Nobody bloody knows [what he wants], because the selfish bastard won't just tell us!
— Lucifer about God
in "Weaponizer"

God is one of the two co-creators of the Universe and the father of all angels along with Goddess. He is seemingly trying to have Lucifer redeem himself, as shown when he has Frank Lawrence cross paths with him.


God's history is not fully known. He and Goddess fell in love with each other and collectively created the universe, Heaven, and Hell. They had many children, known as Angels. However, when he began to work on humans, their relationship worsened. When Lucifer rebelled, God was so angry that he wanted to destroy Lucifer. Instead, by Goddess' request, he cast Lucifer to Hell to punish the sinful dead mortals for their sins for eternity. Some time later, after Mom had repeatedly used her power to attack humans, God somehow defeated his wife and then stripped her of her immense power before banishing her to hell and appointing Lucifer as her warden. When Cain killed his own brother, God, furious by such an act, cursed Cain to never die and should he die, he would be ressurected, with even methods able to kill angels being unable to kill him. He also had Amenadiel brand Cain with his mark that he made never able to be erased, in order to forever remind Cain of what he did.

Circa 1981, God asked Amenadiel to go down to Earth and bless a couple who were not able to have their own child. The couple was John and Penelope Decker, who later gave birth to Chloe Decker. That was the first and only time God asked Amenadiel to do anything like that.

Powers and Abilities

  • Nigh-Omnipotence: God is nearly infinite and unrivaled, except by his former wife, Goddess. He is one of the only two known gods. With Goddess, he created the universe. He also created humanity and is able to curse a human with immortality. Goddess also said that had she not convinced God to spare Lucifer, he would have destroyed him after the rebellion.
  • Resurrection : God ressurected Lucifer after he was killed by Malcolm so he can stop Goddess
  • Nigh-Omniscience: God also possesses nearly an infinite amount of knowledge.
  • Immortality: God can live for eternity, however it is possible for him to be killed.


  • Goddess: As a fellow god, Goddess had similar powers to God before she was severely weakened. According to Uriel, if Goddess regains her former powers, she would be able to kill God.
  • Flaming Sword: The Flaming Sword (and its component Azrael's blade) can kill God and completely eradicate his essence.

  • In the comics, God is known as the Presence, who is the creator of the DC Multiverse and is truly omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent.
  • In "Favorite Son", Linda claims that Lucifer is God's favorite child after doing research on the devil. However in "Sympathy for the Goddess", an ancient Sumerian text claims that the key for the Flaming Sword was given to God's favorite son. The key is revealed to be Amenadiel's necklace strongly implying that he is God's favorite.
  • In "Quid Pro Ho", Lucifer implies Nietzsche is his father's killer. This might be a references to the famous quote "God is dead".
