While knowledgeable in some areas he is quite naive in others, which while can be entertaining for others just annoys him if he is left in the dark and the butt of the joke. Habits:

Angelus' mother was a normal human who was using her skills as a nurse to care for the sick and his father was a demon who was fleeing from an angel after a vicious fight, which left him barely able to stay disguised in his human form. Although it wasn't his intention to find refuge in the caring hands of a human, Angelus' mother took pity upon the demon, not knowing what he really was. Even though he healed quicker than a human it didn't stop the human insisting the demon to stay since she was convinced he hadn't fully healed properly. During that time he ended up feeling obligated to at least help her out in the small practice she had set up. Once he had had enough the demon seduced the nurse and eventually stole her heart in a night of passion that made her sleep deeply enough that he managed to sneak away without her realising it until the following morning. This of course left her heartbroken and a few months later she discovered she was with child as a result of that very night.
Nine months later she gave birth to Angelus. Neither she nor the doctors understood why her child appeared as he did but the doctors did chop of the small tail he had without her consent. She also refused any surgery they suggested to "correct" his ears as he grew. It was only at the age of three when an priest on his pilgrimage was visiting the small town where she lived did she discover what her son was and the fact she had been seduced not by a man but by a demon. The priest decided that god had sent him to this village to help his mother raise him and to help keep the secret of what he was. Unfortunately the priest was barely there a week when the end of day's incident happened.
Angelus doesn't remember much but he does remember bits and pieces. He remembers how the earth suddenly tremored so hard that he fell to the floor and how the floor crack under him as he played with some other children. Following that he remembers the stench of rotting flesh, limestone and sulphur, then watching as fire and ash began spewing from the ground. He then remembered as the priest and his mother took him and ran until they were safe. Once they were safe the three of them watched the town below be consumed in lava and flame. One thing he remembers being thankful for was his mother doing her best to cover his ears from the screams of the towns people who died to the sudden destruction. After watching the town where he was born be destroyed his mother, the priest, him and the surviving town folk then made their way to a nearby shrine. At first it was temporary accommodation but the survivors found themselves happier staying at the shrine than returning to the town. After that things became hazy and he just remembered living day to day in the shrine with the monks there giving him disapproving looks once in a while, which he never understood.
As Angelus grew his natural pre-adulthood urges began to kick in. He didn't understand why he got angry so easily or why he was so quick to resort to his fists whenever he saw wrong doings. All he knew is he felt the need to rip something, anything apart when someone wound him up. This included his peers, who he had a habit of getting into fights with on a regular bases.
Once he was twelve years old the priest, with the permission of Angelus' mother, took the boy on a journey with him in which he would teach the boy how to survive in the harsh land and to try and calm his spirit. It was during this trip that Angelus was fully exposed to what he was, which shattered his world. The priest then took him to a place where he knew he would be able to change his urges from destructive and hone them into something useful to protect the weak.
Once he was sixteen he and the priest returned to shrine only to find his mother and a few other of the village folk had gone. It would seem while they were away the monks of the shrine took to telling Angelus' mother what a sinner she was for keeping him and exposed the fact that she had given birth to a demon's child to all the other survivors. This of course caused some of the people to turn against his mother and so she fled the shrine along with a few others who had had enough of the way things were at the shrine by that point. Even though Angelus felt like tearing down the shrine itself for all the monks had done, his training had taught him not to resort to such things when humans were as spiteful as the demons they despised. He was to save this anger for when he faced the real threat.
After stocking up on some supplies they then left the shrine and swore never to return to that place. Instead they both decided to search for his mother and the survivors who had left with her. The journey was long, hard and at times felt hopeless, but it all changed one day they were ambushed. Unfortunately during the fight the priest died but Angelus was victorious and survived, however, it was an empty victory because now the demon child was alone. Since then he has been wondering the land looking for his mother and the survivors, battling any demons he comes into contact with.
