The Angel (天使, Tenshi?) is a recurring motif in the series. They often appear as a small child in a white gown with blond hair and a halo above the head, or a cherub, a chubby male child, usually nude and with a pair of wings.

They share a distinct similarity: they appear whenever someone uses the spells Raise and Arise. Angels are often associated with life and granting protection against death, but in some rare cases they can inflict harm on the player's characters if used by enemies to attack the party.

Bravely DefaultEdit

BD

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

An angel appeared to Lord DeRosso and Sage Yulyana, during their warring clash atop the Norende Heights 1,800 years before the present. The angel was actually a young woman, heavily wounded, beyond saving, and frequently slipping in and out of consciousness. She warned the two of many events to occur in the future, the most important being the arrival of an evil one who would deceive its allies into awakening the crystals.

Shortly before her passing, the angel also revealed to Lord DeRosso the way to defeat the true bringer of ruin, a role that he swore to keep secret until the time came. Although never revealed, it is strongly inferred that the angel was Agnès from an alternate Luxendarc, as Lord DeRosso and the Sage have remarked that the angel bore the wind vestal's face.

Spoilers end here.

EtymologyEdit

An angel is a non-physical entity or spirit found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God's tasks. The term "angel" has also been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. In art, angels are often depicted with bird-like wings on their back, a halo, robes and various forms of glowing light.
