Baraqiel is the current Vice Governor of the Fallen Angels as well as Grigori and is the father of Akeno Himejima. He is also the widower of Shuri Himejima and is best friends with Azazel and Shemhazai. He possesses a serious, rigid warrior-type personality, though he is also protective of his daughter. He did hate Issei at one point due to the misconception of Issei being "A Dragon that devours breasts", which implies that he is naïve when it comes to jokes, mainly taking things literally. He can also become a masochist at times. Baraqiel was one of the first Angels to descend from Heaven and become a Fallen Angel. In the past, Baraqiel was injured and was found by Shuri Himejima, who nursed him back to health. They eventually fell in love and gave birth to a daughter (Akeno). Shuri's family couldn't accept Baraqiel due to him being a Fallen Angel, which led to Shuri's death in his absence.
