History

I always liked the idea of fallen angels when I was younger. I was Arakiel for a while, but that name is around here and there, so I moved on to this one, because I have seen no one using it :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chazaqiel

Chazaqiel (Aramaic: זיקיאל, Greek: Εζεκιήλ), also Êzêqêêl, was the 8th Watcher of the 20 leaders of the 200 fallen angels that are mentioned in an ancient work called The Book of Enoch. The name means "cloud of God", which is fitting since it was said that Chazaqiel taught men the knowledge of the clouds, meteorology. Michael Knibb[1] translates this angel as being the "Shooting star of God".

I wanted to make a bad-ass wind stance monk in DnD Online, so merged the words Zephyr, as in wind, with Sephiroth from final fantasy, for being a bad-ass. It came out as Zephyroth which I liked and have stuck with since.
