satan / lucifer – is (she) really in the bible?

I like the idea Satan is female (Lucy Fur!) and God had a bad breakup with her.

Lucifer means light bearer in latin, and it refers to the morning star.

The christian sites interpet it quite differently. Compare the niv to the kjv version. The new kjv inserts the word Lucifer but the niv does not and translates it as Morning Star. This article counters both http://hermeneutics.stackexchange.com/questions/8066/why-is-isaiah-1412-15-interpreted-by-some-to-refer-to-satan

random snippets:

lilith:

Lilith: predated Eve as the first woman. ‘A “hot” blooded female who first slept with humans and crossed the “forbidden” line of Divine intervention. She refused to bed with Adam and as a fallen angel turned to the power of Satan. She is depicted as a beautiful naked woman with the tail of a serpent. She despises children, but as part of her punishment for defiance, she was forced to bear Satan 100 children a day.’ Some interept her to have been the snake in the garden of Eden. (Perhaps she was jealous of Eve lol!)

Copy paste from another site:

“Satan is rather misunderstood in part because of the varying views of Satan, Lucifer and the Christian Devil. Satan is the Hebrew translation of the Egyptian God Set, making Satan a God. But there is academic disagreement about this connection between the Hebrew Satan and the Egyptian Set. Many people turn to the LeVey Satanists and take their cue from their definition of Satan as a God. At the same time, Satan is also confused with Lucifer, the Light Bringer. And then there’s the Christian view that Satan is the adversary of God and the accuser of Mankind.

It is unclear when Lucifer, Satan and The Devil folded into the single character of the Devil, ruler of the Underworld. Depending on your perspective, Satan is a God and Archangel, Lucifer is an Archangel, and the Devil is a combination of many pagan variations of the God force in the form of the Celtic Green Man the lord of vegetation and the woodlands, the Celtic Horned God or Cernunnos, Pan the Greek god of the woodlands, Janus the Roman god of good beings, Osiris, the Egyptian Lord of the underworld and many other versions of a pagan God with horns, or a half body of human, goat or stag.

The Devil in Christian lore, was once the ruler or head of Seraphim. He rebelled against God and was tossed out of heaven, becoming the ruler of Hades or Hell. As the enemy of goodness, the Devil rules over the evil spirits to cause havoc and chaos for the human race. Floods, storms, diseases and death are said to be created by these forces. Temptations of sinful ways and other evil desires are also associated with the influences of these forces. The Devil has many names, some of which are misconceptions, but include:
Beelzebub
Deliar,
Duma
Mastema

Gadreel
Sammael
Satan”

Anyway “the devil” is a Christian amalgoration of multiple entities from multiple pagan sources.

Thats probably why him, And God have so many names.

On the other hand the Arabs have many name for Allah. The Arabs were influenced by many of the works Christians consider apocryphal, including the infancy gospel of thomas where Jesus as a baby kicks a guy off a building killing him and then resurrects him, mocking bis teacher and teaching him in the process.
