The Shattered Star
Quite possibly our most powerful celestial ally Zairies serves Sarenrae unconditionally.
Zairies has been watching the group at Sarenrae’s command, especially the group’s Wizard and Clerical Acolyte Jaidin. Zairies sees the plight of the group and while feeling a bit detached he realizes that the group is going to face the wrath of the hordes of Hell at some point. He is a General in the Armies of the Sun and would like nothing else than to assist the Emissars in defeating the tyrants that spill from the mouth of the aforementioned Outer Plane of existence. Zairies wields a Quarterstaff rather than the traditional Greatsword of most of his Planetarian peers. While potent in all manner of melee combat it is the wisdom of an Angel of Sarenrae’s Host that keeps Zairies head and shoulders above many of his brethren. Soft spoken and mild-mannered Zairies saves his indignation for powerful Devils that tempt and sway the spirits and even souls of good creatures. This Planetar has Solars that far exceed his humble position and set of Angelic powers, yet Zairies has gained the favor of the Goddess of the Sun on multiple occasions. Perhaps the safe-keeping of a certain Jaidin Al’-Hazir and his allies will prove to be the final deed before advancing to the Eighth Rank of Celestial Prominence and becoming truly like the Goddess of the Sun as a new-born Solar and a Light when all others Fade. Zairies hopes this with all his being because Jaidin Al’-Hazir and his companions are on a collision course with powers few will ever confront.
Muscular, bald, and tall, this humanoid creature has emerald skin and two pairs of shining, white-feathered wings.

Spells Planetars cast divine spells as 16th-level clerics. They do not gain access to domains or other cleric abilities.
Planetars are the generals of celestial armies. A typical planetar stands 9 feet tall and weighs 500 pounds. They focus on combat and the destruction of evil; though they understand diplomacy, a planetar would rather lead the charge against an army of fiends than negotiate peace.
