Admittedly, there are certain values of "harm" that may not be obvious to some humans, and which will land a Judgment counselor on someone faster than an Ofanite can sneeze. But default Heaven lets in all kinds of people -- and unless the GM rules that all destinies somehow tie in with being a Rule-Following person...

Now, if you're an angel, you're going to be following some rules, and likely getting orders now and then. (Janus' orders sometimes boil down to: "Go to this place. Stir things up. Don't get caught.")
Shamelessly adding Superiors: Lilith and her fiction page to her .sig (the latter is not precisely gaming related)

Ah yes, the eleventh commandment.

Referencing a different movie here...How would the Wim Wenders movie "Wings Of Desire" fit in with the In Nomine universe. I really enjoyed that movie in the early 90s I just found out there was a german sequel made.

Keep in mind, again. not as well-read on 'In Nomine" as I might like to be.

Well, to get back on Thread-Topic:

I don't know the English title of the movie, but the German is "Needful Things - In einer kleinen Stadt". It's a movie based on a story by Stephen King. The Devil comes to town, opens up a shop, sells goods - and demands malicious deeds done to others by the customers as payment. I think Max von Sydow plays the Devil (quite well).
Bringing it to "In Nomine": It's either a high-ranking servitor of Malphas or the Demon Prince of Factions himself who's come to town...
And did we already have "The Devil's Advocate"?

"In matters of grave importance, style, not sincerity, is the vital thing."
(Oscar Wilde, "The Importance of Being Earnest" , act 3)
