I now call "dibs" on Lucifer (fictional).

Maeve: I must get in touch with this Dr. Campbell, I found Cuchulain's body tied to a stone with the crows of the Morrígna swirling around it.

Eochaid deposed the then-king of Connacht, Tinni mac Conri, and installed Medb in his place. However, Tinni regained a share of the throne when he and Medb later became lovers. Conchobar raped Medb after an assembly at Tara, and war ensued between the High King and Ulster. Tinni challenged Conchobar to single combat, and lost. Eochaid Dála of the Fir Domnann, who had been Tinni's rival for the kingship, protected the Connacht army as it retreated, and became Medb's next husband and king of Connacht. Medb demanded her husband satisfy her three criteria—that he be without fear, meanness, or jealousy. The last was particularly important, as she had many lovers. While married to Eochaid Dála, she took Ailill mac Máta, chief of her bodyguard, as her lover. Eochaid discovered the affair, challenged Ailill to single combat, and lost. Ailill then married Medb and became king of Connacht

I did a bit of research into your situation. A lot of slaying and intrigue going on there, I must say! Well I'm still a fairly good bodyguard, and quite expert at shining light into dark places. Perhaps I could be of service. Tell me more?

We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell.

Your wisdom should show itself more richer to signify this to
the doctor. A certain convocation of politic worms are e'en at him.

Oh, very well, my dear Maeve. Forgive me, I am perhaps overly fond of quoting myself, but then I've said such brilliant things. Consider it done. Unlike Faust, there is no point at which Dorian makes a deal with the devil.

Brilliant things, most of which you stole!

Oscar Wilde was repeatedly accused of plagiarism: hence the celebrated exchange with Whistler:
"I wish I'd said that, James."
"Don't worry, Oscar, you will."

Or, to cite another example:
“The key to making up Oscar Wilde quotes is to add '~ Oscar Wilde' at the end.
- Mark Twain

Of course I plagiarize. It is the privilege of the appreciative man.

On the other hand, maybe Lucifer is not fictional.

Anyone?
