Demonspotting 6: Lucifer

Demon’s wings are as angel’s wings.
Their halos are as shining bright.
They sing as well as angels, too.
But only when it’s night.
– Calvin Miller

Demonspotting 6: Lucifer

Lucifer is one of the Four Crown Princes of Hell, ruler of the east. His element is air. His name means ‘light-bringer’ and he’s associated with the planet Venus, the morning star.

Or maybe Lucifer is just another name for Satan. Possibly not. It’s hard to tell. And he probably doesn’t care for us to know the truth.

Like the other princes of Hell, he was once an angel, but rebelled against God. Some say it was because he started to question God. Some say it was for pride. Some say it was because God told him to bow down to mankind and Lucifer loved God too much to worship anything but God.

Whatever the reason, he was cast out of Heaven and condemned to Hell. And of course he’s trying to take as many humans as he can with him.

When you conjure him–and I wouldn’t recommend it–he appears in the form of a beautiful child.
