Ariel (Ari'el, Arael or Ariael; Hebrew: אריאל‎) is an Archangel found primarily in Judeo-Christian mysticism and Apocrypha. Generally presented as an authority over the Earth and its elements, Ariel has also been called an angel of healing, wrath & creation.

The Hebrew name "Ariel" means literally "Altar" or "Lion of God". "Ariel" has been called an ancient name for the leontomorphic Gnostic Demiurge (Creator God). Historically, the entity Ariel was often pictured in mysticism as a lion-headed deity or demon with power over the Earth, giving a strong foundation for Ariel's association with the Demiurge.
