The Nephilim were Angelic in nature...gigantic humanoids that were as tall as 9 feet and were very well built. They descended to earth and, against
god's wishes, taught humanity "forbidden skills" such as the ability to write, chart the skies, and heal wounds. I've read quite a lot about the
Nephilim (Also called watchers by the apocryphal studies) because I've written a sci-fi novel which follows the life of one of them, the son of
Kokabel. (Still trying to get it published)
They were punished by god for teaching humans their skills (There were over 200 of them with about 20 "Commanders") and were cursed with the desire
to ingest blood and flesh to survive. Supposedly, they all died, and those that remained were banished to hell.
