I've had this nickname for video games for quiet a while now, not in reference to anything... and I was just wondering if there are any big stories behind the Angel of Death, or is that just another name for the Grim Reaper or something? Well, if you have stories or links, just reply ;)

According to psychic Sylvia Browne there is no such thing as a angel of death. ;)

I know that in my family so far everyone that has died has always reported being visited by and seeing a beautiful 'angel' in the room a few days before they pass.  My dad, uncle, cousin and grandmother said that their angels came.  So, I always took this as the angel of death.

The main Angel of Death is Azrael.  Although I've heard of Gabriel filling in that role in a pinch.  Both of Them are ArchAngels.

I have heard of the Angel of Death. But as I recall it had to do with the whole holocaust issue. Research saids that this portion of the Death Camps tour looks at the history of holocaust. By comparing Germany's Nazi holocaust and America's abortion holocaust you'll see there is practically no difference between the mindset of holocaust then and now. As with slavery in early America, killing Jews in Nazi Germany, or killing babies in America today -- just because something is legal does not make it right. So how do you get a country to allow humans to be treated worse than animals? You use euphemisms to convince people that these actions are justifiable, or even beneficial.

Abortion advocates and America's largest Death Camp operator, Planned Parenthood, have elevated the dehumanization of holocaust victims to an art form with their 'pro-choice' rhetoric. But those who side with the pro-choice crowd may be shocked by the racial slurs and elitist ideals of Planned Parenthood's celebrated founder, Margaret Sanger. As you'll see, her words and goals bear an eerie similarity to the words and ideas of the Nazis. Let's begin by looking at the famous Nazi Death Camp doctor who graduated from killing Jews to killing babies.

Don’t hold on me this, because I researched this information.

I smile because I have no idea of what's going on.

 i've always thought of the angel of death as kind of the grim reaper, but not as bad. like someone that comes to the dying and takes the soul away. i also have always thought of the angel of death as azrael, thanks to dogma. i love that movie.

The Muslim theology, Azrael is the angel of death. He will be the last to die, but will do so at the second trump of the archangel.

The phrase 'the Wings of Azrael' refers to the approach of death; the signs of death coming on the dying. The story goes that Moses petitioned Allah to send a being to relieve people of their lives, having had a virgin who had lived for over 500 years resurrected, and hearing her complaining of the world weariness she had experienced. Allah then sent Azrael to take people's lives after sixty or seventy years.

In Judeo-Christian belief, the archangel of Annunciation, Resurrection, Mercy, Revelation and Death. Also known in Hebrew orthography as Gabri-el. The angel who gave the Annunciation of Christ's birth to the Virgin Mary, and also the angel responsible for blowing the Trump on Judgment Day.

In Islamic belief, the angel who dictated the Q'uran to Muhammad, and the angel of Truth.

Some theological thought holds that Gabriel is (as much as angels can be) female, the only one among a male or androgynous Host. The name is derived from the Sumerian root GBR, governor.

The Angel of Death in Falasha lore. It is said that Moses received all his knowledge from Suriel. This "angel" is also mentioned in The Canonical Prayerbook of the Mandaeans as "Sauriel the Releaser".

I hope that helps ;)
