Notable(s)


Nephilim are beings created as a result of a human and an angel reproducing. Over time there has been many, at least a hundred, however they have been hunted by angels as "abomintaions" to near extinction over the years and few if any regular ones live. There is one known more powerful nephilim, Ledan, however he's considered different as a nephilim tends to be the child of a regular angel (seraph) or cupids as opposed to an archangel

Nephilim begin their lives as seemingly ordinary human children and build up their powers inherited angelic parents' powers over time. This is because as they grow, their grace strengthens too.

It is possible for nephilim to reproduce, this means that they can have offspring which also possess similar, though usuaully lesser, powers to them. This would create a 'half' or 'part' nephilim, depending how far down in the line it goes, until eventually the line becomes human (occasionally with a flare up of powers in the form of psychics or "natural witches").

HistoryEdit

Hunting of NephilimEdit

During the ages angels have hunted nephilim, this is due to the fact god supposedly said that any being not created by him was considered an abomination. The the union between humans and angels was also forbidden, which gave futher creedence to this idea. These two factors led to the belief that hunting down any nephilim, and thus archnephilim, was what god would have wanted: to eradicate them. While there were initially only a few nephilim, during the late BC years there was a rise in the birth of regular nephilim, and with them there was a rise in the amount of angels sent to hunt them. It was heaven's intent to "purge" the earth once and for all. 

Sigilneck

One of the necklaces that Leda has kept and given a modern chain.

During this time, nephilim basically could not stay in the same place without an angel eventually finding them, fighting them, and killing them if they were able. While the archnephilim were already on the move, it was still risky. Any angel could detect them if they knew what they were looking for and they'd have very little to do to protect themselves, thus they needed a way to hide from them. At this point Ledan had every reason to believe any angel could kill him.

Thyrvï, Ledan's mother, and the former lover of Jophiel told them of a sigil the archangel had told her about in case she'd need it that would prevent angels from sensing the part of them with a grace-like element, thus making them seem like normal humans. These were fairly easy to make once they knew how to draw them.

Ledan and his daughter did their best to give them out to any other nephilim that might have needed them, this brought back angels' ability to capture and therefore kill nephilim dramatically. While obviously, not all nephilim were lucky enough to be found and given the sigils, the ones who were now had the advantage. While angels could still easily track down those nephilim who were unprotected, other methods on heaven's side had to be devised for those few who were. This led to angels posing as nepilim they'd killed on occasion to try and draw out other nephilim who may want to help them, this led to the death of Mæja in 77BC. The identity of the angel who killed her is as of yet unknown.

By the early AD years there was believed to be no nephilim left, while untrue, it's unknown how many survived the hunting by angels, Ledan goes as far to believe only he survived. It's not known Ledan is correct, however, as other nephilim in other places may have devised other ways to hide their nature from angels, or may have had knowledge of the sigil as well.

Nephilim After the "Purge"Edit

Some nephilim were also born after this purge, though far more rarely than even before the surge n the late BC years, as angels never stopped falling. While the phenonenon became far more rare, there were seveal nephilim created after this point. Ledan, when he could find them, continued his and his daughter's work to protect them, though he hasn't been as succesful as he'd like. His upper hand being the son of an archangel was clearly part of the issue.

Jane Greene

Jane Greene was a nephilim born in 1992, making her the cousin of Ledan. She worked as a waitress. Her cousin Ledan, after finding out about her existence when she was very young, played somewhat of a role in making sure she was safe as she grew up. Ledan gave her mother and as she grew up Jane herself various sigils and amulets to help ward her and keep angels from finding and killing her.

Because of this, Ledan was somewhat of an uncle-like figure to the girl, him being so much older than her. Showing up with gifts for her and helping her to control her powers as she developed them.

Despite these efforts, she was killed by Castiel after being tracked by Metatron, being the only other nephilm (that he knew of) in existence, Ledan took her death extremely hard and still hates Castiel to this day.

Margaret "Maggie" Walden was a nephilim born in the late 1800s. The fraternal twin of Clara Walden, Maggie developed fewer of her father's powers than her younger twin. The resulting effect was that by the time they were in their mid 100s Maggie looked like her twin's grandmother.

The sisters endeavourd to live their lives as peacefully as they could. Protecting themselves with the sigils passed onto them by Ledan. Maggie went on to marry and have several children and grandchildren. However, eventually at the age of 150, they were tracked down and murdered by an unknown angel.

Ledan, having grown close to his cousins, took their death hard.
