The Celestial Digimon (三大天使 Sandaitenshi?, lit. "Three Archangels"), also retaining its original name as Three Great Angels, are a group of Mega-level Angel Digimon that are derived from the three highest angelic choirs of the Christian angelic hierarchy developed by Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, as well as the three archangels recognized by the Roman Catholic Church. It is said that Lucemon's abilities were split among them.[3] Their primary duty is to protect the Digital World's central "Kernel", the domain of its "God", though each of them has a unique secondary duty.[4] The Angelic Army work for them.[5] Because of the extreme of being positioned near the ultimate "Goodness", they each have another side that easily dyes their body with the other extreme of "Wickedness":[6] Daemon is said to be a fallen Seraphimon,[7] Lilithmon and Ophanimon Falldown Mode are fallen Ophanimon,[8][9] and Cherubimon (Evil) is a fallen Cherubimon (Good).[10] When a Celestial Digimon falls, the Kernel will select a Digimon and digivolve them into the relevant Celestial Digimon as a replacement.[11]
