Sword archons appear as mostly ordinary humans – except most ordinary humans don’t have wings in place of arms. Their hair is silvery, and their eyes glow with inner light. They wear collars, leg greaves, and breastplates.
Combat: The sword archon can mold its flesh to grow two arms which hardens to the form of magic blades at the forearms. It can wield these blades as holy flaming longswords.
Habitat/Society: Swords carry messages from tome archons (and sometimes from the powers themselves) to all of Mount Celestia’s layers. These missives proclaim the word of the higher ranking archons – usually gems of wisdom disseminated for the benefit of lower-level archons. Thus, the arrival of a sword is always regarded with some anticipation, even if the message is of impending war.
Ecology: Sword archons aren’t known to consume anything.
