Making up the halls of deities or serving as advisors to mortal kings, are the celestial ministers. Masters of debate and philosophy, the calling of these asura is learning and understanding. They attempt to preserve lore, sometimes running libraries, and sometimes serving as living memories of events long past.
Celestial ministers are fond of mortal kind, and tend to speak out on the behalf of mortals. They typically have a roster full of mortal and immortal contacts they can call upon when needed.
