Technically yes. Gabriel is never mentioned as a archangel in the Bible, but he is in the intertestamental sources like the Book of Enoch.

He is usually regarded as a messenger angel.

I always wondered where do things like "Paradise lost" fit in with accepted lore? For example, is the creation of Lilith something that is even referenced in the bible or is she only side fiction?. . . Like an OC?

I feel like I should know this but my religious education consisted entirely of making us watch movies then write about how whatever religion was represented. Although something tells me that an extensive knowledge of religious literature would be absolutely pointless in regards to this comic.

It would be pointless to this comic. I'm guessing that much of it is going to be a generalized view to grasp a larger audience.

Paradise Lost isn't considered a canonized work. It's someone's interpretation and hope to convince men about the ways of God, in particular why his actions are so.

Lilith, I have no idea. There's mentions of her in the Bible, Isaiah 34, I think, but I know nothing of her character.

I had read that she was created by Saten to become a mate to Adam before god created Eve, but my parents had never heard of such a thing and were convinced I was making things up so I wasn't sure where it was based.
