A throne (pl. thrones) is an angel of the Third Choir of the First Sphere. They are also known as erelim or ophanim, and are the embodiment of God's justice.


In Heaven, thrones have a body that most closely resembles a wheel within a wheel, with hundreds of eyes lining the rim. No angel can display their true form to a mortal without searing the mortal's eyes from their sockets. They may take a human form, with or without a visible set of wings - when their wings are visible they are capable of flight. They may also choose to be invisible and/or intangible (though other angels are still capable of seeing and/or feeling them).

Angels in their natural form have no gender, and even the human forms they adopt are usually fairly androgynous. They can imitate human genders, but in general they don't find it necessary. Angels never age or sicken, and usually can only be harmed by the swords of other angels - however a powerful enough demon can harm an angel with less power.

Magical Characteristics

Thrones channel and direct positive energies flowing in and out of Heaven, whether by sending healing energies or revealing injustice. In addition, they may directly adapt the power of prayer into healing energy, or into twists of fate which reveal evil-doing. They are all-seeing - they know all that has happened and is happening.

Angels can sense emotions empathically. When communicating, angels usually use telepathy amongst each other. They can also speak to others in this fashion. Their true voices are harmful to mortals as well as the minions of Hell, but they can adopt a gentler human voice. All angels can teleport.

By wielding the divine love that they are intimately tapped into, angels can heal mortal sickness and injury. In the same way, angels can exorcise a demon from a human body with a single touch, as long as their power is greater than the demon's power.

Like all heavenkin, angels can sense the presence of evil or unholiness.

Society and Habitat

Four thrones carry God's throne. Because of their omniscience and ability to manipulate prayer energy, it is rare to see one out of Heaven, unless on a very important mission from God.
