adding a Shout Out
* ServantRace: Extremely high ranking angels have maids called “Sisters”. These are made by creating a female angel body for a Grigor. While the regular Sisters (identified by their long skirts) have the limited intelligence of the Grigor, Grigor who can think are turned into Stakers (identified by their short skirts and the marks on their foreheads). Grigor who can think are rare but particularly smart. In order to keep them from logically questioning orders, small, needle-like micro-devices (which limit their intellect and reason) are driven into their brains. This process is also inflicted on some fallen angels to create soldiers. These servants and soldiers have become a status symbol, the more an angel has, the more important the angel is seen to be.

distinction between Sisters and Stakers
** The Ironic Twist is that while "Rabbits" are the bastard children of angels (who aren't supposed to have kids at all), the angels themselves are [[spoiler:created by using / consuming the tortured flesh of the original angel Adam Kadamon, making them guilty of parental cannibalism before they're even born]].

* OurSpiritsAreDifferent: The very lowest angelic rank, the Grigor. Once the worker class angels on Earth, they had bodies similar to humans, so they were tempted by human women and sometimes produced demonic offspring. When their crimes were discovered, their intellect and emotions were suppressed, and they were stripped of corporeal form. Now a class of spirit angels, they inhabit the air all over Heaven, and continue to spawn bodiless offspring. A small handful of these offspring regain the ability to think and feel. Grigor are invisible and are paid little attention by the angels, beyond being a limitless energy source. By receiving the astral waves from the wings of angels, Grigor are used to balance the elements to support holy magic. Their life force is so weak that performing one task is a death sentence. For Stakers, see: ServantRace. * ServantRace: Extremely high ranking angels have Stakers as maids. These are made by creating a female angel body for a Grigor.

Adding a translational weirdness.
Added DiffLines:
** Heaven's Think Tanks get abbreviated to ST when it should be TT. This is because the original Japanese attempts to name them in English and they end up called "Shinku Tanku" - "ST".

Rewrite of Council of angels & adding Our angels, Our demons, & demon lords/arch devils.
* CouncilOfAngels: The Angelic Hierarchy is God's military, run by a specially created Monarchy. Their job is to keep peace on Earth, but since the latest divinely ordained Ruler is a perpetual toddler, power falls into the hands of his Prime Minister -a tyrannical dictator. Without a competent leader, the angels succumb to class division, and many turn to crime. This also inspires an organised rebellion. Truly holy angels are the noteworthy exception.

High level angels are well educated, and each holy Choir has its own Think Tank. Each Think Tank is presided over by a particular angel, who is directly accountable to Heaven's Ruler.

They have no loyalty to the angels or to the pure-blooded demons, and they're not fond of humans either. They keep to themselves, taking care of their own kingdom.

They are decidedly less human-looking than Evils. They follow no laws and there is no trust or loyalty between any of them.
