Avacyn 1
I am Avacyn. I am to protect.

Let the flames ignore the sinless.
~ Avacyn


Avacyn is an archangel of Innistrad, created by planeswalker Sorin Markov in order to ensure a balance between light and darkness on the plane and act as a protector to humanity. She was entrusted with maintenance of the plane by Sorin, and for a while was able to maintain relative equilibrium between the forces of darkness and the forces of light. So great was her influence that she inspired a church in her namesake and came to command a host of other angels. However, she was challenged by the demon Griselbrand, and after days of fighting both ended up sealed in the Helvault, a creation of Nahiri. This would upset the precarious balance of the plane, and for a while dark forces such as vampires and werewolves ran rampant. After the destruction of the Helvault, Avacyn was able to lead humanity to an age of prosperity lasting about a year, before succumbing to the influence of Emrakul and ultimately leading genocidal crusades against humanity, having become the very thing she was created to protect against.

She alone is the reason humans on the plane of Innistrad are able to survive. Fought Griselbrand on even terms, a Demon Liliana Vess required the use of the Chain Veil to destroy.
