[attr="class","temp-text"]Angels were considered the most blessed race among the Originals. Their lifespan was exponentially larger than the rest. An Angel's purpose was to "watch over" the Humans. The Angels began splitting into the ones that felt that they needed to protect the humans from afar and the ones that felt they needed to intervene. The ones that protected from afar were called the Watchers and the ones that intervened to protect were called the Protectors.
The Protectors wanted to gain more power to protect the Humans from harm, so they began working with Witches and became Demons.
Key Facts - Draw power from the Light - Their main purpose is to "Watch over" the Humans - Protectors became Demons to gain more power.
[attr="class","temp-text"]Angels, one of the original Races, do not have such an intricate hierarchy such as the Vampires. Angels felt little need for such things, however they were gifted with Markings.
These Markings they considered as a sign from above to differentiate Angels from soon-to-be Demons. The more Markings on an Angels body, the closer that Angel is towards its light element. When Markings begin to disappear, that Angel is slipping towards the darker elements. Once all the Markings are gone, the Angel turns into a Demon.
However, the notion of Light is distorted in Pavane. The Light in completely dependent upon the angel's self-ascribed moral code. When they preform actions that are against this moral code, they grow closer to the Darkness. This gives angelic powers to even those angels with corrupt consciences, though a particularly rare case within the angel community. Because of the differing consciences of angels, it is not uncommon for them to get in intense moral and philosophical debates with one another. The only moral imperative all angels share is the inability to rely on or ask for assistance from the Witches, a clear law set in place by Aheira after the fall of humanity.
When an Angel's Markings are lower than their preferred status, Angels exile that individual to the slums for them to fend themselves until they die or once they regain more of their Markings. It is very difficult to regain Marking after they have disappeared to a certain point, so most Angels look at this sentence as one to their deaths. This decision is frowned upon among Angels due to their natural forgiving state however they have never forgotten the days Demons drained their fellow comrades.
Angels tend to utilize pole arms in conjunction with their divine magick to fight. They are particularly skilled healers in general, but some specialize in more aggressive forms of magick i.e. "smiting". The power of their magickal attacks depend on the amount of markings they have. While pole arms and halberds are the most popular choice for closer combat, Angels with a lower amount of markings will sometimes find less conventional forms of weaponry to master, if at all. Angels with many markings may also have retractable wings, something that can prove especially useful in combat.
Living in a dystopian society, seven mystic races are trapped due to their own selfishness. Tensions rise between the races and the different social classes, leading up to the constant struggle for power, with no end in sight.
