MichaelBy canon, Michael was tried by Seraphim Council and found guilty. He remained an angel because of Divine Intervention, but what would have happened if G-d stayed its awesome and ineffable hand?

The War is already managed by Ba’al. Unless you want one to replace the other entirely, it’s important to think about where Michael might land after his fall.

Mika’el, Prince of Hubris (Pride)

Mika’el has always been victim to the sin of pride. He is the best, he deserves, the best, and in hell he has enough might to ensure that he gets it. Ba’al is perhaps disappointed in the path Mika’el has taken, but their rivalry has gotten even more friendly of late.

I have previously proposed Lucifuge Rofocale as a Prince of Pride. Mika’el offers a different vision of that word, and could easily act as a 2nd Pride if you want both to have existed within your game.

Dissonance

It is dissonant for Mika’el’s servitors to lose.

Attunements

Michail, Prince of the Dominion of Heaven

The gates of heaven may be barred to Michail, but the War rages on. While not quite so popular as Lucifer, Michail was still able to rally a great deal of of the host to join him in exile as he fights to “reclaim Hell for Heaven.”

In terms of strategy, this means that Michail and his followers would focus on corrupting the faithful without undermining their faith. The more “loyal servants of god” they can get in hell, the better staffed and supplied their army will be.

This option works especially well if a good portion of the game will be taking place in Hell.

Dissonance

Being called a demon (without pummeling the offender into the ground).

Attunements

Gain 2 Essence upon capturing or killing a hostile demon of the same band.

Hostile

Asmodeus, Ba’al, Belial, Valefor

Maykl, Prince of Tolerance

If the Seraphim Council doesn’t want war or heroes, Maykl will do his best to make sure they don’t see either – or at least none that matter. While assertive as and Archangel, as a Demon Prince this version of Michael is a master of passive aggression. His new objective is to keep the peace, no matter how unfair. As a master strategist is deeply familiar with the Archangels’ motives and capabilities, Maykl is well situated to keep them from making any progress without war.

Dissonance

Engaging in any physical act of violence or property damage. Failing to condemn others for participating in the same.

Attunements

Bal: Fast Talk to convince anyone to endure current troubles.
Dji: Add Corporeal Forces to TN when resisting damaging effects.
Cal: Tell how how many hits something or someone has left.
Hab: restricted Use resonance to give someone (Angelic) Forked Tongue.
Lil: Add Celestial Forces to any attempt to bypass censorship.
Shed: Add Ethereal Forces to TN when resisting non-damaging effects.
Imp: CD of all failed Reaction Rolls is 1.
