Azazel

When we first meet Azazel in The Sandman: Preludes And Nocturnes it is one of a triumvirate ruling Hell. The other two members are Lucifer and Beelzebub.

We next encounter Azazel in The Sandman: Season Of Mists after Lucifer has given up control of Hell. At the convocation of those who wish custody of Hell, it aspires to become the new ruler. Azazel attempts to coerce Dream into giving it the key to Hell by threatening to harm Nada if he does otherwise. Dream battles Azazel, and ultimately imprisons it in a bottle. Dream places the bottle in a chest, which also contains a city with spires and minarets in a bottle and a skull with teeth in its eye sockets (perhaps the remains of a previous incarnation of The Corinthian?)
