  • Technically, angels CAN fuck. They're just not supposed to. The Bible does speak of the Nephilim, who were human/angel hybrids.

    Now, the Nephilim appeared to be considered pretty evil and violent. I've heard some Bible scholars theorize that Goliath was one of them. Apparently, large size was a trademark of the Nephilim. Some scholars also theorize that Noah's flood was really more about wiping out the Nephilim than it was about punishing sinners.

    You could argue that the Nephilim were bad because they were made without God's permission. If you really want an Angelic...

  • ​On the other hand? Islamic mythology does have the Djinn, which Islam considers to be either fallen angels or some kind of third race created by Allah. And just like Buddhism, Islamic mythology acknowledges that Djinn aren't inherently evil and can, in fact, convert to Islam and lead righteous lives.

    ​It's not impossible to imagine that Islam solved the polytheism problem the same way: the "other gods" aren't gods at all. They're fallen angels or some other creatures created by Allah, who arrogantly assume themselves to be as great or greater than Allah. They just need...

    ​The book specifically states that the Abrahamic faiths are still around and that they're still the dominant religions in the World. They just don't have the near-total control that they have in our World because the Pagan traditions never died out as thoroughly as they did in our World.

    ​The context of the Saint Path is that you're a person whose soul resonates strongly with one of the Pantheon's Virtues. To the point where you can actually do great things on your own, provided you stay true to those Virtues.

    ​The books also mention that the nations of the World...

    Skadi is a good choice for the Pantheon because she's all kinds of interesting.

    Just think of the story potential she has. She's a member of a race that is technically the Aesir's deadliest enemy. She chose to throw in her lot with them and probably share in their doomed Fate.

    You just know that a LOT of Frost Giants resent her deeply for her "betrayal." Stories in which Skadi deals with being torn between two worlds practically write themselves.

    I've always found Skadi interesting because it's a bit of a mystery why Odin went to such great lengths...

    It's not so suprising. The Aesir suffer from a SEVERE shortage of myths featuring the female gods. If OP wants decent opportunities for female representation in the Aesir, they kind of have to use Skadi as she's one of the very few female figures in Norse myth to have a significant role in a story....

    For Callings, Hunter is obviously a must. For the other two, I'd say.......Warrior and Guardian? I guess?

    Purviews? Definitely Frost and Wild. Maybe some Epic Dexterity too....
