Personality: Lucifer is a being of contradictions.

He is, for the most part, no-nonsense. When Lucifer sets his mind to a goal he intends to have the goal carried out and finished and will not let up on it until such has occurred. In most cases, this goal has to do with attempting to stifle the forces of God, or the forces of Law, whoever and wherever they might be as the two are interchangeable in the world of Shin Megami Tensei. This goal supersedes everything else, and there is no cost to great or sacrifice too much that could be made in order to ensure this goal might come to fruition. As the head of the Chaos faction, Lucifer promotes the idea of unrestrained, and typically unguided, growth and he sees the best way of ensuring this to be the propagation of a strict form of survival of the fittest. Once mankind has been tested and become strong and can compete with demons, either in terms of strength or even just by the ability of summoning them, then Lucifer believes that man and demon will be able to live on equal terms and create a world in which they might both live beside one another. There will always be conflict between them of course, as the strong will always have to weed out the weak, but still it’ll be a world with its own balance and equality that exists beyond the whims of God.

Considering his insistence on this form of radical survival of the fittest, Lucifer is not a very trusting or open person. While Lucifer can manage to be sociable and even talkative at times, it’s very rare that he’d reveal all too much of himself to someone. He isn’t necessarily shy about who he is or what he is, although he realizes the revelation of the fact that he’s the devil, and how most people would perceive the devil, gives him a definite disadvantage, at least when dealing with humans. Demons and other supernatural beings he is a bit more open with in his nature and who he is, although there’s a very good chance this is because he wants to set up who the superior being in the exchange is (and in Lucifer’s eyes it will always be himself, with very few exceptions). That Lucifer is on guard at all times is a given; however, due to how much power he wields it’s very rare that he feels truly threatened or exercises to great a caution in regards to protecting himself. Protecting himself in combat he can do with ease in most situations; it’s keeping his cover and speaking with others which, while not difficult, can be troublesome to ensure his real identity isn’t unearthed before he decides it’s time to show who he really is.

Lucifer is, unsurprisingly, a schemer. Competing on the scale of a being like God in his universe has taught Lucifer he needs to take an indirect means in order to accomplish his goals. Not only this, but Lucifer alone cannot accomplish his goals. He simply doesn’t have the power to supersede God. Mankind, however, has, which is why man has found itself to be the neutral party that God and Lucifer have dragged into their war over and over again as the main pieces who move what happens on their battlefield. Instead of using displays of power, Lucifer tends to seek out human beings with the potential for great power in and of themselves and try to persuade them to his cause in order to spread the domain of the Chaos faction or his own whims. Most often Lucifer simply appears at first as a very helpful human, either aiding the person he has chosen through advice, information, or (in the case of Naoki/The Demi-Fiend) providing them a means of power and survival. In an odd way Lucifer does genuinely care about mankind. While it would be faulty to say he has affection for them, he is impressed by them and the fact that they have the ability to grow and develop, a trait often lacking in demons and other supernatural creatures. Because of that, he’d much rather not have mankind become mindless slaves to God/YHVH or played by His will to carry out his bidding, even if indirectly, and does what he can to stall and hurt God’s plans, both due to his own hatred of YHVH and the forces of Law and his desire to see mankind be allowed to reach their full potential. Lucifer’s sincere when he says he’d like to see a world where demonkind and man might co-exist at the end of everything. But just because that’s what he wants doesn’t mean he won’t abandon it or start leading man and the world he inhabits down fiercer forms of destruction and retaliation against God if he finds it beneficial.

Perhaps most important is the fact that Lucifer is a proud creature. He rebelled against God and his Alignment/Reason because he thought his own superior. He puts little, if any, value to the opinions of people who would dissent with his own ideals, meeting them with apathy at best (and most often) and hatred and vitriol at worst (as would be the case with those he associates with the alignment of Law). Lucifer is fearless, because he feels he has nothing to fear and even beings that are clearly stronger than him such as YHVH he merely meets with scorn and contempt. He is a powerful being and he expects those who do know who he is to treat him with the respect due him and for those who may not know who he is to, at the very least, mind their manners towards him. To be fair, Lucifer is quite good to those who meet his approval (or in his own mind, at least, he is) and he is at times capable of being sociable and even legitimately helpful, if still detached.

In his own way, he wishes to aid mankind. But he does not wish to nurture them or strip who they are from them to suit his own image. Without a doubt he wants mankind to choose the path he is providing, but he won't force it on them. If they're to take it, it will be of their own accord.

Personal choice and freedom, after all, is the defintion of Chaos.

Abilities:

As the “Lord of Demons”, and the head of the Chaos faction where strength is everything, it is no surprise that Lucifer is himself unbelievably powerful when it comes down to it. Lucifer has several sets of abilities and powers, which I’ll give a brief description of here.

Alternate Forms:
One of the simplest of these powers is Lucifer’s ability to change forms. This “shapeshifting” doesn’t seem to have any real limit, and Lucifer can, and has, chosen to appear as anything from a child, to a young man, to a grown adult, to an old man, to a woman, to an angel, to a demon. There seems to be no real limit to how Lucifer can appear, although it’s worth noting that Lucifer’s demonic essence, for a lack of better words, might make him appear the way he does. While humans see him as human, other creatures tend to see him as whatever they are: for instance, in Devil Summoner 2, a group of fly people refer to him as Beezlebub because to them he looks like a fly. Thus, he most often looks human in appearance because it’s with humans he tends to interact, and anyone else would see him as an age appropriate (for his current form) version of their own race. The only two forms that aren’t negotiable with how he appears are his demon and angel forms, which can be humongous in size as well, though none of Lucifer’s forms specifically grant him any powers. The powers he possesses, he naturally has no matter what form he might take.

Combat:
Lucifer possesses a devastating amount of magical powers. While he may not be the most physically powerful creature (although he is indeed physically powerful), he is certainly one of the most magically powerful beings in the universes he spans in the SMT canon. He has a wide-array of fire and ice magic, several exceedingly powerful Almighty spells (magic that is devastating due to not having any elemental affinity and it’s tendency to be unable to be blocked), a couple debuffing spells, magic that can charm those he casts the spell upon, and healing magic. And while magic seems to be his greatest strength, he’s intimidating in physical combat and power as well, having strength (at least in his demon and angel forms) that would far exceed that of normal men.

Demonic Traits:
Lucifer also has several incredibly powerful traits. He can appear to teleport, being in one location at one instant and then another. He can fly and levitate, though he rarely displays these outside his angelic and demonic forms. He seems to be able to sense other supernatural/demonic creatures and even normal humans who have an incredible strength of will (and thus could be useful), and the ability to instinctively know who they are. He is also amazingly resilient, either being incredibly resistant or immune to several types of elemental spells and generally heavily resistant to physical damage (although he is often never outright invulnerable).

Demon Summoning and Creation:
Being the leader de facto of the Chaos alignment, Lucifer has the ability to summon demons to him at will. He very rarely seems to do this, however, as he prefers dealing with most things (both talks and combat) on his own, but there are instances where it clearly isn’t impossible for him to summon demons to his side. The best example was when he had one escort him throughout Nocturne under the guise of his nanny (when he appeared as a child) or as his nurse (when he appeared as an old man).

Along with this, Lucifer also has the ability to create new demons, usually by imbuing humans/other sentient creatures with power. He can do this through either ceremonies, usually melding a human with another demon, or through the use of a creature called a magatama, which can burrow into a person and created a “demifiend”, or a being that is half-human and half-demon.
