Plot summary[edit]

Ulisses (Uli, for short) is the first new guardian angel to join the Angelus System in 300 years. Quickly dissatisfied with how arbitrary the orders he receives daily are, he decides to rebel and discover for himself the limits between good and evil, to the chagrin of his tutors, Greta and Chun, and his manager, Fred. On the other side there is the earthly Miriam, a girl full of mixed beliefs, from Buddhism to astrology, which hinder her life more than they help.
