"12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to Hell, to the sides of the pit."
- Isaiah 14:12-15 (King James Version.)
Lucifer, also known as The Devil, is an incredibly powerful Fallen Seraphim. He is the ruler of Hell, head of the Seven Princes, and the father of Demons, with some Demons even viewing him as their own god. Lucifer was the second Seraphim to be created, with the first having been Michael. Before his fall, he was God's most favored creation, but when God asked for all Angels to bow down to humanity, Lucifer refused. He waged a war against God, but was banished to Hell by Michael.
Lucifer was once the most beautiful and beloved Angel in all of existence. God favored Lucifer the most of all his Angels. Because of his elevated status among the other Angels, Lucifer was very proud, but also very arrogent. When humanity was created, he was unwilling to accept that he was no longer God's favorite, and when God commanded all those in Heaven to love his new creation more than himself, Lucifer refused.
Lucifer asked Michael to stand by his side in his rebellion against God's orders, but Michael denied Lucifer's request. But even without Michael at his side, Lucifer gathered a massive army comprised of one third of all the Angels in Heaven to fight with him in his rebellion. The battle cost countless lives, and shook Heaven to its core, but after what seemed to be eons, Lucifer, along with every Angel that stood by his side, was cast from Heaven by both God and Michael himself. It is said that as he was cast from Heaven and began to Fall, four of his six wings were ripped from his back, leaving him with only two.
Lucifer's time in Hell has caused him to grow resentful of not only humanity, but his former brothers and sisters in Heaven as well, and the same could be said for all the denizens of Hell. Even now, the armies of Heaven and Hell are constantly at war with each other, and this conflict has caused both sides to turn a blind eye to mankinds suffering under the plight of the Fears. It is said that Lucifer eagerly awaits the end of days, as the influx of damned souls from such an event would surely give him the power he needs to storm Heaven.
