    The reskinning back then was to align it with Inferno, as in the 1E book. Not to shoehorn it into Christianity. But point taken.

    Ah, my mistake. I haven't read it in a while.

They're basically people sent on a literal holy mission, and they have powers very much like Heroes - I think they're called Vestments. The only difference I can recall is that there are Greater and Lesser Vestments.

    That's fair. Also pondered using suggestions from the DtD Translation guide, perhaps explaining the relationship between the two groups.
