(A) Samael, Snakefang Devil

LoreEdit

Twelve blazing wings arc from Samael's back, proving that she is the gods' most trusted servant. However, her nature turned thoroughly offensive once she attained her lofty position. She is the sole symbol of evil allowed to reside in the Heavens, the "Malice of the Gods." The one thing that separates her from a fallen angel is the color of her wings. This envoy of the gods reigns as a demon ruler.

Name originEdit

Samael (Hebrew: סמאל‎) (Severity of God) (also Sammael or Samil) is an important archangel in Talmudic and post-Talmudic lore, a figure who is accuser, seducer and destroyer, and has been regarded as both good and evil. It is said that he was the guardian angel of Esau and a patron of the Roman empire.

He is considered in Talmudic texts to be a member of the heavenly host (with often grim and destructive duties). One of Samael's greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the angel of death. He remains one of the Lord's servants even though he appears to want men to do evil. As a good angel, Samael resides in the seventh heaven, although he is declared to be the chief angel of the fifth heaven, the reason for this being the presence of the throne of glory in the fifth heaven.
