Archangel Michael took it the hardest when Emilia fell. He knew her fall from Grace was because of him. He hadn’t meant to lead her on, but he had a lot of responsibility upon his shoulders. It didn’t mean that he hadn’t cared for her or that he didn’t love her, because he did. He always had, but he didn’t have time or luxury to indulge in Mates or be entertained by that.
It all changed though when she fell and became Mila. He had felt the betrayal, because not only had she turned her back on him, she had turned her back on everything that joined them together under the same banner. Will the dark shadow of her fall from Grace continue to haunt him forever?
Lucifer had watched the great Archangel begin to lose touch of his compassion and the destruction of his old friend turned nemesis was traced back to one event that triggered the darker transformation.
