|“||"I have been thinking about my purpose as the Incarnation of Evil. Is it to generate evil in the mortal world, or merely to locate existing evil? Am I here to encourage greater evil, or to discourage it by the threat of infernal punishment? Am I supposed to defeat God and become the major figure of the universe, or to be defeated?||„|
Satan is the main antagonist for the greater part of the Incarnations of Immortality series, being the embodiment of evil, and taking every opportunity to take advantage of new officeholders for the other incarnations to further his own schemes. He is one of the two Eternals, the other being God, who are a step above the other incarnations in terms of the domains they carry, with the entire universe of Hell being under his iron grip.
However, like other incarnations, the role of Evil shifts over time. Parry, the incarnation's current iteration, was originally a sorcerer's apprentice who lived in France during a series of crusades and inquisitions. He was ousted from his town, his wife and adopted father killed, which led him to become a friar who would eventually hold great influence in the Church. He would eventually foil a scheme of Lucifer, the Incarnation of Evil, which would lead him to be corrupted and brought to the side of evil by the demoness Lilith. However, this would backfire on Lucifer, as Parry reflected a spell of the dark lord's and sent him to Hell, whereupon Parry took on the mantle of Evil, for better or worse.

All Incarnations are exempt from the traditional cycle of life and death for as long as they hold their office and can't be damaged in the physical sense with exception. Like Death, Satan is vulnerable to being killed by other mortals if he is not careful), Magic, Can travel between dimensions, Can pinpoint the location of those who invoke his name, Telepathy (Is aware of any thought made by those who are aligned with evil), Precognition (Aware of the dates of death of any given individual.

Without souls, however, he has no way of escaping the void)
Attack Potency: Athlete level (He is toned, and decently strong despite his profession. He could break out of rope restraints with his bare hands), Below Average level to Street level with transformations (As a wolf, he instantly killed a man by biting his neck), likely higher with other spells (Claimed he could take out an army with a fire spell). His staff ignores the durability of creatures of Hell and those possessed by them | Low Multiverse level (As an eternal, his magic is superior to Orb's, which was capable of erasing all four realms from existence, and comparable to God's, who brought into existence all four realms)
Speed: Athletic Human (Kept up with trained soldiers) with Subsonic reactions (Comparable to his wife, who cast a spell after a crossbow bolt had been fired at her), Superhuman with transformations (Should be comparable to real life wolves, who can run at at 31/60 mph. Can fly at 70 mph as a crow)
Lifting Strength: Athletic Human, higher with transformations (Dragged a bed with his dying wife on it as a horse)
Striking Strength: Athlete Class, Below Average Class to Street Class with transformations
Durability: Athlete level (Honed his body to an unknown degree. Can take punishment from trained soldiers), Below Average Human level to Street level with his transformations (The species he turns into can take hits from each-other), much higher with defensive spells (Reflected a spell cast by the Incarnation of Evil, although this was mostly in-part due to a weakness of Lucifer rather than his own prowess) | Low Multiverse level (Can't be harmed directly by other Incarnations)
Stamina: Above Average (Managed to run away for an entire day straight, transforming back and forth from his animal forms)
Range: Line of Sight with Mesmerisation, Tens of meters with most spells, Several kilometers with weather control | Planetary with most powers, Multiversal with teleportation and several other powers
Standard Equipment: His Staff and Cross | Sometimes carries a bag of souls on him to pass through the Void
Intelligence: Above Average (An adept mage who has studied extensively in the art of magic, as well as the humanitarian arts such as music, painting, literature, and the sciences. Was able to outsmart the current incarnation of Evil on occasion) | Genius (Has centuries of experience in magic, manipulation, and executing plans)
Weaknesses: Many of his spells are taxing, or not combat applicable. Vulnerable in his small animal forms. | If unwary, he can have his magic deflected on him. Performing universally good actions can oust him from his position as Evil. His power over the demons and creatures of Hell is based entirely on their perception that he has power over them.
- Evil functions quite differently from the other Incarnations, and like Nature, does not really have tools of the office. He does, however, get full control of Hell and a veritable army of demons to do his bidding. His only real secret is that of the demon-banishing spell, which keeps him in power – namely, that there is no such spell. The demons' belief that the spell exists is a lie that must be maintained, else it would undermine his power. As such, he is aided nearly exclusively by liberal use of his silver tongue. However, in most cases Evil does have a significant amount of "magical" power available to perform various tricks and effects.
