Lucifer is a poetic name for the "morning star"!
At the time were Lucifer still was an angel of the Lord, with the mission to rule, test and punish, he saw a beautiful woman on earth. The booth myths don't match at this point, as they gladly do, because by the original he got preapitated into the abyss before the woman was created. Or maybe she was a Djinn or else he continued as an angel a while after that the humans had come there. Lucifer had fallen deeply on love with this woman. But an angel couldn't be with the people on the earth. Therefore he could only look at her in silence, without her knowing anything about it. Shortly after that he got his punish of the Lord and he could never see her again. Down from the abyss, he couldn't look up to the earth. But one of archangels had noticed Lucifer's tendency for this woman, while hi still were among them. The archangel asked the Lord for mercy over Lucifer, his old friend.
At the beginning the Lord was indeclinable. Nobody should put up against him! But when all the archangels begged over the fallen angel, he yield, well aware that his mercy wouldn't be any help. He decided that Lucifer got the permission to walk around earth once per 100 year period.
Then Lucifer walked around on earth a short period each 100 year. The beloved woman he never saw again, for how could she live that long, more else keep her youth?
But the Lord let him keep his pain and longing, well aware that his wonder around earth would never show any results. Therefore the Lord got his revenge on Lucifer anyhow.
Might do a picture of the lady next!!
