Amenadiel was an angel from Heaven. A throne, in heaven hierarchy. He detested Samael, now called Lucifer Morningstar, for revelling against the plan of God, and always worked in a way to destroying him in the name of Heaven.

Even when his hate for Lucifer was widely known especially by the Presence, he was tasked with giving an special mission to the fallen angel. He travelled to The Lux to ask for Lucifer assistance in destroying an old god from the Navajos, in return of a price of his naming. Lucifer wished a letter of passage. Lucifer did his work without problem, and the letter was given by Amenadiel to Lucifer.[1] Morningstar later used the letter to create a new empty reality, outside of the boundaries of God, something that enraged Amenadiel.[2]

The throne decided to gather an army of angels from heaven, and attack Lucifer due to the creation of the new reality, even without receiving any word from God. His army suffered heavy losses, but in the end they took to the city of Los Angeles with the door to the new empty reality. Lucifer forced them to retreat, though, when confronted with the option to let Michael die in this reality, destroying everything at the moment of release of demiurge energy, or do it inside the new empty reality, creating a new universe in the process. Amenadiel did not accept defeat without before forcing Lucifer to promise a confrontation in one year in the future, in Hell, in the land of Effrul.[3]

With his new creation made, Lucifer created a new world to practice being God. Amenadiel became a serpent and tempted Lucifer's version of Adam and Eva, and proved them faulty. Amenadiel thought he outsmarted Lucifer, but Samael had him in account, and used Amenadiel as a "quality control" measure, to avoid the same mistakes that God made in his own creation.[4]

By their own pact, Amenadiel went one year later to confront Lucifer in the land of Effrul, in Hell. Knowing well that Lucifer was weakened by the masterminded work of Izanami he hoped for a quick and easy victory, and sent a couple of assassins to be sure. No matter what he planned, in the end Lucifer won the fight, and bent the rules far enough to win but not to be disqualified. Amenadiel lost his life against Lucifer, and the thrones were cast down in heaven hierarchy.[5] Not that any of it mattered to Lucifer.
