Azrael by DativoKane Azrael by DativoKane
Here's the NPC Azrael, for the Tournament of Rings. He's an Angel aspiring to be an Archangel, and he won't let anyone get in the way of him doing his job. He's currently an apprentice of Michael.

He's been assigned to keep track of the Tournament of Rings and the deaths/defeats that occur there.

As an NPC, Tournament of Ring competitors are free to use him as they wish, so long as credit is given.

------

Name: Azrael

Age: 34

Height and weight: 5'11"

Body type: Slender with wiry muscles.

Eyes: Thin, diamond shaped, midnight blue eyes.

Hair: Chestnut-Auburn tied back with a blue hair clip. His bangs and the rest of his hair falls to his shoulders when tied back.

Skin: swarthy; a tan Mediterranean skin tone.

Birthday: May Fifth

Tattoos/scars: None.

Other: Four smaller-than-average silvery-white wings with a tinge of blue. He also has his glasses that are attached with a blue cord. He also has a gold ring on his left ring finger.

Preferred outfits: A dress shirt, black slacks, and dress shoes.

Background: Azrael was an angel from birth. He, however, never looked human, for he wasn't human. His family was very traditional, and didn't see a problem with his monstrous form, however it made things quite difficult for him, for he often scared unprepared people. Upon growing older, he perfected the ability to disguise his appearance into a more socially accepted, humanoid form. He naturally was drawn to the mortals on earth, and after completing his education, became one of the many recorders of life and death on earth. He's now constantly writing in his black book and constantly crossing out what he wrote. Every name he writes is another person being born, every name crossed out is the record of another death in the world.

Natural form: In his natural form, Azrael has 4,000 wings, four faces, and a body comprised of eyes and tongues- one each for each human on earth.

Powers: Able to fly, able to go intangible, and powerful psionic powers.

Will: Logical and analytical, Azrael is very difficult to break. He will deconstruct arguments put against him, and can easily emotionally detach himself from any situation or person.

General personality: Calm and collected, Azrael is never angry and has the patience of a saint.

Maturity: Mature and serious.

Relationship status: Single and Celibate

Values: Azrael holds high praise for his superiors, and pities any fallen comrades. However, death on earth is menial to him, and he sees it as just doing his job.

Quirks and mannerisms: Azrael is often curt and will answer something in the simplest and shortest way possible.

When angry: Azrael hardly gets angry, but when he does, he's a force to be reckoned with, and will try to get rid of the problem the quickest and most efficient way- even if it involves death.

Likes: Order and organizing, quills, anthropology

Dislikes: having to work excessively to get a simple task done, not knowing where things are, people not using common sense.

Strengths: Azrael is very fast when flying, and a very high powered Psionic. He also is unflappable and keeps his cool most all the time, having an emotional composition of steel. Well, unless it comes to his sister, but that's an exception to the rule. In addition, being an angel, he's very hard to kill. It's not impossible, but he can survive blows that would kill most mortals. He also has very fast reflexes and an ability to multitask and split his attention span so sneak attacks will fail half the time.

Weaknesses: Azrael's also not fast on the ground. He flies for a reason. On the ground, he's terribly slow, and he can't run very well, which makes his running start for his takeoff a bit of a slow one. His weak point is his back. It's where his wings are, and if he were stabbed in the back, it would injure him a lot more than if he were hurt in another place. He also can't fly if he's drenched in water.

Oh wow, you're right. But then again, he's been bad lately, maybe he doesn't deserve a party!

Maybe if he's not a butt, he'll get one next year.

Can you provide more details on Azrael's natural form?
Like what is his body shaped like (circle, triangle, dog, bird, sphinx, etc), where are his four faces positioned on his body (like are they next to each other or each is facing a different direction. . .), is his whole body also covered with his 4,000 wings or are they clumped in a general area, and how large is he compared to whatever (hopefully he's not planet-sized).

I want to make an attempt to draw his natural form since it seems like no one has done it yet. xD

Oooh boy. This is actually a really difficult question and requires some thought on my part. Describing a divine being is always greatly conjecture. However, I can tell you what I think.

In general, because of the wings, the shape is probably some sort of spherical or teardrop shape. I know that as a young child, he was very spherical, so he probably retained the shape. He's probably not planet sized, but certainly large because of his sheer wingspan, and probably the size of a small building.

I believe his four faces are all on the same head, just pointing in different directions. The wings likely make up the rest of his body, as I doubt he's actually humanoid in that form in any way or shape. The wings are probably clumped in the center and make up the general shape of his body, and then they fan out from there, possibly with wings sprouting from other wings. It doesn't necessarily make SENSE, but then again, he's a celestial being- logic doesn't follow in his wake. The eyes and tongues cover the entirety of the wings and body, and can vanish and reappear, only to be replaced by another eye or tongue. These eyes and tongues are not all alike, and instead differ to match the human they represent.

Does that make any sense?

I guess if I simplified his natural form, it would look a bit like one of my old drawings, but with all the limbs and faces.

In a very simple form, I suppose yes.

Okay. Does his four faces resemble human faces? And are all four faces the same?

I doubt they'd be human faces- they're probably covered in different arrangements of eyes and tongues. So similar, but different.
