HEAVEN


the heavenly host of angels has been around for a long time; since the dawn of time, they say, but historical records of those ages have been purged. but still, heaven continues on in its duty: protecting humans, earth and other wayward souls, whilst also combatting the scourge that is hell and its demons.

heaven is ruled by a group of seven angels: archangels. below them are the seraphs, esteemed warriors akin to knights. further still are the second and third spheres, equal in rank to each other, made up of all other angels and angelic creatures. the second sphere focuses on the work behind the scenes, such as healing, record keeping and the guidance of wayward souls, while the third sphere is made up of those trained to fight and carry out heaven's work, be it to kill demons, or dispense judgement upon the sinners.

angel names


Though Angels have a variety of names taking after various cultures from earth there are a few traditional names specific to heaven itself, each with their own meaning. These names aren't required for an angel but are listed below for ease and reference. The names of the original seven Archangels are considered sacred and are no longer used. The name Lucifer has been burned from the books and is no longer in use.

i can start us off with some heaven lore discussion! I randomly thought up of some headcanons a while ago and can dig them up
  • Angels reproduce with each other spiritually rather than sexually (think brain babies!) thus corporeal sex, especially with a non angel is deemed needlessly lustful, irresponsible, impure, etc.
  • As such, the true, spiritual form of an angel is sexless and Angelic culture has an extremely loose concept of gender. In ancient times, having a gender was believed to be below an angel, for mortals, and angels attached to the concept were shunned. These days, however, it’s common for an angel to have a preferred gender or sex when taking a corporeal form, even sticking to it while in a spiritual form. Some feel inclined to use the same gender for all their earth trips, others shift as desired or as needed for their missions. Many angels, however, especially those who don’t visit earth often, still find gender and sex difficult concepts to grasp and some feel disdain for those ‘sullying’ heaven with such earthly trends.
  • Angelic reproduction is dependent on the power within an angel’s halo: it takes three third sphere angels to reproduce or two second spheres. Archangels can create new angels with their own power. The exception to this rule of thumb are seraphim, who also reproduce monogamously, as if they were in the second sphere. Intersphere relationships (and reproduction) are seen as a huge taboo in angelic culture, almost (but not quite) as shameful as having a relationship with a non-angel.
  • alternatively, for better or worse many angels may try to compare spheres to sex or gender, first second and third sphere angels have their own stereotypes much like male, female and nonbinary humans (though there is no clear parallel connecting each sphere specifically to a gender).
  • It takes a village to raise an angel. Though they still exist, family units aren’t as stressed in heaven as they are on earth. Angels mature very quickly and oftentimes an angel will feel closer to mentors than to parents. If given the choice between family and duty, an angel is expected to choose duty and brotherhood and camaraderie is stressed regardless of blood relations (blood of the covenant is thicker than water of the womb, after all) .
  • Much like how demons aren't the only beings to live in hell, angels aren't the only species living in heaven (though they are the most common)

a list of angel names has been added! not required by any means but i figured it'd be a nice resource~

and bc i have no self restraint another headcanon: Angels that see the battlefields are trained in multiple fighting techniques and Angelic weaponry is crafted with notorious care. It's customary for them to give their weapons unique names inspired by various different languages from latin, to mandarin, to old norse
