All Malakim have feathered wings. The feathers can be a range of different colours - black, gray and white. Only the Malakim with the whitest wings with no colour at all are chosen to be appart of Asterian Guard.
Powers & Abilities
Like all the Vanir, Malakim naturally possess enhanced strength, speed, and regenerative abilities that make them far stronger than humans. But as a result of being created by the Asteri themselves, Malakim are also physically much stronger than other Vanir, even capable of contending with Fae, and are arguably one of the strongest races on Midgard. Through their wings, they are able to fly at high speeds, although not as quick as aerial vehicles such as helicopters and jets.
Malakim - ordinary or Archangel - also possess magic that are related to the sky such as summoning rain, storms and tornados, that are described as "hideous" and "destructive". For instance Sandriel and Isaiah are able to control and summon wind. Archangels like Micah could summon more destructive winds capable of even burning their vicitms, while Malakim such as Hunt possess the power to harness lightning, an ability that even other angels consider as unheard of. Bryce described that a powerful ordinary angel's power might level a building, while an Archangel's power could destroy an entire metropolis. Though the source of the strength difference between angels and Archangels is currently unknown, there are theories that could pertain to the differences, such as the careful breeding orders of Asteri or the extra power emerging in different bloodlines. Nevertheless, Malakim are the most respected and feared of all Midgard, beneath the Asteri.
