Asmodeus is a Greater Demon and is considered to be the most powerful Prince of Hell.

History

Magnus

At one point, Asmodeus slept with an Indonesian woman, with whom he had a warlock son, Magnus Bane. After the woman's death, Magnus became orphaned and wandered the streets. Asmodeus found him and took him in, teaching him how to properly handle his magic.

After some time, Magnus saw what kind of being Asmodeus truly was and banished him back to Hell, where Asmodeus ruled Edom.[1]

Centuries after,[2] Magnus sent himself to Edom to ask for Asmodeus's help in conjuring up enough power to free a Shadowhunter trapped by Lilith. Asmodeus wasn't inclined to want Lilith back in the realm with him, but when Magnus offered something in exchange, Asmodeus was quick to tell him to stay and rule beside him. Magnus refused and asked him if there was anything else he may have interest in. Asmodeus agreed to give him the power he required in exchange for his own magic, rendering Magnus powerless after saving Jace.[1]

Abilities

  • Demonic magic: Asmodeus's magic is unique and very powerful. He is one of the few demons capable of corrupting the ley lines. When he uses his magic, he leaves behind an energy signature that is recognizable by some demons and is slightly similar to that of Lilith's, both being from Edom.[2]
