NGE sources. Should probably note somewhere where those "symbols" actually come from, too... I'd wanted to turn the "N/A" for Lilith and Adam into actual omitted rows, but I never got around to figuring out how to do that.
The name that seems unresolvable to me is Tabris, simply because I've never come across a name of an angel like that.
"Tabris" (that exact spelling) has an entry right in A Dictionary of Angels. None of the alternate spellings are mentioned (which is strange, since DoA usually has a boner for those).

Since "Tabris" apparently does show up in the literature using that actual spelling, I doubt it.
Also, Manga and Chronicle were hardly the first places. The Vol. 7 tankouban was released in 2001 ("Tabris" appeared in the last collected phase). In contrast, the Newtype Book Adam: Soldier at the 2015 A.D. (lol), includes "Tabris" and was published as early as 1996/10/15. There may have been earlier mentions, but I don't have any handy. For all I know, it was first published in a Newtype article.
