They can be useful but it is good to have a secondary skill and only use heaven/hell skills when they can shine. Someone said that their damage is based on faith, un-truth is based on magic attack and the inverse of faith which makes malak more powerful against enemies w/ low faith and with low faith himself (more on that later). Truth is simply the product of magic attack and a constant multiplier of the specific truth skill, faith is not a factor. Because of this, Rafa's truth skills are a good backup to normal magic when the opponent has low faith (they also take no MP) and Malak's un-truth can do even more damage than truth against enemies with extremely low faith or the faith stat. For un-truth Faith*, not innocent, is taken as 0 faith. Because of this I give him the faith rod, so his faith for un-truth purposes is always 0 and it can also give opponents faith by striking them, although I prefer just casting faith because it is more reliable. Because of faith he also then has a leg up with traditional magic which I like to use as his other skill, especially since un-truth is dependent on MA as well as faith, so I like to give him a magic using job to boost MA. You can make him a hell knight and give him math skill, but I prefer to make him a summoner with un-truth because I like to give him the 108 gems accessory which strengthens all the elements used in un-truth and summoning. Rafa is good in any job with high MA and I like to have regular magic to use generally and use truth when it is an advantage. My personal preference is to make her an oracle because she can use a stick and I don't have another oracle.

They both have interesting backgrounds and a skillset that, while not "powerful," is certainly unique. I always hang on to them so I don't have to use the generic sprites.

Their skillset is a great secondary skillset, and can even be good as a primary skillset. The only exception would be if you're going for the strongest team setup. I guess what I'm trying to say is Rafa and Malak are occasionally useful, but mostly for flavor.
