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.
