The Grigori

There are two popular stories about Fallen Angels, one if of Lucifer and the other of Azazel and his posse of 200 Angels.

We will commence Fallen Angels Sunday with the story of these 200 beautiful Angels with singed wings led by Azazel, who are said to have defected from God not out of pride or jealousy for the human race but because they fell in love, coupled and married human women. That alone is the perfect premise for a good and steamy bedtime companion don't you think? No wonder countless stories are written based on this legend.

The Watchers or Grigori are said to be a group of angels sent by God here on Earth to watch over humans. Over time these Sons of God found human women very desirable and decided to seduce, mate and procreate with them. The result of these unions gave birth to a new race called the Nephilim, who are said to be these malicious giants who went about raping the Earth and putting God's beloved mankind to danger. I guess Cassie Clare's world are the watered down versions of the original race, maybe they also follow Darwin's theory of evolution? No?

When men began to multiply on earth and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw how beautiful the daughters of man were, and so they took for their wives as many of them as they chose. Then the Lord said: "My spirit shall not remain in man forever, since he is but flesh. His days shall comprise one hundred and twenty years." At that time the Nephilim appeared on earth (as well as later), after the sons of God had intercourse with the daughters of man, who bore them sons. They were the heroes of old, the men of renown. (Gen 6:1-4)

The apocryphal Book of Enoch (Noah's great-grandfather) also alleged that The Great Flood was sent by God to rid the Earth of these abominable creatures. And though the Nephilim are said to have died by this, it is believed that the Grigori are still among us until Judgment Day. So who knows, one random trip to the pharmacy, a midnight run to the grocery or even an afternoon jog might lead us to these heavenly creatures.

This might be a myth or some fanciful tale written during xBCE to explain phenomenon that was beyond human comprehension due to lack of knowledge and technology. Some people might even strike the possibility of this tale as completely false and even blasphemous. But for the love of fiction, romance and fantastic storytelling, let's pretend that this story is real and maybe if we're lucky we'll get a little taste of heaven.

No wonder Luce Price and Nora Grey would rather fall from the graces of heaven than be parted from their sexy and heavenly Angels.


  1. Coincidentally, our book club just finished a book about Grigori, among other angels and demons. I HIGHLY recommend it. It's a self published book, and it's shockingly good, especially considering that. It's almost non-stop action and excitement.

    It's called Devil's Hand by M.E. Patterson
    Kindle and Nook additions are only 3$ (thought there is a paperback too on Amazon).

  2. I'll look forward to reading your review about it.
