Zoroastrianism was Yves and Eli dry-running monotheism.(Canon IIRC) So why did Yves set Michael up as Ormazd, the god-head figure for the religion? (non-canon) Maybe so that if the project failed, it would not damage Heaven so much, and Michael was deemed the strongest candidate for surviving any fallout (War is pretty much a self-perpetuating word, with humans involved. Ergo, quick word-recovery.) If Michael willingly accepted the position, surely Dominic would have had kittens (call them Hammurabi, Solomon, or whatever). It would be (in his eyes) a heresy as great as Lucifer's, declaring yourself equal to God. Which is why he tried Michael. Michael now distrusts Yves because it was Yves' idea, and it got Mike in trouble.
If Yves set Michael up as Ormazd, perhaps, just perhaps, he conspired to create Ahriman as well (Yves' level of divine ineffability would probably be powerful enough to obfuscate the Adversary's word). But why would Yves create a powerful and utterly evil force? Solely as a counterpoint to the new religion? Anyone smell too much effort/too little effect, and after all, Ahriman is still around, unlike the religion that he featured in. What is Destiny up to, eh?
As another point, can anyone think of other AAs who might be guilty of creating cults of personality to gain additional Essence. We all know Baal and Belial did so, but would an AA stoop to such a low? Depends how dark you like it, I guess. (Janus would be a good candidate, and Gabriel might sponsor appocalypse cults) Ruminate, cogitate and vomit forth ideas people!
