Devas (Firmament)

From Bestiary of the Hypogriph


Devas are a type of angelic outsider native to the realm of Ziana, who are among the most common types of angel who serve benevolent deities.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Devas appear as beautiful humanoids, typically resembling Elves or Humans, with large pairs of feathered wings.

Ecology[edit | edit source]

Devas exist through most of Ziana, where they serve as agents for good deities and archangels. Many are ascended souls of deceased good mortals who have shed their former existences and become pure agents of good in the Firmament.

Society[edit | edit source]

There are three types of deva, each serving a specific role in the heavens; Monadic Devas are the least of their kind, tasked with overseeing the affairs of the benevolent gods on the Material and Elemental Plane, Movanic Devas are the common infantry of the gods of good, usually serving as the front line in wars against demons, and the Astral Devas, the most powerful of their kind, are the personal messengers and servants of good gods.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

Devas are very powerful angels and typically serve as the front-like in the defense of Ziana. They possess great power over magic and mastery of all sorts of equipment, often making use of light-forged weapons and armor in their wars against the demons of Irkalla. Devas possess a strong resistance to magic themselves, and like most outsiders, they are immortal unless slain in their home realm.
