Money can't buy happiness, but it can pay the bills and buy the new Pokemon game, and that's pretty dang close.

If anyone is familiar with the Daeva race and how they are structured, they will note that the Daeva Host is a thing that might maybe should be played. These slots are mostly all up for adoption, so here are their names, and anything we have already established for them in place, if anyone was interested in playing part of the Host. The Host are probably on at least tentative terms with the Desert Storm and the Drago di Napoli, as the two covens will not trust them immediately. If one is creating an older daeva, most likely, they will be below one of the Generals' vague jurisdiction, and this can have notable impact on how they're perceived.

Azrael and the Warlords on his side tend to enforce inane rules; such as not falling in love, just in general, but especially not one's focus. That is almost the only law, don't love, because it's unnatural, unhealthy, a trap, a distraction, any reason you can think of, they use it. Telling someone what you are, trying to return to life before you died, or somehow speaking against the Council, will also end in the Warlords deciding you're "fallen." By this they mean they damage one's wings and throw them off Maharaja. Many die this way, but some don't, and if they still hear the Light, he may intervene.

Warlords

Gabriel

> 1,000 | Female | European | Fire Affinity
Follows Azrael. Hot-tempered. Known to randomly lash out at her Generals. Fought in the Daeva Wars ( a historical event in which the Daevas almost split into two races ). Probably a ginger.

Michael

> 1,000 | Male | Middle Eastern | Earth Affinity
Follows Azrael. Stubborn and deliberate. Can be somewhat obstinate and blind to reason when he's made up his mind. Fought in the Daeva Wars. Not easily annoyed, just also not easily swayed.

Kamael

~ 800 | Male | Asian | Dark Affinity
Hasn't decided one way or another about Azrael. Thoughtful and subtle. When he makes his moves, he makes them in a way that is barely notable. Slippery one when he tries.

Samael

~ 890 | Male | South Asian | Light Affinity
The only Warlord that still answers the Light. Perpetually put-upon and strung out. Deigns to keep himself and his Generals on earth, where Azrael would really have to try to get to them. Fortunately, none of his have "fallen."

Azrael

> 2,000 | Male | Roman | Air Affinity, but for some reason he uses Light.
* Not actually adoptable, dragonborn made him. Bit of a sociopath. Also kind of a sadist. Fascinated by pain and torment in ways that are quite unhealthy and fairly disturbing. To the letter law-obiding. You can pin stuff on him, but you better be real good a gumshoe to do it. His magic feels like the Light's, for some reason.

These, most likely, would have "civilian" names that they go by, to blend in. Some may not, depends. The Warlords may no longer bother trying to blend in with the living. Most Daevas will know when faced with the Light ( either Kassander Essair, it'd probably be stronger with him, or Natalia Vasilyeva ). Much like vampires have an innate connection to Sati and Surya, Daevas have an innate connection to Kassander and Natalia. Whether they recognize this connection or not depends on whether they're actually Fallen or not.

The Generals are completely open to interpretation; they're just names, but should probably be younger than their Warlord. While they do use the names of actual angels in Christian biblical mythos, we did not really base the daevas on Christian mythology, so, yeah, I know, weird, I'm giving you the names, but asking you not to lean too Judeo-Christian. If you want a "bad angel," follow Azrael. If you want a "bad angel that finds his/her way back to the Light," follow Azrael and then start using brain function. If you want a "good angel," follow Samael.
How we walk with the broken speaks louder than how we sit with the great.
