A harbinger archon resembles a spinning orrery suffused with heavenly light whose planets and sun are made of tiny, glowing gems that shift in color depending on the archon's mood.1


Harbinger archons are sometimes chosen as familiars for spellcasters they deem worthy, and enjoy recitations of original parables and proverbs while being summoned.2 They might also choose to serve and protect a sufficiently pious non-spellcaster.3

In the Great Beyond

Harbingers serve as minions to Winlas, archon empyreal lord of ceremony and religious service.4

A harbinger archon serves as an engineer in the Entropic Hold, on the border of Heaven and the Maelstrom.5
