Them 3: The Archangel

Yeah, this guy. He's a mean son of a bitch that goes by the name the Archangel.

Are you my mummy?

The Archangel. Archie. Bringer of the Dead. Bad Motherfucker.

So yeah. The Archangel is, well, something. I don't think anyone has ever seen its true form. I don't think it has a true form. It takes the forms of the dead. Anyone who has ever died it can appear as. Sometimes as more than one dead person. So if you see Abraham Lincoln holding an axe running at you, then you can be pretty sure that's the Archangel. His favorite form, apparently, is a guy wearing a gas-mask.

Now, I say he can take the form of any dead person, but that's not entirely true. Apparently, if you are killed by another of Them (or one of Their servants) he can't take your form. Or something. Information is vague. Especially his motivations. Does he want to kill everyone in the whole world? I don't know, maybe. Sometimes it seems like he dicks around with people for shits and giggles.

Steward, crazy guy that he was, claimed that the Archangel was the afterlife, which is why he can control dead people. Since this is pretty depressing, I'm not going to believe it.

I have never encountered him, but one of my freelance operatives has seen him three times. I don't envy her.
