Lucifer (Demon)

Lucifer is the ruler of hell, and to quote The Book of Oberon, "the father of all devils." He is the first angel to defy God and fall from grace, leading a number of angels who followed him down with him.

Although Lucifer is certainly the best-known demon in the Christian tradition, he is censored from grimoires derived from Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum, including the Lesser Key of Solomon.
