A millennium ago, in reality 04 (Frontiers) Angemon and Angewomon used to be Lucemon´s greatest generals.
Until one day they met the 11th from the Ten Legendary warriors, Digidestined Shizuka Kimura, and thanks to her they realized how a madman was Lucemon and switched sides.
When Lucemon was defeated by the Legendary 10, only Shizuka survived and because she was a human child the 3 new rules Seraphimon, Ophanimon and Cherubimon sent her back home.
While Shizuka believed everything was a dream no digimon ever forgot about her, especially Lucemon’s ex generals. Having sworn to redeem themselves from all the harm caused by Lucemon and their own foolishness they protected the digiworld for the next 500 years without fail.
Until one day a group of rogue digimons who were still loyal to Lucemon attempted to re-awaken him by stealing some sacred codes, instead of resurrecting the fallen angel they accidentally opened a portal which brought to the Digiworld an entity by far worse than Lucemon himself: Quartzmon!
The entity wanted nothing to do about receiving orders, instead of breaking the seal as the rogues wished it directly began to steal the Digiworld’s codes for its own digievolution. The more it evolved, the more made it its mission to absorb everything until discovering the roots of both Yggdrasil and Homeeostasis and eat their cores as well.
The foe proved to be too powerful for even the Three Great Angels’ combined powers and the digispirits that once formed part of the Legendary 10 weren’t ready to be awakened either. But Holy Angemon was adamant on defeating that monster even it that meant to give away his own life!
With Angewomon’s help they managed to unroot Quartzmon from Yggdrasil’s core and Holy Angemon subsequently a Gate of Destiny behind the monster. But due to first-hand experience he knew that Quartzmon would be able to open the door, like the first time, and return to the Digiworld so the angel chose the ultimate sacrifice…. by opening the gate and jumping into it while carrying the monster so the enemy´s link with Yggdrasil would be cut clean for good and deprive him of anymore codes…
This is an excerpt from the mini story “The angel and the Child” describing what happened afterwards:
“Push us inside the gate and I´ll finish him!” was Magna Angemon´s order and Angewomon only accepted because she intended to follow him , no matter what her partner said.
And so she did, pushing both and entering herself. What happened on the other side…her memories were blurry, the being known as Quartzmon weakened considerably in that strange limbo, unable to absorb anymore codes from the computer host he had no chance against Magna Angemon´s Excalibur; but Magna Angemon was badly wounded as well and in the end she assisted the male angel for a final, deadly blow.And then all she could remember was the light and him smiling at her for the last time before pushing her into it…
What happened to those angels?
Holy Angemon ended reincarnating as Reality 01 Takeru Takaishi’s first Angemon while Angewomon reincarnated as a human girl, Nova, in reality 012. Yet those angels were destined to meet once again…
