God

From Wikimon
God appearing as a silhouette in Digimon Adventure V-Tamer 01.

God (神 "Kami"?) is an immeasurably powerful being of ultimate goodness[1][2] and infinite love[3] that resides within the Digital World's central "Kernel", which is protected by the Three Archangels and the rest of the Angel-type digimon.[4] The Three Archangels, Seraphimon, Cherubimon, and Ofanimon, were given the duty to execute God's enlightened laws, guard his wisdom, and impart his love and mercy respectively, while also being the ones to command God's Army, which is composed of all Angel digimon.[5][2][4][1] Holy Angemon serves as a speaker for God's "Light" which seeks to preserve the order of the Digital World.[6] Sakuyamon acts as an agent of God's will.[7], while Kongoumon was believed to also be an agent as well in ancient times.[8] Airdramon, a Mythical Animal Digimon, is said to be close to God.[9]

It is often interpreted that "God" is a term used as a synonym for the Four Holy Beasts that govern the stability of the Digital World, but it's also said that God is an existence beyond the Four Holy Beasts. Some research reports that God has a different origin from the digimon and in fact is the System of the Digital World itself.[1] Others believe that God may be the human who created the Digital World.[10] There is an investigation on the matter, but a definite answer is not yet to be found.[1]

Angel Digimon are positioned near to God,[2] with Seraphimon the closest of them all[5], but because of that extreme, they can easily fall into the opposite extreme of "Wickedness".[2] In fact, Lucemon and Demon (while still a Seraphimon[5]) instigated a failed rebellion against God, alongside many other Demon Lord-type digimon, and were deleted to the Dark Area as punishment.[3][10] Bagramon, one of the Demon Lords who took part, rebelled in rejection of what he considers the "unreasonable justice of the world", and so had the right side of its body ripped away. Although Bagramon would be forgiven if he repents before God, he refused to submit, and instead seeks to replace God's justice with its own "New Justice", with which it will banish God.[11]

God's Army[edit]

After the Son of God, Lucemon,[1] descended to the Ancient Digital World and instigated a conflict between good and evil,[3] to fight against this rebellion, God divided three of its own aspects and gave one to each of his three apostles, who would be in charge of directing God's Army in order to fight against all the Fallen Angel digimon.[1]

These three apostles were: the highest ranking among the "Male Angel" digimon, who became the absolute guardian of the order and justice of God, Seraphimon; the database who holds the vast knowledge of God, Cherubimon, who is also the highest ranking among the "Holy Beast" digimon; and, embodying the deep love of God, the symbol of the existence of the Female Angels, Ofanimon. In other words, he created the digimon known as the Three Archangels.[1] Each of these three Ultimate Digimon has ten wings and and rules on top of the sacred angel digimon,[1] with Seraphimon being the one closest to God among them all.[5] The Army is organized with the Archangel-types having eight wings, the Angel-types having six wings, and the Holy Beast digimon carrying "Holy Rings".[1]
