A Cherub Angel by Boschian-Fantasies A Cherub Angel by Boschian-Fantasies

The Cherub (aka. The Three Faced Angels): The Cherub clan are one of the first clans recorded in human history.


The Cherubs are called Three Faced Angels for a reason. 

That reason being that they have one human face, and two animal like faces.
They can spin their heads around and represent any of the three faces as pleased.


To humans, the Cherub's appearance was so horrifying to them, that the Cherub had to tell the humans “Fear not! We mean no harm!” 
However, not all humans heeded those words, so sometimes, the Cherub had to shape shift into a less menacing form.


Sometimes, humans have confused the Cherub clan with the Putto clan.
Though the two are completely different races of angel.

It's refreshing to see a cherub that resembles its original biblical appearance rather the the baby-like putto angels.

Thank you.

Remember how in world mythology (Biblical or otherwise), that angels were bad ass voluntary shape shifters who took no crap from their enemies?

Yeah, those were the glory days....

But sadly, most modern media dealing with angels is usually sickeningly sweet glurge bull shit that would give even Barney the Dinosaur diabetes. 

But here I am, restoring the glory days of yore! :happybounce:

Cough cough, Bayonetta's angels are pretty awesome in terms of being horrifying yet majestic at the same time...

And also, go check out the manga "666 Satan" which has some of the most bazaar looking angels and demons :)
