Also Called

  • Ophanim Mimicry


User with this ability either is or can transform into a Ophanim, (also: ophanim or ofanim, Ophde. Hebrew "wheels", singular ophan) refer to the wheels seen on Ezekiel's and have been associated with Daniel's vision (mentioned as galgal, traditionally "the wheels of galgallin", in "fiery flame" and "burning fire") of the four, eye-covered wheels (each composed of two nested wheels), that move next to the winged Cherubim, beneath the throne of God. These are first construed as angels in one of the Dead Sea scrolls, and as a class of celestial beings in late sections of the Book of Enoch where with the Cherubim and Seraphim they never sleep, but guard the throne of God.

Ophanim are associated with fire and movement. They appear either as wheels:

This was the appearance and structure of the wheels: They sparkled like topaz, and all four looked alike. Each appeared to be made like a wheel intersecting a wheel. (...) Their rims were high and awesome, and all four rims were full of eyes all around.

Other descriptions show them as wheels of fire. In more modern descriptions they may appear as humanoid forms of fire or as mortals with fiery associations (restless, temperamental, agitated, etc.).
