Rasandiel Gaignun is the head reverend of the Chapel of Aesar. Although for the most part, he appears agreeable, there are those even within the Chapel who lately are wary of him.
Rasandiel is twenty-six years old but behaves as though he is older and more experienced.
Danier sal Grimoire, Daniel
Rasandiel is introduced at the start of Shadows Jubilee when Nexus arrives at the Chapel to negotiate a treaty with the Shrouders. Rasandiel seems willing but needs to give it some thought. Later, when Nexus approaches him to request assistance in dealing with the Knights, Rasandiel blatantly refuses.
Rasandiel was born Danier sal Grimoire, the son of Marion Roman and was raised in Lunaria until her death at the hands of a soldier.
As it is later learned, Rasandiel actually had murdered his mother while consumed by "Soul Corruption".
Rasandiel is 5'8" with blue hair and green eyes. He wears glasses and blue academic's robes.
Rasandiel is an older brother/father-figure to Rachael Lasan having rescued her as a child and introduced her to the ministry. It is later revealed, he is actually her true father, Reid Lasan.
Rasandiel is a legacy of the family line of Andromeda, daughter of Galax and Azur.
Rasandiel's vision of a perfect world leads him to manipulate even close family. His machinations are such that even when he seems to lose, he wins. His goal really only alters once as he goes from the desire to achieve godhood by collecting and absorbing the aspects of darkness in order to create a utopian world between Anvar and Riene to later simply wishing for redemption.
- His birth name Danier, is a composite which means "Champion of Light" while Sal is Latin for "savior."
The Ras in his name was inspired by Ra's al-Ghul from Batman. Overall, the names Ras and Andi and the suffix -el combine to translate as "Head of the Virile God".
Rasandiel originated as Xandiel, a fan-created Nobody for Kingdom Hearts. Credit goes to poster Pretentious Soul for the name.
