My first pop culture demon! Not only is Crowley (or Crawly, as he was called in Eden) my favorite character, but he’s also pretty spot on in terms of my, and other Satanists’, view of Satan. Crowley is the one who talked (or tempted, as he calls the ability) Eve into eating the apple. He’s not evil, exactly; he Fell for the harmless crime of asking questions. Since the Fall, he’s had a slight problem with authority, and generally encourages humans to think for themselves, when he’s not tempting them or causing mischief by making things slightly inconvenient.
