|Anime Debut:||Virgin Soul Episode 15|
Ridwan (リドワン, Ridowan) is an angel.
Ridwan is a young female angel with blond hair and purple eyes. She wears blue marine glasses and a white and blue dress with black leggings.
Ridwan holds a deep resentment towards humans for their mistreatment of the gods, partly blaming them for the many lives that have been lost in the past ten years. She is sad that humans choose to purge them instead of thanking them for sacrificing themselves during times of crisis. Her resentment is not so strong however, that she would refuse to assist Jeanne in reuniting with her son El.
Ridwan, along with many lesser angels, guards a forest in the land of the gods. When she discovers Nina Drango and Jeanne d'Arc there, she attacks them and demands to know who they are. When Jeanne informs them that she is in search of her son El, Ridwan agrees to escort them, but first she takes them to a structure that is filled with beautiful lights.
She sadly informs the pair that each light represents an angel who died in battle. Ridwan explains that many angels were lost during the fight against Bahamut ten years ago, and that the battle was won due to the sacrifice of the gods, yet humans have decided to purge the world of gods and angels instead of thanking them.
Ridwan tearfully adds that more angels have died recently, leaving the land void of life. Jeanne apologizes profusely, while Nina is unable to comprehend the cruel actions of Charioce XVII, the man responsible for trying to get rid of the gods.
When El flees from his cell, Ridwan is the one to inform Gabriel of his actions. Once El has escaped the gods's land, she and Sofiel report the news to Gabriel. Ridwan is slightly offended by Jeanne's decision to retrieve her son herself. Jeanne still demands to go and ends up dragging Sofiel with her down to the surface.
Ridwan and another angel note that, shortly after this event, Gabriel has locked herself in her chambers and refuses to see anyone. Jeanne and Sofiel do return eventually, and Ridwan hurriedly reports the news to Gabriel. However, Jeanne informs Gabriel that her son has been murdered and she demands to go to war against Charioce XVII with the gods by her side.
Sofiel blesses Jeanne with her powers while Gabriel and Ridwan bear witness.
When Bahamut returns, Ridwan assists her fellow gods and the demons in forming a shield around Anatae. Once Bahamut is defeated, Ridwan chooses to remain on the surface and takes on a human form in order to spend time with Sofiel, Rita, Bacchus and Hamsa.
