After more than a century of murder and the torture of innocents, Angel’s restored soul torments him with guilt and remorse.
Angel moves to Los Angeles, California, after it’s clear that his doomed relationship with Buffy, the vampire slayer, cannot continue.
He works as a private detective in L.A, where he and a variety of associates work to “help the helpless”, restoring the faith and saving the souls of those who have lost their way

He soon finds himself assisted by Allen Francis Doyle, another Irish character who is a half-human, half-demon who, although he comes across as a ne’er-do-well hustler, has a heroic side.
Doyle serves to pass along the cryptic visions from The Powers That Be to Angel.
They’re soon joined by Cordelia Chase.
Formerly a popular high school cheerleader, Cordelia starts her tenure on the show as a vapid and shallow personality, but grows over the course of the series into a hero.
