The term "Manifestation" simply describes how a supernatural entity chooses to occur or exist on Earth. Angels and Demons manifest and physical appear on Earth via possessing a human host. Although Angels require the permission and consent of the human host for possession to be possible, whereas Demons can involuntary claim a human's body without the consent of the human host. Cupid angels seem capable of instantaneous manifestation. Gods and Ghosts, however, do not use a human host to exist physically on Earth, instead they assume human form, as do the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. All of the information documented below only describes the first time a particular important Angel or Demon manifests on Earth using a human host.
