Everyone has a different idea of what Lucifer (as the Christian
devil) is supposed to look like. I did some research on
the net, but couldnt really find a consensus. This image
is an amalgam of many of the most common traits, with a
little artistic license thrown in. A little trivia...a lot
of people don't know why the devil is often portrayed as
a goat. The reason is because it is supposed to be a mockery
to Christ (the whole "Lamb of God" thing).
The symbolism in this image is a little blatant, but it
did come out looking cool. Of all the images I retouched
in Photoshop, this one showed the most dramatic improvement
In the story, I differentiate between demons and devils.
Devils are the actual fallen angels themselves. Demons however
are merely their creations. The devils are unable to leave
hell, but their demon offspring can, which is why they created
them. The drawback was that their power was finite; they
had to take a part of their own essence to create their
"offspring"...the idea being that only God can
really create life. Some of the devils were willing to make
the tradeoff, while others chose to retain their full power
The fallen angels are all marked by halos in their True
Forms (a hold-over of their holy origins). Lucifer is the
only one who wears a black halo, a symbol of his regency.
There is a sort of heirarchy in hell based on which order
the angels belonged to in Heaven. Lucifer, being the only
Seraphim to rebel against God, is at the top.
Demons are the offspring of the devils, and have their
own heirarchy based on who they were created by. The more
powerful was the devil that created them, the more powerful
they are in relation to the other demons. Sador and the
others are referred to by the title "Lord" because
they were created by Lucifer himself.
