"Angels are very single minded beings. I once heard of an infamous thief who stole a song-jewel from the Palace of Night. He shook the angel that tried to track him down, sold the jewel, moved offworld, happily retired, had several children, and was relaxing in his hammock one day nearly thirty years later when the exact same angel strode up to him, cracked him in the jaw, and dragged him off to prison for theft. The angel was absolutely filthy with dust and mud, having been ceaselessly working to track him down every moment of every day that had passed since. I was told after the arrest it took thirty minutes to wash off for 'efficiency' reasons and then immediately returned to its patrol route."
