Background

Seraph is an angelic warrior in service to Heaven. She has periodically been sent to Earth to destroy God’s enemies — in recent years, she was dispatched to Grove’s Folly to hunt down and kill the Straw-Man. Realizing that she was unfamiliar with the modern world, she found a human servant named Jim Phelps. Phelps had murdered his childhood abuser and Seraph covered it up in return for Phelps’ fealty. Unlike the angels found in popular culture, Seraph was not above killing innocents or embracing a sinner if it suited her ultimate goal. Unfortunately for her, the Straw-Man was a more capable foe than she expected: after severing one of her wings, the tatterdemalion slew her physical form, dispatching her immortal soul back to Heaven (Straw-Man Volume One). A couple of years later, she was part of Heaven’s invasion force when the gates to both Heaven and Hell were thrown open in Geneva, but she played a minor role in the overall event (Calavera Volume One). It seems likely that she will eventually cross paths with the Straw-Man again.
