Aziraphale is Heaven's angelic representative on Earth in the novel Good Omens, described thus: "Many people, meeting Aziraphale for the first time, formed three impressions: that he was English, that he was intelligent, and that he was gayer than a tree full of monkeys on nitrous oxide." His entry on the Good Omens Lexicon is extensive.


The fandom's favorite slash pairing is Aziraphale/Crowley; however, gen stories are equally as popular.

There has been ongoing dialogue between the creators and fans regarding his activities and whereabouts.

Common Tropes & Storylines

  • As Aziraphale is an angel, wingfic is very common. There are also works where he loses his wings and this wingless fic trope, originated in the Good Omens fandom as a response to all the wing fic.
  • Post-canon works are very common.
  • Ezra Fell is often an alias used by Aziraphale. Zirah is a nickname other characters apply to Aziraphale.
  • Demon!Aziraphale works are often role reversal AUs. In some works, Aziraphale takes the name Zirah or another name, to replace his angelic name.
  • Aziraphale is often headcanoned as ace due to a line in the original novel about angel sexuality.
