    In General 

  • Always Lawful Good/Light Is Good: Pretty much all of them are staunchly aligned with the forces of good. Those who aren't swiftly stop being angels.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Played pretty straight. There is technically a way for an angel to make love, but it involves both they and their partner going through a lengthy purification ritual that lasts several hours, entering a special magical barrier, and then the angel has to not once have lustful, jealous, or possessive thoughts as they do the deed, only pure unsullied love. The slightest weakness at any stage of this process causes the angel to fall, so few of them take the risk. Later in the series, collaborators across factional lines help design special zones where angels can blow off a little steam without instantly falling.
  • Gold and White Are Divine: Most Angels have white wings while higher ranked Angels have gold wings.
  • Holy Halo: All Angels have these with higher ranked Angels having more than one.
  • Light 'em Up: All Angels can use Light to create weapons to fight with.
  • Our Angels Are Different: Served God from the Bible and are good nature.


God from the Bible

God is the true leader of the Heaven faction until He died in the Great War along with the original Four Great Satans. The cause of His death and the reason He created the Sacred Gears are still some of the biggest questions of the series.

  • Big Good: To the angels and possibly to the entire series.
  • God Is Dead: He died in the Great War.
  • Knight Templar: Despite being said to value forgiveness and redemption, He did create an Angel system where having "impure thoughts" somehow diverts Angels from the teachings of the God in the Bible and marks them as Fallen as well being the one responsible for kicking off the Great War out of suspicion the devils would rise to usurp Him.
  • Posthumous Character: He died long before the series began. It's hinted so far that He pulled off a Dying Moment of Awesome against Trihexa.


The Four Great Seraphim/"Burning Angels"

    In General 

The Four Great Seraphim

The Four Great Seraphim, also known as the Burning Angels are the four angels who have become the guardians of the Throne of Heaven. They took God's place as the current leaders of Heaven after His death in the Great War.

  • Barrier Maiden: In volume 21, except Gabriel, the Seraphim and their brave saints (minus their Aces) along with the rest of the Alliance leaders are forced to seal Trihexa and suppress its power inside that seal. It's not known how many years it will take, but it will be at least ten thousand.
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted and Downplayed. They are the Holy variation of the Four Great Satans, but the Satans aren't necessarily "Evil" either.
  • God Job: In a way, as the original God died in the Great War, and the four Seraphim are his temporary replacements.
  • Last of Their Kind: A non-fatal example. At volume 21, Gabriel seems to be the only member of the current Four Great Seraphim left.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Is it the Four Great "Seraphim" or "Seraphs"? Or both?note 


Archangel Michael
Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya (Japanese) and Aaron Roberts (English)

Michael is the leader of the Angels and the Four Great Seraphim in Heaven, whose Brave Saint suit is the Suit of Spades. He is the current leader of Heaven, as God Is Dead in this story.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Can engage in a snark-off with Azazel just fine.
  • God: Technically, since he's the acting leader of Heaven, he's the current acting God after the death of the actual one.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Doesn't even begin to describe him.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: A non-fatal example, but he seals himself to suppress Trihexa.
  • Nice Guy: How nice exactly? When Issei pleads for him to allow Asia and Xenovia (now Demons and therefore racial-enemies to Angels) to pray without pain, knowing how much they love God; he graciously grants said-request.
    "The Almighty Himself did believe in forgiveness and redemption; so I suppose exceptions to this outdated punishment is acceptable."
  • Shipper on Deck: Supports Irina's feelings for Issei despite the former being an Angel and the later being a Devil. He even had a room constructed that would allow Irina to have sex with Issei without becoming a Fallen Angel.
  • Tranquil Fury: Yes, he can get angry. When Rizevim invaded Heaven and had his evil dragons rampage and disturb the souls of the dead, Michael didn't swear, rampage, or even raise his voice, he just voiced a polite greeting and summoned a spear of light large enough to be a buttress for a building then threw it at him. Rizevim blocked it and then ran away.
  • Tareme Eyes: As expected of the calm and tranquil Micheal. His are noticeably droopy that he looks like's in a state of nearly crying even when smiling or snarking.


Gabriel is Michael's sister and one of the Four Great Seraphim. Her Brave Saint suit is the Suit of Hearts. Appears in the side story "Armageddon at Sports Day".
  • Boobs of Steel: Azazel mentions that the female angels describe Gabriel’s breasts as the finest. She's also known as The Strongest Woman in Heaven.
  • The Ditz: Doesn't seem to notice that Issei was trying to use Dress Break on her during the calvary race. And simply brushes off the fact that Issei and Azazel were literally blasting away at each other at the relays while passing through them.



Uriel is one of the Four Great Seraphim of the Angel faction, whose Brave Saint suit is the Suit of Diamonds.




Raphael is one of the Four Great Seraphim of the Angel faction, whose Brave Saint suit is the Suit of Clubs.

    Irina Shido 

Irina Shido

See her entry on the Occult Research Club page.



Metatron is a Seraph from heaven (but not one of the Four Great Seraphim).

Fallen Angels

Fallen Angels are angels who renounce God's teachings and are exiled from Heaven. Initially led by Azazel, they form a truce with the Devils and Angels as part of the alliance. While some of the Fallen Angels have good intentions, others embrace their baser passions for impure thoughts for their selfish goals.

    In General 
  • Always Chaotic Evil: Are introduced as such: even disregarding the long-standing feud between them and the Devils, Fallen Angels are roundly underhanded, often-violent jerks. Far less so as the series goes on.
  • Became Their Own Antithesis: At some point before the series begins, the formerly-idealistic angels' renunciations from God's teachings Heaven caused them to transform into sadistic monsters.

  • Face–Heel Turn: They used to be loyal to God before becoming corrupted and cast out from Heaven.
  • Fallen Angel: Once beloved angels from Heaven who turned to the dark side.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Most of the Fallen Angels become part of The Alliance with the Devils and Angels.
  • Jerkass: Oh, big time. Most of the Fallen Angels have very cruel and sadistic personalities, save for some like Azazel and Baraqiel (and the former has his moments).
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Once they finish their goals, Fallen Angels can erase memories of themselves from everyone around them.
  • Light 'em Up: Their main method of attack: despite falling from grace, they retain the same abilities as normal angels, including light-based moves that absolutely devastate Devils.
  • Sex God: Fallen Angels have this reputation In-Universe.
  • Sex Is Evil, and I Am Horny: Fitting for a series like this, the fastest way for an Angel to fall is to have lustful thoughts (just like what happened to The Watchers in myth).

Yuuma Amano/Raynare
Voiced by: Hitomi Nabatame (Japanese) and Felecia Angelle (English)

Raynare is a fallen angel and associate of Azazel. She is dispatched by Azazel to disguise herself as Yuuma Amano and assassinate him for his Sacred Gear. She later manages to steal Asia Argento's Sacred Gear, Twilight Healing, but by doing so, she ends up being cornered by the Occult Research Club and eventually killed by Rias Gremory.

  • And Then What?: Presuming Raynare managed to escape Issei in volume 1, things would still have not gone well for her when she got back to her boss, Azazel. She and her minions, especially Freed, had violated the fragile truce between the Fallen Angel and Devil factions by both openly trespassing on Gremory territory, and attacking Issei after he became Rias's servant. Lastly, by murdering Asia and stealing her Twilight Healing sacred gear, she earned Issei's eternal enmity towards her entire race, and Issei would go on to become a significantly powerful individual. Had Issei not gone on to hunt her down like a rabid animal, Azazel might have killed her off himself as a peace offering to try and slake his righteous wrath.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Issei Hyoudou. She killed him after his first date. When she eventually kills Asia Argento, who befriended him moments earlier, by stealing her Sacred Gear to become invincible, Issei gets really furious and vows to take her down.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her Stripperiffic outfit in the anime doesn't bother to hide her stomach.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of Volume 1.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: She constantly raves about earning Azazel's approval and becoming his second-in-command, but ultimately, Raynare has next-to-no authority and is just a low-level scout with delusions of grandeur. In fact, if they hadn't let Issei reclaim his pride, any other member of Rias' peerage could have ripped her to pieces.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She posed as a sweet, sensitive, and innocent girl to lure Issei to his death. She's really just a vicious, petty and sadistic bitch who torments people For the Evulz.
  • Broken Pedestal: She becomes one to Issei over the course of Volume 1. She is introduced as a cheerful girl who asks him to become her boyfriend and he accepts it. The pedestal, however, is quickly shattered when Issei realizes too late that she turns out to be a Fallen Angel. By the end of the volume, he's thoroughly sickened by what she did to him and Asia, before asking Rias to kill her.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Boyfriend or not, she'll double-cross them in an instant.
  • Combat Stilettos: She wears high-heeled shoes when in her One-Winged Angel Stripperiffic outfit.
  • Create Your Own Hero: Raynare killing Issei effectively allows him to become a powerful and respected Devil in the Occult Research Club.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's a skilled fighter and a Fallen Angel who gets tied up with Azazel.
  • Destination Defenestration: In episode 5 of the anime, Issei uses his Sacred Gear to send her flying out of a church window.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: Issei has no idea that Raynare is plotting to kill him for his Sacred Gear and by the time he realizes this, it's too late.
  • Did You Just Flip Off Cthulhu?: Raynare taunts Issei after stealing Asia's Sacred Gear... and gets curb-stomped for it.
  • Dirty Coward:
    • Loves to stand around, taunt and torment people she thinks are inferior to her, but the moment she realizes she's in trouble, she tries to run away, happily sacrificing her minions in the process.
    • She laughs at Issei when he spills out his lingering affections toward her, mocking him as completely unworthy of being boyfriend material, yet attempts to fall back on their date when Rias is about to kill her. Issei expresses disgust she's only now responding to his feelings when it's convenient for her, and gives Rias permission to finish her off.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: She is this for the first saga. Despite killing Issei and getting Asia's Sacred Gear, she doesn't get that far as Rias obliterates her.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Raynare taunts Issei about his lingering affections towards her in front of Rias. In response, Issei has Rias blast her into dust.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Her betrayal of Issei, by running him through with her spear and leaving him to die. Judging by Issei's shocked reaction, he had no idea that she was going to kill him given his possession of his Sacred Gear.
  • Evil Costume Switch: In the anime only, she transforms her regular clothes to her Stripperific outfit.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Raynare has a deep and villainous voice in her true form, courtesy of Hitomi Nabatame in Japanese and Felecia Angelle in English.
  • Face of an Angel, Mind of a Demon: Her facial expressions are softer and less horrifying in the light novel and manga than in the anime, but she's equally cruel in all versions and her innocent appearance makes her more unsettling.
  • Famous Last Words: "You wouldn't let them hurt me... would you, Issei?" Said to Issei when she asks to become her boyfriend again. Unfortunately for Raynare, he asks Rias to kill her, which she does.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: In her One-Winged Angel Stripperiffic outfit in the anime.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her overconfidence and deceptive nature ultimately leads to her death at Rias's hands.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She seems friendly enough for Issei to become her boyfriend. Too bad about her carrying out Azazel's orders to assassinate him for his Sacred Gear.
  • Femme Fatale: A girl who ends a seemingly perfect date by inviting a boy, who did her no wrong, to a semi-secluded area just to kill him certainly qualifies.
  • Game Face: Her horrified expression before Rias vaporizes her is a twisted, fanged, inhuman grimace.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: After stealing Asia's Twilight Healing.
  • Hate Sink: Issei absolutely hates her for causing his first death and killing Asia, and Rias hates her for toying with Issei's emotions. Not to mention her fellow Fallen Angels hate her for being a Red Shirt character.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: She wears leather as part of her One-Winged Angel Stripperiffic outfit in the anime.
  • Honey Trap: She tricks Issei into going out on a date with her to the point that she eventually kills him.
  • Hotter and Sexier: The light novel and the manga version of her One-Winged Angel reveal was just showing off her wings. The anime, however, got her to transform into a Stripperific costume.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: Combined with Inferiority Superiority Complex. Despite her Smug Snake attitude, she's painfully aware that her fellow Fallen Angels look down on her for being a Red Shirt, which is why she wants Asia's Sacred Gear to make herself special to her side (it's about as close to a redeeming quality as you can get with her). It doesn't work because despite gaining the ability to heal, her other combat abilities are still the same and Issei still manages to defeat her despite being a novice.
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: A Stripperiffic version in the anime, which resembles a Dominatrix outfit.
  • It's All About Me: She claims she's stealing Asia's Sacred Gear to help Azazel and Shemhaza, but it's clear she just wants it for her own ego and so she can get back at her higher ranking peers.
  • Jerkass: She's spiteful and sadistic when dealing with Rias and her peerage.
  • Just Following Orders: She tries to justify killing Issei with this trope after being cornered. However, Issei doesn't buy it for a second and has Rias kill her for good.
  • Meaningful Name: Although this is working without the component kanji (and, therefore, a way to look them up), "Yuuma" sounds like "Night Fiend"—and "fiendish" barely begins to describe her killing of Issei. Never mind her actually being a Fallen Angel...
    • She eventually reveals she chose that name because "Yuu" means "night" or some equivalent, which was when she planned on killing Issei!!
    • Her full alias, in traditional order, means "Heaven's Evening Daze (Ama no Yuuma)". Given that she was once an angel from Heaven prior to her falling, it's justified.
      • The alias itself is also an oxymoron, as Heaven doesn't usually have a night setting.
  • Near-Villain Victory: Raynare kills Asia and steals her Sacred Gear to become invincible. Raynare's scheme fails when Issei follows her to the abandoned church and overpowers her.
  • Never My Fault: When she initially murders Issei on Azazel's orders, she tells him to "blame the God who gave him a sacred gear" instead of herself. Then when she meets Issei again as a reincarnated devil, blames him for it. Lastly when she steals Asia's sacred gear, murdering her in the process, she tries to claim it was done for Azazel's sake when she's beaten by Issei and facing a rightfully pissed Rias. Unfortunately for Raynare, she gets fried for it.
  • One-Winged Angel: She transforms into her true Fallen Angel form just before she kills Issei.
  • Purple Eyes: She is a Fallen Angel with violet eyes.
  • Rapunzel Hair: According to her character sheet, it reaches all the way to her waist.
  • Reality Ensues: Her new healing powers don't help against an opponent that can boost enough to knock her out in one hit.
  • Red Shirt: Her fellow Fallen Angels view her as nothing more than a disposable character. They're proven right when Rias kills her.
  • Retconjuration: After killing Issei, she erased evidences of her existence as "Yuuma Amano" from anyone, ranging from memories and records.
  • Shoulders of Doom: In her One-Winged Angel Stripperiffic outfit in the anime.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: It's not immediately obvious to the audience, since they're seeing things from Issei's perspective and he's personally involved and new to the supernatural world himself. But for all her raving about earning Azazel's approval and becoming his second-in-command, Raynare is a low-level scout with delusions of grandeur. Not only does she have next to no authority (just three other Fallen Angels and a pack of rogue Exorcists working with her out of convenience), but she's weak - if they hadn't let Issei reclaim his pride, any other member of Rias's peerage could have torn her apart.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Is a fairly minor villain who dies halfway through the first season. But she is the one who essentially kickstarted the plot and is the reason why Issei and Aria are in the Occult Club. Her betrayal of Issei also left him a traumatized Insecure Love Interest.
  • Smug Snake: She thinks she's vastly superior to everyone she comes across, and sees her underlings as nothing but mere tools, at best. She was only horrified about learning of the deaths of Dohnaseek, Mittelt, and Kalawarner because it meant she had no escape options, and nobody would come to her aid when facing down the enraged ORC.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Fansubs and scanlations often mistranslate her name as "Reynalle". However, official material on the first BD volume claims her name to be Raynare.
  • Spikes of Villainy: On her right shoulder pad in her One-Winged Angel Stripperiffic outfit in the anime.
  • Starter Villain: She is the first villain that Issei encounters, as serves as this for the entire series.
  • Stripperific: She wears a skimpy outfit after her One-Winged Angel reveal in the anime's first episode.
  • Stupid Evil: Mocks Issei far too much resulting in her asskicking, especially since she had no real reason to stay than petty evilness.
  • This Cannot Be!: Her reaction when she is defeated by Issei.
  • Token Motivational Nemesis: To Issei. He still looks back on the memories of his first date with her with warmth and fondness, but her betrayal traumatized him for a very long time when it comes to love.
  • Too Many Belts: On her boots and top.
  • A Tragedy of Impulsiveness: This is how she gets killed off. Her impatience in trying to seek approval from Azazel leads to her entering Gremory territory without permission, toying with Issei's feelings and trying to steal Asia's Twilight Healing. Predictably, it doesn't end well.
  • Underboobs: Her suit covers the lower half of her breasts while in her anime-exclusive One-Winged Angel Stripperiffic outfit.
  • Underestimating Badassery: She underestimates Issei's Sacred Gear powers and gets the crap beaten out of her in response.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Considering the fact that Issei's a Nice Guy who befriended and went out on a date with her as his first girlfriend, it really was a jerk move to kill him.
  • Unwitting Pawn:
    • Everything she did to ensure her assassination of Issei was allowed to happen by Azazel.
    • Diodora was actually counting on her to kill Asia, only for him to kill her and reincarnate Asia with one of his evil pieces while appearing to be her savior. This fails because he didn't expect Issei to defeat Raynare first.
  • The Vamp: Uses the promise of sex to abuse and exploit people. Freed, of all people, calls her out on it, and completely abandons her when she refuses to deliver.
  • Villain Ball: Her plan to murder Asia and steal her Sacred Gear might have succeeded, but she taunts Issei about her death afterwards. This results in Issei using his Sacred Gear to beat Raynare and Rias ultimately killing her.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Raynare loses it after finding out Issei's stronger than her because of his Sacred Gear.
  • Villains Want Mercy: At the end of Volume 1, during their fight, Raynare spends most of her fight with Issei taunting him over how she killed his friend Asia, as well as laughing at Issei when he spills out his lingering affections toward her, mocking him as completely unworthy of being boyfriend material. When she's defeated by a righteously pissed Issei and left at his mercy, she begs for her life, pulling such cards as reminding him that she was her girlfriend and blaming her own actions on Azazel and God, and going so far as to show him the armband he bought for her as a cherished treasure. Issei doesn't buy it for a second, but just doesn't have the heart to kill someone whom he shared a precious day of love and happiness with... so he asks Rias to do it for him.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Averted when she and Issei met up again while Asia was with him. After Issei showed off his Sacred Gear, she just shoots him with a light spear in the stomach and mocks him because she thought he only had Twice Critical. Played very straight later on, when getting Asia's Sacred Gear gains her a huge Villain Ball, staying to mock Issei leading to her ass getting kicked.
  • The Worf Effect: Issei beats the tar out of Raynare thanks to his awakened Sacred Gear.
  • Wounded Gazelle Warcry: Tries this on Issei when he was about to kill her, sinking so low as to show him the armband he bought for her as a cherished treasure. In the anime, she also reverts to her civilian clothes in an attempt to make her act more convincing. Fortunately for her, he just doesn't have the heart to kill someone whom he shared a precious day of love and happiness with. Not so fortunately, he sadly asks Rias to do what he couldn't, which she does.

  • Ascended Extra: Only Dohnaseek appeared in the light novel where he first attacked Issei. In the anime, the other two are introduced.

    Kalawarner: What a joke!
  • Girlish Pigtails: Mittelt again, though a short variation.
  • Nice Hat: Dohnaseek wears a fedora.
  • Killed Offscreen: In the light novels, all three of them are killed offscreen by Rias. The anime version, on the other hand, has a scene where Rias easily turns them into dust when they have a chance to taunt Issei.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em:
    • Dohnaseek leaves when Issei is rescued by Rias from his attack.
    • In the anime, once Issei activates his Sacred Gear in front of Kalawarner, she makes a hasty retreat.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Kalawarner wears a dark red suit and has black shoes in her usual uniform. Not only that, but she's part of Raynare's group.
  • Peek-a-Bangs: Kalawarner covers part of her eyes with her long hair.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Kalawarner has long hair reaching all the way down to her waist.
  • Red Shirt: Seeing as they were curb-stomped by Rias and Akeno, well...

  • Sharp-Dressed Man: Dohnaseek wears a business suit to go with his hat.
  • She's Got Legs: Kalawarner has long legs as her skirt makes it quite clear.
  • Statuesque Stunner: Kalawarner stands at 5'10" according to official material, more-so than either Rias or Grayfia.
  • Warm-Up Boss: Despite attacking Issei and mocking his demise, Kalawarner, Dohnaseek and Mittelt are easily obliterated into dust.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Particularly in the novels, where they're killed offscreen.
  • The Worf Effect: Rias effortlessly kills Kalawarner, Dohnaseek and Mittelt when she and Akeno confront them.

  • Zettai Ryouiki: Mittelt wears thigh-high stockings.


Voiced by: Hiroki Yasumoto (Japanese) and Mike McFarlandnote  (English)

Kokabiel is a fallen angel who steers the plot of the third volume. He steals the pieces of Excalibur to strengthen the fallen angel faction and to tempt Michael to start an all-out war.

  • And I Must Scream: His ultimate fate. Azazel seals him in Cocytus, the deepest part of the Underworld.
  • Barehanded Blade Block: Uses only two fingers to block Kiba's sword.
  • Big Bad: The main antagonist of Volume 3 and the Starter Villain of the second saga.
  • Blood Knight: Wants a war to get fighting starting once again.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He gets defeated by Vali at the start of the second saga.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a deep voice befitting for a villain, courtesy of Hiroki Yasumoto.
  • Fantastic Racism: He wants to restart the war between the Three Factions just to prove that Fallen Angels are the superior race.
  • Fate Worse than Death: He's sealed up in Cocytus after Vali defeats him.
  • For the Evulz: Wants to start another war just so that he won't be bored. That and he's willing to prove that the fallen angels are superior.
  • Human Popsicle: His punishment for attempting to reignite war was eternal freezing in Cocytus.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: Kills Vlapis for outliving his usefulness.
  • Knight of Cerebus: He's the first enemy that the ORC was completely incapable of beating, and he drops the bombshell that God Is Dead.
  • Obviously Evil:
    • His face alone in the second PV of the second season looks like he fits more in the devil society than in the fallen angel group.
    • Its also a case of Fridge Brilliance, due to the fact that Angels in the Bible are known be terrifying in appearance.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Well, he is racist, after all...
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: Which he's well aware of. He boasts of planning to rape Sona and Rias, so he can kickstart a war with the devil faction, because he knew they both have high-ranking relatives that wouldn't let such a heinous act go unanswered. His own allies seal him away in Cocytus as a direct result.
  • Starter Villain: Since Volume 3 is the start of the second arc, Kokabiel is the first main enemy faced there.
  • This Cannot Be!: When he finds himself losing to Vali, who lampshades how stereotypical such lines are before finishing him off.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Kokabiel loses it when Vali enters the fight and defeats him.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: Manages to become this for the entire (incomplete at that time) Gremory team. They could barely scratch the dude and it took Vali to beat the crud out of him.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Even though Kokabiel tried to start another war, the other fallen angels still think of him as a comrade and thought that what he did was stupid.
  • The Worf Effect: He both Worfs and is Worfed. The ORC could barely scratch him, establishing that while they are badass, they have a long way to go before they are major players power-wise. He is immediately one-shot by Vali, establishing him as a major player, power-wise.

Baraqiel is the father of Akeno Himejima and widower of Shuri Himejima who first appears in the seventh volume. He is acting as a bodyguard to Odin when he witnesses Akeno with Issei going to a love motel.

  • Action Dad: He helps Akeno fight with Issei against Loki.
  • All Women Are Doms, All Men Are Subs: Apparently engaged in BDSM sessions with his wife every night back in the day.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Akeno Himejima views his father as one, as he arrived too late to save Shuri before she was murdered by her own family members. However, he still loves his daughter to the point that they reconcile when all is said and done in volume 7.
  • Asskicking Equals Authority: He's a capable fighter and eventually becomes the Vice-Governor General of the Fallen Angels.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: By the end of volume 7, he and Akeno help Issei foil Loki's plans using their Holy Lightning.
  • Badass Baritone: He has a deep and powerful voice befitting for a bodyguard and fighter, courtesy of Tetsu Inada in Japanese and Kent Williams in English.
  • Badass Beard: He sports a black chin strap and mustache befitting his status as a bodyguard and a fighter.
  • Badass Long Robe: Baraqiel wears a long robe as part of his usual attire.
  • Broken Pedestal: He becomes one to Akeno Himejima. She deeply loved her father as a child. But then, her mother Shuri was killed and Baraqiel failed to save her. Akeno disowned her father and went into exile. She makes several points to Issei about how Baraqiel wasn't around when she needed him the most, even saying it to the latter's face. It becomes a Rebuilt Pedestal when Issei has Akeno reconcile with her father for good.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He wears a black battle uniform, but is still a heroic Fallen Angel.
  • Disappeared Dad: He is this to Akeno for a while, up until they meet again in Volume 7.
  • Elemental Powers: His main weapon is Holy Lightning.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Seems to always have this whenever he's around.
  • Happily Married: He was married to Shuri Himejima after she nursed him back to health.
  • It's All My Fault: Baraqiel blames himself for not being able to rescue Shuri Himejima. It's later revealed that he's directly responsible for this when the Himejimas killed her because of Akeno's Fallen Angel blood.
  • Light 'em Up: His Holy Lightning is light-based.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Baraqiel is in despair at how he was unable to save Shuri Himejima from being murdered by her own relatives and it filled Akeno with rage.
  • My Greatest Failure: How he views Shuri Himejima's murder. Volume 7 reveals that even though he killed the Himejimas who murdered Shuri given their Fantastic Racism towards Fallen Angels, he was unable to rescue her. No wonder Akeno is so upset with her father over it.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: Teaming up with Akeno to help Issei defeat Loki at the end of volume 7.
  • Number Two: He begins serving as Shemhazai's second-in-command after Azazel's retirement. He also serves as Odin's bodyguard along with Rossweisse.
  • Overprotective Dad: Due to some misunderstandings, he at first doesn't want that "breast-devouring Dragon" Issei anywhere near his daughter. Though he gets over this later on.
  • Papa Wolf: Despite their complicated relationship, he loves his daughter and will do anything to protect her, even if it means helping her defeat Loki.
  • Rebuilt Pedestal: Akeno's trust in Baraqiel is restored after Issei helps her reconcile with him.
  • Shipper on Deck: After clearing some misunderstandings, he ships his daughter with Issei. He later briefly backs out of this when Issei proposes to Rias, but relents after Issei's goal to Marry Them All.
  • Shock and Awe: He can blast enemies with his Holy Lightning, just like his daughter.
  • Token Good Teammate: He's one of the few good fallen angels, so much so that he was Happily Married to a human.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He was on the receiving end when Akeno lashes out on him for failing to rescue Shuri.



Sahariel is one of the scientists of Grigori.

  • Mad Scientist: As soon as Azazel signed the papers to allow Sahariel to make his experiments, he drags Gasper with him.



One of the high ranking fallen angels who is in charge of the business department.



Penemue is the chief secretary of the Grigori fallen angel institute.



Armaros is one the seven founders of the Grigori fallen angel faction. He's in charge of training and anti-magic research

  • The Berserker: His method of countering magic counts. Bonus points in that he has the typical barbarian look and attitude, complete with the beard, cape, axe, and shield.
  • Large Ham: He is so fascinated with Tokusatsu TV programs that he gives this whenever he can.
  • Training from Hell: Basically what his department in the Grigori gives to Sacred Gear possessors. Being hit with a gigantic iron ball, drowned while being tied with weights... you name it. Saji and Issei learned it the hard way.

Samael is the angel who convinced Adam and Eve to eat the Forbidden Fruit in the Garden of Eden. He was cursed by God's hatred of dragons and snakes.
  • The Dragonslayer: He is considered the most potent example in the series. His curse gives Ophis a massive Nerf, would presumably work on Great Red as well, instantly puts Vali out of action, and outright kills Issei. He gets better.
  • The Dreaded: To dragons. Ddraig is terrified when he shows up.
  • Flat Character: He's more of a weapon than an actual character.
  • Man of Kryptonite: He is an abject threat to all Dragons, even the Dragons Gods Ophis and Great Red. Rizevim laments that he couldn't use Samael on Great Red without running the risk of wiping out his own Evil Dragon army.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: He has the upper body of a Fallen Angel, and the lower body of an Eastern Dragon.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His moniker, the Dragon Eater, will cause any Dragon to freeze in shock.
  • The Power of Hate: His curse results from the Biblical God's hatred of snakes and dragons.
  • Red Baron: He's known as the Dragon Eater.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He is coated with sealing tools, on top of being crucified.
