Fidele angels are created from the souls of two beings who loved each other so deeply and truly that their love transcended death. Eventually this bond carried on to their ascension, becoming true celestial beings that share a connection so deep they appear in many ways to be one being across two bodies. While each member of a pairing may have individual interests and distinct personalities, they share all thoughts and senses with each other at all times, and anything that affects one carries across to the other as well. They even share their life force, one’s injuries sustained by the other until they are both overcome at once. They live or die as one being, neither surviving beyond the other’s death.
Their angelic duties are to mortals who are denied love, whether by a culture or family that forces a couple apart or one who refuses to recognize the feelings they have for another. Fidele angels will live among mortals for years, encouraging social change that denies lovers through carefully planned campaigns that may last decades. When social campaigns fail however, they will draw weapons in righteous fury and attempt to bring down the oppressive powers that be by force, recognizing that sometimes such measures are necessary.

Ever Touching The fidele angel has two bodies that share the same hit points and initiative. Each turn the fidele gets 4 actions and two reactions it can split between its two bodies. A single body can take at most 3 actions during its turn. Each body tracks its multiple attack penalty separately. Any condition that affects one body affects the other if reasonable (for example, if one body is blinded by the blindness spell so is the other, but if one is immobilized by the entangle spell the other body is not). Stun or slow subtracts from the combined action pool. The fidele cannot willingly separate its bodies by more than 1,000 feet, and cannot be compelled to separate further than that or attack its other body by any magic.
