天使议会（智凡迪译安杰瑞斯议会，松岗译暂无，英文为Angiris Council）是高阶天堂的领导组织。它最初是由五位大天使组成, each of a particular aspect said to represent the chief virtues of 阿努.<ref name = "BoC">Book of Cain</ref> Over time however, the Council's unity and members has diminished, including the absence of 大天使马萨伊尔.
代表希望的大天使。唯一一个在议会中的女性。<ref name = "D3A4"/>Closest to Itherael。有着粉红色的，发光的双翼。
代表智慧的大天使。在世界之石的毁灭后消失。<ref name = "BoC"/>在混乱中无休止地徘徊, 寻求着宇宙的答案。
The Great Conflict
As the Great Evils were of Tathamet, the Angiris Council was of Anu, and both sets of leaders led their forces in the Great Conflict.<ref name = "BoC"/> and both sets of leaders led their forces on the battlefield. When united, the Council could be unstoppable. However, they were not without dissonance, a case in point when Imperius slew Diablo on an impulse, despite the suggestions of Tyrael and Auriel that it would serve their cause better if the demon was taken prisoner instead.<ref name = "Wrath"/>
The Sin War
The Angiris Council became aware of the existance of Sanctuary and its nephalem denizens, both world and beings the product of unions between angels and demons. It was the Council's initial edict that the world and its people be destroyed, viewed as "abominations." However, Uldyssian's sacrifice gave the Council pause and it conveened to discuss the fate of the world. Imperius opted for erradication. Auriel and Itherael voted for the world's continued existance. Malthael abstained. Tyrael, who had been expected to side with Imperius and thus doom Sanctuary to destruction (a tie would mean the original edict would be carried out), sided with humanity, moved by Uldyssian's sacrifice. Sanctuary and its people would be left to choose between light or dark, and after a pact with Mephisto, both Heaven and Hell agreed to respect its neutrality.<ref name = "TVP"/>
Seeds of Discord
So much for your unity...
Diablo mocking the Council<ref name = "Wrath"/>
The events of the Sin War had ensured that the Great Conflict would take on a new paradigm, one that boded ill for the Angiris Council as much as the Prime Evils. The ceasefire did not sit well with Imperius—robbed of an enemy to fight, he became something of a "legalistic tyrant." That Tyrael had not sided with him at the conclusion of the Sin War was another thorn in his side. Furthermore, Tyrael would continue to act on his own, aiding humanity despite the edicts of the Council. Auriel continued to act as a bridge between the two angels but Malthael was another story. It was said his mood darkened after the the creation of Sanctuary. After the destruction of the Worldstone, he simply vanished.<ref name = "BoC"/>
And the Heavens Shall Tremble
You cannot judge me. I am justice itself! We were made for more than this! To protect the innocent! But if our precious laws bind you all to inaction...then I will no longer stand as your brother.
Tyrael's parting words<ref name = "D3A2C">Diablo III, Act II Intro Cinematic</ref>
By 1285,<ref name = "Timeline">Diablo timeline</ref> the remaining lords of Hell were threatening Sanctuary, and Tyrael and Imperius came to blows over the issue. Ultimately, Tyrael forsook his immortality, becoming mortal and descending to the world to guide a new group of heroes against the forces threatening their world.<ref name = "D3A2C"/> In this they were successful. However, Diablo had made plans as far back as the Dark Exile<ref name = "D3CE">Diablo III Collector's Edition DVD</ref> and through the Black Soulstone and Leah, became the Prime Evil, with all the evils of Hell merged into one being. Besting Imperius outside the Diamond Gates and shattering them, he led his forces into the High Heavens.<ref name = "D3A4C">Diablo III, Act IV Intro Cinematic</ref> Auriel and Itherael were captured while Imperius was left to fight a losing battle. Thanks to Tyrael and his mortal allies however, Auriel and Itherael were rescued and the tide turned in Heaven's favor. Imperius was not so eager to side with the "abominations" he'd condemned 3,000 years ago, but it became a moot point as he was incapacitated and the heroes defeated the Lord of Terror regardless.<ref name = "D3A4">Diablo III, Act IV</ref>
As new light dawned on Heaven, Tyrael retook his place among his breatheren, though this time, standing as Wisdom.<ref name = "D3A4E"/>
