    Character: Mr. Lucius Needful/The Devil
    Episode: "Something Ricked This Way Comes"

Playing the owner of a cursed antique store that makes wishes come true at a cost, Mr. Lucius Needful was Summer’s evil boss and soon attracted the ire of Rick, who enjoyed foiling his every plan. Until he got bored, of course.
