"May the archangels protect us."

Deckard Cain(src)

The Archangels of Wisdom, Justice, Hope, and Fate

Archangels are angels of elevated power and/or status.


"Like musical notes in a grand chorus, angels are the manifestation of the Arch’s intrinsic harmony. The purest expressions of this harmony were my brethren, the archangels."


All angels are manifestations of the Crystal Arch's instrinsic harmony. Archangels are the purest expression of this harmony.[1]

Visually, archangels appear with more wings and stand more powerful than their normal kin and have been seen to wear far more intricate and individualized armor.[2] Their armor is a manifestation of their own spirit.[3] The weapon of an archangel was the only means by which the Worldstone could be cloven.[4]

Archangels believe in fate, or destiny—the sense that all things are "written" and therefore knowable.[5]

Some archangels have been worshiped by mortals. Archangels who accept this worship also expect fear from their faithful, and threaten dire punishment if Man should consort with demons.[6]
