Organised under the Archangels, and unknown to humanity, these are the angels who answer prayers and provide protection against the threat of evil. They stand alongside humans on the battlefield giving them strength to fight or face death. These are the angels who are most likely seen on Earth, at least from the corner of the eye, and the ones who provide comfort and calm at times of crisis. They influence the human subconscious and are devoted to the purity of the human soul.
They are fighters, teachers, advocates, guardians, and defenders. They will go head-to-head with a demon to save any soul that is in jeopardy.
Often members of the Hoard will be born from human energy. Those who have completed multiple cycles of existence on Earth, learned many lessons about good and evil, and through that experience had found utmost faith in the Source. Those humans will be offered the option of transformation to the angelic realms either at the time of death or, though rarely, plucked from an existing human life.
