Hummmmm...wasn't that shortly after the Creation of the Universe
and isn't he suppose to be like, kind of immortal ;p

I just couldn't resist.
Things have gotten a wee bit Biblical here on Wire;)
Lets see, Mephistopheles, also known as Lucifer, Satan,
Azazel, Bearer of Light, Son of the Morning, Dragon of
Dawn, Bono, yadda, yadda, yadda....
According to one interpertation of the Fall, Lucicifer was
driven mad by jealousy when God the Father proclaimed Lucifer's
twin brother, Jesus, The Son.
Most authorities agree that he was once the mightiest of the
Seraphim, Viceroy or Regent of God. In this origional form he
is depicted as having twelve wings. Gregory of Nazianus says
of him that before his fall he had worn th rest of the Angels
"as a garment, transcending all in glory and knowledge."
(aka "suit of lights")
Even St. Jerome tells us that this mighty angel will one
day be reinstated in that primal splendor and in his prior
He has many characteristics of ancient deities.
He has the horns, the hairy legs ;p, the hoofs and the
formidable, uh...cough...ah, endowment of the ancient and
lusty woodland diety, Pan. He has the fearsome lightening
trident of the God of the Underworld which will be a stage
prop duing the next tour, he has the serpent form of the
Leviathan in which he's well know for sweet talking the ladies,
and the six wings of the awesome Babylonian Guardian spirits
all of which have the Popmart logo on them right now. He can
sing really well, too :p
