A deva is a category of angel, part of those known as celestial stewards. Celestial stewards are those angels who directly serve the gods of the Celestial Planes, and include devas, lights, planetars, and solars.[3]

There are three types of devas: astral devas, monadic devas, and movanic devas.[3]

Astral devaEdit

The golden-hued astral devas chiefly exist to battle fiends in the Fiendish Planes. They also travel the Astral Plane to rescue lost or stranded mortals of good alignment.[3]

Monadic devaEdit

The dark-skinned, green-eyed monadic devas exist to watch over the Elemental Chaos for the gods of Good. They can survive any elemental environment without ill effect.[3]

Movanic devaEdit

The milky-white movanic devas travel the Prime Material Plane to aid prominent followers of the gods of good in times of great need. While they more often appear disguised as humanoids or animals, they can manifest in their winged angelic form, with shining silver hair and piercing silver eyes, if this suits their needs.[3]
