Dahariel's Lessons & TrainingEdit

He secretly trained Andromeda since childhood...

  • First lesson of battle. Think. Do not be stupid.[9]
  • Dahariel had taught Andromeda that skill of finding sleep under any condition over a hundred years of training. A warrior who could sleep where he or she had the chance, was a warrior who’d last longer in battle—or in enemy hands. Sleep is a weapon. It rejuvenates and heals. Use it like any other weapon at your disposal. [7]
  • Kept up her skill by sparring with Dahariel and Galen behind walls that protected her secret. [7]
  • Dahariel had taught her how to assess a threat situation. [8]
  • if she asked, he spoke to her about angelic politics and how to understand the complexity of it. [8]
  • Galen and Dahariel both having taught her to be honest with any partner in battle. [10]

2. Archangel's KissEdit

Sam points him out while giving Elena a tour of the Refuge. He gives her a curt nod then walks to Astaad's area.[1] Raphael names him as one of the angels in the Refuge at the time of Noel's beating.[11] Raphael said Dahariel is Astaad's, and will require more care—he is integral to the smooth running of Astaad's territory. Raph can't go after them without risking war. Dahariel appeared disgusted by the attack on Sam, but his house is full of vampires that fear angel wings.[3] Dahariel is the strongest of the three suspects (Nazarach, Anoushka), most coldly intelligent—leaving that decapitated head on Anoushka's pillow was the kind of calculated threat Dahariel might make. If it is him, he has struck close to home—one of Astaad's favorite concubines was found eviscerated yesterday.[12] Maya discovered that Dahariel is keeping a vampire that was Made before he became a man—five hundred years ago—in a private cage for his entertainment. He tortures him slowly. He signed on with him for four decades to get protection against other angels. It's not enough for Astaad to stop him. Raphael says he'll offer to buy the boy's contract—for Jason.[13]

8. Archangel's Enigma Edit

Andromeda tells Naasir that Dahariel is her other mentor with the sword.[4] Nassir told him that Andromeda had been kidnapped by Xi. Nassir sensed there was a deeper connection than even Andromeda realized because he taught her without any demands. Dahariel peomised to take his squadron to join Galen’s.[5]

Quotes Edit

"Dahariel appeared disgusted by the attack on Sam," Raphael said, his expression impenetrable, "but his home is filled with vampires who all but whimper at the sound of an angel's wings." ... What was Dahariel doing to elicit the same reaction from almost-immortals who'd lived hundreds of years?[3]
