Lucifer, also known as Helel or The Devil, is the oldest Archangel and the eldest daughter of God. She is the older sister of Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, and Uriel. She is the original self of Mastema, the wife of Richard Mariner and mother of Adrian and Natalia Mariner. She is the creator of the Demon Race and the mother of the Seven Prime Demons as well as the overarching antagonist for the Gates of Gehenna Arc, the Pre-Apocalypse Arc, and the War of the Seven Seals Arc. Lucifer is the main antagonist of the Apocalypse Arc. Later on, she becomes a sort of major supporting character.
Long before Time was a concept, before the groundwork of Creation was laid out, Lucifer, initially called Helel, was born from the swirling infinite power of the Ohr Ein Sof of Yesh. As the firstborn, she was as beautiful as the swirling lights and concepts of existence. Her name was Helel, the Day Star. She was adored and loved by her "parents". Wrapped tenderly in the "embrace" of Shekhinah, while praised by her aunts and uncles. Most of all, Helel was likened to her father in both grace and power. Soon after, her younger siblings would be born. Michael came first, followed by Raphael, then Gabriel, then Uriel. After an unspecified period of eternity had passed, Yesh and Ayin began their final climactic battle. Naturally, the Archangels sided with their father against their aunt. In addition, Maveth and Sephira showed their support for Yesh, following Shekhinah's example. With the combined might of all of them, they were able to buy Yesh enough time to banish and seal her. Turning her own self and concept against her, Yesh sealed Ayin within a prison world known as Tohu, the World of Chaos. Helel volunteered to serve as the key to the sealed gate of Tohu. Remnants of Ayin's power that had been expelled during their battle settled and intermingled with Yesh's expelled energies. This would contract before becoming the background layer from which all layers and stories would emanate from and where all space and time, concepts and notions of duality and plurality is dissolved and nullified into the single unity beyond everything.
With the Ein Sof being laid as the groundwork, Yesh added his own power, crafting the rest of Creation. An infinite amount of universes and realities were crafted by her. Her actions along with the actions of her siblings triggered a spark within the Ein Sof. From that spark, a separate area from the Ein Sof, a lesser realm birthed itself and became the A"K. The birth of the A"K sparked into life concepts such as Void, Time, and Space, giving them being and self-consciousness.
With the passage of Time being set and other cosmic concepts gaining their own will and existence, the young Multiverse slowly came into shape. What would be an innumerable number of years would pass before the Universes were seeded with life. With the Creation of the Soul, life began to appear with Helel watching as mortal beings came into existence for the first time, alongside her father's creations, the Angels. Her father also created something else. A group of beings that would serve as the intermediary between her siblings and mortals. Of course with the passage of time, the beings grew arrogant and rose up. Their ravenous hunger for power drove them to attempt and consume Creation and return it to a state of Chaos. Their leader, Mana-Yood-Sushai, would wage war on the Cosmic Entities. The War tore apart and destroyed 98.7% of the Multiverse, reducing it to nothing. With no choice but to seal them, Yesh sent down Helel and Michael to defeat and seal Mana-Yood-Sushai and his ilk deep within a prison realm which would later be known as the Superbia Terrace of Purgatory. Mana-Yood-Sushai would have a special seal within Purgatory at its heart.
Eons would pass and Yesh descended down to Assiah, where he established a good foothold. They disguised themselves amongst the various powerful beings that were birthed from Sephira known as Gods. Helel watched as her father helped craft a star known as Sol and from the remaining dust, assisted in the creation of a world known as Earth. Following this, Helel descended from Heaven alongside the other Angels and walked the Primordial Earth with the other Pantheons.
Adam and Eve
The story of Adam and Eve alongside the Archangel Helel is a well-known story. The story of the Archangel Helel tells of an Angel who was loved by Heaven. The adoration she was subject to forced her to grow arrogant and conceited. Legends say that when God created Man, Helel grew jealous and hated them. Hated the fact that her Father could love a species so flawed and so weak. Her jealousy, coupled with her immense pride, caused her to rebel against Heaven only to be repelled and defeated by her fellow Angels, who cast her from the Highest of Heaven down to the Earth where she birthed Demonkind. In hatred for her Creator, Helel abandoned her God-given name and took on the name Lucifer to spite God.
Eventually, she would lead her children and their descendants in a war against her Father, starting the Holy War. It was said that she did this out of revenge for casting her from her place in the skies and to claim the throne of Heaven for herself and declare herself as ruler of all Creation. In the end, Lucifer fell and was slain, due to the heroic efforts of the Seraph of Mercy, Zadkiel.
At least, that's what the rest of the world was told.
To those who knew her, Helel was a kind girl who loved mankind dearly. She was close to Kali and Ma'at, who quickly became her best friends, having grown with them. She had reverted herself to a child so that she could grow up with the two deities who she had befriended.
The true circumstances of Helel's fall were completely unknown to the rest of Heaven which led to the development of rumors with the aforementioned one being the most common and most believed rumor. However, the truth was much different from the rumor. From the get-go, Helel fell in love upon the sight of her younger siblings. She devoted her time and effort to becoming the best possible sister for Adam and Eve, having no one left to dote on since Michael and the other Archangels had grown and Sandalphon and Samael no longer wanted anything to do with her affection. When God said "Bow before Man and love them as you loved me", Helel was the first in all of Heaven to kneel before an infant humanity. She spent many days within the Garden, watching Adam and Eve frolic and play. She witnessed them fall in love. So when she heard of a plot from the other angels and some of the Gods to enslave Eve's children and possibly Adam and Eve themselves, Helel would not allow such an atrocity to happen. She descended into the Garden, disguising herself as a serpent to blend in and hide from the other angels. She met with Eve and led her to the Sephirot Tree, a tree that contained the manifestation of a small portion of Shekhinah's power.
|“||Sister, is what you say true?||„|
|“||Yes. Some of the Angels and Deities plan to use you and your wife, as well as your children for their own twisted pleasures. As your guardian and sister, it is my duty to make sure such an event never happens so I implore you, partake of the Fruit, and know power beyond your wildest dreams. The power to protect your family and stand up to the Gods||„|
Angered at her audacity, God recalled Helel back to Heaven and cast Adam and Eve from the Garden. Helel stood before her father in Araboth and argued against him, calling him blind and admonishing all the Angels for their greed and impure thoughts. She stated that she wanted nothing to do with a Heaven that would trample upon a helpless race. She stated that she would kill anyone that would lay a finger on Adam and Eve. Fearing death, several angels stood helplessly as she walked out however, some angels were brave.
Several of the Seraphim attempted to attack the Archangel only to be swiftly defeated. As she was about to kill Zadkiel, one of her assailants, Michael engaged Helel. Helel took the form of a massive dragon with white fur and black scales with a reddish tint on her scales. Their battle shook the entirety of Creation as God was forced to send the two to the Ein Sof so that Heaven would not be destroyed. Eventually, Michael called for the assistance of his siblings and Helel was cast through all the subgradients of Creation and down to the Earth.
On Earth, feeling that her Father and Heaven had betrayed her and humanity, Helel cast her god-given name aside and called herself Lucifer, which meant Light Bringer. She vowed to protect her siblings and their descendants from Heaven and the other Gods. She vowed to become the Shining Light that guided Mankind into a brighter future. To achieve that goal, she needed help and from her power, Lucifer birthed an entire race built to oppose and counteract Heaven and the other Divinities. Demons.
In the event that Lucifer would attempt to attack Heaven, God created Hell for her and at its center, created a prison in the event that Lucifer attempted to attack Heaven. A countermeasure just in case, despite knowing that she never willingly would.
Even with all that, Lucifer still loved her family and never did, devoting all of her time to her younger siblings and her children.
The Great Flood and The Holy War
Centuries after Adam and Eve were banished, they were brutally murdered by their descendants who became jealous of their long lifespan. Lucifer appeared in Heaven, barging through armies of angels effortlessly to beg her father to give them peace. God revealed that Adam and Eve had been granted another chance at life. Lucifer became pleased but had mixed feelings upon learning that they were to rule Purgatory. Adam walked forth and told Lucifer it would be alright and asked if she could watch over Cain and Aclima now that they died. Lucifer accepted, sending her eldest daughter, Lilith, to watch them. Not that she needed to. Lucifer was aware of how close the four were. But she needed to make amends for not being there when their parents and brother were murdered. Lucifer bowed before her niece and nephew and begged them for forgiveness. The two forgave her, not really knowing why she was apologizing in the first place. Lucifer offered both of them the opportunity to become a demon. Aclima declined due to her status as a Prophet, however, Cain accepted and Lilith took him as her personal Knight.
Lucifer was there at the meeting between Divinities where her Father's faction was beaten in a vote to wipe out mankind. Lucifer was the messenger God sent to Noah to build the Ark to save mankind before God eventually sent a deluge to flood the entire planet.
The Holy War would become a trying time for Lucifer. She acknowledged that her children had built a society all on their own so they didn't need their mother to coddle them. She began to act more as their Queen, ruling them with a fair yet iron grip. She granted her Seven Eldest Children the right of rule across all of Hell, with Lucifer maintaining the final say on anything which rarely happened.
She was very well aware of the skirmishes between Angels and Demons across the Multiverse. It all came to a head when news reached Hell of a brutal massacre of demon children. She was naturally angry but she knew that both sides instigated it and preferred not to do anything. Lucifer blessed their corpses and made sure that they got their well-deserved peace. However, her own children subverted her political power in their anger and declared war on Heaven. She had lost her grip on Hell and she soon found herself leading an army against her own Father. However, Lucifer washed herself of the war and stood off to the side, watching. She watched as her children were slaughtered, mutilated, and raped by Gods and Angels alike. Their deaths weighed heavily on her heart as she tried to comfort them, granting them speaking moments with their souls before she had to let them go. There were many times during the Holy War where she considered taking her own life but didn't. She needed to stay strong.
The War escalated to the point where an entire dimension collapsed due to the conflict. Deciding it was enough, her father finally allowed Lucifer and her siblings to end to War after hundreds of millennia of standing on the sidelines. The Archangels immediately ended the War within a few hours with Lucifer banishing all of her Demons back to Hell and Michael sending all the Angels back to Heaven. Lucifer and Gabriel then altered and removed the memories of all non-angelic and non-demonic life in Creation. However, those who participated requested the Archangels to allow them to keep their memories in case the Angels and Demons start another War. Raphael seeing the logic in this agreed to their request and convinced her siblings to allow them to retain their memories.
However, after the Holy War, things were never the same. Lucifer was blamed for instigating the war, despite never participating or playing any hand in the events that led to the war. She was an outcast amongst her own kingdom with some of her children loathing her for not allowing them to wipe the Gods and Heaven from the face of Creation. Lucifer received a message from Heaven to meet to discuss a treaty between leaders. Wishing to meet with them, Lucifer arrived at the undisclosed location where she was ambushed. Zadkiel, using the Sword of Ehud, stabbed her. However, even a weapon as powerful as a Hand of God, was incapable of killing her but the weapon had one more function. Lucifer found herself being sealed, her entire essence being sucked into the center of Hell. She cursed Zadkiel, but in a last-ditch effort to escape, Lucifer cast her consciousness from her body and used whatever power she had to craft a body for herself.
After her avatar was killed, Lucifer's consciousness returned to her original body within the Cage, where she awakened. Her grief at losing her husband broke her mind as Lucifer immediately became extremely depressed within the depths of Hell. Unbeknownst to her, Lucifer had a small, microscopic portion of Ayin's consciousness attached to her. The Ayin Fragment worked its way, forcing Lucifer to live through her worst fears, memories, and moments. It reached a point where her mind snapped and Ayin completely took over, planning to use Lucifer as a vessel to free her main portion.
Touted and sought after by many male angels and gods, as well as some goddesses and female angels, Lucifer was known for her extreme beauty that was capable of ensnaring and capturing the attention of others just by being in the room. Kali describes her as a beauty that was as distant and unreal as the very things she is named after. Lucifer has snow-white hair that shines brightly when hit by light. Her eyes are as blue as the sky itself with people finding themselves staring into a bottomless blue pit whenever they look into them. Following her fall, Lucifer's primary eye color shifted from sky-blue to blood-red. However, she can alter her eye color back to her original one but chooses not to. She possesses pale skin, attributed to someone who spends their entire time inside. Her form is a slender and curvaceous figure with a large bust and a shapely rear.
To Lucifer, her wings are her pride and the one feature of her that she feels is the only beautiful part of her. Her wings are massive and powerful, being able to cast a large shadow in front of her. She possesses seven pairs of wings, signifying her status as the former Princess of Heaven and the leader of the Seraphim and Archangels. According to Azrael and Azazel, before she fell, Lucifer's wings were white than snow itself. The lower ends of her primary and secondary feathers would glow with a reddish glow whenever she used her powers. Following her fall, Lucifer's wings bled black and became darker than the night sky itself.
Lucifer's color scheme and choice of clothing are rather simple. She dresses casually most of the time. Her closet for casual wear primarily consists of sweaters, hoodies, and pants with some skirts and blouses thrown in. Most of her clothes are black and red with the odd white thrown in there. While she was in Heaven, Lucifer was known for wearing white and blue suits with skirts as well as a long waist cape that framed her legs. During the Apocalypse, Lucifer wore a black one-piece business suit with a red button-up shirt as well as black dress shoes. She continues to wear this past the Apocalypse but often switches into casual clothing when she isn't conducting official business.

However, even in her weakened state, she was still capable of fighting possibly on par with the Elder Gods as well as affect the Cosmic Entities in the Upper Unity of Olamot. Her release was also simultaneously shaking all of Creation itself.) | Outerverse Level (Mastema is an infinitesimally weaker version of Lucifer, that while is a match for the Elder Gods, infinitely pales in comparison to her original self. Lucifer, as a Primal Entity, exists above the infinitely transcending dimensions of Atziluth and Adam Kadmon where the Cosmic Entities reside. Adam Kadmon is said to be the sum total of reality, being expressed as the total of all real numbers. She is capable of moving and perceiving the Ein Sof, which is a level of existence completely transcendent of all layers and stories of existence, and functions as the source of all dimensionless voids, ideas, possibilities, and stories formed from the clash between Yesh and Ayin. Lucifer has also demonstrated the ability to create a Universe on the same size and magnitude as the Ein Sof.
