You were chosen by a deity you prayed to beforehand to become a warrior in his/her name. You now serve this deity loyally until death and are granted with certain abilities and traits as part of this beloved loyalty. With this newfound power which path will you take to claim your god's favor?
Angels are divine beings of vengeance, trust, loyalty, and above all protection. As an Angel you are expected to perform certain tasks and make specific sacrifices for the greater good of a cause loyal to you and your deity.
- this class was intended to be played with any race excluding Aarakocras as they basically would serve no purpose other than to break specific mechanics (such as Wings) but if you can figure out how to make it work, go for it!

- Hit Points
Armor: light, medium, shields
Tools: Healer's Kit
Saving Throws: Charisma, Wisdom
Skills: choose two from Animal Handling, Arcana, History, Insight, Intimidation, Medicine, Perception, Persuasion, or Religion.

You are an immortal, celestial being. Your creature type is now Celestial and you no longer age and do not require food, drink, or sleep. You do however need to rest daily to retain this celestial strength through a prayer of contemplation with your deity. During a long rest you may pray to your deity for 4 hours granting you the full benefits of a normal 8 hour rest.
You grow a pair of wings as part of becoming an Angel. These wings are new and as such will take some getting used to and proper training to be able to function correctly. When you are subject to fall damage you can reduce the damage by a number equal to 5 times your Angel level. These wings are incorporeal and appear translucent and white.
At 6th level you gain full strength of these wings granting you a flying speed of 50 feet.
Starting at level 1 you choose an Angelic Domain pushing you to follow a core trait from the following: Protector, Avenger, The Reaper.
Starting at level 2, your unnaturally holy form gives off a slight glow that you can ignite and extinguish as a bonus action on your turn. This radiance glows a 10 foot aura of bright light with an additional 10 foot aura of dim light beyond it. Your bright light dispels any and all magical darkness it contacts.
At 2nd level you inherit your natural spellcasting ability. You can now cast spells from the Cleric or Wizards spell list. Your Angel table shows you how many spell slots you have, you can only cast a spell if you have it prepared and have an available spell slot to expend. Once you expend a spell slot you do not regain it until you finish a long rest.

You let out your final words as your essence is drawn from you and ascends to the Upper Planes.
