She loathed the title. Abhorred it. It was not as gracious as "The Demon" or "The Evil One". Being called "The Devil" was something she could not stand. Davil was an acronym invented by her father, standing for 'Dark Varmint Incapable of Love'. The British then changed the 'a' in Davil to an 'e'.
But why did she and her father have a hellish relationship?
It all started when one day a glorious baby boy fell out of the sky in the middle of God's lair. The pelican carrying this boy however was unlike all others; its beak was golden. This usually evinced royalty. And royalty he was! He was the most beautiful angel in all of heaven- you've all heard the story. But due to the restrictions which would be imposed on certain books in the coming future, we had to erase that bit from the Bible. So whilst you know that dearest Lucifer disobeyed his father and as a result God banished him to Hell, the truth is a tad different.
You see, when Lucifer was around a metre and a half tall- (we do not age in heaven) he decided he wanted to be a she. But God did not want as such. He hated the weaker sex. He had gone to lengthy measures to make sure the male gender is always superior; imposing wage gaps in many many years' time, had made sure that inequalities would always be around. He gave the pain of childbirth and child bearing to the women, and if that was not enough, he made sure all husbands around the world did not surpass a threshold of maturity- otherwise he would make sure such men remained unmarried. Oh no, we could not have a female child from God. Turpitude!
So in essence, when Lucifer presented the request to God, the latter flatly denied. God changed his name from 'The Bulb' (as this is the correct literal translation of the name; but of course if we wanted to be taken seriously we had to amend the truth a bit when writing the Bible), to 'Davil', and sent her to hell.
That's it basically. God still hates females; which is why he distances himself so far away from Hell; which is why all angels (myself included) are all males and which is why wives everywhere have been burdened with the husband-upbringing-process (might I add, a process which, in my opinion, has always been done impeccably).
And that, gentleman and ladies, is the story of the true identity of Lucifer (colloquially known up here as the hormonal bulb). It does feel good to finally get the truth out there!
