Azazel is a Fallen Angel / Demon from Vertigo Comics. First introduced during Sandman #4, he is an immensely powerful demon and a member of the Triumvirate of Hell. After Lucifer abandoned his position as the King of Hell and left the realm's key to Dream of the Endless, Azazel became the new leader of Daemonkind, and came to Morpheus as a petitioner for Hell's key. As a "sweetener" of his demand, Azazel had imprisoned the soul of Dream's former human lover, Nada, and claimed that she would be slowly tortured and devoured should Hell not become his.
When the control of Hell fell to the angels Remiel and Duma, under direct orders from God himself, Azazel rebelled against Dream, though was effortlessly defeated by the Endless. As punishment, Dream imprisoned him inside a small bottle. He remains there to this day.
