Angelic Choirs and Demonic Bands

With one exception, the choir on top matches the band on the bottom; e.g., a Seraph who Falls becomes a Balseraph, while a Balseraph who Redeems becomes a Seraph. The order here is from most holy/unholy (left) to most human-like (right).

Seraphim
The Most Holy, attuned to truth
Cherubim
The Guardians, attuned to protection
Ofanim
The Wheels, attuned to motion
Elohim
The Powers, attuned to emotion
Malakim*
The Virtues, attuned to honor
Kyriotates
The Dominations, attuned to multiplicity
Mercurians
Friends of Man, attuned to people
Baleraphs
The Liars
Djinn
The Stalkers
Calabim
The Destroyers
Habbalah
The Punishers
Lilim*
The Tempters
Shedim
The Corruptors
Impudites
The Takers
* Malakim and Lilim do not correspond to each other. Malakim cannot Fall, no matter how much Dissonance they accumulate. And Lilim are the unique creation of Lilith, not Fallen Angels; if they Redeem, they just become known as "Bright Lilim."

Blandine also has the Menunim (Messengers of Hope), a minor choir, while Beleth has the Pachadim (Frighteners), a minor band. Both are detailed in The Marches.
