Biblical: Arael's name means "lion of God" or alternatively known as an Angel and a Demon, he has dominion over wind.
Evangelion: Arael appears in the sky, the same way as Sahaquiel, and this time has a much more harmful attack for the viewer to witness than simply dropping bits of orange goop onto the ground. He shines a light on Asuka that begins to rape her mind and force her to see all sorts of horrible things she doesn't want to... like her mother's suicide, for example. They take it out by tearing the Lance of Longinus from Lilith's chest and hurling it into the sky, where it promptly twists into a spear and rips through Arael, reducing it to nothing. The lance then falls into orbit around the moon where it will eventually crash-stab into the surface.
