Long ago. Eager to please, I freed the '' shedim''.. . Hell' s most savage. Things so dark and base, God himself would not allow them into the light. But I , in my pride, believed that I could train them. Use them. But Lucifer feared them, as well he should. So he forbade it, locked them up again. He was... ' disappointed' in me. The pain, the uh... the total humiliation... it forged an eternal bond between us. I am his to command, as you are mine.
02 The Rising Son]]
is the last remaining of the four [[Princes of Hell]]. At some point during his eons of servitude to [[Lucifer]], Asmodeus attempted to free the ''[[shedim]]'' and use them in service of Lucifer. However, due to the dark and base nature of the ''shedim'', Lucifer feared them and locked them away. For the disappointment Asmodeus caused Lucifer, he permanently scarred his face, and through that pain and humiliation, an eternal bond was forged. Asmodeus became Lucifer's to command. At some point in time, Asmodeus, along with his siblings [[Ramiel]] and [[Dagon]], left the machinations of [[Hell]] behind to live quiet lives on Earth, later revealing to [[Dean Winchester]] that he left because he was unable to get Lucifer's approval .
Asmodeus has yellow irises with white sclerae and no visible pupils. Dressed in white, he sports a well-groomed beard and a southern accent, and he has two scars around his left eye which were given to him by Lucifer, which indicates that he has occupied his current vessel for millennia. According to Ramiel, Asmodeus occupied himself with his "hobbies," which have not been specified. While his ability to smite a room full of demons, desire in ruling the ''shedim'', and ability to overpower a weakened Lucifer and the recently-resurrected Castiel at the same time implies that he might be the most powerful of the four Princes of Hell, Lucifer reveals to Castiel that Asmodeus was his weakest creation, and was unaware where Asmodeus got the ability to shapeshift among other
abilites, claiming not to have given them to him.

Answering Castiel's cell phone, Asmodeus disguises his voice to sound like Cas and tells [[Dean]] that he is looking into a very interesting lead and will contact him when he knows more. After hanging up, Asmodeus informs [[Arthur Ketch]] of his current plans for Lucifer and Castiel and that he will be needing Jack even more now that a new version of [[Michael (Apocalypse World)|Michael]] plans on coming to their world.
===[[13.13 Devil's Bargain]]===
Asmodeus returns to [[Needham Asylum]], after running "an important errand." Angry that his subordinates allowed Lucifer and Castiel to escape confinement, Asmodeus agrees with Ketch that attempting to hold Lucifer was "monumentally stupid" and thus changes tactics and orders Ketch to kill Lucifer. Seeing Ketch visibly apprehensive about the task, Asmodeus assures him that Lucifer is running on empty and that an angel blade to the heart should kill him... probably, but Ketch needs to act quick before Lucifer regains his power or they will all die.
When Ketch reports back regarding his inability to kill Lucifer, Asmodeus reveals to him the important errand that took him away from his duties -- locating and retrieving the [[archangel blade]]. When Ketch questions the practicality of a weapon that can only be wielded by an [[archangel]], Asmodeus decides to introduce Ketch to one of his prisoners, [[Gabriel]].
==Asmodeus in Lore==
[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asmodeus Asmodeus] is known as a king of demons / ''shedim'' and as one of the seven princes of Hell in ''[[Binsfeld's Classification of Demons]]'', where he is considered the demon of lust in accordance with the seven deadly sins. In Jewish and Islamic lore, the ''shedim'' are said to be the followers of Asmodeus, who is their king.
