A Supreme Ruler needs a supreme steed. He doesn’t QUITE breathe fire, but his origins are very suspect per the first time I wrote about him in The Serpent’s Tale. I wound up finding the name “Angaros” in The Book of Angels, a volume I bought years ago that I still use for a reference every now and then (I literally have it next to me right now because as you all know my memory is shit, and I couldn’t quite remember exactly what Angaros meant). It translates into “courier” from Persian, and I thought, “Well that’s a great name for a dark angel’s horse. Why the hell not?” There’s another term “Angiras,” which I thought said “Ankiras” until today so that’s a 13+ year mistake (oops), but…I like the subtle difference between Angaros and Ankiras and plan to use the latter for the name of the titular character’s hawk. Angiras is from ancient Sanskrit and means “divine spirit,” and I like that for a bird. The Holy Ghost is often represented as a dove so there you go.
