"But angels here? I mean... I have so many questions I want to ask them."
"Good luck with that, luv. They're real cagey types."
—Zed Martin and John Constantine[src]


An Angel is a winged celestial being, created by God. They are generally benevolent spirits that live in Heaven and are bound to keep the free will of humans intact, as part of a "plan". They also serve as God's messengers and soldiers against the demons of Hell. Angels can also be exiled/fall from Heaven, if their wings get damaged or if they make any indiscretions. The former makes them tangible and weak in the physical world and can also lead them to cease from existing if they stay in that state for too long. The latter condemns them to Hell, along with the rest of the demons, changing their white wings to black.[1]
