comment How did Vashti grow a tail?
@gt6989b Thank you. I am not sure why Gavriel was the Angel of choice. I am not sure also what you mean by breaking the rules. The use of an Angel is a metaphor for some causative agent that allowed Vashti to perceive an idea that under normal circumstances would be beyond her. I am not certain what the specific agent of "Gavriel" teaches us. Something to think about. Thanks.

I have heard that answer before, but is there a source for the answer?

I wonder if it was simply a sociological phenomena and that is why is stuck or if there was an actual idea that was being conveyed by keeping the name. As if to say it is only a temporary blessing or something along those lines.
