The Devil was a being which was believed to oppose God in Christianity. The nun Sister Fenella at Godstow Priory in Oxford would put a cross at the base of the sprouts she would cook with to make sure the Devil couldn't get in.[1]

A man from an Arctic village thought Lyra Belacqua and Iorek Byrnison were devils when they visited the village to look for Tony Makarios.[2]
