A planetar knight is a planetar that has seen so much war and destruction that they have become prestigious in battle. Many of them spar amongst each other as few other Angels are up to the challenge. They are generally under the tutelage of a Solar once they are deemed worthy of being their successor by means of accomplishing a great feat of heroic valor or through fierce determination for what is right. The planetar knights that get such tutelage are often taught some of the abilities of a solar to aid them in their endeavors. The planetar knights distinguish themselves by going to defeat any source of evil, be it fiend, demon or devil. This alone is not their only distinction. They have shown such determination to launch themselves into the fray of battle that the gods they serve have given them a life bringing aura to aid them and their allies in battle. No other Angel has such a blessing. Much like the planetars that have not yet risen to this level of battling prowess, they are muscular and hairless and have opalescent green skin and white-feathered wings. They will often lead a small group of planetars and devas into the heat of battle with eyes that will stare down all those unlucky enough to cross their path.
