Angels

Powers:

Angels are immortal and never have the need to sleep nor eat.
They can float effortlessly in the air, teleport instantaneously and summon lightning weaponry at will. Their power is gathered through their wings, which are revealed when in use and otherwise invisible and impalpable. Showing their wings equates to an exhibition of power, a threat.

Each Angel has a personal strength that is unique to the individual's wingspan. The wings also contain a large amount of extra blood which gives Angels a high rate of survival from hemorrhaging wounds.
When seriously injured, an Angel's wings will forcibly appear. Loss of consciousness is the scariest thing that can possibly be done to them. It is inflicted through excessive bleeding, head trauma, poison or extreme pain and the result, if they awake from it, is a complete and irreversible loss of memory. A comatic Angel has no guarantee to wake up at anytime either. Some never awake from the slumber.

Far Past:

A story yet untold.

Past:

While Metatron was in power, he had the Dragon elders and leaders assassinated with the help of a few chosen Angels while the others were kept in the dark. He made up a plague to explain the deaths, calling the Diabolics a carrier of the disease. At that point, Angels were vigorously encouraging Dragons to expel and kill every Diabolic to be seen on land.

Present Times:

Metatron resigned from his position of leadership under the pressure of an alliance between Dragons and Diabolics. Constance took his place as the Source, a function that grants him the ability to pull Seraphon powers from a finite pool and redistribute it in controlled measures to individuals and structures alike, creating a hierarchy of power amongst them.
Agathron

Agathron

With her quiet and obedient nature, she has earned the trust of Metatron and Constance simultaneously. However, she finds Constance to be more reasonable and more kind than his predecessor. She follows his orders in the shadow, carefully.

Constance grants her full Seraphon powers to retrieve Selethriel and minimize the potential damage that Metatron can inflict on the city of Tumpestre : an abandoned Angel structure atop of which Dragonnets built a fort and a temple. Tumpestre contains a Portway that can be used to teleport from there directly to Hanedigue if one is equipped with a Matterforged sword to activate it. Dragonnets have no idea that this technology exists but Diabolics are very much aware of it and have tried to reach it.

Past (From the printed book only):

Agathron participated in the defense of Bethelmere, an Angel death tower that was meant to be used as a trap to destroy the Astorians army by trickery. It was Metatron’s plan but the attack failed horribly, resulting in the complete destruction of the tower and the death of at least one Angel, at which point Agathron began to question the justification behind possessing this kind of destructive powers.

Far Past:

Untold.

Defining Quote:

“...Maybe destruction is not what we should be using our powers for.”
Azazel

Azazel

A mysterious Angel renegade who should have been dead. Constance, before becoming the Source, was sent by Metatron to kill him. Helped by the Diabolics and their immense regenerative powers, Azazel survived his grievous wounds but lost more than half of his skin in the process, making it difficult for him to properly absorb sunlight. He is always hungry and cranky, possibly lazy and selfish as well. He’s not in it for the humanistic ideals.
Something that sets Azazel apart from the others is his long term memory. Like Metatron, he never slept nor lost consciousness. What he remembers about their origins may be of view-altering importance.

Past:

After the murder attempt, Azazel pretended to be dead and hid amongst the Astorians for years. When Evadrion is caught by the Astorians and brought to their camp as a prisoner, he meets with her and wins her over. They allied together with the Diabolics against Metatron’s oppressive strategies. He seemed contented to destroy or disable the remaining Angel death towers and weaponry and tried to discourage Evadrion from demanding Metatron to be destitute. He went along nonetheless.

Far Past:

Azazel has been Metatron’s sworn enemy for as long as one can remember. They seem to be entirely incompatible in their views and the death wish is reciprocal.

Defining Quote:

“What if Metatron asked you something you couldn’t come to term with?”
Constance

Constance

He unwillingly took Metatron’s place as the Source to satisfy the general demand for diplomacy. Despite his position, Constance’s hands are tied by a compromise that he made with him.

Indeed, Constance and Evadrion were lovers for hundred of years. When she turned against them, Constace was forced to choose between putting her down or putting her to sleep. Inevitably, she has no recollection of their past relationship and he accepts that, doing his best to keep her away from trouble.

He is uncertain about Metatron’s true intentions. Because he, too, was put to sleep long ago, Constance feels that he is missing important pieces of the truth and cannot take a definite side against or for Metatron’s plans. He does his best to mitigate his wrath toward the Diabolics and others.

Past:

Long before Evadrion’s betrayal, Constance was secretly ordered by Metatron to kill Azazel with a Matterforged sword. He unknowingly failed to deliver.

Far Past:

Yet untold.

Defining Quote:

“Everything is under control.”
Evadrion

Evadrion

Focused and eager to serve, she is trained by Metatron, taught to kill the Diabolics willy-nilly with no regard for them.
She effectively murders a Heytorian during her training but something is off. She notices a great tension between Metatron and Constance and begins to question the leadership.

Past:

She has a history of following orders through completion and almost fanatically. Convinced that the Plague was true and wanting to preserve the Dragonnets from its dangers, she spread the false message to many corners of the world, including the fishermen’s village where Eithne was born. She’s been one of Metatron’s best commanders.

Evadrion is caught by the Astorians and met with Azazel. Finally confronted with reality, the lies are revealed to her. Tricked and betrayed, she fought hard to right her wrong by forcing Metatron to leave his position of power and succeeded by allying all the Diabolics together with the Southern Denjeonic Dragons.

This deed accomplished, Evadrion was put to sleep by Constance, her previous mate, with a treacherous kiss. Now she has to start over.

Far Past:

Untold.

Defining Quote:

“Remind me never to kiss you again!”
Falkron

Falkron

He’s been asleep in Hanedigue for at least several millennia. It’s been so long that no one remembers the kind of person he really was, except maybe for Metatron, who doesn’t speak about him.
He’s been left half-naked to bath in the sun every day for his health to be preserved.

Past:

Falkron doesn’t have a past, only a very long coma.

Far Past:

Falkron was once a free thinker. Sent by Metatron to retrieve the rotten ships, he found Heytor’s and, realizing that she had not turned into the monster that he had been warned about, decided to save her from a certain killing by teleporting her and her ship away. They hid in this way for over fifty years, living as a couple. Their offspring came to be the Heytorians.

Defining Quote:

“I don’t want to forget you, that’s all.”
Hydron

Hydron

Lacking respect and empathy for others, even his fellow Angels know to be wary of him. He can barely confine his sadistic tendencies and always toying with the limits of what is an acceptable behavior.

He is the one who was ordered to discreetly murder the Dragonnets elders all over the world. He notably showed up in a few places to spread the message of their authority as well, including Eithne’s hometown when she was a little girl. She remembers his face well.

Past:

Hydron has always been shitty like that.

Far Past:

Untold.

Defining Quote:

“Whatever.”

Metatron

Currently, he is Evadrion’s improvised mentor. He wears the honorific title of Father of Angels and is known to be the oldest creature alive on earth, claiming he never closed an eye and remembers all. It might be true but for all others that information is lost and cannot be disproved.

Intelligent, charming and ruthless, Metatron is also a bully and a liar. He is convinced that the Diabolics need to be wiped out and is putting all his capacity at that task, no matter the cost. In theory he should be serving Constance but the relationship between them is murky. Metatron obeys when it’s convenient for him to do so and considering his size and individual power, it’s difficult to tell him otherwise.

Past:

Metatron is used to being in charge. He selected Constance to replace him after his destitution was pressed forward by renegade Angels, Diabolics and Dragons together agreeing for it but he can hardly pretend not to be in charge still.
He puts immense pressure on Constance to do what he judges to be more right or fair and does so from an argument of authority.

Far Past:

Untold.

Defining Quote:

“Constance, am I leading the world astray?”

Selethriel

Distrustful of Metatron's intention and loyalty, Ravan hired this red-eyed guy at his court instead of his assigned Angel counselor. As it turns out, the supposedly Heytorian dude is an Angel in disguise. Selethriel is highly interested in the archival past and borderline obsessed with the amputated wing trophee exhibited in the temple in Tumpestre. He is also genuinely concerned about Ravan's safety but reports to Constance nonetheless. The Grainne doesn't know that she is after him.

Selethriel remembers what happened with Evadrion’s rebellion and is ennerved as much by Hydron as he is by the tension between Metatron and his competition in Constance.

Past:

His red eyes may be the result of a permanently bleeding injury, possibly caused by a Matterforged weapon.

Far Past:

Untold.

Defining Quote:

“I think the Diabolics are a reminder not to take ourselves too seriously!”
