i think that there is no absolute evil just as there is no absolute good. actions have ampler consequences than just "X suffered so the action is evil" or "Y became happier so the action is good".
also one must answer "what are the devil's goals"? if he simply has no goals and always chooses the most evil of actions then he is kind of stupid, a destructive force that accomplishes nothing, and that might even mean he isn't even sentient.
if he does have some goals, then at one point in time he is bound to do something good depending on circumstances
