Demon Sunday school story. God prefers humans to angels. Lucifer gets jealous and then he gets creative. And he twists and tempts a human soul into the very first demon as a 'screw you' to God. It's what got him locked up in the first place.

Ruby, 4.21 When the Levee Breaks

The first demon was created by the archangel Lucifer in order to prove the flawed nature of humans, he took a human woman -- Lilith -- and stripped away her humanity to make her the first demon, an act which caused God to banish Lucifer from Heaven. Other demons would follow, such as Alastair and the four Princes of Hell -- Azazel, Ramiel, Dagon and Asmodeus -- who would act as Hell's generals in Lucifer's war against Heaven. For this offense, God commanded Michael to imprison Lucifer in a cage in Hell. In a final act before being imprisoned, Lucifer passed on his Mark to Cain, and hand picked humans for Cain to turn and train into becoming the Knights of Hell.

All demons were once originally humans, who become demonic when tortured in Hell until their humanity is burned away. Prior to becoming demons, it is unclear on what criteria the human spirits are judged as being worthy of Hell, other than selling one's soul to a crossroads demon or being a witch. It is revealed by the god Anubis that a person's choices in life ultimately tip the scales to their final destinations upon death.

Demons have a belief system analogous to humans, according to the demon Casey, but while humans believe in God as their higher power, demons view Lucifer as theirs. No demon had ever actually seen Lucifer according to Casey in 2007, however in 1972, Azazel was able to make contact with Lucifer after performing a ritual where eight nuns were slaughtered at St. Mary's Convent in Ilchester, Maryland. With Lucifer's subsequent release from the Cage, all demons would recognize him as the rightful ruler of Hell.
