Character of the Day: Lucifer Morningstar from The Sandman and Lucifer graphic novels by Neil Gaiman and Mike Carey, respectively. We know him as the Lord of Hell, the Devil, formerly the beautiful angel Samael, lamplighter of the heavens. In The Sandman, he resigns as the ruler of the infernal realm because he is “too tired of fighting” and he wants to escape responsibilities; he leaves hell as a protectorate of Morpheus. He moves into the mortal world and runs the piano bar “Lux” in Los Angeles with his faithful ally and consort, Mazikeen. In Lucifer series, his old employer—God—seeks his help for one last time to do a job that angels can’t do on their own—be heaven’s cleanup man among mortals. Lucifer being Lucifer, his handiwork while doing the holy quest won’t really bring good consequences…that is, depending on your meaning of “good”.
