Of Angels and Demons in FALL

I am not a fan of horror.  In fact, while I was working on FALL, any time I had to write a scary scene, I had to wait until the weekends when a friend could hang out for a bit.

Nevertheless, having to research aspects of the Heavenly Host and their dark counterparts was not exactly enjoyable for me.  My mother gave me a book called A Dictionary of Angels during my initial research. I found it to be immensely helpful as it also covered the subject of Fallen Angels, which I refer to as “Darks” in FALL.

I learned that there is a hierarchy in Heaven as there is in Hell.  Everything that is good and light has a dark and fraudulent counterpart version.

For the purpose of organizing the bad guys in FALL, I selected Francis Barret’s description of the hierarchy of Darkness from his book, The Magus (1801) The list ranks the Dark’s from highest level to the lowest:

  • False gods
  • Spirits of Lying
  • Vessels of Iniquity
  • Revengers
  • Imitators
  • Aerial Powers
  • Furies
  • Caluminators
  • Maligenii

Drogo, one of the “Darks” in FALL, is a “False god” and rules the area of Los Angeles.  His dark presence was fun to write, but at the same time, I couldn’t do it without someone in the room with me.

The Darks in FALL appear as solemn, dark-clothed people.

Needless to say, I didn’t spend a lot of time writing about the Dark things in FALL, but just enough to give contrast for the Good to do their thing.
