I'd decided a little while back what to do with devils. I'll create seven types (or maybe eight to have an over-devil), each keyed to one of the Seven Classical Vices. I'll mine my various print and online sources to figure out what names, appearances, and powers each devil shall receive. Devils are tempters of mortals. Their domain is Sin. They could care less about unintelligent creatures. They exist to tempt humans, demi-humans, and other intelligent creatures to do bad things.
So, both types are Chaotic (I come from Classic D&D, so just Law-Neutrality-Chaos for alignments in my game), and both types would be considered "evil," but both have very different flavors.
I'll likely borrow some of the AD&D devils, demons or daemons as inspiration, but refluff them to match the above.
