|“||The last thing I want is to hurt my children.||„|
| — Charlotte to Lucifer|
in "The Good, the Bad and the Crispy"
God and Goddess were two celestial beings who fell in love with each other. According to Lucifer, they had sex, i.e. "the Big Bang", thereby creating the universe. They had many children together, whom were called angels. They also created a home, which became known as Heaven, the Silver City.
Years later, God started focusing on a new project, humanity. God's project caused Goddess to become distant, and soon both she and her husband began to neglect their family. Goddess began to despise humans and wished for their undoing. Feeling forsaken, Lucifer acted out and rebelled against his father. Angered by Lucifer's rebellion, God wanted to destroy him, but his wife convinced him to eternally banish Lucifer to Hell instead.
Eventually, Goddess's hatred for humans grew even more. She caused floods and plagues, angered at the time and effort her husband put into their creation instead of their relationship and children. For this reason, God cast her into Hell as well, banishing her from Heaven and appointing Lucifer as her warden. Lucifer, believing that his mother remained indifferent when God cast him out, assigned Mazikeen to torture her.
Thousands of years later, five years after Lucifer abandoned Hell to live a life on Earth, Goddess was able to use her limited strength to escape Hell and come to Earth. There, she ventured to Los Angeles, taking possession of various deceased bodies. After three days, she found Lucifer while in the body of Charlotte Richards, which she has since remained in.
Throughout the Series
In "Everything's Coming Up Lucifer", she was able to find Lucifer and show up at his doorstep, experiencing the body's shock that resulted from the soul having previously died.
In "The Good, the Bad and the Crispy", Lucifer refuses to return Mom to Heaven and instead suggests sending her back to Hell to rule, something that enrages her. Mom goes as far as to severely wound Linda and to threaten all of the humans at the Santa Monica Pier. As time is slowed by Amenadiel to save Linda, Lucifer ignites the Flaming Sword and confronts Mom who insists she just wants to move forward and start over. Telling Mom that returning to Heaven is moving backwards instead of forwards which is bad for everyone, Lucifer uses the power of the Flaming Sword to open a tear into a void. Lucifer tells Mom to go into the Void and create a new universe for herself as her way of starting over. Lucifer reminds Mom that if she returns to Heaven, there will be a war and in war there are casualties. Not wanting that for her children, Mom consents and shares a tearful goodbye with Lucifer. She then departs Charlotte's body and goes into the Void. Lucifer removes the key and tosses the sword in after her, forever sealing the tear. Shortly afterwards, as Dan examines the human Charlotte's body, she comes to life, having been resurrected by Mom as she left.
Goddess is fearless and has a strong conviction for who she is and what she deserves. However, she and Lucifer do not share the same opinion when it comes to humanity. Everything that fascinates Lucifer about people repels his mother with disdain, which is evident from that fact that she is trapped in a human body for her stay on Earth. Despite this, her experiences in her human vessel have seemingly piqued her interest in humanity to want to learn more. In "The Good, the Bad and the Crispy", she calls Dan her favorite human, showing that she has developed a somewhat better opinion of humanity than before. Also, he actions when with Dan seem to suggest she had genuinely liked him. She is very dedicated to her family and cares about her children. The loss of Uriel was deeply sorrowful for her.
Powers and Abilities
- Immortality: Goddess has been stated to be eternal.
- Superhuman Strength: During a brief struggle with a robber, she instinctively pushes him, sending him flying across a parking lot and into the wall, which effectively kills him. She was also able to effortlessly lift Amenadiel into the air.
- Cosmic Awareness: Being the Mother of Angels and God's former wife, Mom possesses nearly infinite knowledge. However, she is not aware of events happening outside of her human horizon.
- Vessel Possession: Mom has to use a human vessel in order to interact with beings on Earth. She can possess bodies of recently deceased humans and use each vessel until it dies again. In "Liar, Liar, Slutty Dress on Fire", Mom takes possession of a series of recently deceased humans throughout Los Angeles, but each ends up dead until she possesses Charlotte Richards.
- Healing Factor: Mom is able to heal her vessel's body immediately upon entering it, curing it of any injury and disease. However, this power is limited, as she is unable to heal her vessel anytime after this.
- Resurrection: As she left Earth, Mom resurrected the human Charlotte Richards who had been acting as her vessel.
- Nigh-Omnipotence: Collectively with God, she created the Universe. Originally, she was powerful enough to kill God. Rumors say she caused plagues and floods on Earth. However, her powers have seemingly been greatly reduced after she was banished to Hell. According to her, she is no longer the Goddess of All Creation. This power eventually started to return over time until her vessel could no longer contain her, forcing her to go back to the Void of nothingness to start anew and create a whole new universe of her own.
- Nigh-Omniscience: Originally, Mom was able to perceive events happening anywhere throughout the universe, in Heaven or in Hell. Despite her powers not being at their peak, she was able to gain a superb understanding of human law enforcement after reading a number of books on the subjects for only a few days. This power eventually started to return.
- Physical attacks to her host: Physical injuries can harm and kill Mom's host on Earth.
- God: God was the one who cast her out and imprisoned her in Hell.
- Azrael's Blade: Were she to be stabbed with Azrael's blade while she is weakened and in her human vessel, her essence would be completely eradicated from existence.
- Weak Vessel: As her powers started to return, it became unable to contain her essence and any slight damage to it would cause a burst of light to rupture out of the vessel and incinerate any human caught in its direct path. Eventually, her vessel would likely explode and unleash her true form onto the world. This would be rectified when she willingly left her vessel and travel to another dimension that was completely empty.
