Angels and Demons are historical figures that appear through most of the major religions in the world. Throughout human history, in almost all the religious text or scriptures, there is mention of creatures that represent both good and evil. Where Angels are considered servants devoted to God, Demons are somewhat of a nuisance that represents everything that is wrong or bad in this universe.

Here are a few examples of the most common Angels and Demons in history that have had influence over humans.

Azarael


One of the most popular Archangels, Azarael is found in both Islamic scriptures and Christian-Judaist beliefs. Most popularly known as the Angel of Death, his main responsibility is to guide souls after they move on from their lives in this world onto the next. In one description, it has been claimed the has four faces, four thousand wings and his whole body consists of tongues and eyes corresponding to the number of people on earth. He will also be the last to die.

Uriel


Also, an Archangel, regarded as the Angel of Repentance. Most commonly known for rescuing Jesus’s cousin, John the Baptist from the Massacre of the Innocents. Scriptures depict him to be pitiless and as the angel who ‘watches over thunder and terror’. He is also known to have buried Adam and Abel in Eden.

Incubus


An Incubus is a demon whose life force depends on having sexual relations with humans. Its female counterpart is called a Succubus. These demons prey on humans and indulge in sexual activity with them, especially in front of the woman’s husband. There have been various texts that state that a succubus has intercourse with a man in order to collect sperm to impregnate women as an Incubus.

Gabriel


Gabriel has been mentioned in Christianity and Islam both. He is reported to be one of the Archangels and is considered a Messenger of God. He was the one who revealed the Quran to Muhammad, the last of the prophets in Islamic culture (referred to as Jibril). In Judaism, Gabriel is believed to be the interpreter of Daniel’s visions as well.

Babalon


Babalon represents the female sexual impulse and the liberated woman in the simplest of terms. In the book of Thoth, it is described that “she rides astride the Beast; in her left hand she holds the reins, representing the passion which unites them. To her right, she holds aloft the cup, the Holy Grail aflame with love and death. In this cup are mingled the elements of the sacrament of the Aeon.”

Metatron


Mainly associated with Judaism, Metatron is reported in many cases to be the scribe of God, writing down what God says. As an angel, he is known to have a good sense of humor and is considered to be a little mischievous at times. In Judaism, he is said to have overlooked the exodus of Israeli people out of Egypt.

Moroni


Mainly associated with Mormonist culture and beliefs. He is said to be the angel who visited Joseph Smith in the 1820s and was the keeper of golden plates upon which the Book of Mormon was written. He is also known to have taken the plates to heaven with him once the translation was finished by Smith.

Seraphim


These creatures are said to be the first of God’s creations in Judo-Christian beliefs and are often described as ‘Burning Angels’ which deems them to be on fire with love for God. They belong to the highest order of angels as they guard God’s throne. They were reportedly created so that God could know Himself through their experiences and existence.

Choronzon


This is considered as a spirit of dissolution. Everything that happens around a Choronzon will begin to decay. Also known to turn people insane, a Choronzon is a final obstacle that is left to a magician and his/her ascension. Without beating or overcoming a Choronzon, a mage will fail.

Lucifer


Perhaps the most famous of all Angels is Lucifer, popularly known as either Satan or the Devil. He is referred to as the Angel who fell from Heaven, thus being referred to as Lucifer. Many faiths and popular beliefs also label him as the Price of Hell. Lucifer is the ultimate representation of evil in the world as he defied God himself, which resulted in him being cast out.
