Furiad is one of Gabriel's lieutenants. He is also Gabriel's most trusted ally and soldier. He is a power, a higher caste of angel responsible for keeping the lower angels in line, but lower than Archangels.
Furiad is very prideful. Michael describes him as "vanity before intelligence." He cares deeply for his fellow angels and is fiercely loyal to Gabriel. Unlike most higher angels, Furiad holds some value to lower angels and was visibly saddened and shocked when Gabriel killed his eight-ball lover.
Like all of Gabriel's angel followers, Furiad disdains humanity. However, his conversation with Michael suggests that Furiad has had intimate contact with humans at some point, as Michael noted that, like himself, Furiad "smells" like a human and comments of Furiad's vanity, suggesting that Furiad has had sexual relations with human women.
Furiad appears as an olive-tone male with red eyes. He wears red armor in battle and wears a red leather jacket when not in battle.
