Satan is widely described as the world ultimate evil, however he does have a very soft side. He is wildly in love with Delilah who is still wildly in love with Samson. Satan rage and wrath is sometimes a direct result of Delilah sneaking away to spend time with Samson who she consider to be the ultimate lover. In one of Satan's violent rage, he hits the world with both hands and flips the world upside down. When he flipped the world upside down, his unique number of 999 was also turn upside down and the world is fooled into believing that the number of Satan to be 666. Satan is said to have a secret unknown delicious delicacy that exist only in Heaven.

Delilah is deeply taken in by a physical attraction to Samson who's penis is distinctly shaped like an "S" and hits every one of her many mislocated and anatomically incorrect "G" spots. The physical problem is for long been a major cause of sadness for Delilah who was never able to have an organism before taking the "S" from Samson. The extraordinary penis is said to make Delilah gush like a geyser.
