Villain Overview
So, you took Abaddon's scalp, then you figured you'd take on little old nebbishy me. What could go wrong? And you're powered by the bone of a jackass, and it is just awesome, right? Here's a tip - next time, try to be powered by the Word of God.

So I'm a fake. Do you have any idea how much pan-cake makeup and soft lighting it took to get God to work a rope line? He hated it. And, you know, humans sense that. So they prayed harder and longer and fought more wars in his name. And for what?! So they could die of malaria? Leukemia? And all the while, blaming themselves! "Oh, if only I'd been more prayerful, God would have loved me! God would have saved me!" You know what?! God didn't even know their name! But I do. Because I've walked among them. And I can save them.
~ Metatron

Overview

Metatron possessed a short, man with black hair, whom he described as "nebbish." As an angel, he considered himself to be lovable and funny, claiming to possess made God laugh on twice. Unlike most angels, Metatron seemed to have a kind of affection for humanity, especially their capability for storytelling, claiming that whilst an angel he had yet to catch up to all or any the stories mankind has written. While Metatron showed A level of appreciation for humans, he had utter disdain for angels, especially the archangels to the purpose he had hidden a secret spell within the angel tablet that might eject and lock all the angels out of Heaven when performed. He blames the archangels and therefore the remainder of angelkind for running him out of Heaven and the chaos they inflicted on Earth out of grief within the wake of God's departure.

His powers would be boosted with the help of the angel tablet, even allowing him to extinguish the holy fire. However, he's rendered powerless when Castiel smashes the angel tablet and eventually extracts his grace.

As a human, Metatron initially showed excitement at experiencing the planet as a person's, from tasting food to the act of digestion and using the restroom, which he mentioned as "sorcery" and quickly learned that he's lactose intolerant. While Metatron thought it might be easy living life as a person's, his tune would change, claiming the indignities of creating his rent, keeping his phone charged, and hemorrhoids had become an excessive amount of for him. Nevertheless, when meeting with God face to face, Metatron showed his true compassion for humanity, claiming that despite their flaws and violent nature they were God's greatest creation and better than him because they are doing their best to offer hope and happiness to every other and the way they never hand over regardless of what, something he says even God does too easily.
