Angels (天使, Tenshi?) are the absolute shield that protects the Spirits; its form, shape, and even its function, all reflect on the Spirit itself. Angels can take on many forms, from giant monsters to deadly swords and even instruments, all of which seem to display some special offensive power. They also have either an alternative form or a variety of abilities for different situations a Spirit may face.
From Phantom's surprise at Origami having Metatron when she still had the Sephira Crystal, angels are contained within Sephira Crystal. According to Nia, all Spirits, despite their memory loss, have an instinctive knowledge of how their angels work. For example, Origami was able to use Metatron masterfully, despite only being bonded with her Sephira Crystal moments before.
Lastly, the angels may possess a healing factor, as Kurumi and Tohka have been in battles leaving their Angels with critical damage. However, their Angels did not show the battle damage the next time they were summoned.
The Inverse Form counterpart of an Angel is called a Demon King.
