The Devil has come to Los Angeles…
Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint, Lucifer is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A., where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub.
Charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome, Lucifer is enjoying his retirement, indulging in a few of his favorite things--wine, women and song-–when a beautiful pop star is brutally murdered outside of Lux. For the first time in roughly 10 billion years, he feels something awaken deep within him as a result of this murder. Compassion? Sympathy? The very thought disturbs him--as well as his best friend and confidante, Mazkeen aka Maze, a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman.
Lucifer tries to determine who--or what--gave him angel wings, and discovers that his devil face has been stolen. Meanwhile, the precinct gets a new commander and the team finds a corpse at the scene of Lucifer's kidnapping.
Lucifer and Chloe investigate the death of a failed comedian, while Lucifer tries to find out more about the Sinnerman. Meanwhile, Amenadiel tells Linda that God is testing him, and Marcus warns Lucifer that he's encountered the Sinnerman before.

Together, the two of them work to find her, but interesting secrets are revealed along the way that could compromise the investigation. Meanwhile, Chloe is upset that Lucifer left on her birthday, so Linda tries to lift her spirits.
Two people that Lucifer has done favors for turn up murdered, and he and the police soon realize that the Sinnerman is involved. Meanwhile, Maze returns to town and finds Amenadiel and Linda "talking", and figures that they're involved.
