"Raphael acts calmly when interacting with others, but it is said that when he's holding a spear, he can be even scarier than a demon. He respects Lucifer and Michael."

— Raphael's Introduction video

Raphael is an angel was first mentioned in Obey Me!'s Main Story in Lesson 44-3, and made his first proper appearance in Lesson 63-1. His first appearance in Nightbringer's Main Story was Lesson 17-17. He is often given tasks and errands by Michael, which he dutifully puts up with. He is considered a side character in both Obey Me! and Nightbringer, meaning that he is not currently included in either game's Intimacy system.

Appearance[edit]

Raphael has short, ash blond hair with layered bangs. He has beige skin, and his eyes are a gradient of royal blue and celeste blue, with a ring of amethyst purple around his pupils. It is implied that he has a form with wings, as in Lesson 44-7, it's mentioned that Mammon once tried selling pigeon feathers from the Human World by pretending that they came from Raphael.

Angel Look

Like Luke and Simeon, instead of wearing the standard RAD Uniform, Raphael wears his Celestial Realm clothes. The outfit consists of a tight-fitting, sleeveless black crop top with gold borders and diamond accents, under which appears to be a dark cerulean blue garment also having a gold border.

Over the black top is an equally sleeveless white jacket with gold trim and dark cerulean blue lining. Wrapped around the jacket's collar is a wide black trim layered under a gradient-colored celadon blue and golden yellow trim cut such that both the trim's fabric and the trim's negative space are shaped like the stylized spear shapes of spades. His lower arms and the back of his hands are covered by a skintight black fabric, over which is a pair of detached white cuffs with gold trim and wide openings.

His pants are black and white, with the front white section bordered in gold and having two sets of three gold diamonds. The lowest diamond of each set has an attached gold-colored tassel. He also has a hair accessory made of several connected gold diamonds, and the charm on his black choker necklace is made of four celadon blue diamonds arranged to form a larger diamond shape.

Personality[edit]

Raphael is less talkative than most, to the point that Luke commented in Lesson 65-14 that it's often difficult to understand what Raphael is thinking because he "doesn't talk much." He seems to prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, as in Lesson 67-17 — when MC was tasked with playing hide-and-seek — Lucifer suggested they might find Raphael by looking "somewhere quiet."

Though Raphael typically has a calm demeanor, for an angel, he is surprisingly quick to resort to violence, or at least threats of such. When Beelzebub started chewing on Luke's clothes in Lesson 67, Raphael responded by offering to rain spears down on Beelzebub. Raining down spears seems to be Raphael's default conflict resolution method, as alluded to in the chat The Laundry Machine 1. When Luke panics about their broken washing machine, Raphael rains spears down upon the machine to prevent it from overflowing.

Raphael has often been described by the seven brothers as being extremely strict. When the brothers still lived in the Celestial Realm, they often worried about saying the wrong thing and having Raphael overhear them. Raphael is generally a serious individual, who protested that he was "not a child" when tasked with playing hide-and-seek in Lesson 67. He also frequently declined the brothers' pleas to play with them in the past when they were still angels. Raphael is said not smile often, but on the rare occasions he does, he's said to have a lovely smile.

In Lesson 52-3, Lucifer mentioned that he thinks Raphael has a snarky attitude and is prone to harsh insults, and that he found Raphael unpleasant to be around because of that. In a later lesson, Beelzebub also described how Raphael used to chastise him for his inability to control himself. Despite Raphael's character introduction video stating he respects Michael, he is still quick to insult him during his first appearance in Lesson 63.

When MC asked Raphael about his cooking abilities in Lesson 71, Simeon described it as "something it's better not to know." In Lesson 71-16 Hard, it is revealed that his cooking isn't actually terrible, but with more complex recipes, Raphael is highly prone to creating chaos in the kitchen.

Raphael "can generally hold his liquor" according to Lucifer, but gets very sleepy when drunk, as seen in the Devilgram Raphael's Welcome, where he passed out mid-sentence after drinking a few bottles of Demonus.

Lucifer also states in the Devilgram Raphael's Welcome that Raphael has an eye for detail.

He tends to ignore nonverbal cues, frequently saying that a character "didn't say anything" when one's mood is inferred by facial expression or context clues. This seeming inability to read the room also appeared relating to Solomon's food in Happy Birthday! Dear Simeon '22, where he appeared clueless about the other characters' nervousness over Solomon borrowing cooking utensils. Raphael can also be very oblivious to his surroundings in general, having not noticed that his hands caught on fire in Lesson 68-11.

Preferences[edit]

Likes[edit]

  • One of Raphael's hobbies is sewing.
    • According to the Devilgram Raphael's Welcome, when the brothers lived in the Celestial Realm they would often tear their clothing when escaping Lucifer's punishments. Raphael would mend the rips and eventually began to enjoy sewing.
    • In Lesson 69-A, Raphael was quick to notice that MC's sleeve was damaged and mended it for them with great skill.
  • Raphael is a talented singer.
  • Raphael adores food with flavoring too strong for most people.
  • According to the chat An Appreciated Gift, Raphael was gifted a Zombie Iguana keychain from Luke, and this is where he keeps all his important keys.
  • Raphael is a big fan of Fangol, and in particular the "Steel Falcons" team. As mentioned in the chat Raphael Versus Luke!, after the Ultra Bowl completed, he frequently discussed the Falcons with Mammon and Beelzebub.

Dislikes[edit]

  • Raphael dislikes foods that look off-putting or unappetizing.
  • As he mentioned in the chat Tiny Devil Sighting 1, he may decide to smite someone with spears if he believes they are ignoring him.

Powers and Abilities[edit]

Exclamation mark.png This section needs more info!

Presumably Raphael doesn't carry around an arsenal of spears on his person, and yet he is known for "raining down spears" on anyone or anything that he feels warrants said action.(source?) This likely means that he is capable of using magic to create or summon multiple spears at will.

Raphael's angelic powers are so strong that they can influence magical potions he creates. During an applied magical potions class in Lesson 76-7 (OM), he attempted to make "nectar of Eve's apple" — a potion with the power to seduce anyone — but instead created a potion that "purified the heart." Drinking the potion caused Mammon to want to give away all his money.


Story[edit]

Background[edit]

Note: this section may include spoilers.

As mentioned by Luke in Lesson 17-1 (NB), Raphael is the youngest angel to ever earn the rank of Seraph.

Back when the seven brothers were angels, he frequently had an antagonistic relationship with them. In Lesson 44-3 (OM), a still angelic Asmodeus had snuck away to his first party, and had to hide from Raphael afterwards to avoid punishment. Mammon warned him that he'd seen Raphael looking for him, and "had his spear on him." This was his usual weapon, and Leviathan, Mammon, and Asmodeus have all testified that Raphael used to punish them by raining spears down upon them when they were angels.(source?)

In Lesson 67-9 (OM), Asmodeus mentioned that they would often ask Raphael to play games with them, but Raphael would always refuse, saying "if you have time to play, then you have time to pray." However, there were also times when he and at least some of the brothers would get along. Asmodeus also mentioned in Lesson 67-16 Hard (OM) that he and Belphegor used to beg Raphael to sing for them, which he often agreed to do.

Due to Raphael's stoic personality, when Belphegor was tasked with making Raphael smile in Lesson 67, his best efforts all failed. Instead, it was fond memories Raphael had of past days in the Celestial Realm, when Belphegor often used to fall asleep during meetings, that resulted in Raphael giving one of his rare smiles.

Raphael seems to care deeply about Simeon, and looks out for his safety. Before his proper introduction in the story, in Lesson 60-22, Raphael met up with Simeon in the Human World and referred to him as his brother. In Lesson 66-17, Raphael became enraged when a chimera attacked Simeon, and swiftly sought vengeance. He also went out of his way to ask Lucifer how Simeon was doing in the Devildom, and was pleased to hear that Simeon had been doing well.

Michael[edit]

Obey Me![edit]

Raphael works under Michael, attending his needs closely. In Lesson 65-2, Raphael takes offense if MC incorrectly guesses that he is Michael, and refers to the other angel as a "socially inept weirdo." However, it is expressed in his character introduction video that he respects Michael and is the only one to truly understand him.

According to Belphegor in Lesson 56-1, a large part of Raphael's sour attitude that the other brothers have complained about is due to the stress of attending Michael's needs, which tend to be difficult to fulfill with very little reward.
