I don’t know how open you are to Catholic teachings, but here is what we are taught.

My interpretation, based loosely on Catholc and Hebraic traditions:

Since Archangels are spiritual beings, they generally have no gender, but some may exhibit traits that are thought to be masculine or feminine. Although there are said to be seven, the number is certainly higher than that. Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel are usually agreed upon by varying traditions. Some others that appear in several traditions are Ariel, Metatron, Suriel, Raguel, Sariel, Azrael, Jeremiel, Jophiel, Raguel, Raziel, Sandalphon, Zadkiel, Chamuel, and the fallen Lucifer.

Michael is usually known as the Archangel of protection, justice and strength. He is the Chief of the Heavenly Host who led the “good” angels in battle agains Lucifer and the “fallen” angels. He is said to be the one to call upon if you need spiritiual protection or strength.

Gabriel is considered the chief messenger of the angels. It was Gabriel who announced to Mary the Mother of Jesus that she was to bear the Son of God. For this reason Gabriel is considered the Angel of conception or adoption. Gabriel is also considered the patron of communication, art, postal workers, and clergy.

Raphael is the healing Archangel. Laughter is a cure, so Raphael is the Laughing Angel. He is also the patron of physicians and other healers.

Azrael is generally considered to be the Archangel who assists souls with crossing over to heaven, or the “Death Angel.”

There is a lot of information on the internet about Archangels.You might want to check out Crystalinks, and check out some of the links on the Wikipedia article. I supplemented my own knowledge from this website.

@fish4answers Cupids are under the choir of cherubim, I believe. They don’t look like the cute cupid at all.
