Once there were hundreds of archivists scattered throughout the Hall of Creation. Now there are just a handful, and they tend to be the most traditional of the bunch. Zizuph is a Cherub. While in heaven the angel manages a small squad of Ofanite gofers and answers to a Seraph chief curator. Beneath them are a few loyal Kyriotate pages who ensure that all the blueprints and artifacts are shelved and stored appropriately.
Zizuph’s role is to remain attuned to the various Ofanim so that they can be summoned when their services are needed – and to keep tabs on those few item allowed out of the hall’s archives during the 8th hour.
While the Halls of Creation are still technically Eli’s domain, most of their staff (including Zizuph) are in service to Yves. And given the Archangel of Destiny’s respect for librarians, it’s a reasonable enough situation, but Zizuph would rather serve Eli directly.

Technically speaking Zizuph could be played as a starting character if you removed the Distinctions. However, this Angel was never intended to enter the Corporeal Realm (where most games take place). This isn’t necessarily a hard stop, but the character should be uncomfortable in the mortal world and the player should be prepared for frequent deaths.
New Distinction: Archivist of Creation
While within the bounds of the Hall of Creation this Angel may treat Ofanim of Creation as Level 1 Servants (Level 2 if they have dissonance). This distinction is only granted to Seraphim and Cherubim.
