It should not because the Satan in the story is absolutely not the one from Bible and has a completely different backstory. The only real connection is that he was an angel who rebelled. And not even against God.

Triton erased this:

  • Decomposite Character: Satan and Lucifer are two separate characters in this series. Actually older than you'd think, though: demonologists have considered Lucifer and Satan to be separate beings for centuries; the idea of them being one and the same is a layman's belief.

Their reason was:

"Lucifer and Satan are the same being, them being that way was never just a layman's thing"

AAIK, that's incorrect. Lucifer is the name given to the archangel that was kicked out of heaven. "Satan" was originally a generic term for ANY enemies of God.

Technically, he didn't delete it outright, he changed it to:

  • Decomposite Character: Satan and Lucifer are two separate characters in this series despite the fact that originally, they are one in the same.

To be perfectly frank, I'm not sure what is actually the case. I think a compromise between the two makes sense since a cursory google search is turning up conflicting reports.

According to The Other Wiki, Satan was a title/name forced onto any person or entity identified as an adversary or enemy of God. There's also a specific movement of Christianity that believes Satan and Lucifer were always meant to be the same person.

I suppose that a "compromise" which states that there is debate on the subject would be accurate, but in general, I dislike the practice of compromising on an issue simply because information is difficult to find. In my experience, that only makes it harder to correct mistakes later.
