Angel of America

The Angel is one of seven celestial beings who form the Continental Principalities, one representative in Heaven for each continent on Earth. She is the Continental Principality of America, a beautiful being with magnificent gray wings. In Millennium Approaches her appearance is preceded by strange lights, music, voices, and ghostly messengers. She crashes through Prior's ceiling at the end of Millennium Approaches to tell him he has been chosen as the Prophet who will help the world stop changing and return God to Heaven.
