He used to be the "God of Gods" in the East (Canaan) and was called Baal Zebub until Gabriel came and they fought. She was the one that gave him the scar across his nose. According to Metatron, after their fight he gave up his lands in exchange for the status of Angel, but fell to Hell shortly after.
