Way of the Wicked
Barakiel is a powerful Beryl who incarnates the concepts of order and perfection. She thinks of herself as the greatest and highest of all powers, outdone only by C`iel herself, the only entity she admires and worships. The goal of her philosophy is to lead all civilizations into a perfect order of absolute equality. She thinks the way to achieve this is by establishing strict laws that govern every aspect of human life. She abhors chaos and instability, and fosters the advancement of the exact sciences, like mathematics and mechanics. She has a tense relationship with her sisters; in her opinion all of them are weak and imperfect. Her attitude has caused several open conflicts with Mikael, whose privileged position next to their Master she covets. She is extremely strict with her chosen ones and followers and demands them to maintain a scrupulous order and never to make mistakes. Those who fail rarely receive a second chance to please her. She is vain and likes to feel adored in all of the identities she takes on as a deity of order, law and the sciences. She synchronizes with narcissistic people who are endowed with great abilities or powers and who above all conduct their lives in an orderly fashion. She also favors scientists and those who worship her in any of her faces.
