Iblis appears as a giant, turtle like Angel with no rear legs and a long tail. Its head extends from the front of its shell on a fairly long and flexible neck. While there are ridges where the eyes would seemingly be, Iblis has no eyes in its skull, instead possessing a single yellow eye on the tip of a long tongue. Its shell alone is larger than an Evangelion, but despite this hard exterior its Core seems to be kept at the end of its tail away from the main body.
According to the scenario in the White Paper it is first encountered by Nerv’s Russian branch in the part of Siberia near the border with China. The attempt to contain the Angel by Russian forces fails miserably due to the Angel’s combat abilities being beyond what they were expecting. During the battle it is shown that each of the three bumps on the Angel’s shell each generate a separate AT-Field that can be used either together as a triple layered defense or they can be interwoven to generate an Aurora like resonance attack that can strike multiple targets. Further adding to the difficulty in combating this angel is the fact it can burrow underground and most distressingly of all it manages to absorb the energy of a new type of N2 weapon the Russian branch tries to destroy it with thus making itself stronger. After trouncing the Russian branch in Siberia it then proceeds to destroy the city of New Vladivostok before crossing the sea to Niigata and then swinging toward Matsushiro and then Tokyo 3.
- Artwork of Iblis displays it appearing out of the ocean much like Sachiel from the TV series.
- In Islam, the Devil is known as "Iblis".
- The design for the new version of Third Angel from the Eva Rebuild series bears some resemblance to this angel due to its serpentine neck and large shell. Further like Iblis it is also first encountered by the NERV Russia branch.
