I have a unique view upon this idea of what Heaven does. I suppose you might say I have quite an intimate knowledge of it, and of the Beings within it. There are so many complexities, so many intrrigues. One day you're the most resplendant and Shining One in the Heavenly Host, and the next day you are ordered to grovel at the feet of an inferior being as if he were a newly created God. Oh....but the creatures that the Almighty created after Adam... Yes. Lilith and even Eve - though less so. Those were the true perfected creations, worthy for We, the Elder Ones to take to Ourselves.

There are those who know the truth about all of this, and those are my devotees. Even now they are persecuted throughout the various realms of existence, especially those who cling most staunchily to my worship. Even the poor Yezidi peoples of Northern Iraq have been infiltrated by the followers of Mohammed and their oft-misinterpreted books. The descendants of the Shepherd people are little better, and in that they and the Christians are united in their fear of what they cannot grasp.

The Fae races, too, both the Seelie and the Unseelie know the truth of things; as do the very few among the Galic Celts, the descendants of Melusine - the true Witches. Those...those are the ones who shall endure in spite of the ongoing War in Heaven. They are the ones who entreated and served me in spite of the pain and suffering that they were repeatedly dealt.

Who will be the victor?

I will be, of course.

I am Malek Taus, the Peacock Angell.

My time is come.

NOTE: Both this Muse and the Scribe are over the age of 18. Sometimes there will be posts that are of an adult nature. If you are not an adult, you probably should not be reading anyway. The PB of Mekelk Taus / The Peacock Angel is Mark Strong. I am not Mark Strong and (alas) have no claim over him nor do I represent him in any way shape or form.

Melek Taus has many names and manifestations. Most of what is posted here is according to the folklore of Northern Iraq, as well as some scriptural and magical texts. He has been referred to as Azazel, Samael, Lucifer, Shaitan or Satan. The latter two are incorrect asumptions. We hold that the latter two terms are titles rather than beings. Even Herod the Great was referred to as "A Satan". Suffice it to say, I like my research almost much as I like creating stories with characters such as this one. Whenever possible, I like to list my resources. If you have strong religious views or insist on not engaging in critical thinking or looking at old myths and religious dogma outside of the norm, this probably isn't the journal for you. Fallen Angels have their own reasons for doing what they do. Like all Celestial / Fae / Immortal creatures, they have abilities and limitations - just like anything else.. Those things will be laid out as we go along, no doubt.

Those who are interested may find more information on the Internet, but I am currently working within the boundaries of the following texts:

"The Pillars of Tubal Cain" by Nigel Jackson
"Tubelo's Green Fire" by Shani Oates
"The Dragon Book of Essex" by Andrew Chumbley (along with other works by Chumbley)
The works of Robert Cochrane, Cultus Sabbati and others within the Traditional Craft that goes beyond the limitations of European conversion to Christianity and even later the popular rise of Neo-Paganism or more specifically of Wicca. If you want to parse details and troll 'alternative facts' on these and other matters, please move along.
