Reangel (5e Race)
From D&D Wiki
|“||This still isn't actually my most accurate form.||”|
The reangels are celestial beings derived from biblically accurate angels. They have a humanoid form like a human for the most part, but have a disturbing amount of eyes dotting all over their bodies. These eyes are able to vanish from one spot and appear in another. Reangels can augment their appearance by unleashing their inner aura. This causes a halo of light to appear around their head for all reangels. Some reangels have other features sprout out, like the heads of beasts or many wings of light.
The reangels are believed to be a kind of planetouched being, though it is unclear by who. They are similar to aasimars in their affinity for celestial powers but are believed to be a closer source. Reangels are known for a very early appearance in the history of the world, though few in number. They all shared the same disturbing appearance. When their inner auras of radiance were unleashed, it was said the weakminded would go insane from seeing their appearance. This has yet to be proven in any way. Reangels have an uncanny hive-mind of belief, all alluding to a single deity they all serve. This is perhaps the being that granted them their creation and powers, but due to the mysticism surrounding these beliefs, it is hard to ascertain the entity in question.
Given their ever few numbers, the reangels do not usually form much of a group. They are solitary wanderers, drifting from coast to coast, city to city, as though watching and waiting. When they live among other races, it is usually for a short time of about 20 years. During their stays, they will usually be drawn to centers of worship, though they do not worship any but their own entity. Reangels advocate for honest living and work, and they are hard workers at that. They will take up any job available to them at any given moment where they are staying. Usually, rather than ask for monetary payment, they take lodging and food as compensation instead. Therefore, once people get over their appearance, they are a rather welcome source of help.
It is said that reangels have emotions beyond that of the human variety. They think in strange and enigmatic ways, always enjoying a good riddle or puzzle, and making them on the fly often. They often will speak in metaphors and indirect senses rather than give answers that are too straightforward. But despite this, reangels despise lying and wrongdoing overall. They claim their entity to be one of absolute good, of whom they are the weapons and senses. Therefore, they must do their utmost to be upstanding people. They are the entity's eyes and wrath. When they are enraged, it is said their entity's power shines through them. As such, they don't get along with beings of infernal nature like tieflings. They would be hardpressed to not kill one on sight. In this way, they are strangely passionate, yet also mechanical beings in that they have coded responses that are present in all of their race.
A reangel typically follows the naming conventions of their race. They do not exhibit weird or over-the-top names, unless their parents decided to. However, the name of the angel will still live on in the renagel's memory, though they will have no knowledge of how they know this piece of information.
