Archangels are fierce. They're absolute. They're heaven's most terrifying weapon. The archangels (Michael, Lucifer, Raphael, and Gabriel) are four powerful, angelic beings created by God before other angels. They were imbued with immense power that far surpasses that of lesser angels, demons, and most other supernatural beings. Castiel describes them as "fierce and absolute." They appear to be the four angels that Anna described as having personally seen God, though this number is incorrect as Metatron has also been in His presence when writing the Word of God. In addition, the angel Joshua admits to speak with God and may have also seen him.
