The War in Heaven is the biblical war that occurred in Heaven, where God cast down rebellious Angels into Hell, where they became demons.
It is unclear when the war occurred. Few dated events can help determine the period when it set:
- An entity that was possibly the Demon/Fallen Angel Mammon, was trapped under the Earth's crust beneath the Gulf of Mexico, five miles off the coast of Galveston, Texas, for millions of years, but it remains unclear if the entity was truly the biblical Mammon.
- Lucifer was an Angel when he fought and repelled the N'Garai, one million years ago.
The Angels were charged with protecting mankind from the evils of the universe. However, some of the angels were jealous of the humans. Lucifer the Morningstar, son of dawn and bringer of light, the most powerful Angel, led a rebellion against God, starting a war in Heaven.
War in Heaven
Among the Angels mentioned to have joined Lucifer's rebellion as his chief lieutenants were fourteen angels, including Asmodeus, Lilith, Samael, Pazuzu, Xaphan, Micah, Beelzeboul, and Olivier.
Although only Lucifer, Micah and Olivier's claims are corroborated by non-fallen Angels, Pazuzu, Lilith and Xaphan's claims are considered confirmed as well. Other Demons' claims aren't formally confirmed but appear to be true.
Angels expelled from Heaven
Lucifer and his followers
Unconfirmed sources listing as Fallen Angels (all believed to have followed Lucifer against their leader in the war against Heaven) whose fate is unrevealed the following:
Zadkiel and his followers
Zadkiel and his subordinates of the Black Host, including Malakim brothers Emmael and Vraniel, because of their previous alliance with Lucifer, were no longer allowed to serve in the choir, but were instead to serve into a kind of "black ops" squad. They were also cast down to a portion of Heaven where they couldn't hear God and he couldn't hear them.
In modern days, Vraniel and Emmael would try to redeem themselves, in vain.
Kazann and Malachi's alliance
- Malachi is sometimes erroneously listed among the lieutenants of Lucifer cast down to Hell after the War in Heaven.
