Playing an Angel
Angels exist as expressions of the AstralSea, sentient energy in humanoid form. Theymost often serve the gods, so some believethat the gods created them. In reality, angelsare powerful astral beings who appeared duringthe first moments of the creation of the astralsea. Different types have different callings,called choirs; they are literally manifestations of celestial vocations. Perhaps it was the needs of the gods that caused the astral stuff to spewthem forth, but it was not a conscious act of creation. Angels come in three major choirs:Warrior, Messenger, and Protector. During thegreat war between gods and the primordials,angels offered themselves as warriors to thegods that best encompassed their calling, andtoday they continue to act as mercenary forcesfor anyone willing to meet their price-be itwealth, power, or a cause worthy of their attention.
