[edit] Speculation&Trivia

Within the Subconscious psych Pins, this is one of three to use its own healing power, and it does exactly what its description says: since it kicks in when HP are low, there is no restorative potential wasted. As already discussed in this psychs' description, the inherently low Limit lets it down greatly: apart from boss and single battles, in most cases it is better to utilise conventional healing Pins. Due to this, it is graded as smack-bang in Class B.

As for the other Subconscious Pins, there is no tactic for them: they do the work automatically.

Since this Pin is the evolution of Guardian Angel, its name makes perfect sense, as an Archangel is a higher rank of Angel[1]. The image, however, is harder to understand: at a first glance, it looks like a design for the heavenly gates: the steps at the bottom, a blue gate atop them, and white clouds at the sides of it. Yet, the blue gate seems to have a handle at the top (which could also be a decorative feature of the gate), while the steps are inconsistent in size (although the top step, closest to the gate, could simply be a landing), so it could possibly be a metaphor for the players "life luggage" about to be carried away.

Whichever is the image, it clearly shows life moments before death, as signified by the R.I.P. letters, short for Rest In Peace -an often used term for the recently deceased. This is consistent with the Pins power, as it saves the player from a Game Over moments before this could occur. As with other Pavo Real Pins, it possesses a translucent, glittering quality, making it resemble a precious gem.
