When the world was created, there
were five Angels doing the will of the Creator, shaping and molding the society
that existed out of the cradle. Those five were Michael, Gabriel, Raphael,
Uriel and Morningstar.
Once the world of Man left it's
cradle, the mission changed from one of trailblazing for the Humans, to guiding
the Humans to their eventual destinies.
But something went wrong.
The Angels were not without their
flaws. Michael was distrustful. Gabriel was too tolerant.
Rafael was too forgiving. Uriel was obsessive. And Morningstar was
It was a confrontation between
Morningstar and The Creator that broke the original Cadre. The Creator
punished Morningstar for his envy by forcing him to wear a three pointed crown,
and banished him to the Earth.
To prevent any further corruption to
the Cadre, The Creator introduced the Infinite Secretarial Pool to distance
himself from the Angels. Through the Pool, all his orders were relayed.
Through the Pool, the Angel's reports were given to The Creator.
replace Morningstar, the first of the Human Angels was recruited. A young
female warrior named Hanna, who had died during a hunt. After substantial
training, she was accepted into the Cadre.
On Earth, Morningstar's rage and envy
at the Cadre grew until he corrupted, creating the first of the Shadows.
Proudly displaying his crown, he began to taint the hearts of Humans. His
legions grew faster than the Angels could handle.
Shadow Society existed for Morningstar alone. He was to be the owner of
Man, his Shadows were to be his lieutenants.
While two more Human Angels, Naasir
and Ridhaa, were recruited to take care of the Shadows and the Humans, The
Angels were soon outnumbered by the corrupted humans. With the Shadows
running rampant on Earth, the fate of Man was in jeopardy. It was Hanna
that suggested the idea of the Lesser Angels.
The Lesser Angels were recruited from
Humans after their deaths. With training, the Lesser Angels could fight
the Shadows and guide the Humans on a more personal - albeit more temporary -
level, while the True Angels could work on more permanent solutions to the
crisis facing them.
The back and forth battle lasted for
millennia, and as the population grew, so did the Angels. The Lesser Angels
became so numerous, and the population of Earth so large, that other Humans were
inducted into the Cadre of True Angels, as they now called themselves, to help
the daily administration of Lesser Angels, Humans and The Shadow Wars.
But as of late, the Shadows seem to
have had advance knowledge of the Angel's plans. And their numbers are
growing despite the their recent losses....
