Characters

Michael (Faith) (CV: Yumi Uchiyama)
The leader of the angels and the rival of Lucifer, Michael is a passionate soul with an unwavering loyalty to God. Although she has a lot of latent power, she is not very strong. She is a sore loser, but she cares about her team’s well-being. She loves egg dishes, especially omelets, and makes them all the time.

Uriel (Patience) (CV: Asami Seto)
Heaven’s intelligence officer, Uriel has top-notch physical abilities and wields fire. She is very level-headed and often says that enduring patiently is an agent’s duty. Although she looks like a stoic person who can bear with everything, in reality, she has little patience, and she only puts up with things.

Sariel (Kindness) (CV: Sakura Nakamura)
A beautiful angel with a gentle smile on her lips, Sariel should be overseeing humans to make sure they don’t commit any sins, but she is just as lenient on them as she is on herself. Although she is the oldest of the angels, she is not very reliable due to her spontaneous nature.

Sandalphon (Diligence) (CV: Shiori Izawa)
Metatron’s older sister, Sandalphon is loved by her fellow angels for her hard work and self-sacrifice. Wanting to become a high-ranking angel for her sister’s sake, she pumps out inventions one after another, but since she’s very pessimistic. they often don’t work out.

Metatron (Charity) (CV: Ari Ozawa)
A kind (and clumsy) angel who can’t refuse a request, Metatron is Sandalphon’s younger sister and a nurse. She’s not the smartest tool in the shed, which often puts her in bad situations, causing her sister to worry about her. Her personality drastically changes when she holds a syringe, as she turns into a super sadist. She’s a maniac healer who will do everything to nurse her patients back to health.

Raphael (Temperance) (CV: Lynn)
Stylish with a gorgeous figure, Raphael is a loud, cheerful mood-maker who likes gyaru culture. She loves eating delicious things, but since dieting is her hobby, she prefers to indulge in low-calorie foods. She is especially close with Michael. With her openness and rich knowledge, Raphael is the most dependable of the angels.

Gabriel (Chastity) (CV: Hiyori Nitta)
The self-alleged head of the Angelic Morals Committee, Gabriel supervises angels and humans to make sure they don’t do anything immoral. Unfortunately, she’s not very convincing as her outfit is quite revealing, but it’s her uniform, what can an angel do? She’s very positive and always full of ungrounded self-confidence.
