The Akeros or Angels are a collective terms for races that were created by the God of the Akeros that sometimes appear as humanoids with large wings sometimes in multiple sets. They are classified and divided into three power classes or Choirs. From highest to lowest they are as follows:
The Upper Class Akeros, Akeric Lords or 1st Choir
The First Choir Akeros serve as the heavenly servants of the God of the Akeros.
Physical Appearance: The Seraphim are described as fiery six-winged beings; with two top wings that cover their faces, with another two bottom wings that cover their feet, and the last two middle wings they use to fly. Their auras take on the shape of a serpent and no one can look upon them directly without some form of protection magical or otherwise. No known human form has been observed for this Akeros.
Abilities: Purification of the concept of Sin, control and manipulatation of fire, light, and inflamation of humanoid emotions and thoughts.
Cherubim- There are four individual Cherubim. They serve as the personal or royal guards of the God of the Akeros.
Physical Appearance: In their true form Cherubim are sphinx-live and have four faces: one of a man, a unicorn, a lion, and an eagle (Said to have been the inspiration for four of the Four Kingdoms). They have four conjoined wings covered with eyes, a lion's body, and the feet of a unicorn. When in humanoid form they prefer tall, thin, clean-cut humanoid embodiments.
Abilities: Able to generate swords made of plasma and fire. Cherubim serves as the guards of important places to the God of the Akeros. When not actively guarding a place they would stand around the Throne of the God of the Akeros.

The Middle Class Akeros, Akeric Governors or 2nd Choir
Akeros of the Second Sphere work as heavenly governors of the creation by subjecting matter as well as guiding and ruling the spirits.
Dominions- The Dominions regulate the duties of lower tiered Akeros. It is only with extreme rarity that the Akeric lords make themselves physically known to humanoids. Dominions take their orders from the Seraphim and the Cherubim giving out duties to the Akeros of the lower orders. Their main purpose is to make sure that the cosmos remains in order by sending down power to heads of government and other authority figures.
Physical Appearance: The Dominions are believed to look like divinely beautiful humans with a pair of feathered wings, much like the common representation of Akeros, but they may be distinguished from other groups by wielding orbs of light fastened to the heads of their scepters or on the pommel of their swords.
Abilities: Command over lower tiered Akeros, can telepathically make suggestions or whispers into the head of their synchronized humanoid ruler or authority figure. When their assigned being dies, they are assigned to another.
Virtues- These Akeros are those through which signs and miracles are made in the world. Not much is currently known about them.
Physical Appearance: In their true form they are shaped like sparks of pure light. When they make themselves known to mortals in their earthly form, they appear as musicians, artists, healers, and scientists who work with the power of love, as well as physics.
Powers- The primary duty of the "Powers" is to supervise the movements of the heavenly bodies to ensure that the multiverse remains in order, like mutiversal border control agents. Being warrior Akeros, they also oppose evil spirits or demons, especially those that make use of the matter in the universe, and often cast evil spirits to detention places.
Physical Appearance: In their celestial form, powers appear like brightly colored, hazy fumes or soldiers wearing full armor and helmet, and also having defensive and offensive weapons such as shields and spears or chains respectively.

Their duty also is said to be to carry out the orders given to them by the upper sphere Akeros and bequeath blessings to the material world. Their task is to oversee groups of people. They are the educators and guardians of the realm of earth. Like beings related to the world of the germinal ideas, they are said to inspire living things to many things such as art or science.
