Gambled Omens Notes

* Changed his name to Dantalion after he fell (he cannot remember his old name, to hear it causes painful static)
* His animal is a rabbit! He’s got red rabbit eyes (he doesn’t cover them up but instead makes people who ask about them feel very ashamed for bringing up is eye condition) and a little rabbit tail, which he does cover up with trench-coats. Dantalion’s also got a rabbit tattoo on the inside of his left wrist, and he frequently pulls rabbits out of hats (he actually inspired the trick)
* Wanted to munch on an apple but couldn’t reach it (as a rabbit) so asked Eve for some help since she was around. How was he to know she’d get one for herself as well?
* Aside from his angelic name, Dantalion remembers everything about heaven, including Raphael
* He was heartbroken when he realised Raphael didn’t remember him
* Since he fell when he was a cherubim, he’s a lot more powerful
* Resents Gabriel and the other archangels a LOT, is disillusioned as to how awful heaven can be
* Wants to be with Raphael and to embrace him and everything he offers but is scared of causing him to fall and that he’d be taking advantage of him since he remembers
* He indulges himself more in things he enjoys since he doesn’t have to answer to heaven
* Actually gets on well with Beelzebub (at least until the apocalypse)
* In modern day times he doesn’t own a bookstore, he owns a London manor that he stores all his books in (why bother pretending to want to sell them without heaven around?)
* Still really outdated
* Human name is Daniel T. Lion
* What does the T stand for, you ask? Well, it was just a T for a few decades but eventually he had to sign an offical documents he had to make a middle name. Thankfully, he’d had tiramisu for lunch, so that made picking a middle name easy

* Has a staff of healing, the classic golden twin snake one. He can turn it into a single snake earring he wears in his right ear
* Since the cherubim who was meant to guard the Eastern Gate of Eden was mysteriously absent, someone else had to take up the sword and do it. And Raphael put his hand up for it. While the other archangels weren’t keen on him getting his hands on his forgotten lover’s weapon, they didn’t want him asking why he couldn’t go down, so eventually caved. They were actually relieved he got rid of it
* His eyes are green and normal, but this lad loves his glasses! He wears some stylish pink ones, but owns a collection of other ones for other occasions that he never wears. Raphael doesn’t know why, he just really likes him those rose-tinged glasses
* Was shocked when Dantalion, a DEMON, put his wing over him at the first rain. Like bruh what
* His memories of Aziraphale were taken, and his memories of Lucifer edited. He doesn’t know he ever questioned so he never does
* You thought Crowley was pining hard? Haha that’s cute. Raphael’s been in love since that black wing went over his head, and he can sense the waves of love pouring off Dantalion every goddamn second they’re together. He’s tried to admit his feelings many times, has been courting his rabbit for millenia, and doesn’t understand why Dantalion won’t let them be more.
* Aw fuck yeah he’s still got the Bentley! It’s painted white though, and miraculously never has a speck of dirt on it (still has the James Bond bullet joke sticker, too)
* Raphael runs a record store, and is constantly buying and selling music and movies as his tastes change. He loves recommending musicians and shows to customers. Try to touch his signed copies of Queen and you’ll find everyone you dislike or hate has amazing luck!
* He gets on well with the other archangels, especially Gabriel! It’s a typical sibling dynamic, though Raphael is often treated as the immature sibling due to his love of humans and earth. He assumes the reason the others get awkward when the subject of falling (rarely) comes up is because of Lucifer, and he’s partially right
* Raphael is very nice and kind to his plants, and they flourish! And when one doesn’t grow well, that’s okay! He just makes sure it knows how much happier he’d be if it did a better job, because really, you’re only holding yourself back by being so attached those humans—
* Yeah he still projects onto his plants
* Human name is Raphael J. Archer
* Now I bet you think the J stands for Janthony. It’s James! His middle name is actually very recent, he only got it in the 1960’s when a certain spy movie came out
