In ancient angelology, the highest and most mysterious angels were known as the Seraphim. They were so singular and pure -- or so simple, as theologians put it -- that there was no gap between what they did and what they were. They were at once beings and forces, universal powers and distinct spirits. It is the same with the 5 HDW Elementals. They stand above, below, behind, and within the expressions of awe manifest through every animal, in every star, with every wind.
