Angels

Creatures theme

Includes anything identified as angels or similar entities; generally feathery winged human-like divine beings.

Alternate names: Cherubs, Seraphim

The first video game about Angels was released on December 19, 1986.

Kalypso Media Digital, Nintendo and Ubisoft has published most of these games

Stereotypically angels are indistinguishable from humans except for the divine aura/halo and wings. Often depicted as unearthly fair as well. They have a habit of floating just above ground even when not flapping their wings (if they even ever flap them), making them appear extremely tall and somewhat less attached to the physical world. Personality wise angels are often kind and chivalrous/correct to a fault. Sometimes depicted as having extremist/unyielding views.

Cherubs are essentially child-like angels and Seraphim are angels with 3 pairs of wings (compare with butterflies or other insects that usually have 2 pairs).
