Sorry for being unclear.
Sorry I didn't think you were trying to conflate the two. The stories are very different from the Jewish Apocrypha though. Lucifer is power hungry seeking to extend his dominion over man, thereby freeing man from God's rule, if not rule. Prometheus stole fire from the Gods to give it man, to free man from the shackles of the gods somewhat by defying Zeus punishment. Thus ending up in eternal liver-eating bad shape.
We know really very little about Lucifer as, at an entity, he's written about very seldomly. The early text just seem to indicate he was a warning to others about what happens if you try to set yourself up as an equal or above God. You will fall, essentially like the Morning Star falls from the sky in the morning, hence the term lucifer. As it's used in the Bible it tends to relate either plainly to the morning star or to people who are destined to fall.
