Protection (Italian: Protezione) is the sixth episode of the first season of the animated series, Angel's Friends. It was originally broadcasted in Italia 1 on October 19, 2009.
The Tall Spheres in Angie Town are evaluating the angels while Arkhan gives them insights into the better qualities of each of his angel students. At the same time the Low Spheres in Sulfur City are doing the same with the devil students.
Before he leaves, Arkhan warns the angels that though school is not in session and was closed for the weekend, they still must guard and protect their earthly ones. But, the temptations to play with each other and to waste time with the devils leads Raf and her friends into trouble. Sulfus tries to confront Raf while in human form which presents difficult choices for the young angel. This is an action they are forbidden to perform.
Also, Maliki releases the spider in the halls of the Golden School. Taking advantage of the absence of the teachers, Arkhan and Temptel, Angels and Devils challenge each other in the Challenge Room. At one point, Sulfus decides to challenge only Raf: transformed into humans, they follow each other around the school, until they reach the old chamber of the Portraits Room, which contains all the portraits of all the humans (Earthly Ones). There, the two Eternals are bitten by the spider.
Teaching that temptation may lead to trouble.
Teaching that one must have strong values and follow them no matter how difficult it might be.
Raf: "Everything needs protection. Babies that have just been born and those that they're still waiting to come into the world. Things that are worth a fortune and those that are free, everything needs to be taken care of. Everything worth while needs to be protected from danger and no one knows that better than those in charge at the task. And that is why we're here to learn to defend the Earthly Ones from our enemies."
