Posted on May 21, 2024 by in Switch, Videos

With the release of Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance drawing ever closer, another Daily Demon video has been released by Atlus to showcase one of the demons that will be in the game. Volume 41 of the series focuses on Michael.

Michael is a demon of the Herald race, and is only available for fusion in Shin Megami Tensei V if you make certain choices during “The Seraph’s Return” side quest. Michael has appeared several times throughout both the Megami Tensei and Persona series, and the Megami Tensei Wiki has quite a bit of information about his origins:

Michael, also known as Mikail in Islam, is an archangel, one of the principal 50 angels in Christian lore, and one of the four main archangels of Abrahamic tradition.

In Christianity, he is viewed as the field commander of the Army of God and led it in the war against the devil and the fallen angels. He is also a saint and thus carries the title “St. Michael The Archangel.” He is mentioned by name in the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelations. In the book of Daniel, Michael appears as “one of the chief princes” who in Daniel’s vision comes to the angel Gabriel’s aid in their contest with the angel of Persia, and is also described there as the advocate of Israel and “great prince who stands up for the children of your people.” Michael’s status in the army of Heaven is seen as a Viceroy or an Archistrage as well, but he’s mostly seen as the commander of Heaven’s army.

In Hebrew, Michael means “who is like God.” However, it does not mean that one should confuse him with being like God, instead it implies that no one is like God. In this way, Michael is reinterpreted as a symbol of humility before God.

In Islam, Michael serves as one who delivered bounty and sustenance to all living things as commanded by God, in other words while God design’s and creates the souls of all things, it is the duty of Michael to deliver them to their rightful place. He is also listed in most sources as the archangel of all natural phenomenon and is indirectly responible for the change in seasons and the rain caused by his subordinates.
