General Overview

Angels are creatures composed of light and holy fire by the universe—what some would call God—from the primordial muck known as the prim and the chrism, which would someday form into what is known as the Source.

Angels were meant to serve the universal forces in many capacities (see classes below for services). As a gift for eons of service the angels were granted free will, this led to the great rebellion and fall of one-third of their population as well as the creation of the Nephilim, which some view as a massive mistake. Due to the free will bestowed on them, Angels like humans have many different personality types. They never lost sight of their main objective to serve and protect the realms from the forces of darkness.

They have no corporeal form, so when traveling from their celestial abode to other realms, they are given human-looking shells. If the shell sustains too much damage or dies, the Angel occupying it is transported back to the heavenly realms.

Humans have made several embellishments about their true forms. Some said they have four heads, one being a lion, twelve wings, and being of gigantic stature. The only truth to these depictions is the wings, but they have only two. If damaged or ripped off, they will grow a new set.


  • Guardian: Most common class of Angel. They are often invisible protectors and guides, performing miracles, minor and major, for humans. They are overseen by the Archangel Javan.
  • Cherubim: Messengers, inspiration, and musical angels. Spreading messages through arts, entertainments, speeches, and music. They are often invisible. Overseen by the Archangel Ramiel.
  • Seraphim: Soldier angels in the army of light, protecting the realms from darkness through combat and balance. They are protectors of police, soldiers, and holy persons. Overseen by the Archangel Cael.


  • Cael. Head Archangel, General of the armies of light
  • Ramiel. Archangel of the Heralds, Divine messenger
  • Javan. Archangel of Travelers, Guardian of mankind
  • Orifiel. Archangel of Souls, Divine retribution (Female)
  • Raziel. Archangel of Judgment and Balance


Human Angel hybrids, often the product of male Angels impregnating female mortals, rarely female Angels being with male mortals. Overseen by the Archangel Raziel, who is often seen as the father of the first Nephilim.
