Agas is a devious Demon from Iranian mythology whose name is similar to evil-eye in the old Avestan language. It causes problems and difficulties by distorting the sight of others or creating visions to them. It tempts people into committing sin through visual means such as voyeurism, sexually attractive sights and covetousness. Agas presents visions of what people lust for the most and delights when he sees people falling for his traps. When they do he inflicts diseases of the eyes on those that could not resist temptation.
