** The Highest, the senior most servants of Hyperion who have taken over in his absence. There are technically 14 of them, though for the vast majority of the story only a few are seen at a time.
*** BigBad: Sandalphon. Most High, leader of the Empire of Light, and the most powerful mage in the world.
*** TheDragon: Lucifer. Second Highest, generally the one doing the dirty work that the others can't or won't do. May or may not [[TheStarscream harbor ambitions of his own.]]

*** TheBrute: Raziel. Eighth Highest, sits somewhere along the border between BloodKnight and AxeCrazy. [[spoiler: He becomes Shadow's first angel kill fairly early in the story.]] Later [[WreathedInFlames Metatron]], the Third Highest. The fight against him is one of the longest in the entire story.

* RedemptionEarnsLife: [[spoiler: Or rather, redemption earns something to live for. Shadow's sacrifice in the Core of Chaos keeps Venia safe, and by choosing to die to fix Erebus' mistakes it earns something that Erebus had lost. While Erebus was a burnt out sensation junkie who had lost his ability to actually appreciate life, by turning his back on who he was Shadow is able to enjoy love, friendship, and everything else that life has to offer.]]

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Initially this question focuses on Shadow, which though undeniably intelligent is also very inhuman at least at first. [[spoiler: Later on, the exact opposite is revealed.
