Description

The gates of Heaven are closed shut; the realm of Hell consumed by flood. And in their wake, countless parallel worlds wither away, one after another. The surviving angels and demons gather at the city they believe to be their final chance at salvation: the floating purgatory of "Tokyo Babel".

Joined by humans, they embark on a pilgrimage across the seven layers of Babel, hoping to ascend Jacob's Ladder in an effort to re-open the gates of Heaven. Their journey would be an atonement toward the heavens.

And yet, their plans fall into ruin as a group of pilgrims -- their minds consumed by madness - set out to lord over the numerous layers of Tokyo Babel with the intention to wreak complete and utter havoc atop the floating purgatory.

Amidst this neverending impasse, a lone youth is saved from the ruins of his devastated world - Tendou Setsuna, a man denied human treatment since birth.

Joining his savior, Lilith - known as the Witch of the Night, he begins his journey across Tokyo Babel...

...yearning for an answer to a single question: Why he still possesses the will to keep on living.

Description

A sort of robot, android, or cyborg, if you will - in other words, a being far removed from humanity who, upon being summoned to the land of Tokyo Babel by Lilith, was given orders to help pave the way towards Heaven.

In addition to extraordinary combat prowess and reflexes, rivaling even that of angels and demons, the nanomachines circulating in his bloodstream lend him rapid regenerative abilities. ...He is an apocryphal monster who, though a man in nature, was forced to renounce his humanity.

Rather than labeling his emotional landscape as scarce, it would be more fitting to say that his rusted heart is merely in need of a bit of oiling - after all, he had never once had to rely on feelings since his birth.

Description

A man of valor and heroism, as well as the first human ever created... though not quite the same Adam the world at large knows. He was re-imagined by the angels for the purpose of helping them turn the tide of battle at Tokyo Babel.

His inability to read the mood is beyond compare, while his drought of emotions exceeds even that of Setsuna. To him, feelings are a redundant element in achieving his goal ? as such, he lacks any and all kinds of emotions. And yet, one can find an exception to everything in life: for instance, goals achieved through disaffectionate methods might hold little meaning for a being inevitably endowed with feelings from birth.

Adam is the sole person in Tokyo Babel whom Setsuna regards with rejection and contempt.

Description

The so-called "Crowned Prince of Hell", as well as the founder of Tokyo Babel and Pandora.

As the current highest-ranking official at Pandora, he has taken up residence at the principal's office. Possibly owing to his origins being related to the goddess Ishtar, he emanates a certain aura of androgyny. With no more archdemons to oppose him, he now rules as the de facto leader of Pandora, though one cannot help but question the point of reigning over a ruined world. Still, he most likely gets a genuine kick out of the situation.

Description

Adam's wife and the original woman.

Ever polite and gentle in her demeanor, Eve's timid nature nonetheless leads to her merely following Adam's instructions on countless occasions. She is easily influenced by others, though this in itself is something she often willingly allows.

Eve has resigned herself to her position - hopelessly so -, believing that going with the tide is still favorable to merely stopping in place. The very fact she is now at Tokyo Babel is also but the result of that mindset, though not even Eve herself could've predicted being reunited with Adam at this city.

Voiced byItou Kanae

Description

Summoned for a role of a victim by the Master of Tokyo Babel's first layer. Setsuna rescues her from the pangs of death.

Lacking memories since her arrival at the floating city, with no idea of who she should turn to or where she should go, Sorami ends up joining forces with Setsuna. She displays naivete of staggering proportions.

The fact that she swiftly and easily accepts the existence of angels, demons, as well as the reality of her amnesia and that of an impending world-wide cataclysm stands testament to a considerable amount of backbone on her part. ...No rigid beliefs tie her down, which, in turn, enables her to be quite flexible and open-minded in dealing with people from all walks of life.

In better times, she could've had the world under her heel as a superstar idol... or so Lilith asserts.

Description

A demon also known as the Witch of the Night.

The first woman to ever be created ? preceding even Eve herself - and the first wife to Adam, though she eventually fled from this role. Lilith then lingered within the realms of Hell and the multitude of parallel worlds until she was forced to seek shelter at Tokyo Babel following the Divine Calamity... or at least it is said so.

She is an ever-elusive "phantom lady" whose thoughts and intentions remain vague at best. Though not necessarily through thick or thin, her smile nonetheless remains vibrant and unwavering. All in all, if one thing can be said about her for certain, it's that she prioritizes fun and merriment above all else.

...Lilith was the first to discover Tendou Setsuna, whom she saved not out of pity, but rather sheer curiosity.

Voiced byHanazawa Kana

Description

She is the owner of the Sefer Raziel, a grimoire containing all the knowledge of the cosmos since Creation. Following Adam's exile from Paradise, she entrusted him with the book to grant him wisdom.

She loves books. Whether it's a hardcover or a paperback edition, an e-book or mere scrawls on a piece of parchment, she loves them all unconditionally. The tablet PC she cradles in her right hand is filled with myriads of e-books, including many files of dubious origins, some of which are hidden, and even password-protected.

...She is unable to recall a portion of her memories; it is unclear whether this fact leaves her genuinely unconcerned, or if she's simply sweeping the problem under the rug.

Deliberately playing the role of an airhead character, deep inside she hides her true nature of, wel... a genuine airhead.

Description

A fallen angel who commands venom and death, Samael is the very incarnation of the immortal, unaging serpent. She is suspected as one of the culprits behind the Divine Calamity.

Her charming looks are paired with a cruel personality - she wields her Death Scythe with little regard for mercy, slaying all those who dare oppose her. Her particulars are vague, ah, so vague. Vague beyond measure. In fact, she might have been misjudged all along, having done nothing of particular gravity. Ah, but let us not dwell on trivialities. Simply put, her smile never fades; her days are colored with joy and fulfillment. Nary a problem to be found in there, really.

From the very day they met, she's taken a liking to Tendou Setsuna - she could tease and torment him for days on end without ever tiring.

Description

An archdemon often labeled the "Jurist of Hell" who now works as a teacher at Pandora.

Belial is a demon who occupies an exceedingly neutral position at Pandora, and whose frank and sociable disposition has earned him the trust of his peers. Despite his strong, muscular build, he himself boasts of being "an intellectual among intellectuals". Although his power is comparable to that of Astaroth, Belial himself seldom exercises it, as he cares little for politics and prefers a lifestyle of freedom.

With the whereabouts of the four master archangels shrouded in mystery, Camael has now become a commander to the angels, spending most of his time at the Student Council Room while weathering the incessant storm of issues being thrown his way.

Though labeled hot-headed by many, deep inside Camael himself realizes that one must always formulate a plan before marching off to battle. It is just that he believes that courage and willpower are still the key to victory when, despite a carefully organized strategy, the odds of defeat remain exceedingly high.

Its fluffiness is a force to be reckoned with.

Due to the sheer amount of volumes present in the library, they have only just about recently finished sorting through two thirds of the entire collection... Incidentally, the differences between the psyche of individual corporeal manifestations can grow as wide as to divide their preferable roles in romantic relationships.

Description

Once an angel who commanded "concealment", Gethel's mind was crippled by madness, turning her into one of the Masters.

Gethel is a mid-class angel of the fifth rank, her powers paling in comparison to archangels. Her eyes, on the other hand, are endowed with a unique ability that allows her to discover the truth regarding all things she casts her gaze upon. Those she wishes to see and those she does not; things no being ought to see and things she yearns to have never laid eyes upon, tracing all the way back to the source of it all: Gethel's sight reveals them without exception. Her burden far too large, it inevitably made the girl's mind yield to madness.

Though his whereabouts since the Divine Calamity have been shrouded in fog, he has already joined the ranks of those maddened. He appears to display a particular obsession with Raziel, though his true intentions remain unknown. Regardless of what his outside appearance may suggest, there is naught but simmering embers left of his old self within his soul.

Immune to any and all attempts at rational communication, he is driven solely by his unquenchable desire to hunt and kill- the only ones to make Uriel stay his hand would be those he pledged devotion to.
