- "Fear Not, I will Protect You"
- — Raphael
Unlike other Angels, Gaurdian Angels do not typically reside in The Angelic Kingdom unless they choose to. Guardian Angels are born in Heaven and reside in what is called The Utopia of the Blessed, loacted in Astral Chaos. Michael and Rafael were born in Heaven and stayed there for years upon years. Like every other pair of Guardian Angel brothers, Michael and Rafael were assigned a human as soon as they were born. For millenia, they waited and waited for their human to be born with only a name to go by: Alexander Tadeas. When finally he was concieved and born in 1590, they were relieved to finally have purpose.
As they watched their new beloved Human adjust to being born in the human world, news spread through the Utopia that a Human was currently residing there. They went to go see who it was and discovered a young woman who just as confused as they were.
Michael is the more brash and hot-headed of the two. He likes to hear himself talk. Rafael is calmer and gentler in a sense, but is very serious and commanding with an almost merciless edge. They both have strange Superiority complexes against Humans, especially Rafael, sans Alexander.
Michael has long (nowhere near as long as Rafael's), blonde hair. He wears red, white and gold armor that matches his Sword and Shield.
Rafael has vibrant, strawberry-red hair and green eyes. His hair is very long and he pulls it back into a loose braid. Unlike Michael, he does not wear armour, instead he wears white, god-like attire. He also does not have his wings on display most of the time.
Michael wields a Sword and Shield, which he can light aflame at will. Rafael's weapon, a long, mechanical blade, bends to his every command.
These Weapons are called, by mortals, The Flaming Sword and Song of Healing
Michael's Critical Edge is the Ascending Angel. He hits the opponent into the air with his shield before throwing his sword into their stomach. He flies into the air and grabs the hilt of his sword, bring the blade up and through his opponent. He lands on the ground right before the opponent does.
Rafael's Critical Edge is Judgement Day.

Are the Guardian Angels and weapons of Alexander Tadeas
Met Kisandra after SoulCalibur sent her to The Utopia of the Blessed
Michael and Rafael are pulled directly from the Archangels of the same name and even have the same titles.
They seem to have a strange kind of Rivalry going on between them, as this is seen in their battle quotes against each other
Michael and Rafael are not actually brothers, or related to each other
