Fire Ophanim by nachtwulf Fire Ophanim by nachtwulf
Originally this was just a reference for Broken Star's anima (he's my Twilight-caste Exalt), but... eeenh. I liked it well enough that I'm posting it as an actual deviation.

Ophanim are the angels that manifest as 'wheels of fire'.

Oh, and they're closely linked with the Cherubim.

I don't think they have wings, they're depicted as beryl-colored wheels within wheels and covered in eyes.

"The name of the most glorious and exalted Thrones denotes that which is exempt from and untainted by any base and earthly thing, and the super mundane ascent up the steep. For these have no part in that which is lowest, but dwell in fullest power, immovably and perfectly established in the Most High, and receive the Divine Immanence above all passion and matter, and manifest God, being attentively open to divine participations."

Beautiful! Magnificent! An incredible interpretation of one of the most powerful branches of the Angel Hierarchy!

Nope. Got it off a stock disk and marfed around with it. I've taken some sunset photos, but hellifino where they are anymore.

That is such and awesome anima banner! It really is beautiful. I wouldn't mess with him if I saw that looming behind him.

The wheels all rotate within themselves at different angles. The central part is actually based on an armillary sphere. ^_^

The reason his anima's so peculiar is because he's actually a god-blooded... his father is Vanileth, the Shogun of Artificial Flight. Broken Star has no particular interest in flying or anything, but he does have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with First Age hardware.

Yeah that is a bit unhealthy. I just picked up the book for God Bloods the other day. They could be real fun. :)
