"As the Angel of Death passed over Egypt and took the pharaoh's firstborn. As the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were burned for their wickedness. As the waters of the great flood washed the world clean of man's iniquity. My blade will cleanse humanity of its ills."

Orion is a zealot angel who escaped Purgatory. As a former member of the Heavenly Host, Orion wishes to purge the world of all sin, viewing humanity as sinful and expendable.

History[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

The earliest known time that Orion was on Earth was in 79 A.D. There, he caused Mount Vesuvius to erupt, killing the population of Pompeii. He also appeared in Syria in 526 A.D. at the site of the Antioch Earthquake, and in 541 A.D. in Byzantium within weeks of the Justinian Plague.

Orion once battled the Headless Horseman at Valley Forge. He was defeated by Death and, upon defeat, Orion was trapped in Purgatory for two hundred years. When Moloch was killed by Jeremy with the Sword of Methuselah, he claims that Purgatory shook, allowing him to escape with several other minor demons.[1]

Escaping Purgatory[edit | edit source]

Once escaping Purgatory, Orion ran into the Witnesses, Abbie and Ichabod, while battling demons. He then gave Abbie a symbol so she could summoned him. As he attempted to kill death with his Halo Weapon and steal his power with it to destroy the contaminated and sinful Sleepy Hollow, Katrina released the Horseman and Orion began his hunt. After Ichabod and Abbie discovered the angel's true purpose, the Witnesses sought to defeat Orion and the angel's halo was destroyed by Ichabod using the Horseman's axe. Defeated, Orion flew off, avoiding another defeat by Death.

However, despite their "falling out", Abbie kept Orion's symbol, implying she still considered him as a friend.[1]
