Fierce and valiant, the Archangel Michael has spent his life as The Sword of God, ardently executing Father’s orders in whatever form required. A warrior ruled by logic, Michael concluded that the protection of mankind—God’s beloved creation—would result in His return. So convinced of his reasoning, he waged war on his own brother, Gabriel, who sought to annihilate humanity.
Michael acts as an unflinching champion of God. His conviction, though embedded in faith, has often manifested in extreme violence, as demonstrated during the Battle of Jericho. One of the many cities within the region of Canaan, Jericho was a land promised to the Israelites by God himself. But before their liberation, the Chosen People were enslaved by the inhabitants of Jericho, who had begun to worship false idols. God sent Michael, his trusted Sword, who “[…] utterly destroyed everything in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of [his] sword… [He] burned the city with fire, and all that was in it.” Obediently heeding Father’s orders, Michael surrounded the city and drove the pagans to madness, tearing down the walls and annihilating everything in sight, all in the name of God.
An unspeakably loyal soldier who values duty above all, there is no distance too great, nor challenge too difficult to keep Michael from completing his mission.
