Dominion (angel)

Dominion is an order of angels among angels, archangels, principalities, powers, virtues, dominions, thrones, cherubim, and seraphim.

Also known as the Hashmallim, the dominations act as a sort of middle management between the upper choir and the lower, holding the task of regulating the duties of lower angels. They receive their orders from the seraphim and cherubim and are responsible for ensuring that the cosmos remains in order. It is only with extreme rarity that the dominations make themselves physically known to mortals, instead quietly concerning themselves with the details of existence.
