Arch Angel (3.5e Race)[edit]

Note at one of the D&D comicons a wizard of coast writer did say even though this is home brew it isn't op and can be used in campaigns. I got it personally first hand source

An Arch Angel is a 12 winged angel which is the closest to their Gods. They are the personal messengers and fighters that lead the army that the gods use if there were ever to be a war. However some are used to do other missions for their deity. Depending on the Deity the Arch Angel gains a bonus to their modifier. if they are anything from Lawful Good to Chaotic Good get +5 to intelligence modifier, if they are Lawful Neutral to Chaotic Neutral then get +5 to Wisdom and lastly Lawful Evil to Chaotic Evil gain +5 to charisma modifier. They don't have to serve a god if their god leaves, dies or think their good is wrong.


Arch Angels are at the pinnacle of mind as they are second to none other than the deities themselves. They are the top of the line at anything they do as they naturally are able to accomplish any task with a 100% success rate. A hybrid provides all the benefits of the other race and all the benefits of this race; free will archangels can do as they see fit to best bring peace.

Physical Description[edit]

Arch Angels Have a more over white shiny skin as they tend to release their holy aura across their body giving them a celestial form. However at times depending on the alignment the angel's wings might change colour with with to light blue being lawful good to chaotic good while lawful neutral to chaotic neutral being sapphire to violet while lawful evil to chaotic evil have a blood red to blood orange colour. The Angels tend to paint a symbol of their god onto their bodies or wings to show their alignment to that god. The difference between the normal angels to an archangel is the golden aura that is exerted out of the Angel's body. They typical wield holy devestaors as their primary weapon


Arch Angels love all beings as they see the creation of life a beautiful things and in return they are loved by all however depending on which god the angel is aligned to they may or may not be in good relations with demons. But if the archangel feels their god is wrong they can leave, or is their god dies or leaves archangelds become the one in charge of angels.


Arch Angels can be any good alignment
