Shemhaza, Angel No More.png


"Why must the gods kill people?" Divine punishment was dealt to the inhabitants of the Cursed Kingdom. Shemhaza had long watched over the unforgivable act. "Is this really the justice of the gods? To kill all those who don't comply?" She could not accept the gods' self-righteous sense of justice. "Very well. I shall cast away my white wings!"


Name origin[]

Samyaza (Aramaic: שמיחזה, Greek: Σεμιαζά) also Shemhazai is a fallen angel of apocryphal Jewish and Christian tradition that ranked in the heavenly hierarchy as one of the Grigori (meaning "Watchers" in Greek). The name 'Shemyaza[z]' means 'infamous rebellion', the combination of 'shem' [meaning 'name' or 'fame' {whether positive or negative}] + 'azaz' [which means 'rebellion' or 'arrogance' as a negative particle]. Michael Knibb lists him as “the (or my) name has seen” or “he sees the name”. The interesting thing about the second interpretation is there is a tale about Semjâzâ knowing the explicit name of God and making a deal with a human (Istahar) to tell her the name.
