    An excellently varied start, though I'm not a fan of the demiplanar realms and as mentioned they could use some filling out. I'll see if I can help at all.

    On the contrary, both have certain themes they adhere to. Talisid is an especial paragon of friendship and humility - indeed Book of Exalted Deeds takes several paragraphs to say that friendship is the special theme of the guardinal leadership in general and Talisid in particular. Sealtiel specializes in purity and the quest for enlightenment (as well as leading the heavenly military).

    Peoneir might be the angel of the balance of trial and mercy, scourging the wicked and delivering from suffering those who do not deserve it.
    Agapeial of protection and prudence, promoting vigilance in the righteous and delivering the innocent from evil.
    Treasanerva of creativity, rebellion, and exposing evil, calling out those who threaten the physical foundation of good lives.
    Scarumaiel of redemption and acceptance.

    Oh, and here's a link to A Light From on High that The Tygre mentioned: link. It might offer inspiration.
