I partly agree. It's hard, but not impossible, to stress interesting and meaningful differences when the base creature/notion/concept remains the same. But not always there's the need for it.

If despite all you still want to make a difference about that, making falling angels just to "morph" into demons a la "men into werewolves" (I mean, without involving another birth, or discarding a complete transmutation without trace in favor of a partial one), I agree it could work, of course depending on the implementation of those traits.

For one, I very much prefer it to be more grounded into the dimensions of myth if it's possible.
