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.
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 his a favor.
Favor for John Constantine
Powers and abilities
- Desire revelation: Lucifer has the ability to make people reveal their deep desires.
- Immortality: After Constantine, Mia, and Diggle did business with Lucifer, the latter referred the three as mortals, presumably meaning that Lucifer is immortal.
- Club owner: Lucifer has 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 for a short time. It is a 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 begin.
- 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. Besides which, the Hell featured is a dark and ash-filled endless maze of doors with the damned locked behind them. (As opposed to the city seen in the Arrowverse.)
