Tarmiel's current appareance

Tarmiel is a tall, muscular man that has three heads and six small pairs of angelic wings protruding from his back. He wears a toga with robes adorned on his body and had a symbol of the Goddess Clan.


Tarmiel is very confident in his abilities, stating that he would defeat the Ten Commandments within ten seconds in his bet with Sariel who bets within five minutes.

He speaks in a polite, yet mocking manner, and seems to like toying with his opponents. Unsurprisingly, he also looks down on the Demon Clan.

He has also been shown to have a kinder side as well. When Elizabeth explained her wish to coexist with the Demon Clan, Tarmiel was willing to go against Ludoshel's orders and aid her in returning Derieri and Monspeet to their original forms.


Memories of the Holy War arcEdit

Tarmiel appeared 3,000 years ago during the Holy War. After Ludoshel's plan to bait out the Ten Commandments was a success, he arrived along with Sariel and declared their intentions of wiping out the Demon Clan members present.

Betting ten seconds with his fellow Archangel, Tarmiel combined his Ark together with Sariel's own that decimated the entire Demon army sans the five Commandments who managed to survive.

He then engaged in combat against an enraged Derieri who used 54 blows of her Combo Star and was seemingly battered to near pulp before revealing to be completely unharmed. Then the Archangel gets sliced in half by Galand who joined the fray and recovered once again, as he felt amused of their attempts to kill him. As the two Commandments were about to strike together, Tamriel readies himself for a counterattack. Two of his faces block the attacks of Derieri and Galand and finally he throws his Ark against Galand. There Tarmiel receives an attack from Monspeet that pierces his head. After healing at the arrival of Ludoshel, Derieri and Monspeet assume their Indura transformation. Ludoshel orders Sariel and Tarmiel to leave, but Monspeet manages to catch him and injure them severely. After healing themselves, the two Archangels precended Elizabeth's difficulties in her attempt to save Derieri and Monspeet from their transformation. Ludoshel orders them to eliminate the Commandments, but upon hearing Elizabeth's will when they claim that the Demon Clan are their enemies, Sariel and Tarmiel decide to give her their powers to save Derieri and Monspeet.

Along with the rest of the Goddess Clan, Tarmiel lost his physical body in order to seal the Demon Clan at the end the Holy War. His spirit pass to inhabite inside a staff.

Tarmiel informs that the Fairy Clan and the Giant Clan will send their own armies to support them in battle. When Ludoshel recalls that Elizabeth is not part of the Assault Squad to avoid confronting Meliodas, both Sariel and Tarmiel defend her by stating that they need Elizabeth on the battlefield

In the march towards the battle, Tarmiel discusses with Sariel the benefits that Ludoshel's Breath of Bless of gives them when converting the Holy Knights into their "pawns". When Sariel asks what is the reason for Ludoshel to choose Hendrickson as a servant when he is not under the effects of such magic, Tarmiel responds that he does not know.

During the battle with the demon army, Sariel and Tarmiel release their Omega Ark, eliminating most of the enemy forces with easy. There, Tarmiel says that at that rate they will not even have a warm up for the battle against the Commandments, especially with Estarossa.

When the demon army is finally defeated, Elizabeth and Deathpierce argue about the power of Ludoshel's Breath of Bless, telling her that they should not trust such temporary power to what Deathpierce is against. After Sariel revealed Elizabeth's actions to persuade the demons to abandon the fight, Tarmiel also explains that Breath of Bless does not heal injuries and that Elizabeth was the one that was responsible for healing everyone's injuries during the battle.
