Barachiel is the ally of Meyne and a holy, righteous figure. He was a jendau when mortal, and lives on the world instead of within the deific realms. However, he is bound to the Oaken Throne, the seat of ownership which harnesses Ashe'ileq's power. It is from here that he rules over his kin with a benevolent hand and spreads his message of guardianship, protection, and living righteously. His power extends beyond the preservation of life though, and also encompasses bringing new life into the world.

All jendau worship Barachiel, though any who seek to protect those who cannot protect themselves have been known to become Lionites. He is also the god of life, and many midwives and others dealing with birth pay him homage.
Barachiel is a solidly-muscled leonine humanoid. His head is fully a lion's head, complete with thick mane. His body is covered in white fur. He has golden eyes and a gentle but gruff voice. Huge pearly white wings sprout from his back.
