Angels of Death
Okay and just out of curiosity where in this celestine hierarchical system does the angel of death set or even wrath who is said to act as the grim reaper to the particularly bad souls when they're corporeal bodies happon to die?

Re: Orders Of the Clestial Hierarchy
Which one? The Angel of Death is more like the flavour of the week at an Ice Cream parlour, its identity is constantly changing from place to place and time to time. This is why details are important. The Angel of Death as recorded in Enoch is different from the Midrash Angel of Death, which is different from the Luranic Angel of Death, which was different from the Sephardic Angel of Death, from the Christian one before the 16th century which was different from the Christian one after. If you actually knew which Angel and which hierarchy you're talking about it's not that hard to place them.

Re: Orders Of the Clestial Hierarchy
A fair response I'm thinking of a specific look long dark brown robes red eyes long black hair scythe made of bones a pale horse a friendly disposition but still firm in doing the job especially if its the end of a species female does this sound at all familiar?

Re: Orders Of the Clestial Hierarchy
I always find it odd to think that there's only one angel of death...I'd think that the job would be far too involved for one being to do it alone.

Closer to reality then you might think seraphyna but I like how this is heading.

The "reality" part is debatable. Since the existance of angels can't be proven, let alone angels of death, all we have is UPG's and various beliefs and religious texts.

Re: Orders Of the Clestial Hierarchy
True enough but point in my last comment was simply that no matter the species no one man or woman can do any job by them self especially the levying of souls and bringing through deaths jaws and into the next world.

Not in the slightest. It matches none of the classical descriptions of any Angel, death or otherwise. Sounds like random UPG at best, or anime at worst.

Agreed. I know someone will probably wangst about me underestimating Angels and all, but... nearly 110 people die every minute, that's almost 2 a second. That's just humans. An estimate 266,400 animals are killed every minute just for food. (No, this isn't a vegetarian thing, I had bacon wrapped porkchops for breakfast, just stats on food animals are easier to track) Then wild animals on top of that. Then the fact that we're limiting this idea to Earth...

Seriously though, even two people a second is a lot to handle. Perhaps this is why in some traditions the Angels of Death either worked for "tribes" or other groupings, or there were a lot of them underneath some chthonic figure. Anyways, where the Angel of Death (which one?) fits into the hierarchy, and the singular nature of them is neither here nor there, so probably should limit the derailment.

Re: Angels of Death
I am curious about the angels of death but my main interest is the rider if the pale horse death as the horseman was named.
