On that fateful night the battle to end all battles started. The angels pariah versus the prince of angels. The battle to shake the world. The battle fought for the humans. But this is not were the story starts, not really anyways. My name is Nadie Luccius and I am the one and only angel to tear off his wings and plunge down to Earth all for the sake of being human. This is the story of the war between humans and angels and it started one year ago.
The angel Nadie walked on the path of heaven being blamed for the misfortune in the battle against demons, after all every place needs a pariah to take the blame, even heaven. The angel looked down at Earth and looked at the humans marveling at their complexity, their weakness, and their strength. Nadie couldn 't help but to marvel at them. Most angels saw the humans as weak hairless apes, but Nadie loved them. Most of all he wanted to be one.
The angels liked to refer to Nadie as the next Lucifer, but he was the exact opposite. Lucifer was cast down to hell because he could not love humans more than God, and therefor defied his father. On the other hand Nadie loved and adored the humans.
An angel called out to Nadie
"Hey Nadie Michael wants to speak with you." The angel said.
"What does he want Leviaten?" Nadie questioned.
"Your guess is as good as mine Nadie but he seemed pissed of so, you better hurry your ass up." The now named angel, Leviaten answered.
"Don 't tell me what to do; I still out rank you." Nadie said.
A group of two hundred “Watcher-class” fallen angels descended to Mount Hermon. These were special angels commissioned by God to watch and observe humans and human activity on Earth. In my opinion, these “fallen angels”, under the direction of Satan, took an oath to take human wives and create human hybrids in order to corrupt the human genome.
The play Marisol was much different than what I had expected. The interpretations of the characters were interesting to me. As the story unfolded, the main characters; Marisol, The Angel, June, and Lenny all began to use tactics to reach their objectives however, the two that grabbed my attention the most were The Angel and Lenny.

Differences in race exist. To pretend they don’t is a ridiculous notion and does nothing to bridge division and heal wounds caused by years of exclusion. However, the difference lies in acknowledging one’s racial biases, and having the self-awareness to correct it as General Chamberlain did in the passage, “Chamberlain felt an oddness, a crawly hesitation, not wanting to touch him…he felt it again: a flutter of unmistakable revulsion…He had not even known this feeling was there.” (p. 169 The Killer Angels)
"I do not understand Charmeine." Raziel spoke quietly as they watched over humanity. Charmeine is Raziel's commander, but also a good friend: she is the angel of harmony and she can bring peace between any two enemies. "If God pours all his love into these creatures how are they so flawed?" Charmeine turned to look at her and smiled softly, "Humans are very flawed." She pauses for a minute.
