Ezekiel

An angel motivated by love and the deep longing for a family, Ezekial's intense devotion can some times become frightening in its resoluteness. Her two familiars are a pair of enourmous, shape-shifting pigs named Foola and Woola, who are often the targets of Ezekiel's half-crazed devotion.

Sariel
