Duorktael is a powerful but subtle angel who maintains the Symphony’s underlying tempo at 94 beats per minute. By aligning the Symphony with humanity’s indifference point, she has been able to ensure that the minor acts of creation and correction that occur every day feel right and natural to the world at large.
It is unlikely that a group of PCs would ever meet Duorktael, and even less likely that they would realize who she is as she is just as adept at passing by Celestials unseen.
However, if reality has been rent open and it seems unlikely that the world will ever be able to return to normal, Durktael will be there quietly directing the various Cleaning Crews without ever quite revealing what she herself is up to.
While Dominic is mildly suspicious of anyone who would keep Eli’s secrets, her close association with Israphel and Yves and her obvious loyalty to god’s plan has kept the Archangel of Judgement from coming down hard upon her.

Songs of Indifference
The Songs of Indifference were discovered by Duorktael and those familiar with the songs of Solace and Oblivion will find variations on each theme within it. Except where otherwise noted the Songs of Indifference last CD hours.
Corporeal: The target of this song shrugs off the effects of physical pain. They cannot be stunned or suffer other penalties from physical pain.
Ethereal: The target will become permanently numbed to a memory, robbing it of any interest or traumatic impact. The memory still exists, but the subject will have little cause to call it up. The subject may attempt to resist with a Will roll if they wish to keep the memory active.
Celestial: The target becomes indifferent to the plight of others, effectively gaining the Apathy Discord (or Disadvantage) for the duration of the Song.
