Appearance

In the World Ash, Virrikiriel has a metallic humanoid form of pattern welded steel with jagged glowing crystals decorating it, a black iron faceplate covering his mouth, two small orbs of lightning for eyes and thick cables made of gold for hair. His wings seem purely decorative, and instead blue fire sprouts from the centter of his back like a jetpack when flying

On the human world he seems to mostly mirror his otherwordly appearance. He is a young man with a long blonde hair, a full black colored beard that covers his entire lower face. His eyes look too old for a young man, and the area around them is wrinkled. He dresses in old-style medieval embroidered coats over modern shirts and jeans.

Previously, Virrikiriel also had a form that fit the theme of angels as alien looking monstrosities that always contacted humans by first saying “Fear Not”. He however chooses not to use it that much anymore. In that form he was centaur-like, the lower body of a goat with a bird's feet, the head of a wolf at the end of the lower body, serving as the lower part of his torso, raising into a humanoid upper torso and arms, his arms having massive forearms with bones too large that jutted out. His head was a lion's with a crowned stag's. Only his wolf head had a mouth. From his spine, coming out of the body before the lower body and twice as long as his form was a thick tail that ended in yet another head, this one of a dragon's. Other tendrils sprouted from this tail occasionaly

History

Virrikiriel, back when he was an angel, was part of the Order of Retribuition. The powerful angels, that wielded swords of fire and smote the evil. However, very rarely did he had the chance to go out and enact such smiting, most oftenly he worked the forges. Virrikiriel however got too close to humans, he meddled in their affairs, stopping those who would turn wicked from becoming such by using his powers, changing things here and there. That drew too much attention. He was considered to have sung against Heaven. And cast down, out of the World Ash into Prosaic Earth

The fall destroyed him. It took him years to recover, but once he did he sought a way to return, and to do that he looked at the world itself. And in his rise, he discovered the power that emanated from the Sephirot in reverse order. He found Malkuth in one whose life he had changed. That person had protected someone eles, selflessly. An act of all the spheres. After that he felt a trickle of his powers returning. He found Yesod, in himself. In the power that his actions carried. As he felt their dharma grow more and more powerful, the meaning of everything he did increase he found that Sephirah. And his powers returned even more. He found he could call upon his wings again. As one might expect, Hod and Netzach he found while enjoying his wings again, playing the role of a hero. Saving people like someone out of a comic book. He failed so many times, but did not let that go in despair and fall again. Instead he found inner strength, to far surpass any challenge.

It was then he began to hear whispers. Whispers of voices of angels and demons. Those low in the hierarchy, seeking my help for them to rise in power or help those they guarded. He could see there the possibility of either returning to the choirs of Heaven or maybe even becoming a demon lord, He had already fallen and had in fact come to terms with it. In hearing the whispers he found Tiferet. And the whispers got louder as the more powerful angels and demons sought him. He learned of Gevurah, from Gabriel who talked and showed of destroying the wicked, and of Chesed from the fallen angels who talked and showed of loving all things human.

By then, Virrikiriel had already thrown away all ideas of becoming anything. He meditated and traveled, learning more and more of the both worlds. He had found passageways into the World Ash. He dealt with Nobles and other weird things. He found Chokmah and Binah by himself. And with all that, he found what he was looking for. Deep within every world, every reality, an echo. In that echo he heard the voice and intentions of the infinite Light. Of Cneph, possibly before he was even Cneph. In that, he found Keter. And discovered, that upon finding the ten Spheres, the powers he had crystallized into something new. In the end, he chose to distance himself from the angels and demons, and found in a certain Wild Lord, a lot of similarities to the echoes he heard in Keter. He believed that Wild Lord was the one worthy of having the Angel of Sephirot among his Nobles
