Archangels are chief angels of higher rank or with greater spiritual power than an ordinary angel. Visually, archangels appear similar to their normal kin, though have been seen to wear far more intricate and individualized armor.
Archangels believe in fate, or destiny—the sense that all things are "written" and therefore knowable.
