Err...Hello Again
Well, I'm back after what...way over a year or something?
Sadface.
I've found out a bit more about myself, my "angelic family", and a few other things in the bargain, so I might as well reintroduce myself at this point. I'm just gonna copy-paste one of my blog posts here, I think it's pretty specific and accurate. If'n y'all have any questions, pipe up, I'm not afraid to answer.
Oh, and my physical health has gone completely down the toilet as of summer 2008, so...if I don't post for a while, I'm probably too sick to crawl over to my computer, as usual.

My name is Sachael ("sah-kay-el" or Sachiel "sah-kee-el"). You can call me Sachael, Sachiel, Sach, my nickname AngelKat, or just use my human name Kate. I am an angel of the Abrahamic tradition; more accurately, Christian in denomination. If you want to get into specifics, I am of the cherubim: four-winged angels (often with a feline aspect) residing in the first level of Heaven, who are excellent singers and warriors. My trueform is humanoid, with four large teal wings (a pair at the shoulderblades and a pair at the waist), green-brown hair, and turquoise eyes. My feline aspect retains the eyes and wings of my humanoid form, but has the body of a jaguar and the coloring of a mountain lion (I also yowl and scream like a mountain lion, though my human body can't do it nearly as well as I'd like it to).
I have a sword called Ne'eth'er'sha'ai, meaning "Song of Heaven". As I remember it, all angels have swords as extensions of themselves, though some are more eager to use them than others. I've been lucky enough to find a fairly accurate physical representation of it, a bushido musashi with a rosewood handle and sheath. I studied under Nahariel, and went on to be assigned to Gabriel for further teaching (as I remember it, all angels learned under a general teacher or two, then were assigned to an archangel for battle or specialized instruction) in language, Reading (knowing the souls, intentions, and thoughts of others), and battle.
I have a secondary personality residing in my mind who goes by the name of Kat. I do not refer to myself as a multiple, as she and I were a single entity at one point. I suppose the best term for her would be "mental construct". Some time during my teenage years, Kat split off from my main persona and became more of a separate individual, as a way to help me relate to and cope with the Children (my term for humans). She is a midway point between my trueself and the human I function as in day-to-day life, and helps my two natures, angel in spirit and human in body, function as a single unit. Occasionally, Kat will fully have control of the body. It happens every now and then.
I've been self-realized for almost three years now, since March of 2007. I had been aware of otherkin for about a half-year before that, but I hadn't figured myself out until March. I'd previously assumed I was some sort of spiritually advanced human at least, a type of feline elf at most, since I've had visions and flashes of psychic intuition for as long as I can remember, and often reacted to stressful or emotionally charged situations with feline grunts, purrs, and hisses. In March, however, I was helping an angelic friend of mine, Nemamiah, research her name and past when I stumbled across my own name and title. I started trembling and crying, and I somehow knew that that name represented me. Ever since then I've been self-aware and remembering bits and pieces of my trueself.
I live with my boyfriend, who identifies as the archangel/seraph Remiel. We met when I was in college back in the fall of 2007, and I moved in with him a few months into our relationship. It took me a while to get back onto my feet (and back into my human family's good graces) after up and abandoning my life to move to a different state with my lover, but I'm now back in school full-time, four days a week, to work towards a medical career.
As of 2008, I've reconnected with my angelic twin sister, Eliah, here in the physical world (as a side note, I've been told by several acquaintances that angelic twins are rare?). Her trueform and mine are almost exactly alike, except her hair is a blue-brown and her wings are several shades darker. Her feline aspect is smaller and spotted, resembling an ocelot. She studied with me under Nahariel, and went on to study healing under Raphael. (I'll try to get Elly to sign up for OKP eventually...my first goal is to get her off her bum, help her get her GED, and get her moved up here to Indiana.)
I was adopted at birth, as both my biological parents were teenagers when I was born. My adoptive family, oddly enough, is entirely human, while my natural family consists of three generations of incarnated angels (including myself) and a good dose of hereditary fae. I recently got in contact with both sides of my natural family. Both sides have fae blood due to my almost pure Scotch-Irish heritage. My father's name is Nahariel, he was previously Fallen but has since burned rubber out of the Hell-realms and reformed himself (I do have several memories of the events leading up to his Fall, which took place during the Second War (to my recall, there are three angelic wars: the first against Morningstar (or "Lucifer") before the physical world existed, the second against Samael and the Nephilim before the Biblical events of the Great Flood, and the third yet to come at the End of all things)). My natural mother is human in spirit, but with a heaping helping of Celtic fae blood. (I came back into contact with my biological family March of last year, and...things are going fairly well. My mother is an atheist of the fairly bitter and rabid variety, though, so she and I don't get along so well. It's awkward.)

Human life....if you want to know, just ask. Some of the members who have been here longer probably remember that whole fiasco when I first moved out to Indiana, blah blah blah, but I'll be happy to fill in anyone who asks.
Oh, I'm back in college, finally. MedTech College, looking to graduate in 2011 with an Associate's degree and license in medical lab technology. After a while at private offices and small hospitals, I want to work in the neonatology ward at the St Francis Hospital down the street from my apartment.

So...I think that's about it, if there are any questions, ask me!
(I do have several explanations of the hierarchy and organization of Heaven and Hell, that I'd like to post eventually, once I get myself settled back in...)

Re: Err...Hello Again
If'n y'all have any questions, pipe up, I'm not afraid to answer.

You know what, I'll hold you to that...
Here's a few that come to mind;

What function does a pair of wings extending from the waist serve? (it just seems like a silly place to put wings)
Referring to human beings is Children can be seen as degrading, a means to raise yourself up above others. Being that you are a human being at least in this lifetime, how do you justify lowering every other human being around you down like that?
"Ne'eth'er'sha'ai" How is this pronounced?
If your angelic sister looks different than you do, then how are you twins? (Also, most angels I know describe having a sibling that is like them in every way, except a couple, similarly to how you described your sister, this would suggest that angelic twins aren't rare at all.)
Have your blood-relatives told you they personally identify as reincarnated angels?
How does hereditary fae manifest? How does that differ from human? Why hasn't that difference been spotted by doctors? If the difference isn't enough to be spotted medically, then how is there a difference at all? If there isn't a difference, then is there fae blood?

Just a couple thoughts.. I'm in an inquisitive mood.

Re: Err...Hello Again
The wings...I'm not quite sure. I think mostly they were for identifying the person as a cherub instead of another choir, and as lower-body shielding during battle. It could possibly have been for extra balance and thrust during flight, but I don't think wings were actually used for flight all that much. I actually haven't given it much thought lately, but that's a good question. I should probably think on that.

The thing with calling humans "Children". No offense intended at all, certainly not. In my belief system, the Abrahamic God created angels first and the humans second (for the most part; there are some younger angels out there, but as a species angels were around first). So the angels are like...teenagers or adults, and the humans are a bit younger, like children. And as humans were the ones chosen to be created "in His image", they'd be His children, the favored ones who can get away with a lot more than we angels ever could due to free will and all that jazz. Sure, angels are His children too, but we're expected to do all the chores and tidy things up after ourselves...humans can run around and play a bit more. We're like...the ones who already went off to college and got jobs, while the humans are still able to be carefree and run around at recess. Angels may be "older", but humans are higher up on the totem pole (it's like you're working at NASA as a desk clerk, and your younger brother is an astronaut...sure, your job is amazing just being there, but the kid gets to do all the amazing stuff). To me, it's a very affectionate and respectful term. And I'm quite proud to be living as one of them.

It's said "neh (short stop)ETH (pause) air (slight pause) shah (short stop)EYE". The short stops are like..catching the end of the word in your throat.

We do look very similar, and the differences are slight. The differences are cosmetic, really, by her own choice. It's like the difference between an Alexis Bledel with black-brown hair wearing a blue shirt and an Alexis Bledel with black hair wearing a minutely-different-shade-of-blue-shirt. My wings are this color and her wings are this color....well, as close as I could get with the font colors available here. And mind you, twins don't necessarily look exactly alike (hence the difference between identical twins and fraternal twins), the main idea is that they were born at the same time...or in our case, created at the exact same time.
And as for being rare, I'd heard different things from different people. Some say they're rare, some say not, but until I figure out personally either way, I'm just gonna stick with "some people say it's rare, but I'm open to suggestions".

My papi, yes, he's told me he identifies as one. And I'm taking his word that my grandfather told him, because you can't exactly ask the dead. <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->

About hereditary fae. Dang it all, I had thought up a really good theory for that last night because I figured someone was going to ask, but I forgot it overnight. So, redux. Take two. Not nearly as precise and well-worded as I'd like, but the theory itself is still there.
Way way way way back when, Celtic fae may have interbred with the humans of that area, while in human or human-like form. That has resulted in a predisposition to the Sight and other paranormal phenomena people of Celtic descent often claim is common, and a rather "otherworldly" facial and body structure (the big wide eyes, delicate bone structure, etc). There's no actual genetic difference as far as I know, just a rather specific look and predisposition to paranormal things.
This was something I'd always just accepted as true as a child. It just popped into my head one day and stuck there: that in some way, I was linked to "otherworld Ireland/Scotland" through my family tree.
Again, probably something I should give more thought to, but haven't gotten around to yet.

That's an interesting usage - "Scotch" is a somewhat insulting term when used for Scottish/Scots people, except in a few communities - though it is of course appropriate for eggs and whisky. May I ask where you're from? I love meeting people with unusual dialects <!-- sBig Grin --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- sBig Grin -->

Re: Err...Hello Again
From what I read (as soon as I found out I was Scottish as well as Irish, I had my nose in the books and websites), the term "Scotch" was more widely used in the 16th century and has largely gone into disuse. And I love me my vintage vocab, I just love words that have died out or changed. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
And besides that, I'm a bit of an alcoholic <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? --> so I might as well call myself after a drink while I'm at it!
As far as I've been able to find out, my dad's clan is from the Lowlands in Scotland, and my mom's is from Ireland. (Interesting story, that. One of my friends is a direct-line descendant of Robert the Bruce. She and I had a running joke on Facebook that she was my minion, because she'd always be the first to reply to any of my posts. Then I found out that clan Kirkpatrick served the Bruce. So I'm actually her minion. HAH!)
I live in the States, of course, but for some blasted reason I tend to take on various accents when I get riled up. I either get more redneck (yes, I do throw in "y'all" and develop a decidedly country twang) or more Irish. And I don't for the life of me know why. <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

Ahh, okay. Just as a heads up, most Scottish people find the word "Scotch", when used to refer to people, somewhat offensive. Ranging from a mild annoyance to a full blown alcoholic ranting rage, heh. As the mnemonic goes, "Scotch" refers only to things which can be bought - such as eggs, whisky, and politicians.
