    There is no other Celestial in Creation more loved (literally) or respected than Eros, the Glorious Rose. Standing at the pinnacle of physical and spiritual perfection, he is the personification of love in all its manifestations; including physical passion at its strongest; tender, romantic love; and playful, sportive love. And, there is no other Defender of Freedoms closer to Law.

    Known for his passionate voice and tender ministrations, Eros is a proficient healer of hurts; particularly of violence engaged in the acts of non-consensual sex.
    Unbeknownst to many, however, Eros is, contrary to many expectations, not related in any way to the Defenders. No, Eros' story begins long ago, not in Arborea or in the other Celestial planes nor even in Heaven but in Elysium.

    Eons ago, when Antiquity itself was young; in the climax of a violent separation, as the Pinnacle Love rose into the defined Realms Above, her tears forming the Cerulean Sea, the winds of her essence merged with Neutrality and Chaos, creating entities of her, and yet not of her.

    Eventually these beings reached full consciousness, creating among the first chaotic and neutral aligned good beings. Eros stood tall among these beings even then. The purity and beauty of his voice and actions speaking more clearly than words of his benevolence and holiness.

    Eros possesses a medley of both chaos-infused and axiomatic blood; the twin essences singing a hypnotic hymn of near perfect harmony. As such, while whimsical and flighty, Eros is not above sticking to actions if he believes the course is ethically and morally correct; displaying a single-minded intensity devoid in most, or even the entirety, of chaotic good celestials, and indeed the rest of the Defenders of Freedoms. And while rigid in mindset and rule, Eros is aware of the harmony achieved and goodness proliferated with the changing of ways and discourse.

    Standing close to 9 feet in height, Eros is without a doubt the most beautiful of Angels. He possesses a perfect, classic beauty and appears as a perfectly featured and formed humanoid male with a slender, athletic body and platinum skin and velvet-black hair, tinged with strands of purple, viridian and blue. He tends to garments reminiscent of a noble's attire; perfectly proportioned to fit his configurations. A pair of great, blindingly luminescent white eagle-like wings sprout from his back. Moody and melancholic, Eros' voice is akin to ten thousand angels raised in harmonious joyous songful praise to the Heavens in spite of the incredible sadness that drags at his soul.

    Actually, no, :) nothing so complex as all that. Everything that I create is my own work, it's just I, uh, never got around to finishing them...should really do that, heh. What do you think of him so far?

    You do know that Eros is the Greek name for Cupid, right?

    And please use a smaller picture or shove the picture in spoiler tags.

    If, at any point, I write something that appears humorous, just chalk it up to your twisted imagination.

    Androgynous blood elves always make me chuckle.

    Seriously though, the first thing that I think when I see this is the undeniable knowledge that Eros has a sister - or a brother - who is a Chaotic angel. While Eros might represent 'pure,' unerring and unfading love, I'd suggest you also consider creating his more uncontrolled kin; the Angel of Hedonism. Erratic passions, explosive emotions, instant gratification and selfish ecstasy-seeking would be an excellent foil for Eros....and also opens up campaign/story ideas.
