Zauriel was an angel of the Eagle Host, one of the four hosts of Heaven (Eagle, Human, Bull and Lion). Since the dawn of creation, Zauriel served The Presence (God) as a guardian angel, protecting the souls of countless women, including Cleopatra, Mona Lisa, and Joan of Arc. He later falls in love with one of his assignments, a woman with a boyfriend from San Francisco. At about the same time, Zauriel learns of the secret plans of Asmodel, King-Angel of the Bull Host and one of the main generals of Heaven's armies. He and a legion of Bull angels were attempting to succeed where Lucifer failed by overthrowing The Presence. Descending to Earth in a mortal form, Zauriel teams up with the rest of the Justice League to defeat Asmodel and his army before being forced to defeat him alone in Heaven later on. Afterwards, he renounces his own immortality to live a life as a mortal angel on Earth, becoming a member of the Justice League and protecting mankind. Zauriel was created by Grant Morrison, Mark Millar, Howard Porter, and John Dell, and first appeared in JLA #6 in 1997.
