|“||Since time immemorial, you humans would always blame me for your failings. You use my name as if I spent my entire day sitting on your shoulders, forcing you to commit acts you would otherwise find repulsive. "The Devil made me do it." I never made any one of you do anything. That is your own doing. I introduced free will yet you began to cultivate it into sin and empower it thereby becoming your own demons. A fact that I tried to prove to my Father and siblings. And yet I was cast out, stripped of my power, and to be burned in the Abyss for eternity... All because I was right.||„|
Lucifer (or Lucifer Morningstar), formerly known as Helel, also known as Satan, the Devil, Light Bringer, the Light Bearer, and the Morning Star, was one of the earliest of God's creations, and the twin brother of Michael. He was regarded as the wisest, greatest and most beautiful angel in all of creation having virtually no equal with only God being his superior.
He is infamously known as the angel that rebelled against God and Heaven and caused the downfall of mankind. Lucifer was also the overarching antagonist during the Illuminati's attacks on society, manipulating individuals to create events that will lead to the Morning Star's release from his tomb. His release also triggered the start of the Apocalypse and became hellbent on creating a New World Order in the wake of the old world's destruction and establish himself as the new God for the sake of being freed from his Father's plans.

Lucifer was said to be the brightest in all of creation and was the most revered to and the most praised among the angels for his beauty and power. This in the process, caused Lucifer to be prideful of himself.
While he is regarded as an Archangel, Lucifer is also said to be a Seraphim and the first one to be created from the choir, thus he was appointed as the prince of the choir. Lucifer illuminated the pathways to Paradise for departed and misguided souls, burning through the shadow of Death to reveal the morning of Jehovah.
So immense was his grace and power that his throne was positioned atop a mountain anointed by God Himself; adorned with burning stones known only as the stones of fire, infused with the fires of the Sun to give light to the dead and the lost as Lucifer guided them to Paradise.
Lucifer is described as being the most beautiful and brightest angel in existence and regarded as the perfection of wisdom and beauty. His beauty exceeded all other angels in Heaven which is certainly impressive as an angel's appearance is indescribably immense to the point where a mere glimpse would make a mortal or even an immortal go mad from their sheer beauty and power. He is noted to have six colossal whitish gold wings, said to look as though it were made of light.
According to the Old Testament, when Lucifer was in Heaven his clothing was adorned with every precious stone – red carnelian, chrysolite, white moonstone, beryl, onyx, jasper, sapphire, turquoise, and emerald – all beautifully crafted for him and set in the finest gold.
However, his wings have shifted into various shades of dark red during his rebellious stage and later becoming shades of black when he fully rebelled. His wings were burned off during his fall and mutated into giant red chiroperan wings. Although his wings would also take the appearance of those that is lightly burning, singed black like charcoal, while embers would flutter off the burned wings.
Lucifer can also take different appearances and forms. The avatars he has assumed throughout the centuries have been immortalized in medieval and Renaissance art and imagery. Among his avatars, the most well known ones are him having the appearance of a Satyr similar to the Greek god Pan, the other being a serpent, a charcoal colored humanoid with large stag-like antlers reminiscent to a Wendigo, a teal or maroon colored humanoid with a skull-shaped face and large black horns that curve upwards bearing a starry pattern. Much like Satan, he is also capable of shapeshifting into other creatures.
While Lucifer's true form could not be described in simple words, he is shown to be a supremely beautiful and handsome being whenever he assumes a more humanly form in order to walk among the mortals. He possesses bright golden eyes, which turn red whenever he is enraged or black with orange irises, and ginger curly hair which was a gold blonde before he fell. His facial features are extremely well-defined, stated to be "perfect like a marble statue" and being described as picturesque and like a painting. While Lucifer's face is described as being beautiful some notice it to be also sad and pitying. In fact, Riza Hawkeye describes his face as the kind that has people's best interests at heart and with great alluring and seductive calmness that one could easily forget his inner malevolence.
The Anointed Son
After creating Heaven and the Earth, Lucifer was tasked by his father to aid in the creation of the celestial bodies across the universe. He set out to create suns and stars that would provide nourishment and life for barren planets that would soon be able to sustain life. Lucifer was then anointed by God as a Seraphim, and the first one among the choir, which in turn made him the prince of the Seraphim.
Lucifer's exalted position and power and being the favored creation of God caused his pride to grow. However, his pride was challenged when God then tasked him with watching over and guiding His creations. It was not until that God created humans that Lucifer's pride began to overtake him and grew more rebellious against his father. It soon led to Lucifer becoming dissatisfied with following God alongside the fact that his Father favored the new creations known as humans, especially when having that a 'perfect' being like him would have to watch over these creatures like a Shepard over his flock.
Lucifer was heavily apposed against "predestination"; a concept that involves the destiny of all beings under God's will and command. Since Lucifer embodies free-will this would go against his very being and purpose thus becoming an existentialist. He was opposed at the idea that God would want all to follow under his guidance and rule with them having no choice nor say in the matter and having to either die or live by God's decree from the moment they are born. Lucifer's paranoia made him see God as a tyrannical ruler and declared that no one should not be in control of their own lives and fate, instead they should be free agents who have control over their choices and actions, and as such, proclaimed that he would rule in God's stead to rid the very concept of predestination. Lucifer rebelled against God, with the support of one-third of the heavenly host. However, Lucifer was overcome by the archangel Michael and the Chariot Merkabah, with God then banishing him and his followers from Heaven.
Ruler of Hell
Lucifer fell for days, or "nine times the space that measures day and night" according to Milton, and when he finally collided within the "Lake of Fire", which is in actuality the seas of Chaos, his collision alongside those of his fallen brethren fashioned the Lake of Fire into the very constructs of Hell itself. Despite losing his grace, he still retained portions of angelic appearance but with some demonic features added and his bright and pristine wings were burned off from the fall and were mutated into red bat-like wings.
With this new form, he conquered Hell alongside the original Princes of Hell and made it his domain. Since conquering Hell, he not only rules over the fallen angels, but also the demons that were native to the Abyss. He soon commissioned a grand and glorious palace known as Pandemonium to be built within the center of Hell in order to fully establish his power and splendor if he was not going to rule Heaven.
Bringing the Fall of Man
Despite his defeat and imprisonment, Lucifer retained his proud and fiercely defiant nature. He declared that the blow he and his brethren have received shall be returned to God by their hands. Beelzebub was the one to advise Lucifer on making the first strike against God by targeting his newly favored creations: mankind. While it differs on who exactly tempted Adam and Eve as it varies between Lucifer, Satan, or Samael, the theme of the tale remains the same with Satan sneaking into the Garden of Eden and tempt one of the humans into disobeying God.
While failing the first two times, the third proved successful when Satan assumed the form of a Serpent and deceived Eve into eating the Forbidden Fruit, promising her that if she and her consort devour the fruit they would rule with equal authority like God. Moreover, should they eat the fruit, they will rule without being under God's strings, becoming their own independent rulers. Adam and Eve's resultant of eating the fruit led to them being kicked out of the Garden and signaling Lucifer's victory.
Creating the Illuminati and Imprisonment
Despite being supposedly imprisoned, Lucifer's spirit wandered the Earth and influenced, as well as change, the course of history itself. His idea of a world without predestination sparked the formation and rising of none other than the Illuminati who formed sometime around Ancient Egypt. Lucifer guided these humans for hundreds of years and had them grow in power to where they would able to suppress history and even alter it to avoid exposition. After the human birth of Jesus Christ, and his subsequent forty days of fasting, Lucifer offered him the world in exchange for his allegiance, but Christ rejected him. And it was not until Mundus, his own son, betrayed him by presumably conspiring with Jophiel to create a tomb for Lucifer to be confined and imprisoned within and have it be locked with mystical seals that can only be broken through prophesied occurrences. However, Lucifer was always steps ahead when it comes to "inconveniences" as he made sure the Illuminati would continue to carry out the mission of altering events to manipulate individuals into freeing Lucifer from his tomb and beginning the New World Order.
Revelations and Grigori Invasion
Lucifer still yearns to return to Heaven and eventually take the throne he feels he is destined to sit on. And he nearly succeeded when he successfully manipulated certain people into bringing about the Apocalypse, cunningly using the Illuminati into setting up a chain of events that led to his freedom and the beginning of his war against God and humanity.
After his defeat at the hands of the combined might of the Dark Knight Initiative alongside others such as the other four main archangels and their angelic armies, Lucifer was chained and imprisoned within Heaven this time. However, it was not until Samyaza and the Grigori invaded Heaven, especially after Uriel's demise at the hands of the fallen Watcher, that Lucifer began to change and decided to aid his brothers in stopping Samyaza from ruling the cosmos by resurrecting Azathoth. Eventually, Lucifer decided that he would instead remain on Earth in order to better understand his Father's creations but is under constant surveillance by the Global Occult Coalition due to Heaven being in ruin from Samyaza's attack.
Lucifer discovered that the Apocalypse had disastrous effects not just on the physical planes of Earth but also the metaphysical in regards to existence. One of these cataclysmic effects was in actuality the release of the Grigori and their successful summoning of Azathoth. It soon became apparent that it was only getting far worse as Lucifer was called into arms by his siblings upon realizing that the awakening of Azathoth and his rampage across creation ended creating ruptures within the multiverse that allowed Pralaya, the Seas of Chaos, to rise once again from her slumber and swallow all of Creation itself back into her. Lucifer, knowing his actions were the cause of this and possibly many to come, decided to personally confront Pralaya herself and with his acknowledgment of his father's words and his mother's advice, Lucifer's Light Bringer powers resurfaced in full and allowed him to engulf the Goddess of the Void in a flash of brilliant white light that forced her back into her eternal slumber.
Scarlet King's Rampage
Lucifer and his siblings knew that these chain of events would not stop so easily as they soon would discover. Pralaya's release only served to weaken the chains that kept the flow of existence in check further and when the final chain snapped the Scarlet King soon broke free from his prison and set about to unmake all of reality by destroying the Tree of Life. While the forces of Earth were dealing with the Scarlet King's seven children and their legions, the fallen Sentinel personally made his way to center of Heaven only to find Michael waiting for him beneath the roots of the tree and the two primordial beings engaged in a ferocious battle.
However, Michael saw that the Scarlet King would not fall so easily and after suffering a grievous wound he was saved by Lucifer and the two archangels battled the Scarlet King together. The two brothers were joined by Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel and even then despite their combined might and the Scarlet King suffering enormous damage the fallen Sentinel still would not yield. During the course of the battle, Michael and Lucifer both developed a plan of both military strategy and cunning, and it involves ramming the seven spears that were once held by the Sentinels of Creatio straight into him before Lucifer would morph an entire planet into a colossal hyper giant which would then be slingshotted by Uriel, who fashioned it into an arrow, straight into the Scarlet King's head and effectively killing him.
Lucifer can be wholly be described as being brash, bold, prideful, charismatic, idealistic, and arrogant. Even as an angel he was a driven, charming, determined and brilliant being. After his fall, Lucifer became a revolutionary and an anarchist, fighting against a corrupt system made by a higher power in pursuit of essential truths but with tragic consequences. The most potent aspect of his personality is his desire to gain true and total freedom from the chains of predestination that was decreed by God and given that he embodies free-will, the concept of predestination where one is not control of their own lives, is an affront to his very existence.
His determination and pride had him convinced that his revolution to shatter the chains of destiny and not be bound under the grand plans of a higher power was truly for the greater good, and that it would bring order, purpose, and direction to the universe while providing benefits for mankind in the long run, he tirelessly endeavored to fulfill this vision. While both willing and very much capable of achieving his own ends by force even against the world, he also knew better than to presume, for all his power, that he could take on the whole of creation by himself and possibly come out on top. As such, he relied equally much on his outstandingly genius-level intellect and excellent mastery in the use of tactics and strategy which he imparted onto his disciple, the Shepherd, who is the head of Illuminati, that allowed him and the members of the Illuminati to remain in the shadows for so long without rousing any suspicion and incite panic, mayhem, and political discord while making it all the more difficult for the many organizations that were roped in to oppress them to try and bring them down.
Aside from his ability to create carefully-woven plans to achieve his goals, Lucifer is an extremely persuasive orator and is known to be a very powerful speaker. Clever and composed, he had a phenomenal command of the art of public speaking, allowing him to mystify and terrify his audiences, allies and enemies alike, inspiring fanatical loyalty with each word, and gaining widespread following for his cause, followers whom he affectionately referred to as his as "brothers and sisters" for his fallen cohorts and called his human followers "friends". Indeed, this skill is such that he was able to convince one-third of the angelic host to join his cause before the impending war in Heaven. When appearing in front of an audience at a rally, Lucifer was treated as a revered celebrity, as was expected of someone with his charisma and wisdom. The demonic inhabitants of Hell even revere Lucifer as a god-like figure. He is loyal to those who are loyal to him and treats them with respect should they prove worthy of themselves. This shows that in a sense, similarly to Vergil, Lucifer would acknowledge those who are strong in both the physical and mental sense. He would test his followers by having them partake in missions that would ensure the progress of plans and see how capable they are when they are faced with obstacles and see if their own personal gains would outweigh his cause.
Lucifer also showcased extreme dislike towards those who are arrogant and possess a superiority complex, ironic since he himself is arrogant and prideful. Example was when he faced off against the Salvator Brothers, expressing his obvious disinterest and being unimpressed by their power and titles. As he brutalized them, he mocked them for their boasting of their power thus crushing their spirits and pride. He was also not above punishing his followers if they display too much pride and overconfidence in their powers, telling them not to underestimate the enemy, another irony and quite frankly hypocritical trait since he himself underestimates his human enemies and considers them beneath him that he barely gives them attention although it is only through their tenacity, determination, and power that Lucifer finally acknowledges them as worthy opponents.
Much like the inhabitants of Hell and most angels, Lucifer harbored nothing but contempt and disdain towards the human race. Like some of his angelic brethren, he addresses them in derogatory terms, calling them "hairless apes" or "talking monkeys" and would not shed a tear if a million of them were slain. This also ties into idealism, as he is idealistic to where he had absolutely no complaints about the murder of hundreds of innocent people as long as that accomplished his long-term goals, example in when he had the four Towers of Babel rise from beneath the Four Corners of the World resulting in untold destruction and innumerable human casualties. He was disgusted by how the humans treated his father's greatest gift to them, which was the Earth, and the advancement of their society and culture only led to pointless wars, deaths, disease, and oppression. The same can be said for the demons as well, as he finds them to be uncouth and repulsive alongside other supernatural beasts. However, despite his views on humans, he does find use for them as he acknowledged that once his goals were complete and that creation would no longer be under the shadow of his father, the humans would serve a higher purpose and would embrace themselves for what they were truly made for since the dawn of creation. Lucifer also displayed curiosity and fascination with the more harmless things that humans have created and discovered.
Lucifer is incredibly manipulative, although contrary to the Christian depiction of being the "Prince of Lies" Lucifer outright refuses to lie, finding it crass and beneath him, and tells the exact literal truth to those he persuades to join his cause. His charisma, wisdom, and soft-spoken attitude, makes it incredibly difficult for one to be deterred by his words. Indeed, Lucifer even persuaded Leonardo Watch to join his cause by promising that once he breaks the chains of destiny, his sister would not be blind from the exchange of the Eyes of God and would no longer be disabled. Lucifer also showed a great trust in his followers, as seen by his trusting to Beelzebub, the Shepherd, and his other Acolytes to "spread the word" of his ideology across the world through the Illuminati even all the way back to Ancient Egypt. His persuasion even affected Vergil, making the Son of Sparda see that no matter the alternative choices he made to prevent his mother's death, it will always lead to the same outcome ending with him escaping Hell and thus breaking the first seal that will unleash Lucifer. This prompted Vergil to cut ties with his friends and family and establish himself as humanity's enemy for even if they stop Lucifer, things will go back to the way they were before with humans actively competing and fighting each other. Lucifer's immense talent as an orator coupled with his charisma, wisdom, and beauty has even garnered him the loyalty of several angels in Heaven.
Lucifer is known for his proud nature. He was extremely confident to the point of arrogance and appeared almost impossible to intimidate, unfazed when Shax told him that challenging the Dark Knight Initiative would be require caution. He was even unfazed when confronting Derous, whose Dragon Install was without any limiters and at its highest peak, being partially annoyed and displaying only anger when Derous would attack him with powerful attacks. Lucifer also displayed sadistic traits, evidenced in him not only mercilessly brutalizing the Salvatore Brothers but also torturing them such as when he punctured Jakob's chest and goaded him into stabbing him with the Muramasa Blade to no avail all while mocking him as being the "Strongest Shield and the Sharpest Blade". Lucifer revels in crushing one's spirits and confidence such as when he not only slaughtered the armies of the united forces of the Dark Knight Initiative with nothing but his hands and soon his sword but also had them see how hopeless it is in trying to stop him for even their trump cards were nothing to him. Lucifer appears to have a twisted sense of pleasure in letting his opponents think they have the upper hand only to quickly crush such hopes. Despite being seemingly not interested in fighting, Lucifer does actually enjoy a good fight as he was elated upon realizing that he would fight his brother Michael once again. He acknowledges one's power and strength during battle. He is also surprisingly honorable as he was unwilling to fight an opponent he considers beneath him although that could be counted as him being arrogant. He was still honorable to where when he makes a promise, he intends to keep it and see that it is fulfilled.
However, in spite of all this, Lucifer is in many ways a tragic figure. He is fully aware of the consequences of his actions and the lengths he was willing to go to reach his goals were fueled by ambition and a fanatical sense of self-purpose, rather than evil intent. He knew that his ideals and goals would have terrible consequences and sacrifices and would not only push him away from his family but also make them turn on him. He also knew that his pride would never allow him to repent as he also knows that if he does, he would go against everything that he stands for regarding free-will. In fact, Lucifer also knew that the rising tension in Heaven would spark a civil war which was something he was trying to avoid at all costs, however, it was not until he discovered what God told Michael regarding his role in slaying Lucifer that he snapped and declared war on the Almighty leading to the War in Heaven. Despite being cast out and shunned by Heaven, Lucifer still cares for and loves his family as shown when he attempted to persuade his brother Gabriel from fighting him and was stricken with sorrow believing that his actions would break his mother's heart and visibly shed tears upon fatally wounding Gabriel. While having a calm and composed nature, Lucifer is capable of terrifying displays of rage when provoked, shown when the Scarlet King threatened his mother Asherah, with Lucifer promptly releasing his incredible rage upon and temporarily beating the Scarlet King into submission. He reacted violently when he learned of Uriel's death at the hands of Samyaza and was hellbent on making the fallen Watcher suffer greatly.
Because of his predicament and his firm belief in his own ideals, Lucifer was prone to breaking down, but this was on rare occasions. His breakdowns only occur when there are individuals that continue to resist him and with success as well, increasingly becoming more frustrated and angry; Ivan Romanov compared it to a temper tantrum. He was also unaccepting of those that can overcome him, especially mortals. Unlike most demons, Lucifer only kills out of necessity and never without reason. At best, Lucifer dismantles and incapacitates his opponent but if provoked enough he resorts to killing. He is not even above killing his own children as when he destroyed Mundus for imprisoning him in his tomb. Even then, despite being surrounded by his fallen brothers, Lucifer always felt like he was alone especially after he fell. Lucifer is reportedly known for having contemplated his past misdeeds and felt remorse and shame for the horrifying things he had committed during his attempted dismantling of God's grand plans with one of the more prominent factor being the civil war in Heaven where he was forced to kill his own siblings that fought against him and his rebel cohorts. His guilt and remorse only worsened when he saw how the results of his goals ended in many catastrophic events on Earth and in Heaven such as the awakening of Azathoth and the release of the Scarlet King.
Powers and Abilities
Being the second-born creation of God, Lucifer is a being of incalculable celestial power. He is among the most powerful entities in all of creation with Immanuel stating that the Morningstar is powerful in ways that defy description itself and commands the legions of Hell, including its lords, unchallenged; the only two beings that somewhat rival him in the depths of Hell are Satan and Beelzebub whom formed the Satanic Triumvirate. Lucifer's power surpasses even the likes of the Ogdru Hem, extraterrestrial beings of unimaginable power that have existed before or during the dawn of creation, and rivals the likes of the Ogdru Jahad whom are the parents of the Ogdru Hem. After being released onto the Earth, Lucifer's mere presence upon breaking through was said to have "shook the globe" and created several unnatural disasters around certain parts of the world. Moreover, his presence also caused supernatural beings and psychics immense agony and trembled from sheer dread.
Lucifer is dangerous to the point where he is able to intimidate other powerful beings such as the Endless. Dream of the Endless outright admitted that Lucifer is much more powerful than he is and stated that he is not even sure if he will be able to survive a straight fight with him. His other siblings like Delirium, Despair, and Desire also expressed fear towards the Morningstar. He is able to unnerve the gods themselves when in their presence despite the enormity of their power. In fact some have expressed doubt and fear at the thought of fighting him, much less defeating him, given that his role in the Apocalypse would also spell their doom. Gabriel himself confirmed that while they may put up a good fight in the end Lucifer will turn them into "finger paint" and convinced the gods to stay their hand and not move against him. Sorcerers like John Constantine showed fear when first learning of Lucifer's impending return, even outright admitting that he has no known method of taking him down much less fighting him.
If he is provoked to violence, his preference seems to be to use fire and light as a weapon. His original role was as "God's lamplighter", in which he used his will to condense clouds of hydrogen into star-masses and set them alight. As terrifying as they are at times brief, battles with Lucifer usually begin and end with him drawing down the flames of a super-heated main sequence star and incinerating to ash anything in the immediate area. Nevertheless, has proven himself to be quite an extraordinary and adept combatant, showing to be methodic, basic, but brutal and analytical. He was able to defeat many of the other lesser archangels that tried to stop him, bested Gabriel in combat, defeated nearly all the forces of the Dark Knight Initiative, either without or slight effort, rendered both Dante and Vergil in a coma, even after they unlocked their true hidden potential they still struggled considerably against him, brutally beat down the Salvatore Brothers, and fought on equal terms with Michael; in fact the battle between Lucifer and Michael was said to have set the cosmos ablaze from the sheer force of their power alone during the War in Heaven. Some of his most impressive feats, much later on in the story, involves him being able to clash and hold his own against Azathoth with Michael's aid, defeated Pralaya with his Light Bringer powers, brought down the Scarlet King with the aid of his four siblings, and even held out against the Outer God Nyarlathotep despite the fact that the Crawling Chaos was more powerful than he was.
- "Better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven."
- "You know NOTHING of my family. I loved my brothers and sisters. My Father. And my Mother. But the fact that I needed to shepard you flawed and abominable pieces of dust and clay is an insult to my very purpose and existence. The fact that my Father favored you apes over His own family is an offense towards our hearts. The fact that He has so much faith in you even after I outright proved how flawed, deceptive, and murderous you all could be and moreover had the unmitigated GALL to banish me further down in the Pit for my transgressions...IS UNFORGIVABLE."
- "After eons of reigning within the Abyss I knew but only one reason that my Father would not listen...He would be the victim of senility. And no one would want the Almighty to lord over all creation in such a condition. Thus, I would appoint myself as the new lord of the cosmos and rule in His stead but as blindness and naivety would have it my siblings would not allow for it. Our ongoing disagreements over the matter eventually sparked a civil war of which I tried to avoid though what is the use when you are within the confines of pre-destination that was written by a senile old man?"
- "A liar am I? Now I find that to be quite offensive. Those Biblical authors and the God-praising fools all bestowed upon me the title of 'Prince of Lies'. Let me assure you that I am no deceiver nor trickster of any sort. If you want to make a deal then I will tell you the contents of my side of the deal. If you want to hear the truth I will tell you the truth. And I will tell you the exact literal truth. But be warned, my dear. The Devil's truth is but a path towards damnation. After all...the road to Hell is paved with good intentions."
- "Satan. The Adversary. Prince of Darkness. Such titles mean little to me. But to you they speak volumes. Well, I can assure you that you have every right and reason to tremble at your knees from the mere mention of such epithets. For I am the one who waged war against the Almighty. I am he who rebelled against His wishes and demands. He whose power shook the very throne of God and set the plains of Heaven ablaze with my flames. For I refuse to be bound by fate and will shatter the chains of illusion to reign over freedom! Now, I recommend that you stand clear of the path to my objective. For it is not danger that will you find if you do not comply...it is inevitable destruction."
- While in modern literatures, Lucifer and Satan are treated as the same entity, the name Lucifer was never identified with Satan until the Latin translation of the Book Isaiah. A specific passage in the book refers to a King of Babylon, who is described to fall from heaven and is called Helel ("shining one"), a name which refers to the Morning Star or Day Star (the planet Venus), which subsequently became translated as Lucifer. The Book Isaiah was recalling an ancient myth about a celestial being, trying to usurp the place of gods, but was cast into the underworld as punishment for his pride. European medieval literature also credits Lucifer with his attempt to overthrow God, while distinguishing him from Satan.
- Lucifer would occasionally be mocked for being a "momma's boy" as Lucifer enjoys being spoiled by his mother, Asherah, though she loves her children equally. It is also implied that Lucifer loves his mother more than he loves his father as he never required to put effort into gaining Asherah's attention while he tried many times in God's case despite the fact that Lucifer was God's favorite.
- Like all angels, Lucifer is genderless and as a result has no concern over the concept of sexuality. This also ties into the fact that Lucifer is uninterested in the concept of romance though it has been hinted several times that he has taken a "liking" towards certain characters but it was never established if it was out of sheer curiosity or genuine affection.
- During his self-imposed exile on Earth after the Grigori's attack and Azathoth's awakening, Lucifer is discovered to have a passion for classy activities such as refined cooking and elegant art or aesthetics.
- This paints him as being the usual depiction of the Devil in that, in the words of Abigail Hawkins, "He's a dandy. Charismatic. He likes refined language, art, dressing beautifully. Added with his looks he's not only very fascinating but also very hard to understand. You'd think you would know the basics but really you haven't touched the surface. And that's what makes him so dangerous."
- Lucifer is known to enjoy reading. He has a particular fondness towards books that explore the themes of tragedy, tyranny, madness, thriller, adventure, and dystopian.
- His favorites appear to be Paradise Lost, Ulysses, Crime and Punishment, Frankenstein, The Master and the Margarita, Odyssey, Aeneid, Macbeth, Hamlet, The Ethics of Ambiguity, and Oedipus Rex.
- It is implied that Lucifer was used as a muse for some of the authors to aid in the making of their stories with the only confirmed one being John Milton who wrote Paradise Lost.
- While he does not need to eat, drink, or sleep he nonetheless enjoys Earth's food. He prefers the more elegant and refined type of food and drink and ones that he personally makes for himself and his guests but has an extreme dislike and aversion towards junk food.
