Default Re: Can Celestials Have Kids?

IMC, I like to play up the fissibility and fusibility of Celestials.

For angels, this is a chance to show the alien directions selflessness goes in.An angel sees itself as a tool, so angels merge, split, and redistribute according to the functional demands of (what they estimate to be) the mission of the Host as a whole. Personal identity is meaningless. Humans should find this bizarre and terrifying.

For demons, fusion is predation, redistribution is predation or trade, and fission is a selfish subset of the spirit yearning to be free.

Every angel can be happy, or the angelic equivalent of happy, that it exists to fulfill a definite purpose. Every demon can brag that she, by Falling or breaking off, created herself.
