The Angels are a class of individuals who have chosen to sacrifice all mortal possessions and their former ways of life, in order to fully dedicate themselves to helping their fellow players. Angel aid also differs from the direct material aid often associated with the hero class. Angels have given up fighting and getting equipment; instead they try to help with advice and guidance, as well as with CRs and emergency situations. The role of the Angel class is that of a teacher/mentor to the MUD, using personal experience with the game to help guide fellow players to become better MUDders.
The Angels assist the Immortals in making Avatar an enjoyable place to play. Angels cannot prevent mortals from encountering affliction and danger, but they can and will help mortals learn to cope with such occurrences. Angels stand ready to welcome strangers to our realm and to assist even the smallest of Avatar's citizens.
Angels abide by the code of their kind. While they will offer quick help in true emergencies, the best assistance they offer is that of teaching and mentoring. Angels have a special place in their hearts for mortals who are willing to learn the ways of Avatar and work at solving their own problems.
