"And [the Seraphim] were calling to one another:
Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of His glory."
-Book of Isaiah, chapter 6
Resonance and DissonanceEdit
Being the most divine Choir, their resonance is for the Truth -- that is, the true nature of the Symphony itself. Seraphim can tune themselves in to the Truth for periods of time, and judge the statements (sometimes also the non-spoken implications) of others according to that standard.
It is dissonant for a Seraph to lie. They can misdirect, refuse to answer, or respond with partial truths, but outright lying is a sign of a Seraph starting to slip away from their resonance.
While it's not necessarily formalized, all else being equal, Seraphim are generally expected to take the lead in angelic matters. They can sometimes come across as a little arrogant...which is particularly problematic when it dovetails with how inept they can be in corporeal affairs. (Lies of all sorts pervade the human world, and many Seraphim just can't deal with it.)
Using their resonance, Seraphim are supernatural investigators of the finest caliber. When performing at their best, they can essentially ask the universe itself what has happened and is happening. And, of course, plain old interrogation is generally child's play for a Seraph.
In celestial form, Seraphim are six-eyed serpents with feathered wings.
The Seraphic ability to tap into the Truth on a CD 6+ is limited by the extent to which the person speaking is involved in the matter. To act as a conduit to Truth, the speaker must be at least somewhat connected to the topic. Furthermore, the Truth that is revealed may be limited based on said connection. Thus, a Seraph cannot simply divine any fact by talking with any person -- but once they find the right people, they can learn a lot.
