Power (Art by Aw Anqi)

Powers are the sixth of the nine orders of angels, also said to be called Authorities.

Description

They are academically driven and are concerned with ideology, philosophy, theology, religion, and documents pertaining to those studies. Powers are the brain trusts; a group of experts who serve as advisers and policy planners. They are also the warrior angels created to be completely loyal to God.

Overview

It is said that they were the first order to be created. The Powers are the bearers of conscience and the keepers of history while also acting as warrior angels when the circumstances arise. They are also said to keep watch over the Axis Mundi thereby policing the passages that connect Heaven and Earth.

Due to being warrior angels, they are often thought as the choir most responsible for thwarting Hell's machinations, basically being the force that counteract the demons who relentlessly endeavour to pull the world into darkness. As such they are the choir that make up the majority of the Heavenly Host, defending creation from evil and maintaining order and equilibrium.

Some believe that no Power has ever fallen from grace, but another theory states that Satan was the Chief of the Powers before he fell. Their duty is to oversee the distribution of power among humankind, hence their name.
