This is the angelic entity whose job it is to referee the Last Battle, at which the Five Horsemen of the Apocralypse do battle with the Auditors. In the older Books of Omnianism, there is an Angel clothèd all in white and bearing an iron book, who presides over the event. Such an angel has come into existence, and has been waiting for this event for centuries. However, by the time the event occurred, he was dismissed as an allegory for something that had already happened.


  • The Book of Tobit, which is held canonical by some Christian denominations and apocryphal by others, describes a similar sort of no doubt confused Angel. Here, he is not best pleased to be told he is now, in the eyes of the Omnian faith, considered apocryphal, and therefore out of the story.)
