“I want to be a demon,” the Nephilim said, “Even if I have to barter my wings for horns and a tail. I want to be a demon.”

The priest furrowed his brow as he heard the confession, "Your lineage is half Divine, why would you give that up to be beyond the reach of redemption?”

“Because demons have fun. They enjoy their existence. Not all about duty and sacrifice. If that’s my only legacy, then my duty to myself is to sacrifice my birthright to a soul who actually deserves access to Heaven. I don’t want to spend my days in struggle and despair. I’ve come to say goodbye, Father. If any come looking for me, simply say, He is not here. He is fallen.”
