So you knew him... before? That is cool. I know he was the favorite, and also that he himself was being manipulated or so I am told. Anyway, it seems like an awful lot of fallens are switiching sides lately, and I was wondering what is happening to his power base. I would expect him to be upset, but he doesn't seem to be even interested. The mothers expected some resistance to this, and we have gotten none from anything that seems... er... "satanic" or "luciferian." I haven't gotten any sense that he is ticked off by their deserting him at all. Why would he be OK with that?
Was he being manipulated or perhaps he saw what no one else did? In lucifers perception, would his "power base" lie in others, or within?
Could it be that the fallens consider the activities of the Demurge and his new alies to be so much of a threat that they are willing to at least burry the hatchet long enough for us both to get that situation under control? I have no current beef with Lucifer apparently, so I am not wanting to stir any trouble with him... but I am curious as to why he is not doing anything right now.
Couldn't one say, the fact that others think he is not doing anything right now, attest to the progress of what he is doing?
Lucifer declared war on all heaven. Though he was probably misled, and maybe coerced, or tricked into it, it is still a fairly serious thing... then after he wasn't sorry, he was still ticked off, and the way I understand it, he is still ticked off... but as I said, no one has talked to him... in long time. If he is considering reconciliation, it would only be because he hates the demurge more than us, not because he likes us.
Lucifer manipulated by another, it is possible, it also possible that Lucifer saw what no one else could see and took action. To others it could seem selfish and foolish, but to him the scope and the big picture would be entirely different.
What some could have seen as a war on all existence, another could have perceived as saving what the "creator" loved most.
I don't know for sure what he is trying to do, but if we think about his position, we can see the most likely motivation. His worst enemy Demurge, and another moderate enemy of his (us Sophians) are fighting. They have been fighting for eons, but the battle has picked up, and grown very heated, because his moderate enemy has picked up a lot of power, and his worst enemy has been forced to learn some new tricks... which are pretty damned freaky... despite the fact that overall he has lost a lot of power recently. He has also aquired new alies who are raiding his low level entities for captives to use a soldiers against his moderate enemy. The other enemy is currently leaving him alone, but some of his forces are switching sides to help in the war effort... because so far Lucifer's forces are only on the defensive a little, and don't seem to be mounting any kind of major attack on anyone... at least not that I know of. I know they don't seem to be attacking us.
Now why would lucifer play passive, when his head so to speak, is desired by many to be put on a spit. Then again one must consider if Lucifer purposely disbanded his followers for a time, for some thing else to progress.
Now he has three options... attack his worst enemy full force, attack his moderate enemy, or just lay low... fend off attacks with minimal effort, and let us fight it out, which logically should weaken both sides. When it is over, he might just take us on... or he might let it slide since we aren't the ones attacking him... I would go into speculation over what happens if we loose, but I never consider that...
Narrowing it down to three options, really shortens your scope of what could be. Is his goal to fight any "faction" so to speak?
The other possibility is that his forces are weak for some reason, and that is why he isn't agressively persuing some sort of interest in the war. I do know he's had a lot of deserters, mostly because he isn't actively involved, and many of his people want to fight the Demurge. A lot of things that used to be bitter towards us arent' any more. At least they aren't bitter towards Sophia, or the other mothers. They may still harbor other grudges... other than Demurge. I also heard that there have been attempts by Demurge to indirectly or directly recruit from his forces, and among other negs... but I don't think they are having a lot of luck... some though. I wonder if the deserters are enough to weaken him, or if the attacks are.
His forces weak? Or purposely disbanded.
Or maybe he is just becoming more moderate?
Balance is useful.
