Well just to nitpick, Diabolos does give us the 3-4mp/tic refresh so that's probably where he's getting free Diabolos.
Yes, you're correct he does. But practically speaking, how often are you actually receiving his refresh? Only when you are soloing (and he would be a terrible choice because all but one of his offensive pacts are magical) or if you are buffing a mage party and just have him floating at your side. Those don't happen enough for me to consider him truly "free."
And on a sad/angry note, I was marching along my Magian trials getting excited for my Fenrir staff. I check to see the requirements for the next to last trial. . . 200 slimes. Really SE? Our dark based avatar has to get 200 slime kills. I think I'll be happy with -4 perp for a while . . . Can anyone recommend a location other than the 4 slimes in the Mire?
