Oppression Angel

An (or the) oppression angel* is the planar servant of Myrwing, the deity of militant domination and greed (and, as with all fun pantheism gods, something random--birds of prey). They appear as a humanoid with a hawk's wing for a head, eagle's talons for breasts, and manacled chains made of red iron for arms. Oppression angels aid supplicants of Myrwing in protecting wealth amassed by might and in identifying those who would try to rob them. In combat, an oppression angels fire their manacle-arms at enemies, which then lock around necks, arms, or legs. While the angel itself can be killed, and the chains sundered, the manacles can only be removed by way of magic (such as Remove Curse**). This leaves would be vault-robbers marked so that the clergy of Myrwing can easily find them.
