Hester, 7.21 Reading Is Fundamental


It's difficult to distinguish between a "fallen" and a "rebellious" angel. Fallen angels are those that have defied Heaven's principles and laws, and leave the Host of Heaven permanently. They may be cast out or may leave on their own.

Rebellious angels are those that have questioned or disobeyed orders from their superiors, in particular Michael. They may have created a more personal and individualized agenda. These angels may experience a demotion from their original ranks in the angel hierarchy, and would then be placed in a lower angelic class. True rebellion, meaning outright disobedience, is considered an angelic "murder one" according to Anna. It is closely associated with falling, and can occur for a variety of reasons.

Fallen Angels

Lucifer was expelled from Heaven by God and eventually cast into a cage in the deepest part of Hell by Michael. His contempt for humanity and the creation of Lilith, the first demon, led to his fall. He was later killed by Dean Winchester while powered by the Apocalypse World Michael.

Tamiel a fallen Grigori.

The Grigori were a squad of elite angels sent to watch over humanity, but eventually they turned bad and were nearly completely wiped out. One surviving Grigori was Tamiel, who fed on human souls.

Anna Milton chose to relinquish her grace, and fell to Earth where she was reborn as a human. She had grown tired of her post and wanted to experience real emotion. Even after regaining her grace, she remained a fallen angel and on the run until she was captured and then later killed by Michael.

Castiel confessed in 4.07 It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester that he had trouble telling what was right and what was wrong. He was later placed under Uriel's command by his superiors for becoming too close with the Winchesters. When he tries to give Dean a warning in 4.20 The Rapture, he is forcibly returned to Heaven and punished severely. He obeys Heaven for a while, but becomes a rebel when he banishes Zachariah and takes Dean Winchester to stop Sam from killing Lilith. He is then cut off from Heaven and gradually loses his powers.

Castiel is eventually reinstated after the imprisonment of Lucifer and Michael with even greater power, but his subsequent partnership with Crowley, his brief reign as the ruler of Heaven, and the insanity resulting from his efforts to help Sam caused the angel Hester to describe him as "fallen in every way" and he was classed as a fallen angel, though he still retained his angelic powers. As such, he was able to give his blood to Sam and Dean to create a weapon against the Leviathans when the blood of a fallen angel was required.

To create a spell in order to expel all the angels from Heaven, Metatron took Castiel's grace, and sent him to Earth as a human. Castiel later stole the grace of Theo and later Adina to become an angel again, but eventually regains his own grace and powers.

The angels lose their wings as they fall to Earth, and are no longer able to teleport. They do retain varying degrees of angelic power, although many (like the real Ezekiel) were killed when they fell. The archangels are the only ones that were unaffected by the spell and still bore their wings.

Rebellious Angels

Uriel supported the release of Lucifer, but this was either overlooked by or hidden from his superiors. He was eventually killed by Anna.

Gabriel poses as the Trickster god Loki.

Unable to stand Michael and Lucifer's constant quarreling, Gabriel skipped out of Heaven to escape the conflict. After saving Loki, Gabriel was placed into his own personal "witness protection", with Loki giving his appearance and identity to the archangel, in exchange for leaving his family affairs forever. Gabriel would spend a millennia on Earth embracing the hedonistic lifestyle of a trickster god and soon comes to acknowledge that humans are better than the angels. He was killed by the Apocalypse World version of Michael.

Balthazar was another voluntary exile, who stole weapons from Heaven when he left. He hid on Earth, and like, Gabriel, embraced a hedonistic lifestyle, but eventually rejoined the angels for a time to fight with Castiel against Raphael. Castiel eventually killed him after discovering he betrayed him to the Winchesters.

Metatron was the Scribe of God. Despite being believed by many to be an archangel, he was in actuality just a regular angel from the secretarial pool assigned by God to take down the Word before he left Heaven. After learning of the archangels' plans to take over the universe themselves, Metatron willingly exiled himself from Heaven, cutting himself off so completely that he was unaware of the archangels' fates and even who the Winchesters were. Hiding as a protector of the Two Rivers Native American tribe, he gives them longevity in exchange for stories and books. The Winchesters eventually locate him and convince him to help which he starts doing by rescuing Kevin Tran from Crowley and revealing the third task to close the Gates of Hell.

Ion was an angel that betrayed Naomi to Crowley both for a price, as well as because of his disillusioned with Naomi's plans for Heaven. Ion aided Crowley in capturing Castiel and getting the angel tablet, but was killed by Castiel when he was left alone to guard him.

Anael is a low-level functionary who's sole purpose in Heaven was to push a button and allow souls to enter. After the Fall, she became a faith healer going by the alias Sister Jo. Anael aided Lucifer by allowing him to feed off her grace and stood by his side when he briefly took control of Heaven, but retreated back to Earth when she discovered that Lucifer couldn't actually help the other angels.
