This article is about the character set in the Lucifer universe. This article only contains information relevant to the Arrowverse. For information regarding that universe, please see Lucifer Morningstar.
- For the individual also known as "the Devil", see Satan.
Presumably in ancient times, Lucifer became known as the Devil. He later found his way to Earth-666. At some point, Lucifer met John Constantine, who helped him with an ordeal regarding Maze, for which he owed him a favor.
Favor for John Constantine
Powers and abilities
- Angelic physiology: Being a fallen angel, Lucifer harnesses a number of divine powers.
- Desire revelation: Lucifer has the ability to make mortals reveal their deepest desires.
- Immortality: After Constantine, Mia, and Diggle did business with Lucifer, the latter referred the three as mortals, presumably meaning that Lucifer is immortal.
- Dimensional awareness: During the crisis, he displayed some knowledge of the multiverse when he told John Constantine that he wasn't happy seeing him again on "his" Earth.
- Skilled business acumen/Leader: Lucifer managed to gain ownership over a club.
- Timed purgatory teleportation card: Lucifer gave John Constantine a card that transports presumably any desired number of individuals to purgatory. It's about the size of a playing card with an illustration of a devil playing the piano with the words "The Devil" at the bottom. Once the picture completely fades, the soul(s) of the user(s) will be completely decimated and trapped there for eternity.
Behind the scenes
- Tom Ellis confirmed in an interview that Lucifer's appearance in happened during the 5-year gap in between Lucifer coming to Earth and when the Lucifer series began. This puts John Constantine's visit to Earth-666 during the Crisis (accompanied by John Diggle and Mia Smoak) sometime between 2011 and 2016 in that Earth's timeline.
- It is confirmed later in the series in it's final season that Lucifer is unaware of time travel being a factor. Therefore not only did Constantine's visit take place in the past in his series, he was not even aware of them being from the future.
- The card with an illustration of the Devil playing the piano is a reference to Lucifer's expertise as a pianist.
- In the DC Comics, although the senior member of the Satanic Triumvirate, the First of the Fallen, a.k.a. Satan, is sometimes confused with Lucifer, who is, on the other hand, the fourth of the fallen.
- It is unclear whether Earth-666 and Earth-1 have separate Hells or if the Triumvirate came to power after Lucifer abdicated, as in the comics.
- However, the show Lucifer explicitly states that there's only one Devil of Earth-666. In addition, the Hell featured is a dark and ash-filled endless maze of doors with the damned locked behind them, by contrast to the city seen in the Arrowverse.
