* Elohite of Valor: same as Baal's Habbalite of the War attunement.
** Call to Arms: By spending 3 Essence, Haniel can make his teammates more alert. Human allies will lose all fatigue (and will not gain any until the end of the battle.) Sleeping allies awaken in time for combat. Stunned and unconscious allies come out of their stupor. This attunement, unfortunately, cannot bring a celestial out of Trauma prematurely. The attunement has a range of 10 yards in all directions.
*** Vassal of Valor: When faced with multiple opponents, Haniel gains an extra attack for each opponent he faces beyond the first. Beyond three opponents, however, each attack is at -1 Accuracy. He cannot attack more than five times in a round. This only works for opponents he engages in hand-to-hand or unarmed combat.
**** Friend of the Brave: As a Friend of Valor, Haniel's vessels are toughened and can withstand more damage. Each of his vessels have 1.5 x regular body hits.
***** Haniel has learned and used a number of human languages through the years. These are but a few of the modern languages he is known to use. He also knows a great many more skills than these, but is rarely called upon to
Haniel is an ancient Elohite, one of the first and most famous of that
Choir. Like Khalid, Archangel of Faith, Haniel is perceived as,
paradoxically, both cold-blooded and serene. For an Elohite, he's popular
among the Servitors of War, and is very, very well liked by Servitors of the
Sword. Truth be told, he's one of the few members of the Order of the
Eternal Sword who doesn't serve Laurence -- although rumor has it that the
Archangel of the Sword would like to find a way to recruit him from
Baal created him millennia ago and assigned him to work with humans -- to
teach them to fend for themselves in a world they were only beginning to
master. Unfortunately, Haniel discovered that there was more to his work
than mere teaching. The mind of prehistoric man was filled with fantastic
horrors, inadvertently spawning the same beasts in the Marches, and some of
these horrors had learned to walk the earth. Haniel became a demon hunter
in a time before demons, slaying creatures that were the predecessors of
today's ethereal gods, and rose in rank and honor to become one of Baal's
When Baal rebelled against Heaven, Haniel felt a divine fury rise within
him. He denied the anger, refusing the lure of the dark wings...and
learned, for the first time, what it meant to become dissonant. He has
never become dissonant since.
He fought long and hard against his brothers, many of whom had joined Baal
in rebelling against God. Twice in the battle he found himself fighting
alongside the Firstborn, Michael, who smiled grimly upon him and his bloody
work. When the last of the Fallen had been ushered out of Heaven, the new
Archangel of War sought out Haniel and offered him a place in his ranks.
The Elohite accepted without hesitation.
In recent years, Haniel has been spending more and more time in the Groves,
teaching other warriors to fight. He has a special hatred of Baal and
demons of the War, although he (apparently) does not suffer dissonance for
it. From time to time, his responsibilities as a member of the Order of the
Eternal Sword demand his attention...but then he returns to Heaven fairly
quickly. Unlike a lot of Swordies, after all, he has no compunctions about
fighting dirty... and while he may not be Word-bound, his very name is enough
to strike fear into the hearts of most demons.
(Haniel is identified in the APG as a warrior Elohite who distinguished
himself during the Fall. His attunements and Distinctions from Valor are
conjectural. He is not a point-balanced character.)
