It is said that when the divine spell, Mass Revival, is cast, it summons an angelic form to appear as the caster's fallen allies rise again.[6]

When the spell Divine Ascension is cast, the caster transforms into a "beautiful",[7] angelic version of themselves. Their skin, hair, and nails change into metal — silver, bronze, or gold, and they gain the ability to cast healing faster.[7]
