Nora Fox is a Red Riding Hood, no longer a child but not yet a woman. Gayle Vat is a Bad Wolf in good standing with the Lupine’s Malevolent Society. The pair are currently shacked up because Nora needs a family right now and doesn’t know that many people in the waking world. Gayle is going along with it because shes thinks Nora is cute, she’s a bit of a chaser, and she could use some help with rent. Neither expect the arrangement to work out in the long run (they both know the story they come from), but for now they have an uneasy truce. Continue reading
Depression is dangerous in an angel; especially among the Elohim, where feeling is so central to who they are and what they do. Rather than fall in the ghost of Meserach’s clutches, an Elohite of Creation has thrown themselves into the local club scene in an attempt to prove that they can still feel, still love, still want.
It is a vulnerable place for one of the Elohim to be, too much attachment; too much pain, and they still might crack and become one of the Punishers – and Andrealphus always tends to keep his fingers on the pulse of the night scene and is more than happy to lead a Creationer down the path to hell.
A party that successfully leads the Elohite back to their side should be allowed to call upon them as a resource in the future.
Though not all Archangels agree, civil rights and social justice campaigns have been a godsend for heaven. But they have also brought about their share of complications, not the least of which is a new set of vocabulary that demons have started using to highlight the hypocrisy and oppression of heaven.

Auntie Lavender is one of those angels to seek when you want to know what’s going on in town. During the day he can usually be found painting or gardening in his signature lilac overalls… or at least his friends always seem to be able to find him that way. No so much his creditors. At night Auntie Lavender tends to go dancing and clubbing with friends (unless there is a major political function to observe). Continue reading
Yves‘ Ivory Council is arguably the most influential deliberative body in heaven after the Seraphim Council itself. The Council is typically divided into three parts: The Division of Corporeal Affairs, The Division of Ethereal Affairs, and The Division of Celestial Affairs. However, plenary sessions are not unheard of.
While the Ivory Council has no direct authority, their debates inform Destiny and the Chair of each Division is an ex-officio member of the Seraphim Council.
One of the Ofanim just blew into town. She has three days to organize, promote, and host a rocking, raucous trick-shot tournament and she wants the party to help.
She’s hoping to catch Hasmed’s attention so she can study under them – and her resonance has said this is the time and place to do it.
“Beauty is only skin deep, that’s what makes it beautiful.”
Druxy is a spook and a fixer. Although she has her fingers on the pulse of whatever city she’s in, she is rarely seen dirtying her own hands. Continue reading
Ohad is an enforcer and Project Manager for Vapula’s Department of Ontological Sciences. Rather than researching or classifying, Ohad and his task force work on tracking down outliers and forcing them to either comply or be destroyed.
This mission has often lead Ohad and his team to collaborate with Asmodeus in tracking down Outcasts and Renegades who claim to hold loyalty to neither heaven nor hell. Continue reading
There are two main parts to every In Nomine NPC: motivation and stats
Motivations are hard to generate randomly (and tend to involve large and mostly arbitrary charts). I don’t really advocate for that approach.
Take the time between sessions to build about a dozen personality profiles. Include likely results for Seraphim, Elohim, Habbalah, Malakite, Lilim, and Mercurian resonance. You may not be able to predict whether or not you’re going to need a “baker” or a “lawyer” but you will eventually need someone. Once you know who your PCs are approaching, pick the personality profile that fits best and start adding stats. Continue reading
