A God Slayer, also known as Divine Slayer, is a being that has committed the action of Deicide, that is slaying a god.
A God Slayer can kill any deity/deities or divine embodiment that they may choose to get rid of. They are usually resistant to the effects of a deity and are capable of killing the specified deity. Any one who has the power to cut down a godly entity is known as a "Godslayer," though how one becomes one is unknown.
There is one way that are believed to create godslayers which is for a powerful entity, like a major God or True Archangel, can blessed a lesser being to be used as a weapon to use for their own goals.
Certain beings can't be a god slayer as they are too powerful that the term "God Slayer" would be redundant. So such beings like other Deities, Greater Angels, Greater Demons, Fae, Aeons, Archons, and other such beings are good examples of this, however beings such as Humans, Demigods, lesser demons, and other mortal beings can be God Slayers.
