The fallen Prince of Darkness still rules over Hell and tortures each and every subject doomed to his flaming domain for eternity - and even makes the occasional attempt to take over Heaven or swindle good people out of their money. Don't let that bad reputation and rugged physique fool you though - Satan's really just a big old softie. Though he usually acts tough and dominating while at work and trying to deal with each of his subjects, he is actually quite sensitive and lonely, and has a strong desire for romance and companionship. That doesn't change the fact he remains attracted to those who seem even more evil than he is, of course.
He has been in a number of long-term relationships over the last thousand years, from an abusive sexual relationship with former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein after he was secretly taken out by a pack of American-trained wild boars, to a compassionate relationship with a man named Chris that was strained by a lack of intimacy. After a chat with God, Satan decided to figure himself out before entering another relationship, and besides flings with a demon named Kevin and possibly a porcupine, has been on his own since. He also has an estranged son named Damien Thorn, whom he rarely sees.
While he was at first unwelcome sight in the town of South Park, swindling it's citizens in his boxing match with Jesus, but after saving the world from Saddam (with some help from one Kenny McCormick) he has been allowed free reign between Earth and Hell as he pleases. He throws massive parties at Halloween and Christmas time - and he has also been more lenient in granting clemency to his own subjects as well.

Satan briefly appears after the boys defeat the Anti-Christ in Hell, but refuses to come down and scare them, instead banishing them back to Earth so they can resume their pursuit of Scott Tenorman.
