    What are Ira? I mean the demons that are spawned by the Avatar of Wrath. Is there any lore at all regarding them?

    there is an old thread with that exact question :
    https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/what-is-an-ira.280421/

    the most relevant post of that thread is this one by MC, which is the most probable :
    in that case Angels refer to true demons , demons created by the related god and not a mortal soul turned demon.

    They also have their own entry in the bestiary, but which doesn't give much more info :

    That's more or less all we know at this point. You can try asking Kael directly on the ffh subreddit if you need more details : https://www.reddit.com/r/fallfromheaven/

    See, I might not have thought much of the lore concerning Ira except that I had a professor named Ira (yes, Jewish) way back in the day. So now, whenever an Ira is attacking, I think of my funny old professor! :lol:

    Thank you, black_imperator!

    Well, in the mod the name must come from the Latin word ira (pronounced ee-ra), meaning "wrath." As I said, I just decided to have a little fun with the name in coming up with events way back when.

    Ahhh. Hence the English word "ire", I bet. Never thought of that.
