This is all of Lucifer's minor relationships throughout the series.
Amara, also known as the Darkness, is Lucifer's aunt. The two seem well acquaintanced and may have had some interaction prior to God's war against Amara, which Lucifer partook alongside his archangel siblings. God won the war and locked Amara away in a prison with a Mark acting as both a lock and key.
God entrusted the Mark to Lucifer, his most cherished son, hoping he could withstand its corrupting effects. However, Lucifer succumbed to jealously, leading to his rebellion against God and Heaven. In response, God imprisoned Lucifer just as he imprisoned his sister, inside a Cage bound by many seals. The Mark had, by then, been passed on to Cain.
Amara eventually escaped her own prison through the destruction of the Mark from its final host, Dean Winchester, which led to a massive shockwave throughout all realms, including Hell, where Lucifer's Cage was, and by which it was subsequently damaged.
This enabled Lucifer to reach out and send visions to Sam Winchester, luring him back to Hell with a promise to help defeat Amara. It was Castiel who became convinced of this tale, and Lucifer managed to escape the Cage by using him as a vessel. Lucifer later confessed that defeating Amara required a team effort and he alone was not enough, so he sought out alternative means such as using Dean as bait or acquiring a Hand of God.
When Lucifer took possession of the Horn of Joshua, he was confronted by Amara and the two were reunited, with Amara noting how Lucifer had changed. Lucifer responded by attempting to weaken her using the Horn's power, but failed since the Horn wasn't powerful enough. Amara proceeded to kidnap him and take him to her lair. Once there, Lucifer tried to negotiate for an alliance, but Amara chose to use Lucifer as bait by torturing him over a span of weeks, hoping God would come to rescue him.
Broken and battered, Lucifer taunted Amara during his imprisonment. He went as far as to defend God when Amara spoke poorly of him. Once Lucifer was retrieved by Sam, he was reunited with God and he chose to join God's side to fight Amara. After the combined assault by witches, angels and demons, Lucifer personally stabbed Amara with his spear, intent on doing so twice had God not ordered him to stop.
God intended to re-imprison Amara, but Amara lashed out in a fit of rage and attacked God. Lucifer tried to rescue him, but was flung aside by his aunt, who then yanked him out of his vessel while muttering the words "Goodbye, nephew."
They do not see each other again.
Lucifer has little regard for his younger siblings, though he showed favoritism towards Castiel for the latter's loyalty to his friends and how they shared their rebellious nature towards Heaven. After Lucifer was cast out of Heaven, God taught the angels to believe that Lucifer was "evil incarnate", and he became Heaven's most hated. Many angels hoped to keep Lucifer in prison and protect humanity from his wrath, unaware that Michael would trick them into allowing The Apocalypse to happen.
In his first escape from the Cage, Lucifer is not shown interacting with any other angel besides Castiel, Gabriel and Michael. In his second escape, Lucifer is approached by Nithael, who intends to kill him, despite Lucifer's insistence that he wants to help defeat their aunt Amara. Lucifer is forced to smite Nithael in self-defense. After taking over Hell, Lucifer proceeds to take over Heaven. He kills Jofiel upon arrival and tries to coerce the angels into obeying him, by pointing out that he's their only hope against Amara. He even instructs the angels to call him "God".
Although they agree to serve him, Lucifer is kidnapped by Amara soon after. Lucifer does not return to Heaven until weeks later, when God himself arranges for his son to ask the angels to join them in his counterattack against Amara. The angels are immediately hostile towards Lucifer when he arrives, so Lucifer uses Castiel to speak in his stead.
Once God leaves the Earth, Lucifer goes on a rampage in search of power and pleasure, and ends up conceiving a child. The angels in Heaven sense this and go on high alert. They begin sending out assassins to kill the baby's mother. Their plans are foiled when Prince of Hell Dagon takes Kelly under her care, much to Lucifer's delight.
Sometime after his expulsion from Heaven, Lucifer created four demons from four unidentified human souls, who became known as the Princes of Hell. Lucifer intended for these demons to lead an army in opposition against Heaven, but after Lucifer's defeat and imprisoned in The Cage, only one chose to remain and seek to free his creator: Azazel.
Azazel took charge over Hell for many eons while he tirelessly searched for a way to free Lucifer from his prison. He discovered in 1972 the doorway to Lucifer's Cage at St. Mary's Convent and successfully communicated with Lucifer while there. Lucifer praised Azazel for his efforts before instructing him to free Lilith from the depths of Hell, and find a Special Child for him. This child was to be Lucifer's vessel, who was also pre-destined to be Sam Winchester.
It is unclear if Azazel was told who the child was or what the child's actual purpose was, for during the years following, Azazel selected a number of children based on their parents under the pretense that they would only lead his demonic army. Nevertheless, Azazel came to favor Sam, and forced Sam along with every other selected child to fight to the death, to see who would come out on top. This implies that Azazel truly did not know who the destined child was.
Sam was killed by Jake Talley, forcing Azazel to use Jake in his plan to free Lilith from Hell. Azazel's unexpected death at Dean's hands shortly after ended his involvement in the plan, but Sam was resurrected and through Ruby's manipulation, he would fulfill his destiny and free Lucifer from the Cage by killing Lilith.
Azazel's sacrifice enabled Lucifer to meet and briefly possess Sam, but it was also Sam who defeated Lucifer and re-imprisoned him. Lucifer himself never showed any personal interest in Azazel and according to Crowley, Lucifer saw all demons as expendable. This is made clear when Lucifer offered Sam a chance to murder Azazel's spies sent to watch over Sam since childhood.
Regardless of Lucifer's own feelings, Azazel was deeply loyal to Lucifer, to the point that his own brothers called him a fanatic.
Like Ramiel, Dagon cared little for Lucifer or The Apocalypse and considered Azazel to be a fanatic for still serving the archangel. However, Dagon did at one point serve Lucifer only to fail him.
Dagon was recruited to watch over Kelly Kline and Kelly's unborn child by Lucifer to ensure the baby's survival. Like with Rowena, Lucifer promised Dagon a place beside him as co-ruler, this time as his son's mother. The thought of ruling alongside Lucifer drove Dagon to protect Kelly at all costs. Dagon also came to view the baby himself as a great ruler who could do horrible things with his vast power.
Lucifer kept in touch with Dagon telepathically while he was imprisoned at Crowley's lair. When Dagon lost sight of the baby due to the intervention of angels, Lucifer became immensely frustrated and referred his earlier promise to Dagon as "a fantasy of hers", adding a new promise of infinite torture if she did not find the baby or Kelly.
Terrified, Dagon went after the two using information she tortured out of Kelvin. However, Lucifer's son, who Kelly insisted is good after feeling his soul, took partial possession of Castiel and granted him the power he needed to incinerate Dagon as Lucifer's son had chosen Castiel as his protector and guide.
Lucifer learned of this fact from Crowley, and was visibly displeased with Dagon's death, since he preferred her as his son's protector over Castiel.
Lucifer is the Father and Creator of the demon race, and is regarded highly by all but a few. In retaliation for God's banishment of him from Heaven and God's love for mankind, Lucifer corrupted Lilith, one of the first humans, and turned her into the very first demon. He also condemned Cain's soul to Hell, leading him to become one of the most powerful demons in existence, and the founder of the Knights of Hell. He also created four more demons to act as Generals of Hell, and they became known as the Princes.
Since these were acts merely meant to upset God, Lucifer held no affections for his creations. He used them whenever he needed their assistance, such as help in breaking the 66 seals and causing havoc on Earth during the Apocalypse.
An example of his disregard for the demons was the heartless murder of a handful of demons, sacrificed in the ritual to free Death from his coffin. Lucifer was somewhat perplexed by Sam's horror towards his actions, and simply muttered that they were "just demons".
Despite this, many demons continue to obey and try to serve him, even at the cost of their own lives. Many abandoned their new King Crowley when Lucifer escaped his Cage a second time, and Simmons willingly shielded Lucifer from a blast from a Hand of God at the cost of her own life. One demon in particular was willing to let Lucifer devour him if he wanted, saying his life was for Lucifer's own use. Lucifer was left uncomfortable and disgusted with this comment and showed no compunctions towards obliterating both demons despite them setting him free.
Another demon, Drexel, assists Lucifer in escaping his prison out of loyalty and fear. Lucifer finds this particular demon annoying and a constant test to his patience.
Lucifer is the only non-demon to date to rule over Hell, as he was their creator. Prior to his release from his Cage during the Apocalypse, many demons claimed to have never even seen him, much like how many angels never met nor saw God.
Lucifer was Gabriel's older brother and was said to have taught him various tricks, such as the ability to cast life-like illusions. The two likely had a happy time in Heaven alongside their brethren, however, Lucifer's decision to rebel against God caused a fight that drove Gabriel away.
For eons, Gabriel resided on Earth under the guise of a pagan deity, doing what Dean later referred to as "running from his family". Gabriel would deny these claims, and hide his true face until The Apocalypse came, during which he supported the final battle in hopes that it would end quickly.
Displeased with Gabriel's behavior and avoidance of direct confrontation, Dean berated Gabriel into confronting Lucifer when the latter arrived at Elysian Fields Hotel. Gabriel relented in the end, and provided Sam and Dean with the knowledge on how to re-seal his brother. At long last, Lucifer met Gabriel, and expressed distaste in Gabriel's protectiveness over Kali, the sole pagan deity to survive his massacre at the hotel.
Gabriel admitted to loving his brother, but he could not stand what had become of him, urging him to grow up for once. Lucifer was dismissive of his words, but showed signs of not wanting to fight Gabriel at all. Like Michael, Gabriel ignored him and attempted to attack him from behind, but as Lucifer was his mentor, Lucifer easily saw through his illusions and promptly stabbed Gabriel with his own archangel blade.
Lucifer killed his brother and gazed upon his corpse afterwards. It was during this period that Lucifer expressed for the first time genuine remorse. Ultimately, it was Gabriel's instructions that would result in Lucifer's re-imprisonment, though whether he knew Gabriel had passed on this knowledge is unknown.
Following the second war with Amara, Lucifer felt bitter and abandoned and decided to go on a wild rampage as a means of enjoying himself. His search for powerful individuals to use as vessels eventually landed him with the President of the United States, Jefferson Rooney.
Jefferson's aide, Kelly Kline, was a secret lover and either out of curiosity or to simply keep up with appearances, Lucifer agreed to take her to his bed. It was her suggestion that "Jeff" would make a great father that inspired Lucifer to conceive a child for the first time. The child's conception bought great joy to Lucifer as he was glad to have finally created something as opposed to destroying it.
|“||He said he was thrilled. He said it was the only time he ever created anything.||”|
— Kelly Kline, on Lucifer's response to the pregnancy
Lucifer's happiness was short-lived however, when Sam and Dean convinced Kelly to lure Lucifer into a trap. Kelly informed Lucifer that she was planning to abort the child, which angered Lucifer to the point of choking her. Combined with Rowena's help, Sam and Dean ceased that moment to banish Lucifer from his vessel and down into an air vent, presumably towards the Cage.
Due to Crowley's intervention, Lucifer ended up back in Nick's newly-improved vessel. From his new prison, Lucifer was able to sense where his child was and referred to the baby as a "chip off the old block". He was pleased when Dagon decided to protect the baby, and Lucifer spoke with Dagon telepathically to make sure she didn't allow any harm to come to his son.
Much to Lucifer's dismay, his son fell into the hands of Castiel following Dagon's unexpected demise. After he escaped imprisonment, Lucifer made it a task to find his son. Unfortunately for Lucifer, Sam, Dean and Castiel successfully trapped him in an alternate universe while his son was being delivered. Even more devastating, the portal that led to this world was created by his son during delivery.
After being born, his son Jack declared that his real father was Castiel because Kelly had told him that. He was enraged when he learned that Castiel was dead by Lucifer's hands.
In Lucifer's eyes, Jack was a new purpose for him. Lucifer displayed protectiveness to the degree that he lashed out at Dagon when the angels managed to take Kelly from under her nose. As a result of Jack's birth, Lucifer became the first archangel to father a child.
Lucifer and Kelly KlineEdit
Lucifer met Kelly while posing as President Rooney. She was the President's aide as well as his secret lover. To keep up appearances and for the fun of it, Lucifer had sex for the very first time and with this woman.
It was Kelly who convinced Lucifer to become a father, though she gave this encouragement thinking she was talking to Jeff. Lucifer agreed with Kelly became delighted when Kelly fell pregnant. Lucifer viewed Kelly as a little more than a container and did not care for her personal well being. When she told Lucifer that she wanted an abortion, he snapped at her and tried to strangle her for daring to have such thoughts.
Lucifer was forcibly separated from Kelly by Sam and Dean, and was subsequently kept as a prisoner by Crowley. Despite warnings from others, Kelly opt to keep the baby out of affection and a sense of obligation. She did not like that the father was in fact Lucifer and not Jeff, but this little detail did not bother her much. Because of her pregnancy, Kelly spent the first few months keeping a low profile until Dagon named herself Kelly's protector, much to Lucifer's delight.
Lucifer kept an eye on the pair and was deeply angered when Kelly was taken away by Castiel. Kelly preferred Castiel as her child's protector and even told her unborn son that Castiel would always protect him. This led her son Jack to assume Castiel was his real father and not Lucifer. Kelly never saw Lucifer again from the day their child was conceived up until her death, though they were both at her cabin until Lucifer was banished into another universe.
Lucifer's relationship with Kelly makes him the second known archangel to participate in sexual intercourse, the first being Gabriel. Ironically, Lucifer once reprimanded Gabriel for having feelings for Kali, a pagan deity Lucifer had attempted to kill.
Lucifer and Mary WinchesterEdit
Lucifer meets a resurrected Mary Winchester in 2017. He is aware that she had been dead up until recently, though it is never said how. The two meet outside Kelly's cabin, where Mary intends to not only protect her sons from Lucifer, but also attack Lucifer as she had always wanted.
While Lucifer may have been aware of Mary for a long time, Mary only discovered the Devil was real earlier that day. She even agreed to join her sons on the mission just to punch Lucifer, which she successfully does using Enochian brass knuckles. Lucifer is impressed by her strength, and Mary proceeds to beat on Lucifer until he tumbles into a portal that leads to an alternate dimension, but manages to pull her with him. The portal closes on them almost instantly, and Lucifer roars in anger at being trapped once more.
Lucifer is last seen with his eyes glowing red, glaring at Mary, who stares back with apprehension.
Michael is Lucifer's older brother and the only angel more powerful than him. Michael once said he raised Lucifer in a way "nobody can understand". The two formed an exceptionally strong bond, and with their other siblings the two lived happily in Heaven.
However, their relationship turned sour when Lucifer sought to defy God's wishes to bow down to mankind. Michael chose to side with God, and began calling Lucifer a monster. This act of betrayal would upset Lucifer for many years to come. The two fought during the First Heavenly War, in which Michael won and on God's orders, he cast Lucifer into the Cage.
Michael later sought to initiate the Apocalypse so that, as pre-destined, he would kill Lucifer and bring about paradise on Earth. The two finally met at Stull Cemetery, with Lucifer possessing Sam and Michael possessing Adam. The two expressed a slight joy at finally meeting, but when Lucifer pleaded for Michael to "walk off the chessboard" and not fight at all, Michael - although hesitant - chose to carry out God's will once again.
Unable to talk Michael into backing down, Lucifer accepted that they had to fight and see who would win. Said battle never came to fruition since Dean Winchester interrupted them just in time. Castiel also intervened by banishing Michael using holy fire, angering Lucifer to the point that he mercilessly killed the angel.
Sam was able to regain control of his body long enough to open the doorway to the Cage, with the intent of throwing himself and Lucifer into it. Michael returned just in time and tried to prevent Sam's descent, but was pulled into the Cage by Sam and the four fell into Hell together.
It is unclear what transpired between Michael and Lucifer in the Cage. During the five Earth-years Lucifer was there, Michael had been (according to Lucifer) driven insane. When an opportunity to escape presented itself, Lucifer abandoned his brother and later stated that being Crowley's dog was much more preferable than being with an insane Michael.
Lucifer and Michael's relationship originally mirrored that of Sam and Dean, with the main difference being that Michael chose God while Dean chose Sam. Michael even went as far as to craft a weapon specifically for harming Lucifer, showing just how much Michael came to despise his younger brother, though when did he actually make this lance is uncertain, and his discussion with Dean in 1978 implies that he still held affections for his brother, but he saw God's will as more important; a conviction which would end in his imprisonment.
Lucifer and AU!MichaelEdit
Upon being freed from the Cage for the first time Lucifer needed a vessel, and chose the lonely Nick for reasons unclear. Nick had recently lost his wife and child to a burglar, and was still in mourning. Lucifer used this knowledge to torment Nick with visions and sounds of his deceased loved ones.
Eventually, Lucifer appeared to Nick in a dream in the guise of Nick's wife, Sarah. Nick did not believe who he was at first, though he was soon convinced as Lucifer explained his intentions of punishing God for his crimes, adding the deaths of Nick's family as one of them.
Nick wanted his family brought back, but Lucifer claimed he could not fulfill this wish, but could give him the next best thing, revenge. Recalling the loss he had suffered, Nick assented to possession, and Lucifer walked the Earth at long last.
During The Apocalypse, Lucifer gradually burnt away at Nick's body, due to the latter's incapability to house an archangel. To sustain it, Lucifer was forced to consume gallons of demon blood, according to Castiel. When Sam finally said "yes", Lucifer abandoned Nick in Detroit and left him seemingly dead.
Supposedly, Lucifer preferred Nick's image, as he would manifest in Hell and inside the Cage in the guise of Nick. Sam's hallucination of Lucifer also took on the guise of Nick's form, minus the burn marks, possibly because Sam was familiar with this form.
Nick became the first of four recurring vessels Lucifer would take since his debut.
In Family Feud, Nick's body becomes Lucifer's vessel once more after it is found, repaired and improved upon by Crowley and his demons so Nick can be Lucifer's permanent vessel. Lucifer's reaction to this is an amused "thanks."
For reasons unknown, Lucifer keeps Nick's wedding ring on. It is the only personal object belonging to a vessel Lucifer is shown with. He does not however, manifest himself with the ring, only while occupying Nick's body. Even his hallucination wore it.
Lucifer and Rowena MacLeodEdit
After The Darkness was released from her prison, Lucifer was able to send visions to the world outside the Cage. He sent visions to Sam Winchester, in an effort to lure him to Hell and get him to say "yes" again, while at the same time, he visited Rowena in her dreams, dressed as Santa Claus as fitting for her Christmas-themed nightmare.
Relying on Rowena's adoration and desire to please powerful individuals, Lucifer seduced Rowena with a promise of queenship should she help him escape his Cage. Completely smitten, Rowena agreed to help and allowed Crowley's demons to capture her, knowing she would be brought to him as needed.
In front of Crowley, Rowena acted irritated and even more so at the sight of Sam and Dean, though she revealed her fascination in Lucifer once the trio admitted they wanted her help in contacting the Devil, a desire brought on by Sam's own visions.
Rowena used a spell from the Book of the Damned to summon Lucifer from his Cage to another one in Limbo, which was decorated in sigils and surrounded by holy fire, meant to contain the archangel and weaken him. However, Rowena secretly used sigils that could not contain Lucifer fully, allowing the archangel to take them down at will, much to Sam's eventual horror.
In an effort to banish Lucifer, Crowley used a witchcatcher to force Rowena to cast the spell that would send Lucifer back to his Cage. Although Rowena completed the spell as commanded, Lucifer was not affected as he had obtained a vessel in time, that being Castiel. Rowena was delighted, and approached her "King" as he removed the witchcatcher from her neck, and declared she was deserving of a reward.
Lucifer pretended to kiss Rowena, only to pull back and ask if she was the only one who could open the Cage. Rowena confirmed this, and was promptly killed by Lucifer, her neck snapped. Fortunately, Rowena survived this through magic pre-designed to resurrect her should she die.
Disgusted by his betrayal, Rowena turned to The Darkness for an alliance, but would soon change her mind and flee to join the Winchesters. She was tasked by them to cast a warding spell to contain Lucifer, this time she did not hesitate to try her best, though when Lucifer arrived at the scene, Rowena kept herself hidden from sight. Her spell failed due to time running out, and her efforts were futile.
Lucifer was unaware of her revival and did not even suspect it, until The Darkness also arrived, claiming to be in search of Rowena. Lucifer's only response was to look over his shoulder with a smile. Rowena, terrified of the two, ended up fleeing the scene.
Lucifer and Rowena were later recruited as part of God's team to combat The Darkness. The main members gathered at a warehouse, where Lucifer complimented an unsatisfied Rowena. Their joint efforts proved fruitless in the end, and Lucifer was banished from his vessel, his immediate whereabouts unknown.
When the two met again, Lucifer admitted that all he wanted to do was snap Rownea's neck again, but being aware of how gifted she was as a witch, and her ability to read the Book of the Damned, Lucifer decided to keep her as a prisoner, as enemies should be kept closer than friends. Rowena was left mortified by this turn of events.
The first task Lucifer gave her was to strengthen his vessel so he could keep on using it. Although Rowena appeared to agree, she instead betrayed him by degrading his vessel further and sending both Lucifer and his vessel to the bottom of the ocean.
Unhappy over her part in setting Lucifer free from his prison, Rowena was willing to grant Castiel and the Winchesters her assistance in imprisoning Lucifer all over again, despite not wanting to have anything to do with the archangel anymore.
Rowena would fulfill this promise a short while later when the Winchesters, Castiel and Crowley took her to the president's location, the latter acting as Lucifer's latest vessel. After Sam expelled Lucifer from the president, Rowena cast a spell that drove Lucifer down an air vent and seemingly into The Cage.
Unbeknownst to everyone, Crowley had perverted the spell and sent Lucifer to another prison, located inside his palace. Rowena would spend five months unaware of this fact. When Lucifer finally managed to escape captivity from Crowley, he went off in search of Rowena and brutally murdered her for the same reason he killed her the first time - so no one could send him back to The Cage. He incinerated her corpse to ensure her magic could not revive her.
Lucifer and Vince VincenteEdit
After testing out multiple vessels, Lucifer approaches rock star Vince Vincente upon discovering he is a powerful vessel. Taking on the guise of Vince's deceased lover Jen, Lucifer manages to convince Vince to "let him in". As part of a promise he made, Lucifer heals Vince's sister Wendy of her paralysis, showing for the first time a sense of obligation to his vessel, which he did not have for Nick or Castiel, but he did for Sam somewhat.
However, Wendy describes Lucifer healing her as seeming like simply a chore for him, meaning he did not find the task enjoyable. Meanwhile, Lucifer comes to like Vince as his vessel, and thinks wearing Vince "looks good on him".
However, like many other vessels prior, Vince begins deteriorating, so Lucifer orders Rowena to strengthen the vessel so Lucifer can keep on using Vince. Unfortunately, Rowena betrays Lucifer by speeding up the deterioration process, then blasting both Lucifer and Vince to the bottom of the ocean.
Upon returning, Lucifer uses a fossilized feather from his wings to restore Vince. Afterwards, Lucifer takes advantage of Vince's fame and convinces various women to harm themselves for him. He even kills all of Vince's bandmates and arranges for a show during which he intended to kill all the fans, only for Sam and Dean to intervene. Vince rapidly deteriorates at this point, forcing Lucifer to flee and leave Vince dead on the floor.
Overall, Vince lasted for about a month as a vessel, less than Lucifer's other recurring vessels.
- A majority of Lucifer's relationships don't center around genuine affection or proper companionship, as those who once cared for Lucifer (God, Michael) no longer do, those who worship Lucifer (the demons, Rowena) are not loved back, and others (Sam, Dean, Castiel) simply despise him.
- Mark Pellegrino commented that Lucifer might be able to form friendships but not romantic relationships.
