Angel Sanctuary >> Characters
A sixteen year old highschool boy, who also happens to be the reincarnation
of the Organic Angel Alexiel. He's in love with his sister and his best friend
Mudou Sarah: (human)
Setsuna's sister, who's in love with him. In actuality she's his guardian angel and the reincarnation of Jibril. She was killed protecting Setsuna but resurrected eventually by Raphael.
Kira Sakuya: (human)
Setsuna's classmate, who is immortal and always follows Alexiel's incarnations. He took over the body of a seven year old after a car crash, and making a deal with the real Sakuya. He's immortal due to the fact that Rociel's blood was splashed on him, also before he was the soul in Alexiel's sword (Nanatsuya) he was Lucifer. And returns to being him after Kira Sakuya's body dies.
Kurai is one of the two survivors of the Gehenna kingdom. She's from the race of evils who are considered enimies to angesl and to demons (because they refused to worship Lucifer, because they worshipped the dragon gods). Kurai having been rescued by Alexiel, has a great deal of respect for her and as a result steal her body.
Kurai's transvestite cousin, or thought to be. The other survivor from the royal line of the Gehenna kingdom. He also worked with Kurai to steal the body of Alexiel and is often seen with her. (Sorry, it's just that I can't say too much about him with spoiling something!)
The Organic Angel, and Rociel's twin. Long ago she rebelled against god and fought against Rociel. Not being able to kill him she sealed him, and as a punishment for doing so her soul and body were seperated.
The Inorganic Angel, who gains in control of heaven. He's the antagonist, and I like him. Yes, I do.
He's the ruler of hell and was originally intended to Demon Lord while still in heaven. He was sealed into Nanatsusaya, was reincarnated into Kira Sakuya, and when he died he was later brought back (as Lucifer, of course) by Rociel.
Ruler of heaven, thought to be asleep. But everyone hates him for screwing up their lives.
Nantsusaya (alexiel's sword):
She's empty really, at least I think so. We only see Nanatsusaya once in the series, when she saves Setsuna.
Saiki Ruri (human):
She's the reincarnate of Lapis Lazult, who was a former angel. She was an original candidate of the Angel Sanctuary project, and was possessed by Rociel for a while in the begining.
Mr. Kira (human):
The real Kira Sakuya's father, who loved his son very deeply and continues to love him even after Kira intentionally tries to make him hate his son. So that it would be easier for him when Kira's body died.
Kira Sakuya (human):
The *real* one. He's always reffered to as Sakuya. He died in an accident when he was seven (?) and Nanatsusaya made a deal with him so he could borrow the body. He's still there in the mind of Kira though. He made a deal with Kira that he would lend him his body, but he wanted Kira to read books because Sakuya always loved reading. And also that he should try and get Mr Kira to hate him, so he wouldn't be sad when he died.
Mrs. Modou (human):
Setsuna and Sara's mother. She is divorced and has always hated Setsuna and wanted to keep him away from Sara.
Katou is a supposed friend of Kira's and winds up being killed by Alexiel. While Setsuna was in Hades, he found Katou and after he was saved, became an agent of Alexiel.
Another one in Kira's little gang. He dies when attempting to kill Setsuna, thanks to Rociel. (The pill, again.)
Adam Kadamon (angel - Holy Hermit):
Second only to god, he is the only one who now knows ancient black and white magic, and it is said that Alexiel and Rociel were born from his blood.
Metatron (angel - seraphim):
The seraphim of heaven, who should be ruling heaven, but since Sevotharte seems to take advantage of the fact he's a child, he doesn't. He was part of an experiment to make another type of 'alexiel and rociel' set, but something went wrong. Hist twin is Sandalphon.
Sandalphon (angel - Metatron's twin):
This angel doesn't have a body, so he seems to reside in Metatron's mind, or part of it at least. He desperately wants a body and tries several times to find one.
Sevotharte (angel - seraphim):
Heaven's ruler, as he took over after Rociel was sealed. He uses Metatron to insure his state of authority. (sorry, the rest is spoilers ^^)
Leviathan (fallen angel - now a Satan):
A fallen angel now a Satan. He's currently "Envy" who was once known as the Dragon King of the Sea.
Beezlebub (fall angel - now a Satan):
Beezlebub who was once a great seraphim, now a fallen angel and a Satan. Over "Gluttony", Lord of the Flies. (makes me think of the book!)
Jibrill (angel - cherubim, former Great Cherubim):
She's an angel who was once outspoken and ranked high in power but was put in a deep sleep. She reincarnates (or at least her soul does) into Sara, so that Setsuna gets a guardian angel.
Dubbiel (angel - Great Cherubim):
He took Jibrill's spot in heaven, and acted as the Great Cherubim. He works under Sevotharte but later sides with Rociel.
Katan (angel - cherubim):
At one time Katan was without a body, and nameless, Rociel gave him a body and a name. Katan is very loyal and dedicated to Rociel, because of his memories of what Rociel was.
Asmodeus (fallen angel - now a Satan):
"Lust", with the title Prince of Judgement, he has three heads. And for some reason, wants to be a traitor to Lucifer.
Astaroth (fallen angel - now a Satan):
"SLoth", Marquis of Fear. He's divided into two parts, which is split with his sister, Astarte. He's very cruel, and enjoys watching people suffer until they die as a result of getting lost in his labyrinth. He and his sister were also an experiment by god.
Zaphkiel (fallen angel):
He was blinded by the holy hermit while attempting suicide. If any of you remember, he was the blind priest that appeared to Setsuna early, early, in the story. He heads up the rebellion 'Anima Mundi', but is discovered.
Madhatter/Belial (fallen angel - now a Satan):
Was once a virtue but is now the Satan of "Pride". She's really genderless, but is still regarded as a female. While still in heaven she slept with a lot of angels, but followed Lucifer down to hell. Her real name is Belial, but doesn't let anyone other than Lucifer call her that.
Raphael (angel - virtue *cough*):
Raphael is a doctor (although he's more interested in women and seducing them than he is healing), he's also the elemental wind angel. He helps Sara throughout the series in various ways.
He's the elemental angel of fire. He's very volatile and also is the commander of the angel military.
Elemental angel of earth and death, now residing in Hades after banishing himself from heaven. He slit his own throat in remorse of banishing Alexiel, because he loved her. Although, things do get fixed ^^
Zaphkiel's assistant. Later found to be his Anael's son.
Barbiel (angel - powers):
She's a woman that Raphael loved, she was latter kidnapped to help Raphael decide to make Jibrill/Sara shut up in the trial.
Sariel (angel - principality):
She seems to posess the ability to make those with strong minds kill those with weaker minds.
Zaphkiel's lover who was working on the project of metatron and sandalphon but was set up to be killed by Sevotharte.
Mammon (fallen angel - now a Satan):
"Avarice", Golden Count.
An angel who was once a candidate for Archangel, she was infatuated with Rociel and would do anything for him. He set her up to kill Sara, but even after warnings from others she didn't understand what it meant. Later, after dying, her sould is put into "Doll" by Uriel. She has no memories of her past.
A girl who served Sara. She's cute but rather dumb.
The ruler of Hades.
Originally very hostile towards Setsuna, but becomes loyal to him in the end.
Voice's twin sister. After Voice died, she spent her remaining time finding her killer.
Barbalo (former servant angel - now a Satan):
Lucifer's wife and supposedly had 9 children by him, but in truth they were all bastard children.
Shateiel (I angel):
Raziel's love. Well, that might not be the correct term, but they had some sort of affection for eachother. She was leader of the I children in the projects area of heaven. She became a fairly close friend to Raziel but then the government killed all the I children.
Teiaiel (fallen angel):
Her one speech was just as touching as it was disturbing. She was locked up and there's a story to how she became marked as a fallen angel but you should read it instead. She made a pact with Katan to never kill again, but it was broken.
Princes Abaddon (demon):
The prince of hell and supposed son of Barbelo and Lucifer. He has 'medusa' skill, if anyone looks at him they die. But he's a sweet creature and when Kurai met him, he helped her.
Nydd Hogg (fallen angel? i'm not sure):
He's the dragon that guards Uchuuju, before Setsuna leaves, he gives him a scale and asks him to find an angel he's been in love with, named Laila. Even though it was her fault he died, she's still in his memory.
Laila (angel): *spoiler warning!*
The true identity of Sevathorte. Some men took advantage of her and she went to Sandalphon to make her into a different person, so she becomes Sevathorte.
Riuet (angel): *spoiler warning!*
A member of the rebels (who is a kid) he's excessively interested in Katou's body and he's a good mechanic. He helps Setsuna for a price. *cough* Setsuna sold Katou to him.
Wu-ming Samurai (human): (and no, his name is not Wu Ming, it simply means the one with no name :o I used it for fun) *semi-spoiler*
A poor man who fell in love with Alexiel's reincarnation they ran away together but he was killed. Nanatsusaya agreed to grant him one wish in exchange for use of his body. While possessed he raped and killed the prostitue.
Wu-ming Prostitue (human): (same thing, her name isn't Wu-Ming) *semi-spoiler*
She was the prostitute mentioned in the above section, because her death had not been in the mind of heaven, it broke the curse of having to die awfully in every incarnation.
