Satan is a Person... Not a Personification
Evil does not spring forth from the substance of the universe... it is not baked in to creation. God said that what He created was good... The true biblical message is that evil, with its real and painful consequences, has been introduced into God's creation from an external agent acting on his own initiative.
That external agent is Satan, who is a personal being active in the physical and spiritual world. A personal being means he has thoughts, plans, a freedom to choose what actions and attitudes he follows. A personal being who also was created good... but given the freedom to choose.
Satan used the personal freedom God gave and chose to oppose his creator. He made this choice at some point prior to human history and since them he has worked to spread his message of rebellion to as many as will listen.
You and I have been created in the flesh and declared good... part of that good design is the freedom to choose. However, it is through that choice given to human beings that Satan has entered into the created physical universe. And it is through the ongoing choices humans make that Satan is able to operate and dominate our world.
