Residing at 666 Hell's Bells within what locals call "the pit," Lucifer has been dealt an overall bad rap due to lousy PR and a deal struck with his once good friend, Big J. It's Lucifer's job to keep Hell as ghastly as possible, though the screams of the damned occasionally prove difficult to ignore. Aside from his routine devilish duties, Lucifer oversees the Seven Deadly Sins, sending his unruly staff on assignments while trying to maintain a peaceful balance between light and dark.
Lucifer is known to get overly involved with the lives of those he touches, and often bends the rules to serve his personal sense of right and wrong. He can be manipulative, corny, stern, at times plain terrifying. His personal life is somewhat ambiguous, particularly following his divorce from the First Woman, Lilith, over what he calls "irreconcilable differences." From outside appearances, Lucifer's aims are not to find personal happiness, rather to ease the suffering of the damned souls he maintains, and ensure those he cares for never have to want for anything.
