Who invited the Devil to our gathering of angels?
— Zadkiel to Lucifer Morningstar
in "Nothing Lasts Forever"

Zadkiel is an Angel and one of Lucifer Morningstar's siblings. He is known as the Angel of Righteousness and possesses a staff that is made from the Tree of Life. After God announced his retirement, Zadkiel sided with Michael in his attempt to replace their Father over Lucifer. However, after learning that Lucifer wanted the throne to prove himself worthy of Chloe Decker, Zadkiel had a change of heart and sided with him, believing it was the best reason. After Lucifer won the final battle against Michael and proved himself worthy as the new Sovereign of Heaven, Zadkiel bent a knee with the others in recognizing Lucifer as the new God.




Zadkiel was one of the many Angels born to God and Goddess[1], but his special status as the Angel of Righteousness puts him in ranks similar to that of Lucifer Morningstar, Michael, Azrael, and Amenadiel.[2] At some point, he received the last piece of the Tree of Life and turned it into a staff that he carried around at all times.[3]

God's Retirement Party[]

Zadkiel and Lucifer Morningstar confront each other.

After God announced his retirement, he brought Zadkiel and his siblings to Earth for a retirement barbeque. When Lucifer and Amenadiel arrived, Lucifer is immediately confronted by Zadkiel, questioning why the Devil was present at a gathering full of Angels. Despite Lucifer trying to make small talk with his brother, Zadkiel disrespectfully spit on the ground in front of him. This causes Lucifer to expose his Devil eyes, but before the situation leads to potential conflict, Amenadiel persuades Lucifer to deescalate.

Zadkiel returned to the barbeque, but gathered around their Father with the rest of the Angels in asking who will take his place. When Remiel and the others assumed Amenadiel would be taking God's place, Zadkiel was in support of that notion, but when Lucifer publicly expressed his intentions of replacing God, Zadkiel, along with the others, immediately disagreed with the idea of their fallen brother taking their Father's place.

Following Amenadiel's statement of support for their brother, Zadkiel expressed his opposition, believing there were other Angels more qualified than Lucifer, but the latter pointed out that his time ruling Hell gave him the experience of ruling. Zadkiel directly states to God that his successor is his choice, urging him not to pick Lucifer, causing an argument to break out, only for God to silence them, assuring that them he will choose his replacement after his retirement plan is sorted.[4]

Battle for Supremacy[]

Hearing Lucifer Out[]

With God retiring to Goddess' universe for eternity, he left it to his children to decide who will succeed him; it comes down to Lucifer and Michael. Lucifer, however, must garner the support of several swing vote Angels in order to strengthen his claim over succeeding God, which included Zadkiel.

He personally invited Zadkiel to his penthouse in Lux and admitted that he was wrong. After being offered a drink, Zadkiel listened to him confess that his rebellion was ill-conceived because he did it out of anger towards their Father and how he now knows how important of a job it is to be the Sovereign of Heaven. Though, impressed by Lucifer's pitch, he still refused to support him, saying he was only there because Jophiel said that he bribed with "top shelf" whiskey, and, as an added bonus, to watch his brother grovel.

Zadkiel pounders who to vote for.

In a fit of rage, Lucifer revealed the true reason for wanting to be God; to prove himself worthy of Chloe Decker's love. Intrigued by Lucifer's reasoning, Zadkiel asks if this was the woman Father made for him as a gift, only for Lucifer to state that she was more than a gift and will succeed in becoming God no matter what to prove himself before storming out, leaving Zadkiel to pounder who to vote for.[2]

Casting the Votes[]

Zadkiel sides with Lucifer.

On the day of the election, Michael gathered the Angels in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Zadkiel and the others waited for Lucifer, Amenadiel, and Chloe to arrive so they could cast their votes. When Lucifer attempts to reveal the truth of wanting to be God, Zadkiel reveals it for him, and unlike the others, thought doing it for love was the best reason, and gave Lucifer his full support. This caused Raziel to follow suit, but no one else. Zadkiel was thanked by Lucifer for his efforts.

Zadkiel tries stalling Michael.

With the votes casted, Michael declared himself God, though much to Zadkiel's and the others' confusion, nothing happened. When they realized that the vote had to be unanimous, Michael threatened to kill all the opposing votes, but Zadkiel remained loyal, while Raziel returned to Michael's side. Waiting for Mazikeen to arrive with reinforcements, Zadkiel and Lucifer's team started singing and dancing U Can't Touch This as a distraction, though Michael stopped them, knowing they were stalling.

At that moment, Maze arrived with Eve and an army of Demons. With them now evenly matched, Lucifer and Michael opted to fight for the throne by themselves, but when it looked as though Lucifer was losing, Zadkiel tried to assist him, but Amenadiel stopped him, knowing that Lucifer had to win on his own. When Amenadiel threw Zadkiel's staff over to Lucifer to aide him, the Angel of Righteousness was not pleased that the last piece of the Tree of Life was being used for a lost cause. Chloe, however, assured him that they had Michael right where they wanted him.

Zadkiel and the others watched the fierce battle between the twins, where his staff ended up being broken in half by Michael using the Flaming Sword. The battle ended with Michael killing Chloe with a broken piece of Zadkiel's staff and Lucifer flying up to Heaven to save her. After Lucifer left, Zadkiel joined Amenadiel and Maze's Demon army in taking on Michael's Angel army.[3]

Accepting the New God[]

Zadkiel bows before Lucifer.

As the battle waged on, and it looked like Zadkiel and his allies were going to lose, they were halted by the mysterious ressurection of Lucifer and Zadkiel and the others went to see the outcome of Lucifer and Michael's battle. Lucifer ended up sparing Michael's life, and instead severed his wings with the Flaming Sword, granting him a second chance. With Lucifer defeating Michael, and proving himself, Zadkiel proudly bowed before his brother and accepted him as the new God along with the other Angels.[3]


It can be assumed that Zadkiel was one of the Angels who fought on God's side during Lucifer Morningstar's rebellion, due to his status as the Angel of Righteousness as well as his strong resentment towards Lucifer when they meet on Earth. At first he has a hostile and rude personality, especially towards Lucifer. However he does show to care about Lucifer as he not only made the time to listen out to Lucifer's request, and even joined him in his fight against Michael when he realized that Lucifer was only fighting for love, which he thought was the best reason one could have to be God.

Powers and Abilities[]

As an Angel, Zadkiel has their weaknesses including the Flaming Sword, demonic weapons, and other supernatural beings.

  • Demon Daggers Forged In Hell: Demon Daggers are able to lethally harm all angels; even if the metal is melted down and re-forged as bullets the properties would still be preserved as shown when Chloe Decker was able to quickly wound and incapacitate two Angels with a gun loaded with bullets forged from the daggers.
