Latin for air; sky. The Haven below Heaven. A realm created by Khavah, the Empress Dowager that oversees the Royal Families of Heaven. It allows The Fallen and Luminary Mutare to help govern the Human World towards prosperity through two ways: Foresight -through The Tambour- and time control. Causutum Chambers- are the main powers the realm controls. It allows them the ability to intercede against an erroneous current reality and guide it back on the right path.
Caeli was a gift from Khavah after she realized that the influence The Fallen was bestowing to the humans was actually positive. She created Caeli and left it in The Fallen's authority. It would be the closest they could ever be to Heaven again.
Elysian is the capital city of Caeli and the place where most Mutare and Root Watcher's work and live.
Khavah elected the four most empathetic children as the High Commanders of Caeli. They were given a home full of luxury to intermingle with their sacrifice and the hard work that they would do while in the realm. Au Courant is that home.

Bloody Angle/Tong Wars/Tong Tunnels
Doyers Street is a 200 feet (61 m) - long street in the heart of Chinatown in the New York City borough of Manhattan. Doyers Street
Early in the century, the bend in the street became known as "the Bloody Angle" because of numerous shootings among the Tong Gangs of Chinatown that lasted into the 1930s. Hatchets were frequently used, leading to the creation of the expression, "hatchet man". In 1994, law enforcement officials said that more people died violently at the "Bloody Angle" than at any other street intersection in the United States.
For a time, its sharp curve earned Doyle Street the nickname of "Bloody Angle," as it was the site of numerous gang street battles and murders. An alleged network of tunnels connecting several buildings also made for easy getaways. You can see how sharp the curve is. Bloody Angle -Huffington Post
The Tong Wars were fought not only on the streets and alleys of the Chinatown, but also on the rooftops in a deadly guerrilla warfare-like fashion. In a large number of cases, a tong war was started over the issue of a woman, whether it be the failure of one tong to fully pay for a slave-girl of another tong (As in the case of the Bing On tong - Wah Sin San Fan tong War) or just for the sheer fact of the limited amount of Chinese women in the area during the time (Hop Sing tong- Suey Sing tong War). Other tong wars started due to a variety of issues, such as defamation of a rival tong's "face" to attempting to take another tong's business. Tong Wars
