The Dark Lord, also known as Satan, The Devil or Lucifer Morningstar, is a recurring character on Netflix's Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. He is portrayed by Luke Cook.

He is the main antagonist of Part 1 and Part 2 and the secondary antagonist of Part 3. Lucifer is a fallen archangel and the embodiment of evil and free will, and is worshiped by satanic witches.

Early Life

Before he became the Dark Lord, he was formerly known as the Archangel Lucifer Morningstar. However, he was cast down from Heaven by God. Wandering through the desert after refusing to submit to Adam, Lilith encountered Lucifer Morningstar, who helped him heal. In return for her eternal service, Lucifer promised to one day have her sit by his side on the throne of Hell.

Not long after the fall, Lucifer’s Angelic form began shifting into that of a beast with a goat-like head and hooves. At some point, he adopted the name "Satan" and was worshipped by witches, whom all wrote their name in his Book, exchanging their souls for power.

Millennia later, the Dark Priest of the Church of Night in Greendale, Edward Spellman, and his mortal wife, Diana, asked for the Dark Lord's help in conceiving a child, as they were unable to do so for themselves. The Dark Lord then managed to impregnate Diana, resulting in Sabrina Spellman, with whom his aim was to fulfill a dark prophecy to claim the world as his own.

When Harvey Kinkle was a young boy, he appeared to him while he was exploring the Greendale Mines, terrifying young Harvey; a traumatic memory which continues to haunt him in his teenage years.

Edward presents Sabrina to the Dark Lord

The Dark Lord appears in Sabrina's dream. Wandering through the woods, Sabrina watches as her father Edward Spellman presents her as an infant to the Dark Lord.

Dark Lord makes a wager with Lilith

Lilith summons the Dark Lord to Mary Wardwell's home and tells him that she cannot protect Sabrina if she does not know what his plans are for her. The Three Plague Kings asserted that the "half-breed must not ascend." The Dark Lord answers that Sabrina will be his prophet on earth and his herald. Jealous, Lilith tells the Dark Lord that Sabrina is not worthy as she will balk at doing evil. The Dark Lord suggests that they strike a wager to discover Sabrina's true nature; good or evil. He adds that when he is proven right, Lilith will have to resume her service to him and never question his will again.

Dark Lord commands Sabrina to seal gum

During the night, the Dark Lord appears in Sabrina's room, telling her that it is time for her to make her dark devotions to him. She tells him that she will not do what he wants her to do. He answers that he warned her, when she signed his book, that she can not deny him. After Sabrina asks him what he wants, Satan orders a surprised Sabrina to steal a pack of gum before leaving.

Sabrina enters Cerberus Books intent on stealing a pack of gum, as tasked by the Dark Lord. Lilith, still maintaining her persona as Mary Wardwell, stops her from doing it, telling her that it is not like her. She offers her money to pay for it, which Sabrina refuses, saying she does not want the gum anymore and leaves the store. Lilith casts a coin look over her shoulder at the Dark Lord, seated at a nearby table.

He appears to Sabrina as she understudies Dorcas for the role of Lilith at the Academy of Unseen Arts's play The Passion of Lucifer Morningstar. He tells Sabrina that the role should be hers. He suggests that she pulls a pin holding a rope with a sandbag hanging above Dorcas. Sabrina pulls the pin and the sandbag falls on Dorcas. It turns out that it was just an illusion; the pin is still in place. Sabrina starts repeating "I won't do it" out loud, with the others looking at her, asking who she is talking to. She answers that she was talking to no one and they all leave for lunch.

While rehearsing with Nick, Sabrina experiences a flashback with Harvey and tells Nick she should go. As she stands to leave, the Dark Lord appears, and Sabrina chokes on an apple. She struggles for air before passing out. Prudence, Agatha, and Dorcas rush over to help.

Sabrina, in tears, pours gas on the school's floor and lights a match. As she is about to start the fire, the Dark Lord stops her, saying she proved her heart.

In her cottage, Lilith kneels in front of the Dark Lord and cleans his hooves as he reminds her he always wins. Telling her she must be lonely, he gives her back Stolas, her familiar, as a consolation prize before vanishing. With that, Lilith remarks that she'll be damned before Sabrina comes the Dark Lord's herald.[2]

Lucifer encounters Lilith in the wasteland

In the beginning, Lilith had been wandering the wilderness for months, if not years when everything outside of the Garden of Eden was still a stony wasteland. She encountered Satan, whom she describes as a beautiful angelic man with two wounds on his back. He lifted her up and in return, she healed the wounds caused by the loss of his angel wings. For she was not only the first woman, but also the first witch, Lilith, and he Lucifer, the Morningstar, soon to be their Dark Lord. She was his handmaiden and he was her master. In the present, the Dark Lord emerges from Hell into Greendale Wood in his true form.

Lucifer meets Dorian

At Dorian's Gray Room, Dorian Gray is visited by a naked Lucifer. Gray doesn't recognize the Dark Lord at first but takes a liking towards him. The Dark Lord reminds Dorian of their bargain; eternal youth in exchange for his soul. Dorian is taken aback upon realization, apologizing to the Dark Lord for his poor manners. As the Dark Lord proceeds to demand Lilith's whereabouts, she surfaces. The Dark Lord expresses surprise that she did not greet him in his angelic form. Lilith claims she's been busy preparing the way. Nevertheless, she doesn't seem ecstatic to see him and the Dark Lord notices this too. Lilith is unhappy that Sabrina is inheriting the Throne and Crown that was promised to her. But it is not her turn yet. Lilith sips her drink, mumbling "not ever". The Dark Lord promises that she will lead the armies of Hell when the gates open. Lilith is not satisfied, however, and asks why he chose her of all people. Avoiding her question, the Dark Lord claims he is bored with her self-pity and orders her to bring Sabrina Spellman immediately. Lilith fearfully obeys, leaving him to go do his bidding. Meanwhile, the Dark Lord will be attending to certain wayward members of his flock.

CAOS-Caps-2x09-The-Mephisto-Waltz-31-Lucifer-Dark-Lord

Lucifer scolds Father Blackwood

At Dorian Gray's Room, Father Blackwood bends the knee to the Dark Lord and pledges fealty. The Dark Lord orders him to rise and give a report about the Church of Night. Blackwood proudly informs the Dark Lord of his efforts to bring the coven back to the "old ways", renaming it Church of Judas. Seemingly unimpressed, The Dark Lord inquires about Sabrina. Blackwood tries to explain that Sabrina is dangerous, but surely Sabrina can't be too dangerous for the High Priest of Judas, the Dark Lord counters. Having had enough of Father Blackwood's nonsense, the Dark Lord silences him and scolds him for his poor job with the whole Church of Judas rebranding. As such, the church is now required to exalt and report to Sabrina in addition to himself. A dismayed Blackwood scoffs but is quickly challenged by a towering Dark Lord. Do you question your Dark Lord, he asks. Blackwood stiffens. Followingly, The Dark Lord orders that Sabrina's coronation and all attending festivities will be held at the Academy of Unseen Arts. Blackwood and his coven must accommodate them henceforth. He then dismisses Blackwood and Prudence.

Lucifer and Lilith before the existence of Greendale

At first, the Dark Lord was kind and gentle. They would spend their days near the place he'd fallen and hit Earth, where thousands of years later would become the town of Greendale. Maybe that's why Greendale's so messed up, Sabrina remarks. Lilith explains that Greendale is a nexus and a cursed place. When Sabrina asks what happened next, Sabrina explains that the Dark Lord turned into a dark, horned creature after the fall of humanity. But Lilith continued to serve the Dark Lord because that is all she ever knew. Sabrina dismisses her for being weak.

Lucifer asks for gratitude from Sabrina

At the far end of the mahogany table, the Dark Lord welcomes Sabrina and her familiar Salem. Not bothering with small talk, she asks what he wants from her. The Dark Lord demands respect and love but settles for gratitude. The Dark Lord gave her beauty, strength, and power above all other mortals. However, she did not ask for those things, but the Dark Lord thinks otherwise. The truth is that she's loved the power he has given her. He compliments Sabrina for her wrath and describes her as the fit consort he has been waiting for millennia. When Sabrina suggests Lilith, the Dark Lord responds that Lilith knows that her purpose is to serve. Sabrina's purpose, however, is to blow the Horn of Gabriel for him, opening the Gates of the Pit for the aristocracy of Hell to attend her coronation. She will wear the Crown, sit on the throne, and remake the world in Hell’s image once they have danced the Mephisto Waltz. He vows that all the demonic hordes will be freed and that the two of them will reign over Hell on Earth for all eternity. Well, that's certainly not an option for Sabrina, she has school to attend. The Dark Lord laughs and reminds her that she said no every step of the way and yet here they are. It's about time she accepted that the Path of Night is her only path and that every choice that she has made has led her here. He says that He has made quite sure of that and reveals that Nicholas Scratch has helped advance his plan.

Lucifer orders Sabrina to blow the horn

Nick appears and tells Sabrina that the Dark Lord told him to befriend her but admits that he fell in love with her. Sabrina spits in his face. Nick says that he would never hurt her but that he did not know he was advancing the Dark Lord’s agenda. Sabrina is angry but the Dark Lord tells her not to blame him because it wasn't his choice; there is no such thing as choice, there is only his desire. Sabrina asks if her father conspired with him but the Dark Lord reveals that Edward Spellman is not her father, he is. Sabrina experiences a flashback to the vision of the twins and her father offering her to the Dark Lord. The Dark Lord tells Sabrina to submit and to blow Gabriel's Horn at sundown in the clearing where she signed her book. Sabrina flees and Nick tries to stop her. Salem hisses at Nick. The Dark Lord tells Nick to leave her be and that his work is done.

Lucifer takes on the Spellmans

In the woods, Lilith tells Sabrina to exploit the Dark Lord's greatest weakness: his arrogance, pride, and ego. She must flatter the Dark Lord and be in his thrall and should keep him facing her at all times. Lilith explains that the Dark Lord has two wounds on his back which have never fully healed, where his wings were ripped from His body. Lilith’s plan involves Sabrina trapping his foot with a horseshoe so that her aunts can stab him in the back with daggers forged in Megiddo, where Christianity was born. The Spellmans carry out Lilith's plan but the Dark Lord reveals that only the Spear of Longinus can kill him. He points the daggers at Zelda and Hilda's neck and throws Ambrose to the ground. The Dark Lord forces Sabrina to pick up Gabriel’s Horn in return for sparing the lives of her aunts. Sabrina grabs the horn from that altar and blows Gabriel’s Horn. The Devil says that the damnation game begins. He warns Sabrina not to defy him again and tells the Spellmans they are expected at her coronation.

Sabrina and Lucifer unite

At the Throne room, the Dark Lord and Lilith sit. Lilith claims that the aristocrats of Hell and Sabrina are awaiting her word. She has arranged a treat for Satan, a "bal masqué" of the flamboyant flavor he so loves. When signaled, the glamoured guests come down the stairs singing and dancing with their masks on. Afterwards, the Dark Lord crowns Sabrina, naming her Sabrina Morningstar, Proud Lady of Pandemonium, Maiden of Shadows, and Queen of Hell. The guests praise them. Then the pair dance the Mephisto's Waltz. During the dance, Sabrina flatters the Dark Lord to distract him from the guests' chants. Upon the Dark Lord's realization, they remove their masks, revealing themselves as the Spellmans and Sabrina's mortal friends. The Dark Lord is angered by her defiance yet again, but Sabrina replies she is a Spellman first. Ambrose throws the Acheron Configuration, trapping the Dark Lord inside.

Lucifer posses Nick

As they congratulate her for a job well done, the Dark Lord breaks his way out of the Acheron Configuration. Lilith finally steps in and restrains the Dark Lord before he can harm Sabrina. They will need a stronger prison, and the answer to that is the human body, as it was created by the "False God". Nick volunteers in Sabrina's stead, reasoning he is the best binder and conjurer since Edward Spellman so he will be able to contain him. He confesses his love for Sabrina a final time, before trapping the Dark Lord in his body. The demon-possessed Nick tries to attack Sabrina but is knocked unconscious by Ambrose's sleeping spell.[6]

Lucifer wrestles with Nick

Inside Nick’s head, he and Lucifer wrestle for control. Lucifer demands that he submit, but Nick refuses. Sabrina comes to Hell, and Lucifer pulls her into Nick’s mind so that they can talk. Although, she betrayed him, he needs her to claim the crown, however, Sabrina refuses. She simply wants Nick back. Lucifer explains that only she can restore the balance in Hell. When the balance is off in Hell, so it is off in Heaven and on Earth as well. To preserve the realm, Sabrina must preserve them all. He also informs Sabrina that the "old ones are coming." Also, Lucifer informs Sabrina that only a true queen has the authority to liberate Nick, and the Kings will never declare Lilith queen, so if Sabrina wants Nick back, she’ll have to claim the throne. Nick appears and advises Sabrina against it. He tells Sabrina to forget him and move on. Lucifer interrupts to remind Sabrina of what must be done; either claim the throne or lose Nick.[7]

Lucifer teases Sabrina from Nick's body

Sabrina visits Nick in the Academy's dungeon. She notices his clubbed foot and realized that her father has taken control of Nick’s body. Sabrina reminds Lucifer that he’s bound in Damascus steel and circled in salt, preventing him from escaping. She demands to talk to Nick. Lucifer pretends to allow Nick to regain control, which Sabrina is aware of and therefore asks to see his tongue. She points out that a forked tongue is a dead giveaway for the devil. She repeats her request, and this time, the Dark Lord allows Nick to surface. Sabrina promises him that she’s going to find a new prison for the Dark Lord. Nick pleads with her to hurry as she can’t hold on much longer. As Sabrina leaves, she unknowingly breaks the salt barrier.

Lucifer casts a spell on the Church of Night

Lucifer sits in the dungeon of the Academy, just beneath their feet of the Church of Night, angered by their abandonment of him and willingness to pray to Lilith. Lucifer opens his mouth as dozens of beetles crawl out and escape through the break in the salt circle.

Sabrina enters the dungeon and inquires about Jimmy Platt. The Dark Lord informs her that Jimmy was devoutly pious until he got into a horrendous car crash years ago. Mangled and dying, he called out to his false god to save him. Lucifer got there first. He offered Jimmy a simple standard deal: another seven years for his soul. He agreed and since then Lucifer has been giving him extensions. However, he only required an innocent soul. Children was Jimmy’s predilection. Sabrina refuses to offer him any more extensions, but she can’t drag him to Hell because he has a little girl tied up somewhere. Lucifer warns Sabrina that if she doesn’t bring Jimmy Platt to heel, then she’ll lose her throne to Caliban, who plans to expand into Sabrina’s realm.

Lucifer is proud of Sabrina dragging her first soul to Hell

Sabrina visits her father at the Academy, who upon first glance determines that something is different about Sabrina. She replies that she dragged her first soul to Hell. Lucifer asks how did it make her feel. She replies that it made her feel like she’s capable of anything. The infernal bailiff brings Faustus in. Closely followed behind by Zelda, who intends to assist Sabrina with the soul transference spell.

Lucifer meets Faustus inside his mind

Lucifer proposes that they wrestle, but Blackwood sees no reason for it. He’s seen beyond the veil of their world. He knows there are powers more vast and cosmic than a single vainglorious fallen angel such as Lucifer. Lucifer wonders if Faustus is referring to the old gods. Faustus explains that he speaks of the eldritch terrors. Older than the oldest gods.[8]

Lucifer tempts Nick

Nick enters Lucifer’s cell and punches him with brass knuckles. Lucifer tortured him for what felt like an eternity, and now it’s Nick’s turn to get some retribution. Nick repeatedly hits Lucifer, though it seems to have little effect. He states that he missed Nick’s virility and that there will always be a piece of him inside Nick. Lucifer explains that Nick isn’t actually punishing him, more so Blackwood’s flesh suit. He then looks to Nick and explains that it’s really himself who he wishes to punish. Lucifer's words resonate with Nick, and he leaves. Inside the flesh Acheron, Faustus and Lucifer discuss Nicholas and how he’s fraying at the edge. Lucifer is certain that Nick will return to see them, and when he does, Lucifer will have something for him that will make Nick do anything they want.

Nick returns to the Academy to kill Lucifer. However, Lucifer offers Nick red mercury, which will give him the best rush of his life, as well as dragon’s tears. He’ll go up, but never come down. He offers Nick both in return for Nick setting him free.[9]

He claims that he’s visiting the homes of good Christian folks to warn them that evil is afoot. The Devil has come to Greendale. Mary admits to having felt his presence and the fact there's so many things she has no explanation for. He tells Mary that Satan has allies in the form of witches, such as Sabrina Spellman and her family. He informs Mary that they seek to destroy her and make her unholy. He tells Mary how the Devil can disguise himself as loved ones. Hearing this, Mary begins to suspect that Adam is actually the Devil. Lucifer asks for Mary’s permission to confront him, which she gives. Lucifer goes in the back and finds Lilith, he then forces her to reveal herself to Mary, who runs out the door in shock.

Lilith gives the Dark Lord a sleeping bath

Lucifer sits in a bathtub as Lilith pours water over his body in preparation for the separation ritual from Blackwood. She puts Lucifer to sleep and wakes up Faustus, allowing him to gain control of his body for the first time. Now that Lucifer is asleep, they have business to discuss. They must both perform an act to ensure they both remain alive after Lilith separates him from the Dark Lord.[10]

Lucifer awakens in his body, free of the flesh Acheron. He confronts Lilith, who he plans to kill for the part she played in usurping him. However, Lilith reveals that she gave Blackwood the Mark of Cain before he left, which means no one can hurt him. And in exchange, he gave Lilith the Dark Lord’s seed. She is pregnant with his child. A male heir to his throne. He tells Lilith that she has not been pardoned, rather a stay of execution. He then orders her to summon the Infernal Court and tell them that "Daddy’s back, and he’s very, very angry."

Lucifer returns to Hell take control of the throne. He orders his disciples to kneel before him. When Purson, of the Plague Kings, questions his authority, Lucifer snaps his neck. Caliban confronts Lucifer, introducing himself as Prince of Hell, though Lucifer doesn’t acknowledge his claim. Beelzebub interjects to inform Lucifer that they're in the middle of the quest for the three objects of the Unholy Regalia. Infernal protocol must be followed and the contest must be seen to the end. Caliban and Sabrina each have found one item. Whoever finds the third, Judas Iscariot's 30 pieces of silver, will sit upon the throne of Hell, and not even Lucifer can interfere with that.

Lucifer and Lilith arrive and inform Sabrina that the Plague Kings have called for the third and final challenge. It’s up to Sabrina to retrieve Judas Iscariot’s 30 pieces of silver and secure the throne of Hell for the House of Morningstar. However, Sabrina would rather attend to her aunts. Ambrose and Prudence tell Sabrina that they'll deliver the effigies to Hilda and Zelda and protect them from Blackwood until they recover. The power siphoning might have worked, but Ambrose fears it is only temporary, and with a war brewing with the pagans, they’ll need power, which Sabrina could gain in winning the Unholy Regalia. Lilith reveals that she’s pregnant and that Sabrina has a little brother on the way. Sabrina tells Ambrose and Prudence to protect her aunts while the rest of the coven stay hidden in Hell.

As Caliban receives counsel from the two remaining Plague Kings, Beelzebub and Asmodeus, Lucifer and Lilith prep Sabrina for the final challenge. Lucifer tells Sabrina that only Judas himself knows where the silver is. And Lucifer is the one person who can take Sabrina to Judas. Lilith warns the Dark Lord against interfering. Should the kings find out, the challenge could be deemed a forfeit. As the challenge commences, Lucifer telepathically tells Sabrina where to find Judas. In a volcanic cave, embedded in the walls with Cassius and Brutus. Together, they make up the three worst betrayers in history.

While Sabrina manages to collect the coins, she is tricked by Caliban into turning them over to him. Caliban has also been arranging a coup. He then reveals to Sabrina that Lucifer and Lilith have been embedded into the stone walls as well. He encases Sabrina in stone completely and leaves as he has a mortal world to conquer and a tenth circle to create.[11]

Using Faustus Blackwood’s time egg, Sabrina goes back in time and warns her past self against giving the silver over to Caliban, who's posing as Judas. Past Sabrina then confronts Caliban, who is wearing a glamour to appear as Judas. Rather than giving him the silver, she permanently seals him in the stone.

Lucifer, Lilith, and the Plague Kings await the return of Sabrina and/or Caliban. Past Sabrina returns to Pandemonium with the silver to claim her throne as Queen of Hell. Lucifer congratulates Sabrina for bringing honor to the House of Morningstar and tells her it is time for her coronation. Sabrina says that she’s ready to be married to Hell. In her last act as regent, Lucifer orders Lilith to prepare Sabrina for her coronation. As Sabrina prepares for the throne, all cross the realms, things returned to their natural balance.

Lucifer and Lilith watch as Sabrina Morningstar claims her rightful seat at the throne of Hell. Her disciples, including the Plague Kings, kneel as she approaches her throne. They then applaud as she reaches the top of the staircase, looking down on them.[12]

In his angelic form, the Dark Lord is a handsome, well built man, with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Additionally, he also has two wounds on his back where his wings used to be.

Personality

The Dark Lord is an evil being. His primary motive is to corrupt humans, gain control of their souls and fill the world with evil and sin. He is a tyrannical and terrifying individual who demands the utmost devotion and loyalty to him from his human followers, and will stop at nothing to have Sabrina Spellman follow his path of night and sell her soul to him.

Furthermore, as noted by Zelda in her dreams, the Dark Lord is said to be a carnivore, heavily implying he has a taste for the flesh of living beings on earth, especially humans. This is reinforced when he kills and eats Adam Masters.
