The man now known as The Judge was once Seraph’s closest confidant. After the Magic Wars, he secretly blamed Seraph for the destruction others caused in her name. (Despite the fact that Seraph condemned both sides of the conflict)
The Judge plotted and planned for months, amassing vast power and undermining all of Seraph’s work, until he finally struck. He attacked Seraph physically, mentally and emotionally when she was already at her lowest point, thanks in no small part to the Judge’s scheming.
This betrayal left Seraph reeling. The Judge had come closer than anyone ever had to killing the angel. Seraph managed to defeat the Judge with the aid of her allies and her physical wounds eventually healed. The emotional pain, however, would take far longer to heal.
