The Archangels & Ambassadors
"I want to bring to light the wonderful admins & moderators that have stepped in to help with everything Dutch Angel Dragon related. Without them none of this could be possible!" ~Ino
Archangels and Ambassadors are the dedicated group of volunteers that have taken leadership roles in the community to oversee and contribute to the many online pages and groups, infrastructure, artwork, lore, and/or convention events around the world. Many have been participating since the species was first opened to the public and are passionate about seeing the Dutch Angel Dragon community continue to thrive. Some volunteers have come and gone but their contributions will always be remembered.

If there is one thing you should know about Torch right off the get go, is that he is a helpful lil scamp and always want to see others smile no matter the situation. A bit of a happy derp who is protective of the other angels in the group as well as friend but will protect all if the need arises. Torch has been an admin since Telephone opened the group. He started by helping out on the FA page when it first came online, then when that had to close, he began (and is currently) helping out on the Facebook page.
When Torch isn't running around starting small accidental fires with his cuteness, he is a police officer in North Carolina, a veteran Marine, long time EMT, and volunteer firefighter. As an admin, he will help you with any questions you may have and if he doesn't know the answer, he will find out for you as soon as he can...no worries! Torch has been around as a furry for several years but the dragon itself has been around since about beginning to mid 2014.

Voodoo has a sugar skull based design, who is a happy, friendly, down to earth Dutch and she specializes in summoning and spells. After the great war she fell into the Abyss, only to eventually be called back from it by a small child living in the bayou who was desperate for a friend. Upon the unexpected death of the child at the hands of soldiers who raided the child's home, Voodoo became so upset that another dragon was summoned from the abyss; a Dutch who heard her despair and came to sooth her sorrow. He would become known as Magic and would become Voodoo's friend and partner.
Voodoo is a wonderful addition to the admin team. She will answer any questions to the best of her ability and is more than willing to help as much as she can with any issues.
Outside of admin work Voodoo is owner of Monster Cat Creations LLC, a suit building company based in Pennsylvania, and currently works there full time. Likely places you will find Voodoo are Pittsburgh fur meets, OhayoCon, Anthrocon, FurTheMore and Midwest FurFest. She’s very friendly, so don’t be afraid to say hi if you see her!

Many ambassadors are international, able to speak other languages to bring the Dutch Angel Dragon community to those who might not know English well or who are interested in establishing a greater sense of community in their areas of the world. Some ambassadors will have the ability to host official events and panels at conventions the Archangels cannot attend.
