Angel Series:  Gaghiel by Seifex Angel Series:  Gaghiel by Seifex
Biblical: Gaghiel is the guardian of the sixth layer of heaven. He is also the Angel of fish. More information on this angel was hard to find--anyone who can provide me solid information, I'll post it here and give you the credit, as long as you give me a source.

Evangelion: Gaghiel appears when Misato and Shinji visit the aircraft carriers transporting the Production Model Unit 02 to Japan. It begins to trash the ships in its wake, and Shinji and Asuka make a run for Eva-02. They dual-pilot it, and somehow it works... though they fall into the ocean with the angel, uneqipped with armor that would make them mobile underwater. Gaghiel puts its teeth through Unit 02, and begins to swim off with it like a fish hooked on a line. Gaghiel too, was hooked, because Unit 02 was still connected to its power cable. Asuka devised a plan that involved pulling the fish-like Angel back in by rewinding the cable, while sending the two remaining battleships underwater and into Gaghiel's mouth. At the last moment, Asuka and Shinji manage to pry Gaghiel's mouth open, the battleships shove in, and unleash all their arms on its internal S2 Organ. It blows up like a bad dish overheated in a microwave. It's one of the less deeply influenced Angels in the series.

Thought I'd put some input in here of a non beligerent nature; you will not find gaghiel in the Christian Bible, the only angels found by name in the Christian Bible are Michael, Gabriel, these are heavenly angels.

I'd believe it. When getting their biblical sources for Evangelion they took from basically any book from the west with the word God in it, haha...I used to know most of them in my head but anymore I have stopped caring. Good comment, though.

Haha...I didn't like it so much in the show because, like all fish to me, there's not a lot of personality there. It has no evident eyes or's just a dick that likes to chomp on stuff. And how the hell was he planning to get to Adam (or rather, Lilith) without leaving the water? Worthless, lol.

There's a little Sachiel-esque face on top of the jaws, near the joint with the rest of the body.

Gaghiel isn't in the bible because he became a fallen angel and, apparently, the Catholic Canon rules his story unneccessary for Lucifer is the main, and, if I'm correct, only listed fallen angel.
