Lucifer is the devils name.

The "original rebel", who was also the most beautiful angel in Heaven. After rebelling against God, he resided in Hell for some time (or he created it from some already existing plane).
But soon all the anger and fury towards God that Lucifer felt took a form of its own - by seperating from Lucifer. This was the "birth" of Satan. Satan represents anger, and Lucifer is represents sorrow - or remorse or regret.
Lucifer is considered the original rebel.

A name commonly associated with Satan, the devil of Christian theology. The origin is most likely a mistranslated passage of the Bible, in which a prince named Lucifer is compared to the fallen angel. The terms Lucifer and Satan are now often interchaneable, and many believe that Lucifer was his name before he fell from grace.
"I am Lucifer, the Prince of Darkness! Behold my power and tremble! Boogity-boogity-boo!"

There's an old song of British ancestry circa WWI titled "Pack Up Your Troubles". One line in that song says, ...While you've a Lucifer to light your fag... Of course we all know that to a Brit a fag is a cigarette, right?

This definition of a Lucifer was alluded to in definition 10, and the use of the term Lucifer to indicate a match might stem from the Greek name for Lucifer, Phosphoros, given in definition 6 because of the use of the chemical Phosphorus in producing matches.
...While you've a Lucifer to light your fag...
