Gods and Demons Wiki

Thunderer, we call him, Stormbringer. My older brother has this strange power that allows him to infuse his ohr into divine lightning, allowing him to strike down demons with what can only be described as dozens of angelic nukes at a time.

Barachiel is one of the Seven Archangels and the "Lightning of God".


Archangel Barachiel is the Archangel of Lightning, Thunder and Blessings. He is also the chief of the guardian angels and it is written that Barachiel may be prayed to for all of the benefits which the guardian angel is thought to confer if one is not praying to the guardian angel directly, but as an intercession. He is also seen as the angel assigned by God to watch over converts (also called "adopted children of God") to assist them in their lives.

Barachiel is also seen to visit Earth on many occasions along with Sandalphon with or without God's express permission.


Barachiel's main appearance is very similar to and almost identical to that of Michael just with longer hair.

Barachiel appears as a older teenager of an average height with long dark brown hair, blue and gold eyes (Un-heterochromia), and a fair complexion. He is usually seen wearing a white hoodie covering a black shirt and an orange stripe along navy blue pants. He also is seen wearing a blue vest over a white shirt and brown pants. Unlike in the paintings and photos of Barachiel, his is not as muscular as he is thought to be however, he still possesses unimaginable strength. When Barachiel is in Heaven, he is seen wearing a silver armour like outfit, with his sword of lightning and staff, with the sword beings able to turn into a pen whenever he wants when on earth. Barachiel can even turn the pupils of his eyes a white blue in color and is mainly seen doing so when he is angered. Some other ways is something like thunderstorms world-wide with bolts of lightning striking down on people that are blowing the entire city to entire continent in the processes.


Barachiel is seen as an immensely friendly but cold angel who grudgingly follows Michael's, Metatron's, and God's orders. He is also seen to bear some respect towards Jesus Christ while it is only slightly. He is seen to deeply care and be extremely overprotective towards Uriel and Jophiel, as he loves them both deeply. Barachiel is seen to be very friendly and respectful towards Ophis, and has a similar way of describing people. They describe people in a sometimes rude and honest way. He is even more brutally honest to people that have been complete assholes towards him and/or someone he cares about. He also can’t stand when people enrage him just for the fun of it and when they talk bad about his siblings and God.

The only part of Barachiel that is remotely similar to that of the Michael and Raphael is that Barachiel's anger is as swift as Michael's and he doesn't tolerate insubordination and people who don't show him respect. He keeps his promises that he makes with humans, as he doesn't outright hate them but sees them as prideful, arrogant, and greedy beings created by his father God. He protects the humans that he does care for and if anyone was to ever attack, rape, insult, bully, etc they would face his wrath and be done for, as they would be completely obliterated with no trace of them left.

Barachiel's anger is extremely merciless towards evil, wicked, filthy, scum, and unhonorable people, as shown when Barachiel outright stated that he will show no mercy to anyone who shows disturbing, inappropriate, lewd, sexual or blasphemous acts just to obtained their selfish and worthless needs. His anger is also quick, yet fierce and frightening, while maintaining his calm and level-headed composure. He visibly shows a strong disdain and hate towards malevolent people, especially those who tend to manipulates others for their own selfish gains. He also hates when people falsely use "justice" to carry out hypocritical unjustified acts themselves.
