ABOUT

Diamond angels are masters of life and death. They have an immense knowledge of necromancy, which they use both to protect their allies and to harm their enemies.

Fiends and many other wicked forms of creation capture souls, use them to empower themselves, or simply trade them for more power. Against this unholy threat, diamond angels are tasked with the protection of pure and worthy souls until they reach their final resting place. A diamond angel also seeks captured souls to free them, and to destroy their captor.

Diamond Hammer. A diamond angel carries a special hammer forged of diamond. Although used rarely and only when vitally necessary, a diamond angel can trap souls within this hammer, which makes the hammer shine with a gray light. While trapped in the hammer, a soul does not feel pain and feels like it has found eternal peace.

A diamond angel can only trap a soul when it deems that the soul is in great danger, such as a human being captured by fiends, a lich about to escape when they need to be brought before an angelic court, or another extreme situation.

Divine Creation. A diamond angel is an angel and doesn’t require food, drink, or sleep.
