Angels Landing is one of the most popular destinations in Zion National Park. Many who go there want to experience untamed adventure and get a classic photograph. Its' now famous name descends from Methodist minister Frederick Vining Fisher who, on his first visit to Zion Canyon in 1916 allegedly quipped only an angel could land there.
Liam's body was buried; at some point during the night, he rose again. Darla visited his grave, where he had his first taste of blood when a groundskeeper caught them and accused them of being grave robbers. In response to Darla's assertion, Liam set about slaughtering his entire village. First, he massacred his own family, whose blood he later described as the "sweetest of all." Liam's little sister, Kathy, had believed her brother had returned to her as an angel, and ignorantly invited him inside the family home. He killed her first, and then murdered his mother. As he killed his father, Liam boasted that despite his father's disapproval, he had managed to make something of himself after all. Whilst gloating over his father's corpse, Darla cruelly deflated Liam, claiming that in the end, his father had claimed the victory because his condemnation would haunt Liam for the remainder of his existence, while his father's suffering, while painful, had been very brief.
Liam took the name "Angelus," presumably inspired by his sister's mistaken belief that he was an angel. He was later described in historical volumes as the "one with the angelic face," and the "demon with the face of an angel." After leaving Ireland behind, Angelus and Darla cut a bloody swath through Wales and Northern England before reaching London in 1760. During Angelus' first meeting with Darla's sire, the Master, he openly mocked the older vampire, and showed no fear despite the Master's greater age, power and authority. Angelus expressed no interest in the Order of Aurelius' plan to destroy the human world and bring about the return of the Old Ones, as he preferred the hedonistic pleasures of the world above. Ironically, Angelus' protégé Spike would betray him and foil his own plan to destroy the world over two centuries later for similar reasons. Afterward, he confronted Darla about her decision to remain underground; won over by Angelus' fearlessness, Darla chose to leave with Angelus, and temporarily abandoned her sire and Master.
Angel was considered physically attractive, noted especially for his title as the "one with the angelic face." After his first meeting with Buffy, which left her with a bad impression, she still described him as "gorgeous," calling him a "honey," claiming most girls would find him attractive "if they [had] eyes," describing him as a "hunk," and saying that his eyes were "penetrating." Cordelia, Faith, Fred, Kendra Young, Anya Jenkins had also praised him physically. Men had also complimented his appearance; Xander, though in anguish, commented that Angel was "buff" and "a very attractive man" when first seeing him, Oliver Simon stated that Angel was a "beautiful man," and a commercial director assumed he was a model.
Use of the term in some churches to refer to a church official derives from interpreting the "angels" of the Seven churches of Asia in Revelation as being bishops or ministers rather than angelic beings.
