Lucifer Morningstar
Fallen Angel
Why do they blame me for all their little failings? They use my name as if I spent my entire days sitting on their shoulders, forcing them to commit acts they would otherwise find repulsive. 'The devil made me do it.' I have never made one of them do anything. Never. They live their own tiny lives. I do not live their lives for them.
~ Lucifer to Dream in Season of Mists


Lucifer Morningstar is a fallen rebel archangel who was cast out of Heaven and onto Earth as punishment for leading the revolt of the angels.

Before the DC Verse was created, in the void outside all creations that is the Primal Monitor, Yahweh created two brothers infused with literal unlimited might, Michael Demiurgos and Samael, later called Lucifer Morningstar. After both were formed, Yahweh guided them, instructed them as to how to use their powers, and then they formed the creation we all know as the DC Multiverse.

Eons ago, Lucifer Morningstar rebelled against the Kingdom of Heaven and was cast into a shapeless void known as the Chaoplasm. The Chaoplasm was transformed into a desolate and barren expanse known by many as Hell, the final destination for damned souls. Here Morningstar ruled, awaiting the day he could be freed.

His goal is to have "true free will": break from the influence of his father and creator, Yahweh.

This is the profile of Lucifer Morningstar as seen in the Vertigo continuity, not the New 52 version

However, do not scale from the 2018 Lucifer/Books of Magic/The Dreaming comicbooks, as they are reboots that seem to completely ignore the entire Mike Carey and Holly Black runs.
