Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon vol. 081 – Raphael
Atlus continues on with its Shin Megami Tensei V demon showcase series, and has now put out a trailer for Raphael. This is another creature that has been around since the series’ earliest days.
Here’s a bit of information covering Raphael’s history, courtesy of the Megami Tensei Wiki:
Raphael, or Raphaela, is one of the four main seraphim or archangels of God within the hierarchy of angels from Christian and Islamic mythology, His name means “It is God that heals.” Not all branches of these religions consider the identification of Raphael to be canonical.
He is said to be the guardian of the Tree of Life, opposite the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. He also expounds to Adam the War in Heaven in which Lucifer and the Fallen angels fell, and the creation of the Earth. Raphael first appears disguised in human form as the travelling companion of Tobit’s son Tobiah, calling himself “Azarias the son of the great Ananias”.
Check out the new Shin Megami Tensei V video showing off Raphael below.
Shin Megami Tensei V will be out for Switch on November 12. You can keep track of all demon showcase videos here. Also, for those that missed it, we have a bunch of details and screenshots for the game here.
