Divinity War Worlds: Zion
The planet Zion is home to the race of Celestians, more commonly known as angels. Angels lack the intense curiosity of humans and possess a disposition uniquely given to strict obedience and unquestioned, objective justice. Content to keep to the known and the true, angels have inhabited the halls of the creator since the beginning of recorded history.
Whether a quirk of evolution or as a mark of their holiness gifted by the creator, angels possess wings which emerge later in life as a psycho-genetically triggered sign of self-mastery.
The Legend and Mystery of Zion:
The planet Zion orbits the Prime Star, the birthplace of life in the galaxy. All races have sought to return to the bosom of the creator and to dwell among the choirs of holy angels.
Of all the myths and lore of the twelve worlds, the identity of the angels is undeniably the most commonly speculated upon. Appearing in wheels of fire enfolding themselves, in portals of light, or in flashes of lightning, angels have been the emissaries of the creator to the twelve worlds. But a millennium has passed since there has been any credible record of contact with the angels of Zion.
Not much is known about the wings of angels. It is not known whether the feathers of the wings are related to those of birds or the tufts of feather-like hair behind the ears of Xahnans. Theories abound. Anatomical analysis suggests that angels would be capable of gliding but not ascent. The extent to which angels access technology or metaphysical sources of power, such as Xahnans wield, is not known. Some have postulated that all humanoids contain the angel gene, but they simply lack the self-mastery to unlock it.
Angels are capable of merciless destruction in the name of justice, as well as acts of unspeakable mercy, an enigma that has puzzled humans since the dawn of recorded history.
It is believed that angels dwell on lofty peaks where their wings allow them to traverse otherwise inaccessible canyons. The music of their voices and harps fill their spacious halls and recall the stories of ancient deeds. Firm in the task appointed them by the creator, the angels guard a gate of ancient origin, protected by seven seals which can only be opened by seven archangels. What is beyond the gate falls to pure speculation.
