Description: Priests of high enough rank to speak directly to the gods are alone allowed to communicate with these executors of divine will. Their bodies are fashioned of a curious crystalline metal, the composition and nature of which is beyond modern metallurgical knowledge. When they descend to the earth from their home in the heavens, they strike swiftly, and with malice apparent. It is thought the babil's numbers are growing, and some scholars warn that a great reckoning may soon be at hand.
