Angels (エンジェル) are magical beings that are summoned from another realm and a race players could choose to be. Many people believe that they are God's envoys, especially the people of the Slane Theocracy.
In the New World, humans, especially those from the Slane Theocracy, view Angels as envoys of the divine, though this topic is the subject of much debate and source of conflict between human nations. However, they are regarded as incredibly powerful magical beings that can lay waste to the land.

All angels have the ability to fly and use divine powers. Their level of power depends on their class.
Similar to demons, an angel's name hold great significance. Such as if an angel wants to show up in the New World, it has to engrave its name into that world. Therefore, they can’t use false names. Experiments show that using a false name might even cause them to disappear on the spot.
