Before the death of the gods of The World, Angels were those who loyally served the gods as their servants, heralds, messengers, and nearly all roles, as heavenly spirits closest to them. The few that survived the fall of the gods however, fell down to the earth, and realized their master's demises. Only left to shade of the dying world, The Shadow's influence did they unknowingly embrace, and become subject to its evil will. Whether it be an extreme grudge of hatred towards mortals, or to realize the revival of the gods again by any means necessary, Angels are now as active as a threat as monsters that plague the wild.
