Cassiel, also called the Perfect Companion, is one of Elua's Companions. He chose to remain by Elua's side throughout Elua's travels and believed himself damned for it for abandoning the One God. He took up the duty the One God neglected when he was too busy grieving for his son to pay attention to Elua. It was his dagger that Elua borrowed when he confronted the One God's messenger. He was the only one of the Companions who did not turn away from the One God and disobey his laws, remaining celibate. It is said that he was the only one who looked back in sorrow when Elua and his Companions entered the Terre-d'Ange-that-lies-beyond. He claimed no territory in Terre d'Ange.

The Yeshuites call Cassiel the apostate and believe he will one day return to the One God.

The Cassiline Brotherhood was founded in his name, in imitation of Cassiel's devotion to Elua. They serve as his priests, and he has no temples. Cassiel is not frequently prayed to.

On the Longest Night, Cassiline Brothers hold Elua's Vigil.
