Meet Sable

Updated: Feb 11, 2020

Sable is the nominal Main Character (MC, to use the parlance) of The Chronicles of Enoch. He is at the centre of the narrative and the closest confidant of Enoch himself. He is also, as far as he is concerned, damned for all eternity.

He is certain that The Creator's punishment of Atlantis and his own survival (or exile for eternity on Earth) was punishment for simply being him. He will be the first to tell you how unfair this is but he will also be the last to complain about it.

All I remember is that I entered that damnable Temple of Lucifer's with all of my "uncles" as somebody else and came out some time later as Sable with some interesting scars on my chest. Scars which glowed with a light that wasn't quite light.

I have learned a lot since then but not what we'd consider the most important part; who am I?

What I am is simple to answer.

I am a Nephilim of what is called the First Generation; the direct Progency of the Fallen and mortal women (the first generation of beings that at least looked human anyway). My mother died during my birth, I am told, I still miss this women I never knew with my eyes open. My father, the argument goes, is Abaddon but I am not the only one to have some doubts about that.

OK, I favour my mother in a great many things; the colour of my hair, the shape of my face, my nose, and the form of my eyes but, they cont
