It was not until the later days of the Third Age that the One put forth her decree that the Ilith'ari could not join with mortals and sire children. Before that time it was not uncommon for a member of the celestial court to join with a mortal and produce gifted and powerful progeny. Some of the greatest heroes of the Second Age were the result of a bond between celestial and mortal. As the many centuries passed, the blood of these remarkable unions did not fade entirely away. Even today there exist a small number who are blessed with a hint of Divine parentage.

An Angelic Bloodline means a rather significant amount of power for any character. Many heroes and villains over the centuries have carried the essence of the celestials within them. To be born of an Angelic Bloodline is to be destined for greatness.
An Angelic Bloodline grants a character the following abilities;
- Cure Moderate Wounds: The character may cast Cure Moderate Wounds as an innate spell three times per day.
- Angelic Heritage: The character gains the Disease Immunity Trait, but also gains the Vulnerable (Vile) Flaw.
- Celestial Affinity: The character becomes Immune to Poison and gains the ability to purchase Resist Magic regardless of prerequisites, but treats all Banishment spells and effects as Death effects and is affected by Circles of Protection as an extraplanar being. The character may also use magic items that are restricted to Angels Only. Chatûl characters gain the ability to Resist Poison five times a day, and are no longer vulnerable to poison.
A character with an Angelic Bloodline must represent it to some degree. This can be done by assuming one of the following makeup requirements; A shock of white hair, golden eyes (contacts), birthmark of a deity's holy symbol, blue or white celestial markings, golden scars or birthmarks, or other requirements as approved by a Game Master. Once you have chosen your character's distinguishing features, they may not be changed by any means short of Ritual Magic. This Trait will heavily influence the way the game progresses for your character, so consider carefully before choosing it.
