I am Satan, the one who stands below God the Judge. I see you have chosen to retaliate, just as that man did. Then prepare, Seraph, to receive God's eternal punishment of damnation!

Satan Apocalypse
I am Satan, the ancient angel... The arbiter. Chaos, Order Neutrality... It matters not what state the universe is in. The universe is constantly in flux. Old gives way to new; it is the irrefutable law of nature. Ascertaining God's identity and breaking free of his rule is in accordance with the law. I can guide you to YHVH's throne, if you so wish. Challenge the Creator and see if you are worthy as the next will of the universe. But first... You must prove yourself to me. You hail from a world shackled by slavery. But in this one blow the winds of freedom. If the soul is at peace, even in the depths of Hell shall one find comfort. As proof, you--slaves of God--did not recognize that you were being shackled... Yet you now wish to dethrone the Creator. Then show me the strength of your determination... Your will. Hold nothing back. Failing this test would mean eternal death."

Summary

Satan, The Ancient Angel, is the most powerful of YHVH's servants, acting as God's Judge and Executioner. Sharing his Creator's ruthless attitude and black and white outlook on morality, and desiring nothing more than to enforce Law onto humans, he stands firmly against Lucifer, being the Fallen Archangel's sworn adversary. Due to his role, he often acts as one of the player's last challenges in the Shin Megami Tensei games he appears.

Although playing the same established role as God's Judge and Arbiter, Satan's origins and personality shifted considerably in Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse. In spite of his previous incarnations being portrayed as a separate being from Lucifer, Apocalypse depicts Satan as being the true leader of the Monotheism faction, having split his essence into Lucifer and Merkabah under YHVH's commands in order to perpetuate human suffering through the endless war between Law and Chaos – In contrast to his previous appearances, who possess a Black and White view on morality and desire to inforce Law upon humans like his Creator, Satan is portrayed as a neutral and reasonable figure in Apocalypse, being completely willing to help the cast in their goal of dethroning God, even when knowing the death of his Creator will mean his own
