Hell Angel[edit]

That which should not be often comes from the strangest of places. In this case, from right under our noses...

Physical Description[edit]

Hell angels look like pale humanoids that have painted various aspects of themselves to appear special, edgy and emo. They have ebon eyes, hair and nails. Their lips are unnaturally red. This sometimes gets them mixed with vampires. Black tattoos often cover their body. They appear like markings and are present from birth. Hell angels are known to emit dark tendrils and turn their eyes red when they experience strong emotions.

History & Society[edit]

Hell angels are not actually connected to the hells directly. They are said to have arisen from strange backwater villages, where pale, starving babies were unearthed from barren fields. Many were raised by the villagers who took them as their own, whilst others were left as bad omens, and their fates are unknown. As they matured, their true nature became more apparent. They were not normal beings, seemingly imbued with a dark power within. As they get older, they can manifest this strange power in various abilities. It is unclear how they came to be or where this power comes from. Often this form manifests in the shape of wings, which is where they get their nickname as "angels."

Due to how creepy their appearances end up, hell angels are often turned away at older ages from various locations. Whilst they are young, they stay with their foster families, usually that of humanoids, though feral children have been rumored to exist. Hell angels are not known to have a place of their own and are solitary wanderers across continents.


Despite their inauspicious appearances, hell angels are not particularly morbid or malicious. They sometimes are said to become more dour and brooding as they age, but this can be said also for human teens. They have varying temperaments otherwise, reflecting that of humans. However, negative emotions seem to hit them harder. Sadness can quickly lead to depressive lows and minor annoyance can grow rapidly into a full-blown explosive temper. Hell angels know they are different with time, and often this is what decides their ultimate fate. Some do not abide by the world's cruelty and thus turn evil as retaliation. Others were lucky and encountered support when needed.

Hell Angel Names[edit]

Hell angels usually keep the names they are given from birth. But some take up an additional middle name. It is unclear where they receive this name, but they often claim that it comes from their original home, wherever that is. This middle name is often notably ominous or cryptic.

Male Names: Shad, Urik, Ian, John

Female Names: Kelly, Ophilia, Allie, Ciara

Middle Names: Helldar, Magatsuhi, Burndor, Allekin
