Angels hail from the Astral Sphere originally, where they were birthed to serve the gods as soldiers. Today though many are in the service of the gods quite a few have taken up the life of a Sphere travelling mercenary, serving any whom they wish, be it for wealth, power, or a cause.
Angels, who range from Human-like to Ogre-like in size, are not so much physical beings as mana given form. This form is vaguely humanoid, with varying degrees of similarity to mortals. Most angels have only the most basic masculine or feminine features, with lower bodies trails off into floating energy. Angels have a number of unique abilities granted to them by their nature. All angels are capable of at least limited flight, often being capable of much more, flying more speedily even than they walk.
