"If by baby you mean the most powerful entity ever known, the singular force that will shift the balance of power, threaten all creation, then yeah, it's a baby."
DeBlanc describing Genesis to Jesse Custer[src]

Genesis is the spawn of an angel and a demon. Genesis escaped Heaven and merged with Reverend Jesse Custer, giving him the power to command almost anyone. Genesis can only successfully merge with those with the perfect balance of good and bad.

During his final confrontation with God, Jesse released Genesis from himself with a command to "be free."

History[edit | edit source]

Birth[edit | edit source]

Genesis was born to an angel and a demon. Genesis was deemed too powerful and both the highest levels of Heaven and Hell agreed to keep Genesis a secret. Genesis was placed in a domicile and Fiore and DeBlanc were designated its custodians.[1]

Escape from Heaven[edit | edit source]

Genesis finds a suitable host in Jesse Custer

Genesis escaped its domicile and made its way to Earth. Genesis first landed in Nairobi where it merged with a preacher, though ended up causing the preacher to explode. Next, Genesis made its way to Russia in attempt to merge with a Satanist, though with the same result.[2] Next, Genesis made an attempt to merge with Tom Cruise[2][3] on [2], only to kill him as well. Eventually, Genesis found a suitable host in Jesse Custer.[2]

Genesis was eventually drawn out of Jesse after the latter agreed to give Genesis up for Eugene's return. When Genesis returned to its domicile, it was called a "bad boy" by Fiore. After DeBlanc and Fiore refused to bring Eugene back and argued with Jesse, Genesis broke out of its domicile - destroying it in the process - and returned to Jesse.[4]
