Herald (大天使, Daitenshi)?, also known as Seraph (セラフ, Serafu)? and Hallel (熾天使, Shitenshi)? is the demon race of high ranking angels in the Judeo-Christian lore with few exceptions from Zoroastrianism. In gameplay, they usually do well in both physical and magical areas but they are focused on Magic, especially of the Expel (Light) and Almighty elements.

The original naming of this race, "Seraph," is a misnomer due to the fact that except for Seraph itself, the rest of the demons included in this race are not of the rank of Seraph in any religious tradition. Most of the Judeo-Christian angels in this race are simply classified as "Archangel."
