Dawncatcher is a major artifact Lucifer created before the Dawn of Gods and he has never been seen without it after that. In combat it functions as a +9 keen axiomatic long spear of speed and unholy power but its capabilities are not limited to this. Lucifer can use it to attack all creatures within his reach, even those in adjacent squares and it grants him Cleave and Great cleave as bonus feats and he gains Pounce whenever using Dawncatcher. The power attack ratio of this two-handed weapon is automatically 1:4 before any additional modifiers. It also functions as a rod of epic rulership, although there is no limit how long it can be used, the will save is 38 and given only to those with an intelligence score of 24 and anyone struck by a critical hit from it have to make a DC 79 fortitude save or be destroyed instantly and then a will save DC 79 or the soul of whoever Lucifer killed is sucked to the spear. The latter save must be done buy every creature Lucifer kills with the spear, not only by those who are killed by a critical hit.
Nine times a day Lucifer can release a soul in conjunction with an attack and that attack then causes additional damage equal to twice the HD of the creature whose soul it is. When used in such a way the soul is lost forever. Wielding the spear also gives Lucifer nine extra turn attempts. Every succesful hit from the Dawncatcher casts both Dictum and Blasphemy on the target (CL 45). To boost the melee prowess of Lucifer's even further, Dawncatcher adapts to all damage reductions after hitting the target once.
There seems to be no limit to the number of souls Lucifer can store to in this fashion and he has collected them for millions of years. Apart from boosting his melee damage, Lucifer can use them for several other forms of attacks as well. He can generate a 360ft line, 270ft cone or a 180ft burst of energy (he can choose any of the 5 energy types) damage equal to 2xHDd6. Half the damage dealt in this is vile damage that cannot be healed in any way, even on concecrated ground, without a Miracle/Wish cast by a Cleric of at least 41st level or on an opposed rank check. After the first Miracle/Wish each consecutive casting of the spell in question heals a single point of damage per caster level. A succesful reflex save (DC 69) halves the damage in all cases.
All the energy attacks also have secondary effects as described below:
-Acid: Should the character fail the initial save he has to make a reflex save with the same DC or a single item of Lucifer's choice is subject to the acid damage as well. This damage ignores hardness and energy resistance and the item in question does not get a saving throw against the effect.
-Cold: Even if the character succeeds in his first save, he must make a will save of DC 69 or be utterly number by the cold. Should the last save fail the character is feebleminded for 9 rounds.
-Electricity: Should the character fail the initial save he has to make a fortitude save DC 69 or be dazed for nine rounds.
-Fire: Should the character fail the initial save he has to make a fortitude save DC of 69 or be permanently blinded by the bright explosion. This effect can only be removed with Wish/Miracle cast by a level 41 Cleric or an opposed rank check. Another reflex save of DC 69 must also be made or else the character takes 50% of the initial damage as vile damage the following round.
-Sonic: Should the character fail the initial save he is automatically stunned for a single round. He also needs to make a fortitude save DC 69 or be permanently deafened. This effect can only be removed with Wish/Miracle cast by a level 41 Cleric or an opposed rank check.
The immense magical energies of the spear empower Lucifer's spells to a significant extent. All the saving throw DC's of his spell-like abilities and spells receive +18 profane bonus and he gains +18 profane bonus to his caster level. He needs not to wield the spear to get this effect, but he needs to have it with 99 feet from him.
Finally, 9 times a day Lucifer can use Dawncatcher to make himself invulnerable to most attacks. This functions as the psionic power Timeless body apart from the fact that this can be activated as a free action and the effect lasts for three rounds instead of one. When using this ability Lucifer ceases to glow and his eyes turn black as night. On top of these magical defenses Lucifer receive the following feats whenever within 99 feet from his weapon: Divine spell power, Spell opportunity and Spell stowaway (Time stop). Some scholars suggest that this last ability was actually added to the item by the Iron Duke, Dispater.
While the true Overlord of Hell was still recovering from the injuries he got from the ferocious fight with the two other parts of the Trinity the first malefircareim started emerging from the evil energies that now constitute the essence of the Nine Hells of Perdition. These first major evils, true devils, started to form their own empires on different layers of Hell and the most succesful of them had been Leviathan who had almost slaved an entire layer now known as Stygia.
This lasted for thousands upon thousands of years, but then something happened. A ball of hellfire, brimstone, malevolence and, most importantly, power flew through the entire Ninefold realm and eventually took control over Nessus and offered the former leaders of Hell a chance to surrender or die. All the Lords to-be submitted and acquired their positions as Lords of the Nine.
The newly arrived King of Hell was truly an aspect of the Overlord and he was known as Lucifer the Satan. He was a passionate man of great evil and tyranny who ruled with an ironfist for countless of millennia starting the Blood War, witnessing the Dawn of Gods and many more events of huge importance. However, no reign lasts forever and even the might of the Lightbringer could be overcome with the help of the Overlord. The challenger, Asmodeus, appeared and with the help of the Overlord he defeated Lucifer and drove him away frin Hell and crowned himself the King of Hell.
Lucifer fled to the Grey Wastes of Despair where he has been for longer than anyone could remember even if they knew his whereabouts. All this time Lucifer has planned a new coup and modified himself with magic and through death and rebirth he has reached the form he has now. The form that will be the end for the traitor Asmodeus...
The Lightbringer appears as a nine and a half foot tall man of unbelievable beauty and grace. His eyes glow with bright red light while his entire body glimmers in red and gold, the colours of dawn. He wears no clothes and seems to be completely androgynous even though his features are definitely that of a man. A pair of angel-like golden wings sprout from his back and they have been scribed full of magical runes. His hair is short and of golden colour.
He always carries Dawncatcher, which is a magical long spear Lucifer has had eversince he first arrived to Hell.
