“The Nephilim were on the Earth in those days

 – and also afterward – when the Sons of God went to

the daughters of men and had children by them.

They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” NIV Gen. 6:4

 Biblical scholars espouse a number of opinions about the literal and theological meaning of this verse. Some believe “sons of God” were those men who were believers, attempting to live according to The One God’s laws. Continuing with this interpretation, the “daughters of men” were unbelievers who just happened to be female and sired the children of these otherwise “Godly” men. As a paranormal romance writer, however, I find the other group of scholars’ beliefs much more interesting.

According to some, the Nephilim were the offspring of angels, able to shift their naturally genderless form, and sire offspring with human women. As this coupling was forbidden, the offspring were cursed, evil, and eventually banished from the earth. In fact, some believe they were the main catalyst for The Great Deluge. They brought so much evil into the world that the great flood occurred to destroy them and cleanse the earth (dark progeny).

Imagine angelic beings with knowledge and abilities far beyond human understanding siring children with human women. What would these children be like? “The Alerians – Dark Progeny.” Survivors – Descendants of the original Nephilim.  Their home is a dimension set apart from heaven called Aleria. There, they live with the curse of their ancestors. As repentance for their forefathers’ sins, they have lived for centuries, engaged in the war against unrepentant fallen angels.

Human interaction is forbidden, and they face eventual extinction. Only one female is born for every 500 males. These females are treated like royalty, mating with the highest ranking males. The majority of males live as warriors and “Seekers,” no hope of ever feeling the touch of a woman. But things are about to change…
