In the Book of Enoch he is portrayed as the leader of a band of angels called the grigori that are consumed with lust for mortal women and become Fallen Angels.

"3. And Semjâzâ, who was their leader, said unto them: 'I fear ye will not indeed agree to do this deed, and I alone shall have to pay the penalty of a great sin. 4. And they all answered him and said: 'Let us all swear an oath, and all bind ourselves by mutual imprecations not to abandon this plan but to do this thing.' 5. Then sware they all together and bound themselves by mutual imprecations upon it." - Chapter 6, Verse 3-5."

A full listing of the leaders of the group can be found on the 1 Enoch page. Semjâzâ convinced several other Grigori to join him in fornicating with women. As a result, he and the other sinful Grigori begot giant offspring (in Genesis called Nephilim or 'fallen ones' in Hebrew) that dominated and feasted upon humans during the days of Enoch. The Watchers' other sin was to teach humans various creative arts — especially Azâzêl's, who taught the secrets of war, which brought down the wrath of God.

God commanded the angel Gabriel to cause the Giants to wage Civil War:

"And to Gabriel said the Lord: ' Proceed against the biters and the reprobates, and against the children of fornication: and destroy [the children of fornication and] the children of the Watchers from amongst men [and cause them to go forth]: send them one against the other that they may destroy each other in battle: for length of days shall they not have." - Chapter 10, Verse 9

The judgement of the associates of Shemyazaz is described in Chapter 10 verse 12-14 of the Book of Enoch.

"11. And the Lord said unto Michael: 'Go, bind Semjâzâ and his associates who have united themselves with women so as to have defiled themselves with them in all their uncleanness. 12. And when their sons have slain one another, and they have seen the destruction of their beloved ones, bind them fast for seventy generations in the valleys of the earth, till the day of their judgement and of their consummation, till the judgement that is for ever and ever is consummated. 13. In those days they shall be led off to the abyss of fire: 〈and〉 to the torment and the prison in which they shall be confined for ever. And whosoever shall be condemned and destroyed will from thenceforth be bound together with them to the end of all generations." - Chapter 10, Verses 11-14

After the destruction of the Giants, God caused the Great Flood (Noah's flood) to wipe out the humans who had become corrupted.

I have not yet read the Book of Enoch, so this explains a lot about the Russel Crowe movie Noah.

The Days of Noah were CRAZY DAYS. Pure chaos.

I love your artwork! So much lore and wonderful art rolled into one!

In Arabic he is known as Ouza, also SemyazaShemhazaiAmezyarakAzza, and Uzza, was a major leader of the fall from heaven in Jewish and Christian mythology

the angels of justice, were under the rulership of Azza, who at this time had not yet fallen. Uzza is the tutelary angel of the Egyptians. The name Semyaza means literally "the name Azza."

The mention of Al Lat and Al Ouza was made in the Chapter of the Star (Surat Al Najm) [chapter no. 53] in the Quran:

19. Have ye seen Lat and 'Uzza,

20. And another, the third (goddess), Manat?
21. Shall the male gender be yours and the female be His?
22. Behold, such would be indeed a division most unfair!

23. These are nothing but names which ye have devised,- ye and your fathers,- for which Allah has sent down no authority (whatever). They follow nothing but conjecture and what their own souls desire!- Even though there has already come to them Guidance from their Lord!
The book of Enoch is controversial and Apocrypha because it was written around 1 AD compiled from older sources. However, Enoch and the fall of the angels were mentioned in Jude 1 of the Septuagint and in 2 Peter meaning Jesus taught his disciples about it, or they knew of the book.

For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them in chains of darkness to be held for judgment;
2 Peter 2:4 

Jude 1:14 Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them ...

Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: "See, the Lord
is coming with thousands upon thousands of his holy ones"

In the Quran Jesus is understood to be the penultimate prophet and messenger of God (Allah) and al-Masih, the Arabic term for Messiah (Christ), He is thus the most mentioned person in the Quran by reference; 25 times by the name Isa, third-person 48 times, first-person 35 times, and the rest as titles and attributes. Despite the earliest Muslim traditions and exegesis quoting somewhat conflicting reports regarding a death and its length, the mainstream Muslim belief is that Jesus did not physically die, but was instead raised alive to heaven.

Nice.. You are right about the story, more or less.. And yes, he is a Fallen One.. I don't know where you have found the term grigori.. In the Book of Enoch, they are called The Watchers.
Nevertheless, I like the art! Good work! Keep it up.
