Remiel first appears in the Martel Temple in Iselia after the oracle appears and Colette passes the trial of reaching the Seals safely. Upon meeting Remiel, it is immediately assumed he is Colette's "true" father, and Remiel plays along to earn the party's trust. Playing the role of guardian angel, Remiel guides Colette through her journey of World Regeneration from Seal to Seal. When Colette finally reaches the final Seal at the Tower of Salvation, Remiel reveals that he was pretending to be Colette's father and that his true intentions were to turn Colette over as Martel's vessel so that he would be promoted in rank to join the Four Seraphim. Lloyd's party engages Remiel in battle in their effort to rescue Colette, and succeed in defeating him. Once defeated, Remiel is shocked at the fact that an angel has been defeated by "inferior beings." When Kratos appears, Remiel begs him for help, but Kratos refuses his plea and instead mocks his beliefs, as well as those of Cruxis in general. Remiel subsequently dies.
