  Xaphania   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Xaphania is a character in the His Dark Materials trilogy by English author Philip Pullman.
This was the start of the first struggle against the Kingdom, Xaphania being the leader of the rebel angels who intervened in human evolution to give mankind consciousness some thirty thousand years ago.
Towards the end of trilogy, and after the defeat of the Authority's forces, it is Xaphania who explains to Will and Lyra Belacqua that all the windows between the worlds must be sealed to prevent Dust from leaking away into the abyss, and that the subtle knife must be destroyed.

 Xaphania - free-definition   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Xaphania first appears in the third book of the trilogy, The Amber Spyglass, at a council of Asriel's commanders.
Like all Pullman's angels, she appears naked, winged and luminous; due to her high rank and great age, she is clearly visible to corporeal beings.
As he explains to Will Parry, she discovered that the Authority had lied to the other angels regarding his status as the original Creator and so was banished from the Clouded Mountain.

 The Authority (His Dark Materials)
The Authority in Philip Pullman's trilogy of novels His Dark Materials is the equivalent of God - or according to Pullman the God of the Inquisition.
The Authority was the first angel who (according to the angel Xaphania) allegedly seized power and claimed to be the creator of the multiverse.
The two are opposed by Lord Asriel, for whom Xaphania will fight, who wishes to overthrow their power and replace it with a Republic of Heaven.

 The World of Vidua - History of Vidua   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The nearby world of Azryia, homeworld of such great heroes as the angel Xaphania, the kobold Magnus, and the fire demon Vivit, was finally overrun by the forces of Aurchanas.
She was later discovered to be the Azrian angel, Xaphania.
She was quickly followed by Vivit Zenithia, a powerful fire-demon mage, and even Kimara, said by many to be the greatest human archmage who ever lived.

 Alan Rayner
For the very heart of Philip Pullman’s trilogy pulsates with the underlying theme of an ancient and ongoing struggle between what the angel, Xaphania describes as the ‘wisdom’ to open human minds and the ‘stupidity’ that attempts to close them through the power of an external Authority.
This theme could not be more relevant to our modern human predicament in an increasingly uncertain and conflict-torn world where burgeoning population, globalized economic systems and advancing agricultural and industrial technologies are having an ever more profound impact.
Will and Lyra become separated by sealing the linings between their parallel universes and lose the intuitive powers that took them on the great adventure of their young lives by allowing them to wield the Subtle Knife and read the alethiometer.

It was just a funny (zufall) I don't know what that is in english, but I'm surprised that the name Xaphania is so popular.
Please sent me an e-mail because I would like to know more about YOUR Xaphania and who she is.
I think I might have e-mailed you about this already, but I admittedly did get the name 'Xaphania' from the Pullman books 'His Dark Materials.' I wish I hadn't, I feel very bad about it, but it fits her so well...

Xaphania - The commander of Lord Asriel's angels, Xaphania was one of the angels who originally rebelled (perhaps even the leader of the original rebellion, although this is never concerned).
Xaphania is one of the highest ranking angels, and is much stronger than Baruch and Balthamos.
She is described here: "Her appearance impressed Mrs.

 Angels   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Although some say that they were formed by the sun's rays, or metors, comets and asteroids, or maybe from the aurora borealis which is said to be light shinning in from other worlds.
However, Xaphania, an angel, told Lyra and Will that there were other ways of traveling from world to world that the angels use.
It uses the faculty of imagination, but that does not mean making things up.

 FictionPress.Com Profile : Xaphania   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Miscellaneous:Lives in the basement, has trained older cat to come on command, has no extracurricular activities, and is secretly very self-conscious.
The pseudonym 'Xaphania' was taken from Phillip Pullman's book series His Dark Materials (or whatever it was called), so he gets all the credit.
This was really the only notable thing ever written by Xaphania, and actually had around three chapters posted including the prologue.

 Penalizing Those Who Assist Criminals in Posting Letters - www.ezboard.com
Giving them four chances to stop this flagrant assistance to a criminal is more than fair.
For example, at present Xaphania, the San Elf of Set who currently aids the exiled criminal Changeman Shadowlurk in getting his messages to the post office is paid 50 gold a week to assist him.
It has to be enough to make them think otherwise, not so little they laugh, and no so much at first they are soon completely broke.

Well she was not as sad as the others because she could see what was in store for Will and Lyra in the future.
Well in the book Will asked if it was going to be just pretending and Xaphania said no. So it is real I guess.
Remember Xaphania says there's a way of traveling between worlds without windows, (p494 again) like angels, like the way John Parry did.
