An Angel is a winged warrior created by God. Throughout history, angels have acted as agents of fate; guardians of those deemed worthy by God and destroyers of those He deemed wicked. While immortal and powerful, angels are neither infallible nor omniscient; they can be deceived.
Within Heaven's monarchy, there are believed to be several ranks of angel; among the higher echelon being the seraphim and the archangels. Lucifer, also called the Devil or Satan, is believed to be either a seraph or an archangel. Michael and Gabriel are also named as archangels.
Two twin male angels were seen watching Tom Judge while he talked to Nick. They were later seen by Tilly Grimes and then by her friends while in their way to a picnic. While at the picnic a hole host of warrior angels descend and slaughtered both the demon hoards and the battalion of human soldiers, both of whom were sent to retrieve the Rapture. The angels then departed without a word.
Nick describes angels as cynical. Tilly once called them fascists due to their militarism. Angels do seem to view themselves as superior to humans.
