I sort of did, actually, but it's really difficult to come up with something that doesn't just become a cheesy parody. It lacks the focus I'm looking for at the moment.

Speaking of focus, here are some elements I'm currrently considering including or drawing inspiration from:

- film noir
- Lovecraftian horror
- 1984's dystopia
- the Spanish Inquisition
- the Bureaucrats (Futurama)
- magic and magic users
- Rubacava (Grim Fandango)
- Gotham City

What associations does that spark with you?

For some reason, that ends up making me think of Sin City with monsters and magic, where red tape makes things difficult to deal with, and where they hardly get done because of the aforementioned red tape.

Good call, although I must admit I'm only familiar with the movie. What does the red tape do/signify?

Red tape (As being described by Wikipedia): "Red tape is an idiom that refers to excessive regulation or rigid conformity to formal rules that is considered redundant or bureaucratic and hinders or prevents action or decision-making. It is usually applied to governments, corporations, and other large organizations."

Still working on this one. Does anybody know any good sources of information on (fallen) angels, the biblical ones? The bible's an obvious one, though apparently it doesn't really offer that much insight at all. The only other sources I can think of are the Prophecy movies and a single tale from Neil Gaiman's Smoke and Mirrors.

Cheers!

At the risk of sounding like an asshole, have you tried Wikipedia?

Indeed I have, but the information there is mostly too cluttered by other religions' views on angels and comparable creatures. I could most likely find more of worth there if I dug around some more, but I'm starting to think I'll have better luck in fiction, based on the biblical concepts to a greater or lesser extent.
