Angels by humon Angels by humon

This is not meant to be educational. I've studied angels for years and took things from various theories and added some of my own and ended up with this for my story. If you want something closer or further away from traditional angels, make you own.

Their job is to act as guarding angels for humans, or simply deliver messages from heaven. Because they spend so much time on earth, they are by far the most human, and they don't have a strong need to return to God after their job is done. As a result they suffer from a lot of the same things as humans, such as confusion, doubt, sadness, temptation, and even lust. However, they try to stay chaste and are proud to be virgins.
Everything is very personal and about their human to them, and they will sometimes do immoral things for the sake of the person they watch over.

They are a lot like normal angels, only they rule over them and are a lot more full of themselves. Their true form can be quite scary, and they often have to tell humans "Fear not" when they first encounter them because even in their human-friendly form they still have an aura of something powerful and unsettling about them. They too deliver messages and protect humans, but only holy or otherwise important people.

They protect the religion, and will not take kindly to blasphemy. They also carry out the Powers' orders.

They like to say no angel has ever fallen from their ranks, but non other than Lucifer himself ruled them once. They fight demons and keep them out of Heaven, but they also have power over them and often use demons to do the dirty work they don't want to be blamed for later. Not surprisingly they don't have the best reputation and the Dominions keep a close eye on them.

They mainly help the Dominions and inform the angels what their jobs are.

Rules over all angels under them. They are the highest ranking angels who contact humans fairly regularly, but they are never pleased to leave Heaven and will try to do their job as quick as possible. They don't care for individual humans' faiths, and only see the big picture of things.

Cherubim and Wheels
Have by far the strangest true forms and are closely connected to each other. They always move together as if they were one, and when a Cherub take on a human form, his Wheel appears as a disk on his chest. They have no patience for humans and rarely (if ever) leaves Heaven.

By far the least human. They are the closest to God and only cares for praising him. If they leave his side and take a human form, they will only be looking up towards Heaven, muttering God's name between sentences, and doesn't wear clothes. Not a problem though, because they are sexless.

Sweet. I think it's really cool that you added in the hierarchy like this too. Is there any chance of a comic with these guys?

Very nicely done! I have done a similar thing with my own story, however there aren't many opportunities to highlight the specific classes of angels while keeping the story layman enough for the audience to stay engaged.

These are so nicely done! I'm really surprised- and glad!- that there isn't anyone screaming BLASPHEMY at the top of their lungs, too. Good job! :)

A friend of mine put me on to your stuff. Love this one, I really like it when people do their own take on myth/religion. Cheers for sharing :)

PS. seen a few comments saying these would be better if they weren't 'chibi', but I quite like them this way :) Also like the flow of forms you've created with their angelic aspects overhead. Nicely done.

Would love a demon version of this. This would make a great theme for an anime.

is it possible to create a demon version of this or is there no order system for demons ?
