Re: Celestial Roll Call
*Note: what follows is a brief explanation of an aspect of my world-view, and therefore is NOT up for argument, only discussion and explanation. it's what i believe, remember, and understand, and what i have faith in*
the term "Protoangel" is a term that Sahra and I have given to the four beings originally created at the outset of the creation of the universe we currently inhabit (as in, this 'world,' Alaha's latest project, "The Next Big Thing," etc.).
the term is just something we settled on, and the extended version is "prototype angel." there were four, right at the outset, two male, two female. we were created as pure aspects, and gifted with a balance of order and chaos, something that was unique to the four of us (for the most part.)
Alaha cannot touch chaotic energy, but he needed a way to get the stuff out of the way as he spread his Light and built Creation. each of the four were created to help in this aspect. we cleared the way, he filled in the space behind us, effectively bringing order to the chaos.
only problem is, when Alaha showed up, the chaotic energy started to change DRAMATICALLY. this chaos was, as i can best describe it, the stuff that oblivion is made of. you know...chaos energy. it took one good look at Alaha and started to take shape, becoming sentient and HUNGRY. due to this, the four of us had to actually fight the stuff back and protect Alaha even as we cleared the way for His work.
once His work was done (all the Heavens built, enough blank space ready for the planets and such), the four of us parted ways. Sahra became a Messenger after she was struck in battle, though the chaotic residue never left her. i explained what happened to me. the other male, Helel, became one of the big three head honchos in the Aerie, the other two being his most promising students (Michael and Samael). the other female, Anael, later became Eve.
there's MUCH more to it than that, and Sahra can word it better than i can, but yeah...that's what a Protoangel is. it's a word to assign to the earliest phase of existence for Helel, Anael, Sahra and myself. the true title, if there is one, is lost to us, and it wasn't permanent either, really. Helel became an Archangel, Ana a psychopomp, Sahra a messenger and me...a hobo.
