This demon has some interesting tactics, including teleporting and slowing down time. Both you need to avoid.

Don't stray too far or Geryon will make short work of your Familiars, instead, remain in the mid-range. He'll occasionally target you and that's okay. If Geryon charges, his blade will glow with energy, simply evade right to avoid damage and counter using Shadow while constantly charging Griffon's attacks. If you need a quick escape use Griffon to dodge back and Nightmare to revive your familiars if they get stalemated in a difficult position.

Geryon's other attacks include slow-moving electrical blasts and a shockwave. When powering up the wave it's critical to call Shadow back; Griffon will likely be safe in the air. Just stop the attack and Shadow will return to you.

During the mid-point, Geryon will start teleporting and slowing down time. This is key, prioritized evading and avoiding those time bubbles. Attack only when you can and keep yourself at a distance. Being in that time bubble with Geryon close is basically death. Keep using Nightmare when you can and eventually, Geryon will fall.
