Satan is the name of the Devil in Judeo-Christian-Islamic religion. He is the fallen rebel archangel Lucifer who was cast out of Heaven and onto Earth as punishment for leading the revolt of the angels and attempting to become equal to or greater than God. He is the main antagonist of the Lords of Shadow series as well as the arch nemesis of Dracula.
Satan has pale, white skin and numerous veins appearing in his face and body. He doesn't use any type of clothing. However, his body is covered by a black aura from his waist to his legs. His hair is black just like the aura, and the globe of his eyes are also black, but the íris is a light-yellow. Such a dark appearance is likely due to the fact that he embraced his pride and hate, corrupting himself and falling from "grace".
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Different from the other bosses, Satan uses more magic than the others. It's said that Satan has unimaginable power to wield on Earth. However, he is not able to command his full strength while chained to the earthly plane, and thus remains weakened against Heaven's chosen. With the use of both light and shadow magic, he is one of the most treacherous enemies.Satan is an immortal angel with superhuman strength and endurance that allowed him to challenge Gabriel. He has the power to fly with his shadowy wings. He set Zobek ablaze with pyrokinesis.
The use of both magic types is very high, to the point he can cast destructive spells or even summon demonic Reapers from other planes that can only be destroyed by the opposite magic and also create with his hands, magical seals that has the capacity to capture (and protect Satan when he's very weakened) can only be destroyed (or passed when a "barrier") by the same magic that these have come.
Satan can also sense magic, other beings and conjure a rain of fire with his hands. Apparently, he can control the appearance of the scenario, due to the fact when he "gets serious", the scenario changes to an obscure area with green lightning.
Satan uses the God's Mask to gain more power and also use the staff to concentrate his magical energy due to his weakness.
When Satan tries to avoid or advance against his enemies, a pair of shadow wings appear on his back. He can levitate, though his wings grant him superior maneuverability and speed. He has also demonstrated sufficient skill in close-quarters combat.
Satan uses his black staff as a symbol of authority and as a weapon, perhaps as an aid to his weakened powers in the material plane. It glows with white energy when not used to channel magic, blue when channeling Light magic, and red when channeling Shadow magic.
It appears to amplify his magical prowess, or at least aid in its usage, for Satan was witnessed to be able to unleash a wave of force that created fissures in the earth by striking it with the base of his staff, and manifesting a wave of fire by striking the earth with the top of his staff. It is highly resistant to damage, but is by no means unbreakable.
Satan is very prideful, arrogant, and a manipulator. He was the real mastermind behind all the events of Lords of Shadow and has manipulated Zobek and the other Lords of Shadow to acquire the God's Mask for his own means. He will try to manipulate every being to reach his purpose and refers to his rebellion as if he was just doing the right thing and says that he was abandoned by his Father.
With a very persistent attitude, Satan tries to continue his fight against the Almighty and declares that he will use the mask to reach his objective. Satan's arrogance and sense of intitlement is so great that he feels it is his divine right to rule by God's side as either His equal or even superior. Satan also acts as a "king" and tries to show he's far greater and more compassionate than God, principally when he says to a distraught Gabriel: "So... He has abandoned you, too? So be it. Join me. I will love you more than He." Despite all of this, he shows anger against God because of his fall.
Background in Lords of ShadowEdit
Satan is the main antagonist of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
When Zobek searched Hell for a way to assemble the God Mask, Satan endowed him with a vast amount of knowledge and power, and implanted the idea to use an elaborate charade to obtain his goals. Presumably, this is how Zobek obtained the Devil Mask. As such, he is mainly responsible for all Zobek's following actions, especially his manipulation of Gabriel Belmont. When Zobek reveals his true intentions, Satan in turn reveals himself and his part in events. He incinerates Zobek and takes form, and explains to Gabriel his intention of ascending to Heaven to challenge God and take His place. He offers Gabriel a chance to join him, but he refuses. Satan and Gabriel then engage in combat.
Despite his power and badly injuring Gabriel near the end of the fight, he is defeated, and Gabriel maintains a choke hold over Satan. Satan still tries to convince Gabriel that God has betrayed him, and when he ignores him, he begins to taunt Gabriel, saying that he will "introduce Marie to such pleasures" in Hell. Gabriel tells Satan that her soul will go only to God, and Satan begins to laugh. After this, Gabriel shines with an intense light, finally vanquishing Satan, and undoes the spell keeping the lost souls on Earth is broken.
Lords of Shadow 2Edit
By modern times, the acolytes of Satan prepare for his imminent return. This spurs Zobek to search for Gabriel (now known as Dracula) so that they may prevent Satan from returning and taking revenge on both of them. Dracula's response to Zobek is currently unknown.
Bow down to me, it's Satan who commands you!
Didn't Pan teach you anything?
Surely you can do better than that, Gabriel!
God doesn't love you, he let your beloved die!
Surrender your weapon, and I'll show you mercy!
Father! I come for you... Before the end YOU will bow down to ME!
Hate can bring us back, give us strength. Embrace it!
Impossible! Is...that...the power of God?!

| Chapter The Final Fight|
Within the main series, Satan is rarely mentioned, as his role as the symbol and embodiment of evil is taken by the Dark Lord, Dracula. Therefore, it can be said that the "Satan" of the main series is' the Dark Lord. Certain enemies, bearing the name of the Devil, do make an appearance in various games, but the fact that they are common enemies in all of their appearances suggests that they are low-ranking demons rather than beings of high power or authority.
One of the most direct references is the Satan's Ring in the Sorrow series. In the first the description says it was once worn by Satan, and in the second game it says it was once worn by the Dark Lord. There is the Lucifer's Sword in Lament of Innocence.
In Castlevania 64, if the player uses the scroll too often, Renon appears near the end of the game, and admits that the hero has agreed to a contract with Satan (In the Japanese version, it's written "悪魔 (Akuma, Demon)". Not Satan). Those who borrow over 30,000 pieces of gold, their soul is forfeit. Because the hero has taken far more than that, he comes to enforce the contract, and take the hero's soul. This leads to a boss fight.
