Celestials were powerful outsiders, typically of good alignment, and the cosmological counterpart to fiends. Just as fiends, celestials came from many different origins.

While the term "angel" properly referred to a subset of celestials, those on the Material Plane helped by any celestial being might claim to have been "visited by an angel".[4]

Types of CelestialsEdit

The following were the known types of celestials:

Angels
Angels were immortal beings empowered by the gods whom they served. An angel that committed an evil act became an outcast and was no longer necessarily bound to be a good creature.[5]
Archons
Natives of Celestia, archons (not to be confused with elemental archons) were personifications of law and good.
Eladrin
A race of Tel'Quessir commonly mistaken for angelic beings, eladrin were commonly found in the Feywild and on Toril, as well as Arvandor and the Gates of the Moon. Most eladrin were chaotic good.
Guardinals
The animal-featured guardinals were powerful immortals of neutral good alignment native to the House of Nature.[6]
Couatls 
Benevolent serpent-like creatures of great intellect that were created by an ancient and forgotten god.[7]
Ki-rins 
Powerful entities that opposed evil directly.[8]
Pegasi 
Native to the plane of Arborea, served gods of the Seldarine.[9]
