Contradith has one of the most challenging (and therefore most sought after) jobs for a Cherub in Janus’ hierarchy. She’s responsible for guarding revolutionary figures who already advance her Archangel’s Word and objectives. Because of how much of an iconoclast he is, she frequently has to fend off other angels.
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.
Before I started working on my NPC reserve – I took quick stock of the existing NPCs for each superior. I should have done so a long time ago. It’s fascinating to see what bands and choirs are popular and unpopular for each of the Superiors.
This week I am focusing on the Choir distribution in Heaven. Next week I will focus on the Band distribution in Hell.
One of the advantages of writing about a gaming system like In Nomine is that I can find source material all over the place, such as this article on TheTorah.com examining different interpretations of the Cherubim that have appeared through the ages.
