{INT. MANSE, LEBAB – DAY}
The wall of the house is smooth, slippery, and illuminating light. Lucifer (an average man with an Asian-like face) sits alone on a seat in the middle of the house and suddenly stands.

LUCIFER

(folds his palms; a yellow light appears on his palms)
Archangels, come forth.

Twelve young men without wings appear, they sit on twelve seats, and a triangular table appears before them.

LUCIFER

Let us kneel before Holy Father; the Most High.

All the Archangels kneel. Then Lucifer stands and walks closer to the table before the Archangels. The table disappears.

LUCIFER

I am going to name you now before the eyes of the Elders and The Most High.

{HALL, MELTSAR}
A very big screen is below the Elders. The Elders sit and watch at the twelve Archangels through the screen below them.

YAKACH

I’m impressed.

TSALACH

Hmm… Brilliant creature! I like him.

CHEN

He’s trying to make everything transparent, such a perfect being.

YAKACH

He is very serious too, Father will be glad about this.

Shafat smiles.

{MANSE, LEBAB}
Lucifer’s eyes start to glow. All the other Archangels re-arrange themselves in a circle form.

LUCIFER

(walks to the first Archangel on his right)
Son of nine hundred & ninety-nine stars from Machar-Nogah, I name you MICHAEL. Stand.

Michael (a South American-like average man) stands.

(walks to the next Archangel)
Son of seven hundred & seventy-seven stars from Rahah-Kol, I name you ARIEL. Stand.

Ariel (an Egyptian-like average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)
Son of five hundred & fifty-five stars from Rahah-Kol, I name you RAPHAEL. Stand.

Raphael (an Indian-like average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)

Uriel (a Hebrew-Arabic-like average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)

Chamuel (a North American-like average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)

Selaphiel (a dark brown-skinned average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)
Son of three hundred & thirty-three stars from Olam-Chalam, I name you BARACHIEL. Stand.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)
Son of three hundred & thirty-nine stars from Olam-Chalam, I name you HANIEL. Stand.

Haniel (an Australian-like average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)
Son of two hundred and twenty-two stars from Olam-Machashebeth, I name you JEREMIEL. Stand.

Jeremiel (a Russian-like average man) stands.

LUCIFER

(walks to the next Archangel)
Son of one hundred and eleven stars from Olam-Machashebeth, I name you RAGUEL. Stand!

Raguel (a German-like average man with a slightly red skin) stands.

LUCIFER

I bless you all. Please sit down.

Everybody sits.

//All the Archangels slightly have a unique appearance from each other//

LUCIFER

(looks at Raguel)
Raguel.

RAGUEL

Yes?

LUCIFER

Summon two legion leaders of your clan to this council.
(Raguel closes his eyes. Two Indian-like angels with slight red skins; a female and a male, appear in the middle of the Archangels. The two angels face down)
Look up.
(The two angels look at him. He walks to the female angel and looks directly into her eyes and smiles)
I name you JOPHIEL.
(walks to the male angel and smiles)
And you! I name you METATRON.

Immediately, the names of the two angels appear on their right chest respectively. A discomforting look comes over Gabriel.

GABRIEL

Lucifer!

LUCIFER

(points at Gabriel to keep quiet)
Please.
(Gabriel keeps quiet and looks at him)
I know some of you may wonder why I named these angels myself.
(loudly)
Yes!
(softly)
They shall be at Shahar; the gate to Shamayim. Raguel shall be accountable to the ‘in and out’ of any being from Shamayim without the knowledge of this council or the Elders’.

{HALL, MELTSAR}

BERAKAH

He is just saying right?

YAKACH

Is there any law that states that?

SHAFAT

Well, to the glory of Holy Father, so be it.

AMAN

He is not supposed to name someone outside his clan.

ROSH-SERAPH

He is trying to express his free will.

YAKACH

I think he is overdoing it.

All the Elders astonishingly look at one another.

{MANSE, LEBAB}

LUCIFER

(points at Jophiel and Metatron)
You can now leave.

Jophiel and Metatron nod their heads in agreement and disappear. Lucifer raises his right hand; Shade-of-light comes out of his hand and covers the whole room.

{HALL, MELTSAR}
The screen before the Elders becomes blank.

{MANSE, LEBAB}

LUCIFER

Gabriel!

GABRIEL

You have no authority over angels of other clans when it comes to naming; we were not made that way.

LUCIFER

Well, I just did. Their names were accepted for eternity by nature, or didn’t you see it?

MICHAEL

(to Gabriel)
Let it be.

RAGUEL

To me, it’s an honour.

GABRIEL

Well, apologies, I thought things were not right.

LUCIFER

Make them right. Apology accepted. Besides what I did here was not done in the secret, I did it before The Most High and the Elders and I guess they seem to love it.
(stretches his left hand, a sparkling cup of wine appears in his hand, he sips, and walks closer to Gabriel)
Our precious Father and creator has given us dominion over Shamayim and all the Territories in it. You shall, therefore, assign Kings, Queens and Princes that shall govern your clan in your place, and it is through them you will communicate with your clan,
(backs the council)
They too shall assign Princes, Princesses, Governors and Presidents that shall rule their cities.
(walks to Michael and places his right hand on Michael’s right shoulder)
The least leader shall lead a legion. For every Territory must have cities based on hierarchy.

MICHAEL

Hierarchy? How can that be possible when they were all born at a time?

LUCIFER

Yeah! Born same time, but not with same powers, unless you want to compare yourself to Gabriel or an angel.
(Michael keeps a mean face at him. He focuses his eyes on Michael)
Michael, do not tell me that you are that novice about the powers that flow through your vein of which I can sense it in broad daylight.
(Michael blinks his eyes and touches his chin with a wondering face. He looks up)
Of course, not under the Shade-of-light.
(Michael nods)
Let me get this to the notice of all of you if you pretend you don’t know; you can give powers to an angel or collect powers from them.

MICHAEL

We know but isn’t that a bad idea?

LUCIFER

Bad idea? What are you saying, Michael? Gabriel, tell him what’s on my mind.
(Gabriel keeps quiet)
Oh! Sorry, I forgot you can’t read anyone under the Shade-of-light. That’s really humiliating to someone of your calibre.
(his seat moves automatically and stays behind him. He sits directly opposite Michael and looks at him eyeballs to eyeballs)
We were given the law at birth. Michael, it is against no law, you have the choice to do whatever you like with your clan provided Holy Father‘s glory is the end.

CHAMUEL

(nods amazingly)
Oh, I see!

URIEL

(looks at Chamuel and nods)
Well, nice!

LUCIFER

Let us rise.

All the Archangels stand. They raise their two hands together. Shade-of-light goes off and suddenly, Tub (one of the Elders) appears behind Lucifer.

TUB

Come!

LUCIFER

Yes?
(turns back and looks at Tub with respect by slightly bowing his head)

TUB

All of you, to the council of the Elders.

Tub spreads a red powder from his palm, and all of them disappear from Lebab at the speed of light.

{HALL/ROUND-ROOM, MELTSAR}
Tub and the twelve Archangels appear in the hall. Then the hall changes to a round room. A round dais comes out of the ground. The Elders surround the dais. Rosh-Seraph and Shafat step unto the dais and walk to the centre in uniform.

All the Archangels appear around Rosh-Seraph & Shafat on the dais.

SHAFAT

(to Archangels)
Kneel.

All the Archangels kneel. Though Rosh-Seraph is standing with Shafat, none of the Archangels can see Rosh-Seraph.

SHAFAT

(to Rosh-Seraph)
Stay before me as I make this sacrament.

Lucifer and Michael glance at each other because they cannot see the person Shafat is talking to. Rosh-Seraph walks to the front of Shafat and faces him.

SHAFAT

Lucifer, you have honoured your Father; our ultimate Creator by naming your kind with beautiful names for his glory.
(opens his right hand and an illuminating bottle of oil appears in his hand)
In confirmation of the naming, we seal this sacrament with love forever.

ALL THE ELDERS

(in unison)
Amen!

Shafat draws a circle in between Rosh-Seraph and himself. A tick blue light comes out of the head of Shafat, becomes a ring of light, and surround all the Elders.

SHAFAT

(to the Archangels)
You shall come and kneel in this circle in the order you were named.
(Lucifer disappears from where he was kneeling and appears in the circle between Rosh-Seraph and him. He pours the oil on Lucifer’s head)

YAKACH

What was that for?

ROSH-SERAPH

The Archangels are not easy to trust.

OSHER

How was that possible?

HUPOMONE

We agreed to face the consequences. I was a bit against their free will. The question should be: what should we do now?

SHAFAT

I’m afraid that even Rosh doesn’t have an answer to that question.

QARA

(to Shafat)
I thought you said we can control them.

ROSH-SERAPH

Hmm… Let’s wait and see what will happen.

YAKACH

Well, I think that’s an answer.
