Biography

Early life

At some point in his life, Crowley studied human and alien magic, and became an occultist, mystic, alchemist, writer, poet, painter, mountaineer, and ceremony magician. After his death, Crowley's soul went to Hell. Years later, John Constantine summoned Crowley's soul and trapped him on Earth[1] in a painting that Constantine stored in the attic of his house.[2]

Constantine kept one of Aleister's book about alien magic and Gary Green enjoyed reading it, taking it from the bookshelf in the house's library and holding it in his room.[1]

Manipulating Astra Logue

Now living in Constantine's house, Astra Logue was bored and went to the attic of the house and Crowley met Astra and Crowley promised him that he would teach him spells if he helped him get out of the painting to which Astra accepted. Crowley taught Astra new spells and they saw Constantine appear and Constantine got upset with Astra for talking to Crowley and Crowley manipulated Astra to transfer his soul with Constantine's and Astra exchanged the souls of Constantine and Crowley and Crowley took over the body of Constantine and Constantine got caught up in the painting and they locked him in the attic.

Crowley captures the Legends.

Crowley kept teaching Astra the possibilities of using the Permuto and they both dressed in fancy clothes for the occasion and Crowley started teaching Astra more magic. He stopped John and Astra's discussion to speak to Constantine alone. Crowley revealed to John to use Astra's powers to be able to reach the great Fountain of Imperium and obtain the most powerful magic, but Constantine did not believe that this fountain was real, and an angry Crowley took Constantine to the attic so that he would not interfere in his plans.

Crowley about to lose his powers.

After locking up Constantine, Crowley went with Astra to create an amulet that will have all the magic possible and to finish it they should steal a soul and Astra suggested using his racist neighbor Robert Truss. Since Astra still had a good heart she tried to take Truss away, but Crowley interfered and stole Truss's soul disappointed in Astra because he was a good person and Crowley became more powerful thanks to the amulet and no spell could harm him and with his powers changed the reality into an animated reality.

Crowley turns into a giant demon.

Crowley confronted Astra and the Legends, who became objects, but were no match for him and locked up the Legends planning to steal their souls. He was surprised by Astra, who chanted a spell to remove magic created by his mother and Crowley was losing his powers and confronted Astra and even Crowley turned into a giant demon to defeat her, but Crowley got tired and lost his powers returning to painting and everything returning to normality. He was locked by John back in the attic and Crowley still wanted to find the Fountain, but John refused to work with him.[2]

Helping Constantine

Since Crowley was the only person to know about the Fountain, Constantine visited him for help.[3] Crowley told John everything there was to know about the Fountain, and he would have to go a long way if he wanted to regain his magic, and explained to him about the map to get there. After returning to the house, Esperanza Cruz started pestering Crowley until John sent Esperanza upstairs. Noelle then came back and took the painting in exchange for giving Constantine magic potion. After Noelle took the painting containing Crowley away, his current fate is left unknown as she said she was going to trade his soul.[4]
