Raziel is a powerful archon, in the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying game.

Publication history[edit]

Raziel was first mentioned as one of the Hebdomad in Planes of Law (1995).[1] He was mentioned in the supplement Warriors of Heaven (1999).[2]

In third edition, Raziel appeared along with the other members of the Celestial Hebdomad in the Book of Exalted Deeds (2003).[3]

Description[edit]

The order of Thrones is ruled by the Tome Archons or Hebdomad, who each rule an entire layer of Mount Celestia. Raziel, the tome archon of battles whose symbol is the Bear, rules Mertion.

Realm[edit]

Raziel, known to his peers as the Firestar for his judicious wrath, rules Mertion from the city of Empyrea. As the patron of paladins and warriors, he holds no permanent fortress but can be found in any of the city's many hospitals and infirmaries, providing spiritual guidance and protection to the clerics and patients within.

Relationships[edit]

Al'Akbar dwells in Mertion, in Soqed Hezi, the City of Swords. The ruler of Soqed Hezi is the sword archon Bahram, known as the Conquering and Triumphant Fire, who answers only to Raziel.
