language and revealed yet more hidden secrets. Those secrets filtered down through the ages through the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, Ordo Templi Orientis and the Church of Satan and are now common knowledge. But it was in the hands of Aleister Crowley that the keys were savaged and abused to bring forth into the world an unspeakable evil:

Gungor Dator Dolor, sinister avatar of Choronzon, dweller in the Abyss.

Crowley, though he was among the greatest black magicians of his time and may well have been the beast of revelations himself, was unable to control Gungor. Gungor escaped the Abbey of Thelema and began to wreak havoc upon Italy. Many occultists to this day believe that Gungor took the form of Mussolini himself to send the world in a downward spiral toward world war.

This is of course untrue. Gungor met Elliot while the later was on vacation in Italy and was hired as the Snail Factory's loyalty inspector, and was thus indisposed while Mussolini was in power.

He would stay with the factory until 1978. That was a hard year for the factory and when U Tynjang was laid off, Gungor chose to make public his longstanding affair with the finger-demon and they departed for California, where they took over the bodies of Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner and begat the four horsemen of the apocalypse, who have already starred in their own reality show on E! Entertainment Television.
