Angels

 

Angels as divine messengers

Here is a link to my previous post on Gods and Immortals

If there are multiple gods, do all of them have their own angels?
>If not, which ones do?
>>How is it decided?
>>Do other gods ever borrow another’s angel to deliver a message?
>Do they like working for the god/s they are employed by?

What kind of messages do they give?
>Just words?
>>Cryptic or easily understood?
>Do they also deliver gifts?
>Items or abilities?

Do angels have any special abilities?

How do they get from where the gods are to where they are supposed to deliver the message?

What do they look like?

 

Angels as a species

Who decided that they are angels?
>Is “angel” a specific species (including subspecies), or is it a term given to anything non-human and non-animal?
>>Are angels magical or mundane? Meaning, were they created by magic, or did they simply evolve into existence like everything else?
>Why “angel”?
>>Was it a religion that had a part in classifying them?
>Is there a difference between the word “angel” and the word “demon” in your setting?

Are they intelligent?
>Do they have a government?
>A hierarchy?
>A language?
>A culture?
>A religion?
>What do they call themselves?
>Do they get irritated when people call them angels?

Are they innately good, evil, or neutral? If you’re wondering why something evil would be called a angel, you should look into the motives of the group that classified the species as such.

Are there different subspecies of angels?

What do they look like?
>Are they bipedal?
>How do they move?
>What shape are their pupils?
>How many limbs do they have?
>What colors are they?

Can they use magic?

What do angels eat?
>If they are omnivorous or carnivorous, what are their hunting techniques?
>>Is their prey smaller than they are?
>>Do they take down larger game?
>>>Do they work as a group or by themselves?
>>What part of their prey do they strike first?
>>How often are their hunts successful?
>>Or do they just buy their meat from a grocery store?
>>>If an angel does this, do the other angels look down on them?
>>If they eat carrion, how rotted can the meat get before they can no longer consume it? Fun little bit of information on this post going around tumblr.

Are angels nocturnal?
>Diurnal?
>Crepuscular?
>Cathemeral?

Are angels hunted by humans?
>For sport, food, or reward?
Are they hunted by any other species?
>For sport, food, or reward?
