When Playing Castiel, these are his general tactics outside of a pre-existing plan.

Castiel will take whatever quick action makes the most sense then fly into the face of
any challenger. He will provoke AoO’s if it will help a fellow combatant get into
combat without suffering such attacks.

Castiel attempts to stay up close and personal with the biggest baddest beat stick
the enemy throws at the group unless another tank takes that role, then he will go
after the highest priority kill target.

Castiel will use Divine Interfearance to try to prevent a crit on an ally within 30’
and Liberating Command if he or an ally get’s grappled. The Aura of the Golden Cocoon
is a last ditch effort to save a comrade once daily.



The Key to Castiel is using his swift actions effectively:
Spell Perfection Quicken (Heal) (5/day) – Heal 174 HP
Quicken Spell-Like Ability (Dispel Magic) (3/day) – add 20 to the roll
Spell Perfection Quicken Extended (Divine Power) (3/day) – +6 luck bonus to hit and dmg
Shield of Faith – Quicken (1/day) – +5 Deflection AC Use when facing non-evil enemies
Liberating Command (6/day) – When an ally is grappled, immediatly roll escape art and add 20
Smite Evil (1/day) Against evil it gives: +10 to hit, +10 to AC, +3 to dmg ( +6 vs outsider, undead, or dragon instead on first attack)



Castiel’s defenses:
– AC 43 (47 vs Evil or 53 if smiting)
– SR 31
– Angel Protective Aura (Magic Circle Against Evil and Lesser Globe of Invulnerability)
– DR 10/Evil
– Regeneration 10/Evil
– True Seeing
– Immune to Acid and Cold
– Resistance to Fire 30
– Resistance to Electrcity 10 (If given prep time Castiel buffs himself with
Extended (From a Lesser Rod) Resist Energy
Electricity before entering a hostile
environment which lasts 6 hours 40 minutes)

Bio:

“I am the Divine infused with the power of mortals. And I am your end!”


What has Castiel been up to


Castiel has for centuries commanded armies of angels under Pelor against the forces of darkness. War is all he has known, generations of men have been born and died over the course of only one of his planar campaigns. Castiel was present at the first dawn that elven eyes gazed upon.

The rise of Tharzidun has been known by the gods for some time but never directly acted upon for it is mortal power bringing about his rise. However, Now that Pelor has been weakened, Castiel has been sent to the Flaness in disguise to find and deal covertly with the threat rather than sending an army and weakening heaven’s forces locked in constant battle with those of hell and the abyss.

He will work with the mortals and gain allies where he can, even less savory ones as long as their ultimate goal is bring about the downfall of Tharzidun.


Castiel learns to deal with mortals


Castiel’s attempt to blend in with the mortals was cut short as the group was set upon by hordes of demonic and devilish creatures and he revealed his true identity to draw the attacks of the foul beasts.

Later working out a deal with the practitioner of arcane magic he found himself protected by force magic which stroked his desire to wade into the fray all the more.

Soon after he was asked by his mortal companions if he would like to wear the belongings of the deceased. Initially the mere idea of such a thing was foul. For centuries Castiel has slaughtered Demons and Devils with his army by the thousands, and no self respecting angel would pick up and use one of their barbaric insidious looking weapons. And yet this creature wore a plain simple ring, something that would not be immediately recognized on sight as coming from such a foul beast, and perhaps was not even forged by dark magics for the purpose of wiping out good. Perhaps it was merely taken from a mortal hand at far too young of an age. Without an endless army of Angels at his back, Castiel decided to accept such an offer needing all the help he could get dealing with the looming threat ahead, perhaps so great a threat as to be that responsible for Pelor’s setback.

While summarily wiping the floor with the opposition as Castiel had done for millennia, one of his mortal companions stopped attacking and demanded the surrender of the last remaining combatant. Surrender? None so dedicated to their cause would consider such a thing, Castiel would gladly spend his dying breath valiantly fighting a hopeless cause than to…surrender. Why would this follower of Heironeous even ask such a thing? Does he not respect this combatant’s honor? Were Castiel to have asked for demon lord Atramedes to surrender at the battle of Fleshrender’s Descent centuries ago he would have done worse to the demon’s honor than to slay him in battle as he did. To tell a foe you fear him so little as to let him go, it speaks of disdain, it smacks of hubris, it is everything he had learned Heironeous was not and here was a paladin propagating it. Confused at this turn of events Castiel tried to knock him out rather than slay him as a worthy opponent. Perhaps since he was a lowly minion the paladin thought he could extract some vital information from him. Understanding these mortal dynamics is going to take time.

Further confusion abounds, Castiel’s conversation with the mortal practitioner of arcane magic known as Gilnaeus revealed he was not fully committed to the cause. He is an incredibly potent ally to be sure, but through conversation he stated he would not give his all, his dying breath to accomplish the goal. Why would a mortal say such a thing and then continually wade into such dangerous situations as present themselves during this quest? Without commitment there is no purpose! What is this mortal’s purpose? Does he secretly desire death or just the thrill of danger to continually put himself in harms way? If so can he be relied on when things truly become difficult? His power is undeniable, as he was able to summon one of my elder brothers, Solisar. Greatly respected and widely feared as one of the commanders of all of Heaven’s armies. He speaks and things happen to make his words so. And yet here this mortal elf brought him into whatever forsaken plane of existence we have wound up on to fight at his side. Perhaps things will never get so tough that this mortal will find his breaking point and turn tail, but I must expect that it may happen and prepare for it. Until it does, he is truly a valuable ally.

One thing is certain, fighting alongside mortals will be a far different experience than fighting alongside the entire host of heaven as it charges into battle. Perhaps Pelor foresaw the lessons I will learn as valuable experience upon my return to heaven’s bosom and sent me here prior to his falling. As long as we continue to move towards the ultimate goal of stopping this evil I will remain with these mortals and endeavor to learn what makes them so different from myself.

Confusing but fascinating creatures these.
