Wings of Gabriel | STAR
The Wings of Gabriel is an extraordinarily religious society that consists of many forms of individual. This includes certain humans, immortals, demi-gods, and angels in human form. They answer to all seven of the archangels, aspire to look upon the face of god and exist with the sole purpose of preventing the New World Order from coming to pass. They are almost entirely consistent of sleepers. They do not initiate people into the society. The 7 archangels hand pick each individual that is allowed to function under this order. The reason for this is rather simple - it is to prevent the power that is given to the members of the Wings of Gabriel to get in the wrong hands.
The power itself is directly from God himself.
By God, it was bestowed firstly upon the archangels who are the ones that mostly guard the Wings of Gabriel but was then gifted to the loyals of the society. Back when the society was originally formed, the power was only gifted to prophets of light, priests, priestesses and elites. That is still technically true to this day but that doesn't mean that other members haven't been allowed to gain or use the power as well. The magic is a unique cocktail of purity and extreme white light magic that cannot be accessed through any other methods than specifically God's hands or the specific relics held by each of the 7 archangels.
The way someone is usually initiated into this group is through a very sudden near-death experience but it is usually one that almost always has to occur under certain circumstances. For instance, a death that occurs too soon, is forced or at the hands of a rogue entity. When this occurs, just before the soul of the victim is about to ascended, the angels gather and appear before them. This in itself is a huge deal because all 7 archangels usually never gather before any one entity other than God himself. The reason they even do this is because the ritual is one under God and God demands it of them. They will ask the person if they wish to die or continue to live under the Wings of Gabriel. The answer of the individual is never the one that matters in the end. If the person says no, they simply ascend to heaven. If they yes, they are trialed by each of the archangels and the soul must survive the strain of all 7 archangels before it is granted the power of each.
This process insures that there is never corruption under the Wings of Gabriel and therein lies why the society is called the Wings of Gabriel - Gabriel is always the last and most difficult obstacle. He is usually where most are certain to meet failure. If the individuals do not fail, they are brought back into the realm of the living with angelic gifts bestowed from the archangels.
Note that attempted-suicide is the one untimely instance that will absolutely not inspire this event to take place. Additionally, the 7 archangels will not appear before someone that is not meant to ascend into heaven upon death.
The creation of this piece is technically forbidden but was done so through a very minuscule loophole, which is this: one whose death is brought upon the attempted forced transformation while remaining in physical form. It is a extraordinarily rare mistake. It happens when one is near-death but comes back on their own accord. The piece is created when the soul is pulled back into its physical body in the middle of the trials of the 7 archangels. The physical body cannot withstand the presence of all 7 angels and loses the ability to function - it literally just stops.
That is how this item was created and it grants you complete white light magic that is purified and channeled from the hands of God himself. It simulates the initiation of one of these rituals that is usually conducted by the 7 archangels under God. The piece holds power granted by each individual archangel and they will all gradually be tethered to you. The reason that what this piece does is gradual is because of the nature of the ritual that usually takes place. The ritual that happens when you are actually chosen - by chance - by the archangels is much more powerful, intense and instantaneous. It is also the one, as said before, that can lead to failure.
With this piece, which embodied one of these transformations and will ultimately simulate when it comes in contact with you, you will inevitably succeed and overcome all of the obstacles but it will be done at a significantly lesser pace. That being said, the power you gain is just as powerful once you are exposed to the power as an entirety. This item cannot simply be recreated, duplicated or acquired at will. Even if there is another one created, it is unlikely that we or any other will ever created as it is nothing short of raw luck that this wasn't destroyed the second it was created due to it somehow escaping the notice of the angels. It is that powerful and rare.
There are seven of these glass eyes to represent one eye for each of the seven archangels.
