It is not cowardly to fight for a single soul.
— Chloe to Lucifer
in "A Chance at a Happy Ending"

Chloe Jane Decker is the deuteragonist in the TV series Lucifer. Originally an actress, she became a homicide detective working in Los Angeles as a member of the L.A.P.D. after her father was murdered. While there, she started a relationship with fellow officer Dan Espinoza and had a daughter, Trixie Espinoza. During an investigation into a fellow cop, Malcolm Graham, Chloe became the pariah of the department after Malcolm was shot at Palmetto Street and she still continued her investigation. As a result, her and Dan's marriage fell apart because of it and the two eventually separated.

While investigating a murder at the Lux nightclub, Chloe encounters Lucifer Morningstar, who insists he is the actual Devil, but Chloe refused to believe it. Despite her protests, she's assisted by Lucifer on the case and the two end up forming a professional relationship as a detective-consultant duo as well as falling in love with each other.

After learning that the Celestial world existed, Chloe took Trixie and ran away to Rome, where she researched Lucifer to see if he was the actual embodiment of evil. While there, she was manipulated by Father William Kinley into betraying Lucifer to send him back to Hell. Though Chloe ultimately didn't go through with it, Lucifer found out, and the two were unable to reconcile, as Chloe was unsure if she could accept Lucifer's true self. However, Chloe found she couldn't be without Lucifer and tried to patch things up, only to be stopped by the arrival of Eve, who resumed her former relationship with him. The two were eventually able to make amends and became partners again, but Chloe became worried that Eve was a bad influence on him. After helping Lucifer take the first steps to forgive himself, Chloe helped him stop demons from invading L.A. before tearfully saying goodbye to Lucifer and admitting her love to him. Lucifer subsequently returned to Hell to keep the demons in line.

Chloe spent the next two months drowning her sorrows in different ways before Lucifer returned. Though happy, Chloe sensed something was off, discovering he was actually Lucifer's twin Michael. After outing him, she learned God had a hand in her birth to cross paths with Lucifer as his gift, causing another rift when Lucifer actually returned. With Amenadiel's help, she worked through her issues and the two finally became a couple. Their new relationship suffered more hiccups and Chloe was forced to face her fears regarding Lucifer's true feelings for her after Michael got inside her head when he kidnapped her. When Lucifer disappeared whilst in the process of expressing his feelings, Chloe decided to give him space to work out his issues with his Father after He showed up. The two were able to rekindle their relationship, and Chloe decided to retire from the LAPD to become Lucifer's consultant when he succeeds God after He retires. After Michael manipulated Dan's death, Chloe aided Lucifer in his war for Godhood. She was killed by Michael and went to Heaven, reuniting with her father, before Lucifer resurrected her and confessed his love. The two then defeated Michael and Chloe watched in awe as Lucifer became the new God.


Before Chloe was born, God sent Amenadiel to Earth to bless a couple that had trouble conceiving a child. Amenadiel later realized that the couple he had blessed were Penelope and John Decker. Chloe was later born in the year 1981 as a result.

Chloe's father was an officer with the L.A.P.D., while her mother was a second-rate actress. As a teenager, Chloe had a role in a low-budget movie, Hot Tub High School, in which she comes out of a jacuzzi, topless. She gained some very minor fame for the role. Unfortunately, Chloe's father died two weeks later when she was just 19. While leaving the funeral, Nick, a paparazzo, took it upon himself to break into the funeral and take pictures of her. In return, Chloe punched his camera, breaking the lens. She then gave up acting and decided to become a police officer like her father.

When she started working at the L.A.P.D., Chloe met Dan Espinoza, who was also an LAPD officer. They later married and had a daughter named Beatrice (nicknamed "Trixie"). Eventually, Chloe and Dan were separated, as she believes he would always put work before his family and never make time for them.

Throughout the Series

At the start of the "Pilot", Chloe first meets Lucifer Morningstar after an aspiring musician, Delilah, is killed in a drive-by shooting just outside of Lucifer's club, Lux. Lucifer had used his influence to coax her into the spotlight and, though he treats most of humanity with bemused indifference, becomes interested in finding Delilah's killer, becoming the unwanted partner of Chloe. Thanks to Lucifer's powers of persuasion, he is able to find out enough information about the killer from psychiatrist Linda and track him down. The culprit, Delilah's manager, Jimmy, intended to create a spike in music sales with the untimely demise of the singer. In a fit of rage, Jimmy shoots both Chloe and Lucifer - the bullets have no effect on the latter, and Lucifer makes sure to give Jimmy his punishment before rushing Chloe to the hospital. While Chloe recovers (and tries to figure out who this guy really is), Lucifer decides that it would be fun to punish criminals in L.A.

In "Lucifer, Stay. Good Devil.", Chloe is released from the hospital but put on medical leave. She spends her time digging into Lucifer's past - or trying to, as it seems like "Lucifer Morningstar" didn't exist five years ago and, more interestingly, why the bullets barely fazed him. A new case, however, diverts Chloe's attention as she responds to a murder case: a movie star’s son had died in a car crash which appears to be the result of the paparazzo chasing him. The same paparazzo, Nick, confesses to the crime but Chloe isn't so sure. Though Chloe despises Nick for crashing her father's funeral decades ago, the evidence doesn't add up. Enter Lucifer, who is keen on helping solve another case. Chloe uses Lucifer's ability to get the truth from Nick, who ends up telling them that he is covering for someone, though the "interview" is cut short by Dan who considers the case closed. He also reminds Chloe that she is still on leave.

In "Sin-Eater", Chloe and Dan decide to get a divorce.

In "Lady Parts", Chloe is searching for a new home. While drunk, she agrees to share a place with Maze. At the end of the episode, Chloe gets hit by a car after finishing a phone conversation about her new place.

At the end of "Monster", when Chloe subdues the murderer, Chloe shows genuine concern for Lucifer, telling him that he was stupid and reckless, but he had saved a woman's life. However, Lucifer tells her that he didn't care for the woman and Chloe asks him if he was trying to kill himself. When she realizes that was exactly what he was trying to do, she tells him that's not who he is. Lucifer tells her that she doesn't know who he is and what he has done. Chloe figures out that he wants to be punished for something and that is the reason why he has been acting out. She asks him to talk to her, but Lucifer tells her she can not understand and never will. Chloe is hurt by this but tells Lucifer to talk to his therapist, "talk to her before it eats you alive."

At the beginning of "Stewardess Interruptus", Chloe and Lucifer are having dinner of hamburgers and french fries. They talk about what they had said during the trial of Chloe's father. Then both feeling the moment lean forward towards each other about to share a kiss when, Lucifer brings up that he brought fries, but no ketchup. Chloe responding that she hates ketchup; however, the elevator opens and Janna the flight attendant, one of Lucifer's previous lovers, interrupts, calling out Lucifer's name. Chloe and Lucifer both look at Janna with surprise, and then Chloe, annoyed with Lucifer, takes her jacket and starts to leave. However, Lucifer stops her telling her that he didn't know Janna was coming over, and Chloe responds that she'll let them "Ketchup". But the latter stops her telling her that they had a moment and that he doesn't want her to be angry. Chloe replies that she isn't angry, but that she was happy that Janna showed up. Lucifer baffled that she was happy, and asks her why. She answers saying that Janna stopped her from making a mistake. Lucifer tries to call her, but the elevator door closes and stops him.

Towards the end of "Stewardess Interruptus", Chloe tracks down Lucifer through his cell phone. She finds him standing on a beach holding his jacket over his shoulder. She jokes about finishing paperwork that Lucifer will turn into a "moment". Lucifer surprisingly tells her that he will stop trying to have "moments", and then tells her that she deserves someone better. Chloe responds that it is not what she meant; however, he responds by saying that is what he means. He then tells her that she deserves someone better than him, as he considers Chloe special and himself not worth it. Chloe tells him, "You're probably right", before leaning forward to kiss him.

In "A Devil of My Word", Chloe regains consciousness and finds Lucifer standing over Pierce's dead body with the other men dead. She calls out to Lucifer and he turns to see her, Chloe then sees his Devil face for the first time and is shocked to discover that all of his claims of being the Devil were really true. She is left in a stunned state, stepping back as she repeats the disturbing sight twice.

In "Once Upon a Time", which takes place in an alternate universe created by God, shows what Chloe's life would have been like if her father John Decker had never been murdered. In this universe, Chloe remained an actress due to her father doing everything he can to ensure she doesn't become interested in becoming a cop like him, which led to her becoming famous as car thief turned police officer Bonnie Gennaro in the Weaponizer film franchise. This led to her never meeting Dan and having Trixie, meaning she doesn't have a child in this reality. She also never met Lucifer, Maze, Amenadiel, and Charlotte, though she does know Linda due to being one of her patients at one point. This led to Chloe helping Linda start a reality show called Doctor Linda, where she acts as a therapist to famous people. When a friend of hers is murdered she goes against her father's wishes and pretends to be a police officer to try and get information, which led her to meet Lucifer who was also investigating the murder due to it taking place in Lux. The two worked together to find the murderer, and after her father says he is proud of her the two humorously discuss the possibility of Chloe becoming a real police officer while Lucifer works with her, suggesting the two will end up doing the same thing in this universe as in the original one.

In "Everything's Okay", Chloe returns from a month trip to Europe she took with Trixie in order to process seeing Lucifer's true face. Maze confronts Chloe to tell her she would never hurt her, but she asks Maze to stay away from Trixie, lying about Trixie being mad at her. While she insists she is fine with his true form and just wants things to go back to normal, it is revealed at the end of the episode that she is working with Father Kinley, who she met in Rome, to trick Lucifer and send him back to Hell.

In "Somebody's Been Reading Dante's Inferno", Lucifer and Chloe plan on going on a date, which we learn is part of Chloe's plan to deliver Lucifer to Father Kinley in order to conduct an exorcism to return him to Hell. Chloe keeps putting off the date, grappling with the horrors that Father Kinley attributes to Lucifer's presence on Earth and her own feelings about who she believes Lucifer is. Although she does try to slip Lucifer the sedative at one point, her plan is thwarted when she breaks his wine glass accidentally. At the end of the episode, Chloe tells Father Kinley that she refuses to go along with the plan, telling him "Even if he used to be that thing in the books, he's not anymore." Chloe also learns in this episode that she makes Lucifer vulnerable, and knowing that he was willing to risk his life to save her helps her change her mind.

In "O, Ye of Little Faith, Father", Chloe and Lucifer investigate the murder of an ex-gang member. Chloe attempts to encourage Lucifer to clean up his act by being more professional, generous, and not giving in to his Devilish impulses and takes him to a soup kitchen to volunteer. Unbeknownst to her, Lucifer has been tipped off by Father Kinley that Chloe planned to betray him, whereupon he discovers her hiding the sedative in her purse and she is forced to admit that she lied to him. They discover that Father Kinley orchestrated the murders in order to bring out Lucifer's devil-face to prove his presence on Earth to the Catholic Church, but his plan is unsuccessful. Chloe arrests Father Kinley who is subsequently excommunicated. Lucifer confronts Chloe about her betrayal, and she tells him she is not sure if she is able to accept who he truly is.

In "All About Eve", Chloe's fight with Lucifer causes enough conflict that they do not work the case together. She works with Dan to solve a murder involving a stolen necklace and later finds that both Lucifer and Eve are searching for the same item. Maze confronts Chloe about lying to Lucifer and says she will move out and tells her that Linda knows everything. After going to Linda for advice, Chloe realizes how much she cares about Lucifer and goes to tell him, but leaves after finding him with Eve.

In "Expire Erect", Chloe has to infiltrate a car show and solicits Lucifer to help, which he keeps insisting is their last case together. She meets Eve and learns who she truly is. After Lucifer and Chloe are held hostage with Eve and Ella Lopez in Lux, Chloe and Lucifer are forced to confront their partnership. Chloe risks her life to save Lucifer, which shows him how much she truly cares, and he decides to continue working with her. Later, Chloe talks to Amenadiel and expresses that she feels Eve would be good for Lucifer, which Amenadiel replies that the fact she cares about other people even after everything she's gone through is why her dad is so proud of her. At first, Chloe thinks it's a platitude until she realizes Amenadiel has met up with her father in Heaven.

In "Orgy Pants to Work", we see a time jump of multiple months. Chloe expresses frustration with Lucifer's inability to separate his work life and his personal life when they are trying to solve a case and he is distracted by his outlandish behavior with Eve. She admits to him that while she wants him to be happy, she doesn't like his sexual promiscuity and it makes her jealous, although he is asleep at the time.

In "Devil Is as Devil Does", Chloe is annoyed with Lucifer brings Eve along on a case. She appeals to Dan to stop blaming Lucifer for Charlotte's death. Lucifer's antics are getting out of hand, and Chloe decides that Eve is a bad influence on Lucifer, especially once she discovers that Lucifer assaulted and permanently injured a suspect from the previous case. They fight, and Lucifer insists that Chloe will never accept him for being the Devil. After Trixie sneaks out to see Lucifer and Eve and is almost caught in a crossfire, Dan and Chloe arrive in time to find Lucifer and Eve protected her. She and Lucifer talk and she tells him that he is the Devil, but he is also an angel and encourages him to see if he still has his wings. Chloe is happy when, instead of seeking revenge, Lucifer brings in a suspect to be put in custody. Chloe visits Father Kinley in jail to defend Lucifer, and he tells her about a prophecy - "When the Devil walks the Earth and finds his first love, evil shall be released." Both Chloe and Father Kinley believe that the prophecy refers to Eve.

In "Super Bad Boyfriend", Chloe is haunted by the implications of the prophecy while they investigate the murder of a high school teacher. She admits to Lucifer that she went to see Father Kinley and tells him about the prophecy. Lucifer decides that the only way to prevent the prophecy is to break up with Eve.

In "Save Lucifer", Lucifer struggles with his own self-hatred while Chloe encourages him to be himself. She discovers that Lucifer's Devil face is starting to take over his entire body and he is unable to control it, and she helps him try to cover it up as they work to solve a case. Eve helps, which impresses Chloe. She tries to keep Lucifer distracted as the Devil in him takes over, planning to grill Father Kinley about the true meaning behind the prophecy to help Lucifer overcome what is happening to him. However, Father Kinley escapes custody and Lucifer turns completely back into his Devil self. Chloe helps Lucifer to understand that he needs to forgive himself to regain control, and once he is back in his human body, they believe they have overcome the prophecy.

In "Who's da New King of Hell?", Lucifer is happy after he found out that he is back in control of his life. Chloe encourages Lucifer to take some time off work, but Lucifer assures her that she won't have to see the monstrous side of himself again, which relieves her. However, when murder victims start rising from the dead and Charlie is kidnapped, they discover that Father Kinley, who was killed by Eve, has been taken over by a demon to fulfill the prophecy and make Charlie the new king of Hell in Lucifer's absence. Working together, Lucifer, Amenadiel, Maze, Eve, and Chloe go up against demons to save Charlie and thwart the prophecy. When Lucifer embraces his Devil side to command the demons back to Hell, Chloe looks on with pride, having finally accepted him completely for who he is. However, Lucifer knows he has to return to Hell to prevent the demons from rising again. After professing her love to him and asking him not to leave, Lucifer admits that they were wrong about the prophecy - Lucifer's first love was not Eve but, in fact, Chloe. He leaves a heartbroken Chloe behind to return to reign over Hell.

Lucifer's return

Chloe struggles with Lucifer's absence for the months following Lucifer's return to Hell. She seeks out Maze to help with detective work in a hope that this would offer her a connection with Lucifer. She is ecstatic, however, when she believes Lucifer has returned; in reality, she is unaware that Michael, Lucifer's brother, is impersonating him.

Chloe struggles with the newfound "Lucifer", and questions him over his differing personality traits. Michael, impersonating Lucifer, remarks that time is different in Hell and thousands of years there have changed him.[1] Chloe quickly becomes wary of Lucifer's newfound personality and it becomes clear to her that this impersonator is not Lucifer. Shortly after, she shoots Michael and is happy to find that it is not Lucifer. Angry that Chloe has foiled his plans, Michael reveals that Chloe is a "gift from God", specifically created for Lucifer. This shakes her, but she tries to dismiss Michael's remarks.[2]

Furthering relations

When Lucifer eventually returns to Earth, Chloe questions him over the sentiment, and when he reveals that Michael's remarks are true, she questions whether her entire life has been a lie — this drives a wedge between Lucifer and Chloe, the latter unwilling to let the former console her.[3]

Shortly after, however, Chloe and Amenadiel talk about the idea around her being a gift from God, when she is made aware that Amenadiel is the one that blessed her parents. This causes tensions between the two, but Amenadiel suggests that the "gift" is not Chloe, but the fact that she is able to see Lucifer for who he truly is; this, in sentiment, is what makes him vulnerable around her.[4]Once she realizes that she was never a gift, but bestowed with one herself, they're able to overcome the idea and grow closer than ever. They eventually consummate their relationship and decide to take things to the next level, much to everyone's delight around them.[5]

Battle for Supremacy

After Dan's murder, Chloe is consumed with guilt which Lucifer learns is what Michael intended as it would ensure that Chloe would go to Hell when she died which could entice Lucifer to take his deal. Lucifer warns Chloe of this, but she can't let go of her guilt. Chloe later stands with Lucifer alongside Amenadiel, Maze and several demons against Michael and the other angels. Using bullets made out of one of Maze's melted down demon blades, Chloe kills two angels and helps Lucifer to break the Flaming Sword apart. However, Michael mortally wounds Chloe with a broken staff made out of the Tree of Life and she dies in Lucifer's arms, letting go of her guilt and ascending into Heaven.

Rather than let Chloe die, Lucifer returns to Heaven to bring her back despite the fact that his banishment means that it will be fatal to him. Protected by Lilith's immortality and helped by a man that he had helped to escape from Hell, Lucifer locates Chloe enjoying Heaven alongside her father. Chloe is torn between staying with her father and returning, but her father, addressing her as Detective Decker, encourages Chloe to return to the people who need her as he will be waiting in Heaven for her return some day. With the ring's power fading, Lucifer gives Chloe the ring and dies due to his banishment causing Lucifer to burst into flames, but not before saying "I chose you because... I love you."

Chloe is resurrected on Earth, much to the surprise of Michael. Still holding the key part of the Flaming Sword, Chloe gains superhuman strength that allows her to beat Michael into submission. Before Chloe can kill him with Azrael's Blade out of anguish at Lucifer's death, the latter suddenly returns and convinces her not to finish the job. Taking the Flaming Sword, Lucifer cuts off Michael's wings rather than execute his brother. To Chloe and Lucifer's surprise, all of the gathered angels bow before Lucifer whose sacrifice to save Chloe has proven him worthy of becoming the new God.[6]

A visitor from the future

Over the next several months, Chloe and Lucifer have to deal with the appearance of their daughter Rory from the future who is bitter and angry over Lucifer's disappearance from their lives in the near-future. Chloe rejoins the LAPD and works with Ella, Lucifer and Carol Corbett to continue solving cases. When Lucifer chooses not to take up the position of God, Chloe encourages Amenadiel to do it instead and he follows her advice to rule from Earth instead of Heaven and begins making changes to the way being the Sovereign of Heaven works.

On August 5, the day after Lucifer supposedly disappears for good, Lucifer, Chloe and Rory take down Vincent Le Mec together, the man who had killed Dan with Chloe avenging her ex-husband's murder. Learning that Lucifer had helped Dan's soul reach Heaven, the three realize that Lucifer's true calling is to help heal the souls of Hell and help them reach Heaven. Rory returns to the future after making Lucifer promise that he won't change what has happened, finally understanding why her father left and Chloe had never explained why. Despite being heartbroken by the necessity of their separation, Chloe gives Lucifer her blessing to go.

A Wonderful Life

After Lucifer's departure, Chloe is promoted to Lieutenant and continues to solve murders with Ella, Carol and a young police officer that she encourages to become a detective. Months later, Chloe gives birth to Rory, celebrated by all of her friends and family.

Over the following decades, Chloe raises Rory as a single mother, keeping the truth about Rory's father and what happened to him a secret at the future Rory's request, only telling Rory what the future Rory had told her parents that Chloe had said. Chloe's unending fight for justice proves to be an inspiration for her daughter, resulting in Rory's bladed wings. Despite Rory's anger and pain growing up, Chloe endures it and is always there for her daughter, something that Rory appreciates even at her most upset state.[7]


Rory returns to the future where an elderly Chloe is on her deathbed. Rory apologizes for everything that she has put her mother through during her life, finally understanding what Chloe kept from her and why. Chloe reassures her daughter that she loves the life that she led and she wouldn't change any of it. When Chloe tells Rory that she will miss her, Rory reminds her mother that as an angel, she is capable of visiting Chloe whenever she wants in the afterlife. Chloe then peacefully passes away with her daughter at her side.[7]

Lucifer's Eternal Partner

After her death, Chloe, returned to her youthful appearance, arrives in a white void where Amenadiel comes to personally take his old friend to the afterlife. Chloe willingly allows Amenadiel to take her to Hell where she interrupts a session where Lucifer is trying to help Reese Getty and Vincent Le Mec, much to his surprise. Chloe offers to join Lucifer as his eternal partner in his mission and a delighted Lucifer kisses Chloe in greeting.[7]


Chloe is a down-to-earth, highly intelligent, and by-the-books cop who takes pride in her work. Unlike the irreverent Lucifer, Chloe appreciates creating order from chaos. She constantly wards off his sexual advances in season 1, and challenges his lackadaisical approach to detective work, as it's clear he doesn't really understand police work (save for a few instances where she sees him getting results). Due to her skepticism surrounding the Palmetto case, Chloe is unpopular in her department and has few friends - no one wants to be her partner.

Despite all the ugliness she has seen in her years on the job, Chloe retains a caring and friendly nature, especially towards her friends and family. She enjoys spending time with Ella, Linda, and even Lucifer and she loves her daughter Trixie more than anything, always putting her first.

Chloe has an awkward side, as shown in "Love Handles". Throughout the episode, she makes multiple awkward gestures and comments. The first time Chloe slaps Lucifer's butt after he asks her what she desired and laughs at Lucifer's comment when Ella Lopez says "ocular discharge", but then quickly makes a straight face. She also tries to finish his sentence when he says, "I hope poor Ricky made him count, enjoying what little life he had left with sex or friends", saying, "Or sex with friends" while giving an awkward wink to Lucifer. When he doesn't respond, she tells him that's where she thought he was going with his comment.

When they met, Chloe initially believed Lucifer is delusional and regularly dismisses his claims of being the Devil. Though she admits there is something abnormal and inexplicable about him, the level-headed Chloe also notices that he experiences mortal wounding. After working together, she no longer believes that Lucifer is delusional and is convinced that Lucifer is slightly quirky, has delusions of grandeur, and his Biblical references including calling himself "The Devil" are metaphors for working through his traumatic past. Chloe generally enjoys his company and is hurt when she feels that he is being dishonest with her; she prefers his insistent claims of identifying as The Devil over his silence when pressed about secrets. She has been known to tease him on occasion, much to Lucifer's chagrin. When she discovered his claims were true after seeing his true face, she was left in a stunned state and could only repeat "it's all true" and was left unsettled.

Following her realization that Lucifer is indeed the Devil, Chloe had to really consider whether the man she had come to love was simply putting on an act. As a result, she was manipulated by Father Kinley into believing Lucifer was evil incarnate. However, she changed her mind after Lucifer reveals he is vulnerable around her. When Eve wedged her way into their lives, Chloe was initially supportive, saying Eve was good for Lucifer since Eve accepted Lucifer's devil side while she did not. However, when Lucifer began becoming increasingly violent toward criminals, seeking to punish them on the spot rather than catch them, Chloe became increasingly worried Eve was encouraging Lucifer's negative traits. Finally, in "Who's da King of Hell", Chloe finally admitted to Lucifer that she loved him, even saying that she is no longer afraid of him but afraid of losing him.

In the alternate universe shown in "Once Upon a Time", Chloe is similar to her prime universe counterpart in many ways, such as being steadfast, composed, and strong-willed. However, she differs in that she feels like her life is unfulfilled due to being an actress as opposed to a police officer. In the parallel universe, Chloe did not experience the loss of her father, who was a respected policeman, and she, therefore, did not become a police officer, did not have a child. Chloe in this universe is, therefore, more carefree and open. However, because she did not have the same rules to adhere to as a police officer, she was also more aggressive and handled suspects more violently.

Physical Appearance

Chloe is a beautiful woman in her late 30's with a slim, however, athletic build, standing about 5'7", with bright blue eyes and dirty blonde hair, which she occasionally has up in a ponytail or a knot, but also has it down past her shoulders. She is modestly endowed, with Lucifer noting her bra size is B36.

Early in her career, Chloe wore the uniform typical for rookie police officers, or beat cops. Now, for around 10 years, she wears clothing authentic to her job as a detective. In Season 1 at first, her attire seemed more professional suits, accurate to most detectives. Later throughout the series, her wardrobe changed to more casual clothing; plain shirts with collared over-shirts (such as jackets and coats of different material), casual skinny pants, boots, etc.

Powers and Abilities


Inherent Powers

Likely due to the miraculous circumstances of her birth, Chloe has some mystical powers. As is later revealed, this is mainly due to Lucifer self-actualizing himself to be vulnerable to her.

  • Desire Exhibition Immunity: Chloe is immune to Lucifer's powers of persuasion when they are used towards her. However, she is still affected by the celestial abilities from other angels, such as Amenadiel's chronokinesis, as was shown when she became frozen when time was slowed or stopped.
  • Rendering Immortals vulnerable: Though Chloe did not initially affect Lucifer, as shown in how he is shot without being injured in the "Pilot", she was able to shoot and injure him a few episodes later in "Manly Whatnots ." Lucifer eventually suspected that it was Chloe's presence that made him vulnerable and successfully tests this theory by cutting his hand while talking to her in "St. Lucifer ." Marcus Pierce later speculated in "Anything Pierce Can Do I Can Do Better " that it was Chloe's love that made immortal beings vulnerable - a theory that Lucifer initially rebuked but later agreed with when he found that he could still be injured in Chloe's presence regardless of any feelings for Pierce. In "Quintessential Deckerstar," Amenadiel theorized that God did not determine the situation of any of the characters and, in fact, they cast judgment upon themselves. Thus, to this point, it is actually Lucifer's love for Chloe ("Who's da New King of Hell? ") that causes his mortality in her presence. Unlike Lucifer, Pierce's mortality is not affected by Chloe's proximity. It's eventually determined that Lucifer chooses to be vulnerable around her, so much so that he's subconsciously able to detect whenever she's nearby. When he believed himself to be unworthy of Chloe's love and incapable of love because of his father, Lucifer became completely invulnerable around her presence. The only exception is when he makes himself vulnerable around Rory to prove he loves his daughter.
  • Desire Exhibition: After spending a night with Lucifer, she somehow took his power. She is able to use it as easily as Lucifer, but only on him, possibly as a manifestation of his emotional barriers breaking down. Lucifer regains his power once he boards himself up out of fear of being undeserving of Chloe's love, and as a result of his newfound invulnerability around her, it is unknown if she still possesses it.
  • Immunity to Seduction: While almost every other person Lucifer comes across appears to instantly desire him carnally, Chloe is immune to this along with Lucifer's other powers. As the series progresses, fewer women find their way into Lucifer's bed as Lucifer's focus narrows to Chloe. Amenadiel theorized that Lucifer reflects most people's desires back towards them, and Chloe's immunity to Lucifer's powers enables her to be the only mortal that can truly see Lucifer for who he actually is and not just a reflection of their own desires.

Powers from the Flaming Sword

Due to her continued use of the Key part of the Flaming Sword, Chloe gained access to celestial qualities. However, over time the power begun to corrupt her, as it inevitably happens to all humans who possess a piece of the Flaming Sword. After Azrael's Blade was returned to Heaven, she lost these powers.

  • Biological Modification: The key modified Chloe's body to have certain celestial qualities, such as the ability to survive the journey between different dimensions, which allowed her to travel to Hell while still being a living human. Thanks to this, she was also able to procreate with an angel who has all of their power without the angel having to temporarily lose their power to do so.
  • Superhuman Stamina: The key gave her stamina comparable to that of an angel.
  • Super Strength: While holding the key part of the Flaming Sword, Chloe gained superhuman strength to the point that she was able to beat Michael into submission with just one hand. Chloe continued to use it for some time to subdue human criminals. It also allowed Lucifer to have sex with Chloe without holding back.
  • Spirit Communication: For a short time, Chloe was able to see Dan Espinoza's ghost, something that only angels and demons are capable of. However, when Lucifer returned Azrael's Blade to Heaven, Chloe lost this ability.


From what Lucifer's told me, you are the smartest, most capable, most resourceful person he's ever known.
Eve to Chloe in "Expire Erect"
  • Deductive Analysis: Experienced, observant, and objective and with almost 20 years on the job, Chloe is a skilled detective with good instincts which uses to find clues in her work. However, she often relies on physical evidence and can be stubborn at times, often with the idea of Lucifer's true nature. Though after learning of the supernatural, she starts doubting her judgment in non-human affairs and has to ask Amenadiel, Maze, and Lucifer what's real and myth.
  • Marksmanship: Chloe has an excellent aim with a gun.
  • Combatant: Chloe is trained in self-defense, including karate, jujitsu, and boxing. During the time that she was empowered by the necklace of the Flaming Sword, Chloe was able to hold her own and overpower Michael, though she took him by surprise and he didn't fight back. She was also able to hold her own against Maze for a time, as well as having been able to fight Lucifer on equal footing when she was trying to take Azrael's blade, albeit he wasn't trying to hurt her.
  • Acting: She is a former professional actress.

  • Lauren German was announced as the actor playing Chloe Decker on March 10, 2015.[8]
  • The character's name was originally Chloe Dancer before the surname was changed to Decker.
  • The name Chloe is a feminine name meaning "green shoot" in Greek, referring to new plant growth in the spring. This was an epithet of the Greek goddess Demeter.
  • The name Chloe is also mentioned by Paul in one of his epistles in the New Testament in the context of "the house of Chloe", a leading early Christian woman in Corinth, Greece.[9]
  • According to Lucifer:
    • Chloe snores and sounds like an "Albanian field wench".
    • Chloe is his first love.
    • Chloe is ticklish
  • Chloe wants to be part of the police force is because she doesn't like people who gets away with something that they shouldn't.
  • The range in which she makes Lucifer vulnerable seems to fluctuate with their relationship.
    • Being in his immediate presence always makes him vulnerable.
    • When his invulnerability was needed to save people blocked from them by a poison smoke in "Love Handles", she needed to go quite a distance before it kicked in.
    • When their relationship started going downhill in Season 4, the area shrank considerably. Even just being outside a building was enough to stop the effect/restore his immortality.
  • As seen in Season 5, Chloe's LAPD rank is Detective II.
  • Most of Chloe's clothing is blue, contrasting Lucifer's red; this color choice even extends to her underwear as seen in "St. Lucifer" and "Vegas with Some Radish".
  • Her western zodiac sign is Cancer and her Chinese zodiac sign is a Rooster.
  • Chloe Decker is the last character who spoke before the show ended.
    • The last words are: "I thought you could use a partner."
  • Chloe is also the last character seen to die on screen. (Flash forward)
  • Chloe is the only known human soul to willingly go to Hell just to spend eternity with Lucifer.
