|“||I am one of the Knights of Heaven... and I will not be stopped.||”|
A Knight of Heaven is a unique human, who is Heaven's chosen one - created, selected, and gifted by God - to protect others and slay demons, specifically the Knights of Hell. The Knights are thought to be one of God's oldest and most powerful creations, and they are said to be very wise. Archangels are also capable of choosing a Knight of Heaven.
The Knights of Heaven worked inconspicuously and efficiently for many years. The Knights did not become known to the demons until the 10th century. After that, many demons began searching the Earth, looking for the Knights of Heaven. Many of the Knights were slaughtered by Cain and Abaddon save for two, who managed to escape.
The two Knights - Lexi and Stefan - were thought to have been exterminated. However, they reappeared in 2013 when Nevaeh Winchester turned eighteen so they could teach her how to use her gifts as a Knight of Heaven.
HistoryEditThe Knights of Heaven were created and handpicked by God, as well as the Archangels. They are almost as old as the very first demon, Lilith, and therefore, they possibly date back to when the first Knights of Hell were created by Cain.
The Archangels - and other higher-level angels - built the order of the Knights and trained them, so the Knights would be able to pass down their knowledge to future generations. The first King of Heaven, Alaric, was trained to be their commander and to lead them against the Knights of Hell and the demons who commited atrocities on Earth.
They are represented by a sigil in a pre-enochian language, further indicating that the idea alone of the Knights of Heaven had very ancient roots.
During the 10th century, one of the Knights of Heaven - by the name of Lexi - finally caught the attention of Cain, as well as various other demons, leading them to discover the order of the Knights of Heaven. Angry and feeling threatened, Cain began hunting down the Knights of Heaven, wanting to put a stop to them before they could cause him any harm. He was assisted by Abaddon.
Lexi went into hiding to save her own life, though she continued to secretly hunt demons whenever she could. She was later joined by a fellow Knight, named Stefan, who had also managed to escape the slaughter of the Knights of Heaven. Together, the two of them continued to hide from Cain, Abaddon, and the demons. However, in 2013, they both reappeared when Nevaeh Winchester turned eighteen. Lexi and Stefan knew it was their duty to train Nevaeh to be the new commander for the future generations of the Knights of Heaven, which were sure to come with the help of God.
The Knights of Heaven are considered to be "very pure" and "very strong". They are the Chosen One's of Heaven, and are considered to be wise, holy, and inspiring. The are brave, loyal, and willing to sacrifice their lives to protect others from demons and the Knights of Hell.
God - or the Archangels - will usually choose the Knights of Heaven before they have even been born. However, in rare cases, a person can be chosen as a Knight in their teenage or adult years. But this only happenes when someone has shown great devotion towards God, or a willingness and desire to be good and protect others.
The Knights of Heaven are humans who were chosen and gifted by Heaven. Unlike the Knights of Hell who are demons, the Knights of Heaven do not have to possess people.
Whoever is chosen will continue to look like themselves, though as they have been gifted by Heaven, they will become immortal, and therefore they will not age. The Knights who were chosen before they were born will cease aging at a certain point in their lives, which they get to choose. They are also able to continue aging and stop again if they wish. However, the Knights of Heaven who are chosen in either their teenage or adults years simply stop aging at whatever age they were chosen at, and do not have a choice.
Nevaeh Winchester, who was chosen to be a Knight of Heaven, is a special case. She was chosen at the age of eighteen; however, she stopped aging at sixteen due to being a Hybrid. It is very possible she will be able to continue aging due to being a Hybrid.
Though in many lore and stories about the Knights of Heaven, they are all depicted as strong, brave-looking males. The Knights of Heaven were not thought to be females.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Humans who are chosen as Knights of Heaven are gifted with great powers and abilities, which can be similar to that of a low-level angel, or sometimes of an Archangel.

- Telekinesis - Knights of Heaven can move objects and people with their minds. They can use this power to throw demons with only a hand gesture.
- Invulnerability - Knights of Heaven are not really affected by damage dealt to them. Injuries as severe as being stabbed, gunshot wounds, decapitation, and dismemberment do not affect them much. They may also not be as tuned into physical sensations.
- Telepathy - By blowing a portion of their essence into demon, a Knight of Heaven has the ability to access that demon's memories to see and hear what that demon had seen and heard. The Knight appears to be able to instantly identify and access specific memories he/she wants to see, rather than having to shift through all of a demon's memories.
