Kakkiel has seen storms of creation shape the earth and its growth. As one of Oannes's first angels, the Ofanite was there as his older brother, Vephar, and his siblings attempted to storm Heaven. Fighting alongside the Archangel of the Waters, he thundered against The Rebellion. When his Superior slew the traitorous Prince of the Oceans, he cheered and lit up the sky above him. When Belial slew Oannes, he rained tears.

After the death of Oannes, Kakkiel was adrift. He wandered between Heaven and the corporeal realm and served under many Archangels, seeking a new home that seemed to fit. Jean and Janus seemed the most likely candidates, though, like many remaining servitors of the Waters, Gabriel's fiery passion seemed to resonate. In the end, he swore new allegiance to Oannes's oldest friend, Janus. He requested only one thing: to be reformed as a Malakite, striving to strike harder and faster against Heaven's foes. Janus, after a second of careful consideration, granted the change.

Kakkiel distinguished himself in the field, acting as a tempest of change. Despite the pain in his heart from The Rebellion, he knew that fighting against corrupt government was virtuous, and helped humans organize strikes and rebellions against tyrants and corrupt politicians, storming their gates.

In 137 B.C., Kakkiel became the Angel of Storms. The Virtue never requested his Word; it was petitioned for by Janus, who sought to honor both a favored servitor and the "son" of an old, departed friend. Storms are agents of change which strike without mercy, just like Kakkiel.

Over the centuries, Kakkiel has become more and more powerful and some wonder if he'll be elevated to Archangel. He directs legions of angels, not all of them of the Wind, either. He has, in his service, angels of Lightning, the War, and Fire. Some of these angels are also former servitors of the Waters, naturally. While the Virtue can be very different from his creator, many can still feel the typhoon of passion that Oannes also had.

Kakkiel's demeanor is typically focused and electric. He does not suffer foolish questions easily and it's not uncommon for him to snap or thunder his requests. He moves fast and he expects his troops to be swept along with him or tossed out of the way. He's not angry or malicious, he simply retains his former nature of movement, gilding it with the uncompromising integrity only a Malakite has had.

Recently, Kakkiel's taken to smiling somewhat easier and, to the Archangel of Judgement's concern, has roared a fifth oath: The waters will rise!
