- I have no power over people's sins. I actually get a bad rap for that. I have the ability to draw out people's forbidden desires. The more simple the human, the easier it is. The more complex, the more challenging and exciting, really. But no, the actual sins, the sins are on you people.

Lucifer Morningstar is a fallen archangel and the former ruler of Hell. He eventually got bored with his job, and left the position to become a nightclub owner in Los Angeles, operating an establishment called Lux
Leading His Rebellion
After the Universe, including Heaven, was formed, God and Goddess lived happily with their children, including Samael, but God started to focus on developing a new creation dubbed humanity, which led to him becoming distant and neglectful to his family, also weakening his marriage. Samael, who changed his name to Lucifer from hurt and neglect, began gathering support from the other angels, to dispose God, thinking he'll do better. This rebellion ended in his defeat and banishment from Heaven, and tarnished relationship with his siblings.
Lord of Hell
Lucifer governed Hell for millenia, becoming a dreaded and notorious figure, personified as evil, entitled the Devil, Satan, Dark Lord, Prince of Lies and Lord of Temptation. During his stay in Eden, he became the first best friend of Lilith, Adam's ex-wife, and her offspring became Lucifer's army, amongst which, Mazikeen, became his best friend and loyal soldier.
Coming to Earth
Lucifer would occasionally come to Earth, becoming acquainted with many historical figures, such as Oscar Wilde, William Shakespeare, Napoleon, Attila the Hun, and also met some in Hell, such as Franz Kafka and Hitler. Lucifer eventually decided to move to Los Angeles permanently, abandoning Hell, taking with him Mazikeen, with John Constantine's help, a favor he settled by aiding them in retrieving Oliver Queen's soul from Purgatory. Lucifer developed a hedonistic lifestyle and dealing with people of many industries, leaving many favors.
