Cassian Angel


A servant of Desna, Helgarval
was summoned to the Material Plane to serve as a familiar
but was stranded when its master died. Since that time, the
angel has tried to do good deeds in order to gain the notice
of its betters and return to its home plane of Elysium. Most
recently, Helgarval stumbled upon the doings of the oni of
the Five Storms in the Kalsgard area and has spent years
quietly observing the oni and their agents and gathering
as much information as it could. Learning of Snorri Stone-
Eye’s connections with the Rimerunners Guild (and thus
with the Frozen Shadows), Helgarval secretly stowed away
on the funeral ship, only to find itself trapped belowdecks.
Unless recognized as a living creature (such as with a DC
12 Knowledge [planes] check, but only if a PC asks to make
the check), Helgarval does not yet reveal its presence,
but any nonevil individual wearing the helm receives the
benefits of the angel’s lesser protective aura. The angel
wishes to gauge the PCs’ intentions before it makes its
presence known to them, but can be a valuable ally when
it finally chooses to do so.
