Gabriel DC
Something had been wrong for two years now. And he was frightened as he was to admit it, what worried him was- Well, to begin at the beginning...

He was Gabriel of the Cherubim, he was Djibril of the El-Karrubiyan, Those brought near to Allah...

He soared through the first sunrise and sang his joy to the first born of the world, and every living thing learnt how to smile. He'd walked through Babylon with roses in his hair. He'd given the Sumerians water of life. He'd covered stirring sleepers with his wings beneath the pyramids... It was the Will of the Lord.


He'd bathed in Assyrian Blood, spiked Egyptian infants high on spears, torn eyes and guts and ribs and jaws from bodies of still living men - Sodom and Gomorrah died in an Apocalypse of fire, though why one man should not have another, he didn't know, just did as he was bid - The will of the Lord.

He'd committed rape behind a carpenter's in Nazareth, and a cycle of agony began that ended on a hill above Jerusalem...

The Will of the Lord.

    • This is now a stomp match, as it has been agreed upon that simply transcending an infinite reality does not necessarily qualify a character ...
    • Downstreamers even before they were downgraded are only baseline 1A which puts then at Mother Night and pralaya lvl . Lucifer alone solos all...

    • I would say the Doctor being a master at prep (since he's given prep time) and his canonical plot shielding, but I'm not an expert...
