Angel Down is a Furry Webcomic hosted on ComicFury.

In the 24th century, nothing's really changed. Cybernetics are expensive and require lifelong treatments to maintain. Criminals get away scot-free while 'deviants' are persecuted for trying to fit in. And, as usual, the secret world of the supernatural wages a secret war with secret superpowered pawns.

Ex-Police officer Ariel Spence is gifted with the power to cheat death by the Archangel Azriel. Now, she must work with the Seraphim Foundation to unlock the secrets of her powers, killing all threats to Earth in her way.
