Term: Azrael

(“Whom God Helps”) Also Azriel. Azrael lives in the third heaven and has the monumental task of recording everybody’s names when they are born, and erasing them again when they die. In Jewish and Islamic lore he is considered the angel of death. This is probably because of his interest in reincarnation. He can be called upon when exploring past lives, or when investigating psychic topics.
