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.
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.
