: Earth Job
: Tristan works as a bicycle courier carrying packages throughout the city. Even when he is zipping through traffic, he has a calmness about him that is almost eerie. People often don’t know what to think of him. Like everyone in his profession, he has had some awful spills, but he has never been hurt badly. He has walked away from or avoided crashes that he shouldn't have been able to, all without seeming phased in the least.Powers/Innate
Tristain heals from wounds faster than most humans. It isn’t instant healing, but minor cuts, scrapes, and bruises heal in about twenty minutes. Serious lacerations could take several hours or even a day. Broken bones might heal in a couple days if set properly. Although his wounds mend quickly, he could easily die from blood loss far before they had a chance to heal. This ability causes Tristan to age slightly slower than most humans. He appears to age only one year for every five a normal human would age.
He has a presence about him that mortals and demons pick up on, but just can't place. At a glance it seems like resolute calm, but that belies a greater inner strength. Mortals in his proximity begin to feel at peace and begin to trust him. Demons in his proximity quickly begin to find his presence nauseating.
Tristan can usually see through the guise of demons and angels. He may not know the non-human's identity immediately, but he will know that the person is not what they appear to be. The longer he looks at the disguise, the more he can determine about the thing underneath the mask. The stronger the angel/demon, the longer it takes to see through their disguise.
For short periods of time (5-10 minutes) Tristan can shape the divine energy surrounding him to take the form of an angel. Although the manifestation around him will be visible to divine and demonic beings, humans will just see him floating in midair. The divine energy around him protects his body from physical harm and allows him to fly. A divine sword also appears at his avatar's side to aid him in battle. The more power he expends, the shorter the overall duration of this form.
Exiting this form leaves him exhausted. The more he uses it, the more disconnected he feels from humanity. He is afraid that someday it will consume him and he will be lost.Weapons
Tristan uses the tools that already exist on earth to help him fight when needed. Although most of his angelic memories were lost, he remembered mixtures of herbs and rituals that could be used to bind demons. Given enough preparation he can bind most minor demons.
He has also made a point of putting a little charm over his cycling gloves. Demons touched by them are repulsed and feel a wave of burning agony.History
Tristan was at death's door when the angel first met him. He was strong and young. A demon had savagely and mercilessly torn him to shreds. Too many had died, yet the angel could do nothing for them. The angel was not of the angelic army. It had no shining armor or gleaming spear. It couldn't have the will to protect humankind while bound to it's duties. The young man, however, had the will and the inner strength to wield it.
Sensing the young man's purpose, the angel sacrificed himself to save the man. The angel's power healed him and granted him the means to fight the demons who had done him harm and would harm others. It instilled in him the mantra, “Humankind must survive.”.
With the angel's memories all but gone, Tristan lives on. He isn't an angel, but is feels less and less connected with the human world. He has trouble recalling memories, faces,and names from before his transformation and his memories continue to slowly fade. He is older than he appears, almost 50. He fears that someday his own identity will be consumed and only his mission will remain.
