And there was gathered in solemn array the Cherubic hosts and there ruled among them
Shadiel, and there also gathered there a remnant of the Teraphim, and there presided
among them Doriel and Lorriel, being made husband and wife forever.
Summary: Lorriel, with her Beloved husband, Doriel, were high ranking Teraphim of
the Elohim who became troubled after Shaemdiel, the Chief Archon, had gathered the
Teraphim to voice his skepticism towards God’s Law of Agency. Shaemdiel hoped to
garner support for an alternate way of progression (inspired somewhat by the Demiurge),
referred to as the Law of Immediate Recompense (E:2:8-15).
After Shaemdiel’s address, several Teraphim gathered in counsel to discuss what action
to take, for as expressed by Doriel, it was unseemly to disregard the words of the
Chief Archon, yet it was not yet clear whether Shaemdiel’s intentions were in alignment
with the will of Elohim (E:2:16-26). While Zerrah of Adorea encouraged faith and
trust in Shaemdiel (E:2:27-33), Lorriel of Ramnios disagreed, reminding the Teraphim
that Shaemdiel did not have the proper authority to assume the mind and will of the
Elohim, and that his words would only bring darkness and confusion (E:2:34-48). The
council of Teraphim came to agree with Lorriel, and an appeal was made to the House
of Mithron for assistance in the matter (E:2:49).
