A is for Arch Angel



Most-Wanted Monsters is thrilled to be one of more than a thousand blogs taking part in the 2012 A -Z Blogging Challenge - 26 opportunities to help you survive a paranormal apocalypse. Don't let our epic monster limericks fool you - the lore we share about the beasties featured in each daily post could literally save your life. Know them before they GET you!

ARCHANGEL

An angel named Lucifer fell from grace
No love from heaven, condemnation in its place
He waged a heavenly war
But Gabriel evened the score
And a former arch angel now wears Satan's evil face

Let's be clear - we're not hunting the angels whose halos remain untarnished. Not the Michaels and Gabriels, the Raphaels or Jophiels. They're pretty much top dog in the somewhat complicated angel hierarchy.

But those fallen angels? Those are the dudes you've gotta keep your eye on. Like Lucifer, perhaps the most famous of the heavenly rogue. Referred to as Satan himself, this bad boy demon fell from glory and waged a war of epic proportions.

He's not the only one. From pop culture bad boys like author Becca Fitzpatrick's "Patch" to the female star of the band Poison's song about one, fallen angels have had more than their 15 minutes of fame, and are amassing a frightening bag of tricks.

We doubt you'd want to run in to ABADDON, the fallen angel of death. ANDREALPHUS has the power to turn you into a bird. And while AMDUSCIAS may appear in the form of a unicorn, we advise you to just walk away.

SURVIVAL TIP: Unless you're in possession of a Supernatural colt like the one wielded by the Winchester boys, we'd suggest you book it. Like, now.

Think of an "A" monster more scary than a fallen arch angel? Please do share.

And then, head over to some of the other blogs on the A-Z Blogging Challenge.

  1. Oustanding post - I really enjoyed this topic. I did have a wee chuckle when I started reading about Lucifer...that's the name of my little dog...a wee devil. Her actual name is Lucky, and Lucy if I'm really happy with her...when she was little she got into so much trouble we started calling her Lucifer - it sort of stuck.

    I'll be back to see what's in store with the rest of the alphabet - great start.

  2. Love this. I just posted a comment but it got lost when I tried to select a profile. I'll try again. I'm interested in angels. Thanks for bringing the fallen ones to my attention. How does someone learn these things? The closest I've come to experiencing an angel is a stray scent wafting by.

  5. This is too much of a coincidence! I was just talking to my cousin and he was complaining that he felt like the fallen angels were out to get him. I asked him, which one? I think all, he replied.
