Seraphim are a higher class of angel, above normal angels such as Uriel and Joshua, but lower in status than archangels. Their exact role in Heaven is unclear. Akobel was sent to watch, observe and learn about humanity.

Physical Appearance[]

The name seraphim means "the burning ones." It is said that the charity of the seraphim burns like white heat in a flame. The seraphim have six wings; two covering their faces, two covering their genitals ("feet"), and two with which they fly.

Powers & Abilities[]

Being the mighiest angels in all creation, Seraphim are the strongest, highest of the angels. Michael, Gabriel, Castiel, Metatron, Raguel and Lucifer, the highest and mightiest angels in Heaven, are said to be among their order. Unlike normal angels, Seraphim are independent when cut off from Heaven and retain all of their powers, even on Earth or even if they travel to Hell.

  • Angelic Possession - A seraph requires a vessel to manifest physically on Earth. Like all angels, they must bear their consent.
  • Immortality - A seraph, like all angels, by nature, can't die by any natural means of death. They are impervious to bullets, knives, bombs, and any other conventional human ways of killing.
  • Superhuman Stamina - A seraph never tires or gets fatigued. A seraph does not require food, sleep, or oxygen.
  • Castiel fights with Leviathans in Purgatory

    Superhuman Strength - As a higher class of angel endowed with greater strength, seraphs are extremely strong. They can lift at least 1 ton. However, their strength is completely no match for an archangel or a Prince of Hell. Castiel was also strong enough to fight against two Leviathan even overpowering and hurting one when regular angels are easily overpowered and killed by them instantly. Castiel was able to rupture a stone wall just by touching it. A Seraphs strength is sufficient enough to challenge multiple regular angels.
  • Biokinesis - A seraph is able to cure a human turning into a monster.
  • Telepathy - Seraphim can read the minds of humans and even other lower angels.
  • Dream Walking - Castiel was able to enter Fred Jones' dream. He was even able to take Sam with him.
  • Pyrokinesis - A seraph can generate and manipulate fire.
  • Healing - A seraph can heal others from severe wounds. Castiel was able to regrow a cut off finger on a human and heal gunshot wounds with ease. However, some things are beyond their power to heal. However, as he started growing weaker.
  • Localization - A seraph is able to track and locate beings, although not if they are warded by Enochian sigils.
  • Resurrection - A seraph can bring back the dead.
  • Invisibility - Seraphs can turn themselves completely invisible to the naked eye of humans and even other supernatural creatures, so much so that they don't make a sound.
  • Smiting - As all angels, a seraph is able to burn out the eyes of humans, monsters, and demons, killing them.
  • Healing Factor - Like all angels, Seraphs can heal from injuries inflicted upon them. However, wounds caused by angelic weapons take longer to heal.
  • Reality Warping - Being the most powerful angels, the Seraphim have among the greatest form of reality warping, able to create things out of thin air.
  • Mental Manipulation - A seraph can manipulate, erase or restore a person's perceptions and memories of events.
  • Soul Reading/Channeling - Seraph has shown the ability to read a person's soul to check the marker of another angel had left there, see if there is a soul there and check the state of the soul. He has also displayed the ability to channel power from a human soul, though this had to be done very gingerly and could result in the death of the human if done wrong.
  • Power Negation - A seraph is capable of removing powers from empowered humans, however, it can leave them mentally damaged to do so and is very painful to the individual losing the power.

  • Apportation - A seraph could teleport a human or monster before they lost their wings.
  • Chronokinesis - A seraph can travel through time, with greater ease than lower angels, and they are also able to send others either forward or backwards through time, with the same ease. They can send others through time without having to travel with them as well. They can also bend (freezing and speeding up) the time.
  • Teleportation - A seraph can teleport from one place to another instantly.

Weaknesses[]

  • Primordial Entities - Death can kill a seraph, even when one was enhanced by millions of souls. God, the creator of all angels, can kill and resurrect them at will, as well as block their powers or upgrading their powers. The Darkness has easily killed angels and could even kill archangels like Lucifer as she easily tortured him and stopped his powers before he was saved. An Archangel can also easily kill seraphs.
  • Angel Blades - An angel blade is able to kill a seraph.
    • Angel-killing Bullets - A bullet made by melting one or more angel blades could seriously injure a seraph or kill them if they were shot fatally.
  • Angel Banishing Sigil - When activated, such a mark can temporarily banish a seraph. If the seraph is wounded, it might kill the seraph.
  • Eve - A being older than the angels themselves, Eve are able to kill, and prevent seraphs from using their abilities.
  • Leviathans - Being older than angels in general, Leviathans are able to possess, kill, and prevent seraphs from using their abilities. However, seraphs appear to match Leviathans (at least ordinary ones) in physical strength.
  • Common Angelic Weaknesses - A seraph is vulnerable against Holy Oil, Heaven's weapons, etc.
  • Lance of Michael - It fatally poisons any angel stabbed with it, including a seraph, as it was designed by Michael to kill his brother Lucifer, the second most powerful archangel.
  • The Shadow - The Shadow easily overpowered Castiel in The Empty and beat him down before resurrecting him. When invading Heaven, The Shadow nearly killed Castiel in their confrontation.
  • Deities
  • Magic - Seraphs are susceptible to the powers of magic.
  • Holy Fire - Holy fire can hold seraphim at bay and weaken them if they are burned with it.

Notes[]

  • In lore, Seraphs are a type of Angel that are known for continually worshiping and praising God, which they do day and night. Their form is burning and fiery and has six enormous feathered wings, two covering their face, and two covering their feet, and two with which they fly. Seraphs are claimed to be so powerful and holy, that any human that looks upon them in their true form will die. Unlike other angels in Christian lore, seraphs have the ability to purify sin, control and manipulate fire, light, and inflame human emotions and thoughts. Even inflame God's holy love on to a human as well. Along with the Cherubim (which have four faces - ox, lion, eagle and man - and four wings and also cow's feet) and Ophanim/Thrones (celestial wheels with inner wheels covered in eyes and sometimes wings), the Seraphim typically represent the highest sphere of Angels in Christian lore, and it should be noted that although 'Archangel' is the second to lowest rank, Satan/Lucifer has been named as a Cherub and a Chief Seraph in some texts. Judaism, by contrast, ranks Seraphim as fifth in the angelic hierarchy. The literature describes them as beings with six wings: two to cover their face with, two to cover their legs with and two to fly with.
